Moochelle Taking on ‘More Prominent Role’ in Flailing Obama Campaign

Posted by on Jul 19, 2012 at 6:49 am

Well, since she’s going to be so front and center, she’s now fair game.

Team Romney won’t ever say a critical word. But we can.

Taking on a more prominent political role, first lady Michelle Obama is launching a nationwide effort to motivate every supporter of President Barack Obama to get more involved in his re-election campaign — and bring along somebody else, too.

The “It Takes One” program urges supporters to make a difference in this election, and to “start by taking one action that will help grow our campaign,” Mrs. Obama says. In a three-minute video message to supporters being released Thursday, the first lady tells supporters that with a tighter election than 2008 likely this fall, “in the end it could all come down to those last few thousand votes in a single state.”

Which explains why they’re so desperately fighting voter ID laws nationwide. Make sure they can steal every vote possible.

The Obama campaign said Mrs. Obama would lead the “It Takes One” effort, which will include digital, paid media and grassroots organizing. Campaign officials said Mrs. Obama would be the face of the effort and personally participate in many It Takes One events as she travels the country, recruiting neighborhood team leaders, speaking to groups of women to ask them to volunteer and stopping by voter registration events.

That represents a significant increase in the first lady’s role in the campaign. Already, she has been traveling the country to raise money for the campaign, and making appearances at rallies designed to energize volunteers and supporters.

I guess she won’t be running around telling us how for the first time she’s proud to be an American. She’ll leave it to her husband to trash Americans, instead.

    It seems like everytime she is trotted out to “save the day” after a news cycle or so, it shows her doing much more harm than good, so go for it, this too will backfire, but use all your assets now, what they hey?

    She’s apparently terrified of the prospect of having to pay for her own vacations starting in 2013.

    I’ll bet she does a lot of appearances in the local cemeteries. The “dead vote” may just be what puts Omama over the top this year. Especially in Illinois.

    Illinois isn’t in play so she’ll skip that. The more desperate Zero gets–and he’s pretty desperate if the Worf is hitting the hustings–watch him do something grandiose like pardoning every incarcerated dude to free up the felon vote. Well…beyond the normal Dem take of their vote, that is.

    LOL. Grifter/Bitch in Chief.
    Has about as much class as a drunk in a liquor store with a discount coupon.

    Y’all mean, ‘Mooch’/ ‘Chewie’/ ‘Her Assness’/…all these were out of bounds and off limits?

    Well shit…I never did get that memo….LMFAO!!!!

    She makes Hillary look sane, this one.

    I really cannot recall a more despised First Lady than Mooch…and rightfully so.

    Oops, is that un-PC of me?

    …thanks goodness; it’s been about 15 seconds since the LAST time the Angriest Woman in America was in front of a camera. i thought she’d emigrated or something

    I like the title. “Moochelle” LOL. A more active role in “flailing” campaign.

    Yeah, if there’s some flailing, or pounding, or anything else that utilizes upper body strength then Michelle Obama is your man.

    Re: “Which explains why they’re so desperately fighting voter ID laws nationwide. Make sure they can steal every vote possible.”

    Here is what is happening in a few states with new ID laws.

    Relying on the Wisconsin constitution, two judges in that state recently struck down their onerous voter ID law, finding that its requirements were “unlikely to protect the electoral process,” and substantially impaired the right to vote as guaranteed by the state constitution.

    The Missouri Supreme Court also tossed voter ID based on the state constitution in 2006.

    Pennsylvania’s defense of its law is especially weak. The state has already admitted that there have been no investigations or findings of in-person voter fraud in Pennsylvania — the crime the law is designed to stop. That’s right, not a single one.

    If there is any evidence showing vote stealing it might be a good idea to mention those events.
