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 years 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. Im 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 theyre 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 governors seats are also up for grabs.
Its simply not enough to elect Barack Obama president if we dont 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 Obamas 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.

I wouldn’t call myself a “Donor”, but I’m going to write a big, fat check, just the same......on April 15th.
Big, fat like you-know-what...Moochie.
Can I despise politicians and Hollywood anymore? I’m trying, but think I’ve hit my limit.
The Fat First Mama is really into “fat”.
Plenty of suckers in SF.
Going after those Hollyweird “fat” cats.
passionate and as hungry”
ahahahaha HUNGRY we understand Mooch baby!
The Year Of Action ..continues..with PLEAS for campaign cash
TO be quite frank...Im surprised that DIPPER...didnt include this request for Big Chunks of Cash in his My State of My Union Address
Always with the hand out.
“Think of my ass, then write a check just about that big, ‘kay?”
but Michelle! But Michelle! He told us the other night that he doesn’t need congress anyway!
~~~a big, fat~~~
Nah, the jokes are just too easy.
No doubt some pictures will suffice.
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....
I thought she was against fat. Notwithstanding her own.
BIG FAT CHECK is what got Dinesh ARRESTED!!! Oh no....being a CONSERVATIVE and dissing Obama is what got him ARRESTED and a $500,000.00 BOND!!!!!
The “Just Us” dept. is DANGEROUS....VERY DANGEROUS!!
did she make this same appeal for money at her birthday bash?
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?
It’s coming right at us!
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.
It ain't gonna be any democrat running for congress.
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.
I’m going to write some fat checks but not to dims. Maybe not that fat...but FR is gonna be sent one this weekend!
Do these people do anything other than take vacations and hold their hand’s out asking for money?
Crap, I love that show. His wife is "Amy" on the show.
