Michelle Obama To Ohio Supporters: Vote; A Second Term Isn't Certain Andrew Rafferty

CINCINNATI, OH – A marching band took to the streets of downtown here Tuesday, leading the crowd to a destination not usually associated with much fanfare: the voting booth.

On the opening day of early voting in the Buckeye State, first lady Michelle Obama rallied 6,800 supporters at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati.

"Here in Ohio, it is already election day," she said, flanked by a large banner that read “Cincinnati fired up! Ready to vote!”

The first lady encouraged the large and boisterous crowd to make the short walk directly from the rally to the Hamilton County Board of Elections where they could become some of the first Americans to cast their ballots for President Barack Obama's re-election. The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows the president maintaining a slight lead nationally over Republican challenger Mitt Romney, and a recent polls show that lead is even bigger in Ohio.

Even with the positive polls, Michelle Obama warned supporters that a second term for her husband is far from certain, which is why they need to start voting.

"Thirty-five days is a long, long time in an election. No one should be comfortable," she said. She later added: "I'm going to be honest with you, this journey is going to be hard, let’s count on that. And there are going to be plenty of ups and downs for the rest of the way."


"Back in 2008, back then we won Ohio by about 262,000 votes," she said. "Now that might sound like a lot, but when you break that number down, and you spread it across all the precincts, that is just 24 votes per precinct ... That could mean just .....

Ya gotta read the comments section to see how uninformed/misinformed, hate filled and four mouthed the Obama supporters are. It is pathetic. These people really vote and our country could end up belonging to them again.

Moooochelle. A second term is not certain? It’s not likely IMHO.

Pack your bags for Hawaii!

No, a second term for the Kenyan isn’t certain, Michelle, but what is certain is the misery his presidency will cause for decades to come.

it depends. If we are complacent and don't get every single conservative out to vote, if we do not try to get every fence-sitter to vote GOP, then Obama could still win

No resting, no complacence.

The target should be for Obama to get 0 electoral votes, nothing less.

No simple win but a thorough drubbing to show the left that the country does not want their policies

-——If we are complacent and don’t get every single conservative out to vote——

There is an obvious problem. Some vain and sanctimonious conservatives place their own worth above that of the country and chose to pretend to act.
