Welcome to Utah!

Please go home and ask your husband to stop spending other people's money and enslaving future generations by his excessive spending.

And, please come back as a former First Lady, and show the kids some of Utah's great features when you are spending your own money.

'Bush Administration Adds $4 Trillion To National Debt' - by Mark Knoller - CBS News - 09/29/08

'It'll be the 7th time the debt limit (ceiling) has been raised during this administration. In fact it was just two months ago, on July 30, that President Bush signed the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, which contained a provision raising the debt ceiling to $10.615 trillion.'

1) This is the First lady. She does not make national policy.

2) The Republican party raised the debt ceiling seven times and doubled the national debt.

3) Have some class.

Welcome to Utah Mrs. Obama.

@Pagan... It is true that Mr. Bush added $4 Trillion to our National debt in 8 years, but why don't you take a look at how much Mr. Obama has added in a little over a year and a half?

2) The Republican party raised the debt ceiling seven times and doubled the national debt.

What was the result of the 2008 elections? Let's see..Democrat President, Democrat controlled House AND Senate.

The American people had enough of the spending and expected the Democrats to avoid the spending.

If you agree to:

a) All land should be for public purposes
b) Progressive or graduated income tax
c) No rights of inheritance
d) Centralize credit to the state
e) Centralize means of communication and transportation to the state
f) Improve land in accordance with a common plan
g) Equal liability of all to work.
h) Combining agriculture and manufacture industries and distributing population throughout country
i) Free education for all children in public schools

So, I'm a communist....

because you THINK I am?

Isn't that like I'm a terrorist because you think I am? Should I get packed for Gitmo, another George W. Bush creation?

As for healthcare, how much would it cost to repeal?

Mrs Obama, tell your husband not to cave to the Republicans, even if it means a default! Let's have this fight now!


Mrs. Obama welcome to our state. I hope you are able to enjoy yourself here. Now Pagan I find your interest in Bush fascinating. You spend so much of your time worrying about Bush, I think it may be time to consult a doctor. Bush spent way too much money, and Obama is spending at an even faster rate, neither was nor is good for America. Bush was not acting conservatively, obviously. Pagan Obama 2012-I think you're one of the only ones who feel this way any more. CNN: liberals abandoning Obama. Good news for America bad news for Obama.

Wait...the Obamas don't have access to enough of our money, they need to fundraise for more?

I never said I think you are a communist.

I was only letting people learn what the Communist Party's foundations were and using shock and awe to help them see how close their political and social views may be to Communism.

Who or what is Wellpoint?
A Health Plan company in Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. They serve members in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Not in Utah. I live in Utah. I have no concern over the affairs of a health care company not in Utah.

So happy Michelle has come to Utah. Would love to have welcomed her.
What a lovely, classy lady she is.
So proud to be a Dem! What a great President we have, a man with such knowledge and great tenacity to fight for what is best for the United States!
Obama 2012!

Pagan, Bush being wrong doesn't make Obama right for doing the same thing.

I'm glad the first lady came to Utah. Even if i am opposed to the policies that her husband's administration has set forth, i'm all for high profile individuals coming to this great state.

Welcome to Utah, Mrs. Obama!

Please ignore the few here who do not understand how to be hospitable. They are truly few in numbers in this state, and most are happy you have chosen to visit our state, and absolutely welcome you, no matter their political beliefs.

I would hope that you could someday return to see more of the state - Park City is great, but Utah is full of awesome sights, and the people, for the most part, are wonderful, warm and kind.

SO WELCOME TO UTAH!!! Thank you so much for coming!

Indeed we are a polarized nation, teetering on the brink, each half believing their method of government is the only true direction the nation should take. And startling is the fact that we live amongst each other, no longer a nation divided between north and south.

Just like the inpossible wars we are fighting against an unseen enemy hiding within the population. It is no longer a definable nation state we oppose.

At home the enemy is within, ever slouching toward gomorrah...
