Sacrifice: Michelle Obama’s Lavish West Coast Fundraising Swing Postponed Due to Obama Shutdown

Don’t be surprised to see her husband appear with some noticeable bruises after he delivered the bad news to The Tower of Glower.

Michelle Obama’s West Coast fundraising swing set for this weekend has been canceled because of the government shutdown, according to a Democratic source with knowledge of the trip.

The first lady was scheduled to be in Los Angeles on Friday and in San Francisco on Sunday.

Ironically, her Los Angeles stop was to make up for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser President Obama was to attend in September but had to cancel because of the crisis in Syria.

Ah, remember that Syria fiasco? Well, he simply created a new one to distract from that: His government shutdown.

The first lady was also set to attend a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser in San Francisco with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.).

In typical fashion, they misreported the reality. These events are merely postponed, not really canceled. So expects the Obamas to get back to business as usual once his shutdown distraction has passed. In other words, campaigning full-time on the public dime.
