Michelle Obama Speech to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte NC

Skooter reporting 09/05/12

In a prime time Democratic Convention speech, First lady Michelle Obama affectionately praised her husband Tuesday night as a devoted husband and caring father at home and a "man we can trust" to revitalize the nation's weak economy as president, signaling the country to return him to the White House regardless of excruciatingly slow recovery from recession.

She told a nation impatient with slow economic progress and doggedly high unemployment of 8.3 percent that the president reminds her that we are playing a long game here, and that change is hard, and change is slow and it never happens all at the same time. But in the end, we get there, we always do. She said in a speech that brought together scenes from 23 years of marriages with the Obamas' time in the White House.

Mrs. Obama, given a standing ovation and describing herself as the "mom in chief," and didn’t mention the Republican challenger Mitt Romney. But those who were ahead of her to the stage on the first night of the president's convention were contemptuous.
