Michelle Obama urges donors to write 'a big, fat check' for 2014

First lady Michelle Obama told Democratic donors in Los Angeles on Wednesday to “write a big, fat check” to help the party win in this year’s elections.

“There is something all of you can do right now, today, to make a difference. ... You can write a check, do you hear me?” Obama told them, according to the White House pool report. “I’m serious, write a big fat check. Write the biggest check you can possibly write.”

She told the group of donors that they should be as “passionate” and as “hungry” as they were in 2008 and 2012.

The 2014 midterm elections are “at stake,” Obama said. Democrats are 17 seats away from taking control of the House, she said, but warned that they’re only six seats away from losing the Senate.

“What I want all of you to think about for just a minute is what could happen if we lose those six seats,” clarifying that such an outcome could mean the repeal of ObamaCare, bans against same-sex marriage, obstacles for women to receive contraception, and cutting off unemployment benefits.

In addition, the first lady said 37 governor’s seats are also up for grabs.

“It’s simply not enough to elect Barack Obama president if we don’t also elect leaders in Congress and in our state houses who will work with him to keep making the change we all believe in.”

Obama thanked the donors for their past contributions toward President Obama’s and other Democrats’ campaigns.

“Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal hosted the fundraiser at his home with his wife, also an actress, in the affluent L.A. neighborhood Hancock Park. It had originally been scheduled for Oct. 11, but had been postponed because of the government shutdown.

Actors Barbara Streisand and James Brolin were among those who attended as well as L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Donors had to pay at least $1,000 to attend the reception, and could pay as much as $32,400 for a more intimate meeting the first lady. The money will benefit the Democratic National Committee.

It is wonderful when she can take one of ‘our’ airplanes so she can speak at a 1000 per person reception THEN for only 32400(what a strange #...must be some kind of limit?) grand you can have a closer experience.

And one of the things she is worried about is ‘us’ paying for abortions and birth control and aiding people to remain unemployed....

WONDERFUL...

If I write a check as big and fat as her a$$ it’s going to bounce. Nobody has that much money, can you say insufficient funds?

Just goes to show you that the whole so-called “income inequality” meme is pure horse feces, designed to rile up the LIVs and keep the leftists in power. Dems are the real rich elitist snobs, who want to prevent working and middle class people from being financially well-off too. It’s just too sad that so many people, and the Stupid Party, don’t see the utter hypocrisy in all of this and call the Dems out on this.

She is asking for donors to fork over the big bucks, however who do you think will benefit from all those donations?

It ain't gonna be any democrat running for congress.

That's exactly what they are. Everybody talks about o'dummy and wookie being well funded agents of a foreign power, manchurian candidates, etc.

They're nothing but two very low class ghetto con artists who absolutely lucked into the white house and are set for life. They struck gold in their toilet. And there's not a bloody thing we can do about it.

And what's the republican's response to these pigs? John McLame and Romney.

Crap, I love that show. His wife is "Amy" on the show.
