The WH transcript left out “papers” and just put “crosstalk”. Just like they omitted “violation of the Constitution” from the WH press briefing discussion of birth certificate. There was crosstalk but it is also clear what was said.
The morning following the second State Dinner, First Lady Michelle Obama and First Lady Margarita Zavala of Mexico visited second-graders at the New Hampshire Estates Elementary School in Silver Spring, MD.
Does Mrs Obama speak a second language?
[Red is what was said.]
STUDENT: Mrs. Obama, I have a question.
MRS. OBAMA: What’s your question?
STUDENT: I have a question. My mom said — my mom said that — I think that she says that Barack Obama is taking everybody away that doesn’t have papers.
MRS. OBAMA: Yeah, well, that’s something that we have to work on, right, to make sure that people can be here with the right kind of papers, right? That’s exactly right.
STUDENT: But my mom doesn’t have … (crosstalk).
[STUDENT: But my mom doesn’t have papers.]
MRS. OBAMA: Yeah, well, we have to work on that. We have to fix that, and that everybody has got to work together in Congress to make sure that that happens. That’s right.
I’ve seen it written as “my mom doesn’t have any papers” but that’s not what I heard.
No one in barry’s administration has spoken with AZ Gov Brewer despite her numerous calls and letters. That no one includes barry, Secy of Homeland Defense/Customs Border Patrol Janet Napolitano and First Lady Michelle Obama.
Even as she sits there telling a child everybody has to work together, she knows her husband hasn’t even respected the issue enough to respond with simple courtesy to the person who has the direct power to do something about the law he called “misdirected” and said could be “applied in a discriminatory fashion”.
Folks wonder the anger?
