When First Lady Michelle Obama gave a speech last week in New Hampshire, many of her listeners were moved and inspired.
The elegant, articulate wife of our President spoke with passion about the sexual assaults on so many women in our country. She spoke about something that at least 20 percent of American women have experienced.
The unwanted grab, grope, kiss, hug, wrestling match. So many women have been through the humiliation of this kind of act.
With the recent tape release of Donald Trump and his good buddy Billy Bush bragging about assaulting unwilling women, the topic of sexual assault was brought front and center.
Mrs. Obama felt that it was necessary to address her own concerns as well as the situation that is faced by so many women.
She gave a powerful speech in Manchester, New Hampshire last week. Many of those in the room, including a close friend of mine, were victims of sexual assault themselves.
The speech given by Mrs. Obama was eloquent, emotional, and very, very powerful. Many supporters of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton found the speech to be a true turning point in this disturbing election.
What is even more important, though, and much more meaningful, is that even conservative pundits found the speech to be important and effective.

In fact, famously conservative TV and radio host Glenn Beck says that the speech was “the most effective political speech since Ronald Reagan.” He added this, though:
“It kills me to say that.”
Wow. Invoking the name of conservative god Reagan makes the statement even more influential.
Glenn Beck is not a fan of Donald Trump, perhaps because he possesses both an education and a brain. However, he is also no fan of the liberal Democrats.
Glenn Beck is squirming like a bug on the tip of a pin. He doesn’t know what to do or where to turn.
He knows, though, that when a speech is profound, powerful, moving and incredibly important, it doesn’t matter who says it.
You have to admit that a historic moment is exactly that.
