Michelle Obama Campaigns in New York

Monday, October 18, 2010

WNYC

Michelle Obama is coming to the tri-state area Monday as she continues to stump for Democratic candidates. 

The First Lady will be in New York Monday night for a Broadway fundraiser hosted by actress Sarah Jessica Parker. She will also travel to Stamford, CT to raise money for state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, who is in a close race for a U.S. Senate seat. President Obama has already come to Connecticut to help follow Democrat Blumenthal, who faces former wrestling executive, Linda McMahon.

Before coming to New York, Michelle Obama campaigned with her husband in Ohio to support Democrat Governor Ted Strickland. This is the first time the couple has campaigned together since the President's 2008 election. The New York Times reports these visits are part of a two week trip to campaign for Democratic support in the approaching elections.

Michelle Obama has largely stayed out of politics since moving to the White House, but her popularity ratings have remained high while the President's have fallen, making her a valuable asset on the campaign trail.

That's OUR First Lady! Bravo, absolutely BRAVO.

It's a wonderful thing to see our First Family truly engaged and hands on. CHANGE is never easy and you have those who are nothing but miserable and will NEVER voice any word of encouragement or faith, but only negativity and bitterness because they want FAILURE rather than SUCCESS. These are the same folks who want everyone just as miserable as they are.

I'm very PROUD of President Obama and First Lady Michele Obama. They are neither perfect, but at least they STEPPED UP to make a difference. That's more than I can say for all the "haters" who do nothing but criticize and bash them while sitting on the sidelines doing nothing but complaining and whining. Those that shout the loudest are the ones who benefit the most from President Obama's success but are too selfish and self-centered to speak the truth.

President Obama could FIX everything wrong with our country TODAY and these same "haters" would FIND something to complain and voice hatred about. Bottom line.
