As polling data show Romney making gains among all the traditional voting blocsmen, women, whites, minorities, Jews, Christiansthe need for the Obama campaign to find replacement votes has inspired First Lady Michelle Obama to make an appeal for the knucklehead vote.
At a campaign rally in Ohio, Michelle urged supporters to leave no stone unturned in the search for votes. Talk to everyone you knowyour friends, your neighbors, that cousin you havent seen in a while, that student sitting next to you in class, you know hes kind of a knucklehead. Hes not into politics. He doesnt know the issues or the candidates. But guess what, his vote counts the same as that of the most informed expert.
Of course, getting a knucklehead to make the effort to vote may prove a challenge, she continued. He may figure why should I have to get off my duff to go vote. You tell him that getting off your duff on one day to vote is a lot easier than getting off your duff everyday to go to work. And thats whatll happen if we let the Republicans win this election.
In addition to the 32% gain in welfare benefits that has transpired during her husbands first term, Michelle promised further gains in the next four years. You know how the Affordable Care Act requires parents to carry their children on their health insurance until theyre 26, Michelle reminded. Well, health care isnt all a person needs to live. What about food and shelter?
Michelle said her husband is looking at a possible Executive Order that would bar any parent from forcing a child to move out against his or her will. Its your home, too, she contended. Youve spent your whole life there. Why should your parents be permitted to kick you out based on their one-sided opinion that its time you should take care of yourself? A persons needs dont stop just because you get older.
