Michelle Obama Visiting Eastern Carolina

Michelle Obama will make her first visit to Eastern Carolina, hours before Sarah Palin campaigns in Greenville.

The wife of the Democratic nominee will make a campaign stop in Jacksonville Tuesday afternoon.

The campaign says Obama will host a community event with military families.

The event will be held at the Jacksonville Commons Recreation Center, 100 Recreation Lane. Doors open at noon, with the program beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The Obama-Biden campaign says those wishing to attend do not need tickets, but they are strongly encouraging people to use an on-line RSVP. To RSVP go to www.nc.barackobama.com

    Why do we as americans have to make everything a black and white issue? I often find it difficult to understand why Obama is getting so much negativity yet no one has talked about the issue with Palin's daughter which has been reported that her daughter is pregnant by an african american? Let's give credit where credit is due and stop being so critical. Have you compared educational backgrounds of the candidates? Obama has done an exceptional job representing ALL. I am confident he will be our next president!!!

    All this race discussion!!!!! For the record, I am a white female who is voting for McCain.  Why? Because, above everything else, I am a conservative and will never support a liberal.  The liberal philosophy has nearly destroyed everything American in our society. All the proven strong values that have made this country great, the freedoms afforded everyone have been eroded, not by George Bush, as the libs would have you believe, but by the liberals,themselves. Analyze any problem in our society; education, poverty, teen-age pregnancy, the economy, drugs, crime, on and on, and you realize the liberal view is the culprit. The basic views of no responsibility for one's action, rather blame others, can explain many of our problems. The justice system doesn't hold criminals responsible, the school systems won't hold students and parents responsible, parents won't hold their kids responsible, and individuals won't hold themselves responsible. Didn't use to be that way. God Help Us!!!!!!

    It is absolutely amazing how ill-informed so many people are. For example, the No Child Left Behind legislation was co-written by Ted Kennedy. That's right, the almighty Democratic icon never charged or convicted for killing his "friend" in a car accident. George Bush is blamed completely for this bill and Kennedy has removed himself for any responsibility. Bet most teachers didn't know that. Secondly, I honestly don't know what some in this country, including Obama, are going to do after January. Who will they blame for the ills in our society. George will be back in Texas. Don't blame him. But, we all know they will continue to put everything on this shoulders, even, then. Because, you see, it has worked. During the first six years of Pres. Bush's tenure, things were pretty good. You never hear about the actual real numbers. For example, unemployment was the lowest in many years. Didn't know that did you and some probably don't care. Only want to hear the hate mongering.

    She has as much business being First Lady as I do being a Stealth pilot.
