A new right wing freak-out is coming over First Lady Michelle Obama’s comments, “Hadiya Pendleton was me, and I was her.” Of course, they will throw in President Obama’s comment if he had a son he would look like Trayvon Martin. You recall that right wing freak out, right?
“Hadiya Pendleton was me, and I was her,” Obama said at a fundraising lunch for a public-private partnership aimed at giving support to young Chicagoans and making neighborhoods safer. “But I got to grow up and go to Princeton and Harvard Law School and have a career and family and the most blessed life I could ever imagine.”
“And Hadiya? Oh, we know that story,” she said, recounting the life that took the 15-year-old to Washington for President Obama’s Inauguration one week and dead on the South Side of Chicago the next. Source
