First lady: 2014 election key
Politico ^ | 27 Jul 2014 | EDWARD-ISAAC DOVERE

Posted on 07/27/2014 4:49:11 PM PDT by mandaladon

In a new video recorded for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, first lady Michelle Obama says Democrats need to take this year’s midterms more seriously than they did either of her husband’s presidential elections.

The video, her first effort on behalf of Democrats beyond a few scattered fundraisers so far, launches the DCCC’s new 1millionvotesfor2014.com website, timed to coincide with the 100-day countdown until the election.

“When it comes to the midterm elections this November, we need you to be as passionate and as hungry as you were in 2008 and 2012 – in fact, you need to be even more passionate and more hungry to get Democrats elected to Congress because these elections will be even hard and even closer than those presidential elections,” she says in the video, sent to donors Sunday morning in a fundraising email with her name on it that repeated the “commit to vote” theme repeated throughout.

“It’s simple: You deserve a Congress that will work for you and your family,” she says, urging people to go to the website and make voter commitments, as well as connect with local campaigning opportunities.

The video comes between a Democratic National Committee fundraiser she did in Chicago last Thursday and another private roundtable she’s doing in Washington on Monday.

“Make no mistake about it: Barack’s last campaign was not in 2012, Barack’s last campaign is this year, 2014,” she said last week in Chicago. “Because the election in 2012 wasn’t the change that we sought, it was only the chance to make that change.”.......................More promises...more lies.

It sounds to me like Moochelle is saying that the commie ‘RATS need to win in November to keep the communist blitzkrieg and destruction of America on track. I guess that’s important to DemocRATS.

“Because the election in 2012 wasn’t the change that we sought, it was only the chance to make that change.”

And the changes that change the change are the chance that change changes.

FUMO&BO I hardly ever use that word, but it’s appropriate in this instance.

“Make no mistake about it: Barack’s last campaign was not in 2012, Barack’s last campaign is this year, 2014,”

I guess she & Barack don't plan to come out in 2 years to enthusiastically support his wonderful former SoS, Hitlary…

To paraphase a quote of Bibi Netanyahu:

If Republicans can take the House and Senate in 2104 and the Presidency in 2016 there will be no more destruction of America. If the Democrats take the House and Senate and Hillary is elected President, there will be no more America.

Always funny to see them so desperate.

Hope November truly hurts, because the health care fine on the 2014 tax return is going to hurt the Democrats even more.

I remember when First Ladies were just that. Classy, non-descript women who engaged in meaningful causes that helped all Americans.

DemoRats need to remember how King Obama treated them as nothing when he screwed them over with Obamacare and $2,500 per head penalty and then put illegal immigrants in line in front of their needs, then armed Muslims who are going to come over here though our porous borders and demand a Caliphate once rhey reach a large enough population who will then force you to pay a special tax, become slaves, or cut off your head if you don’t convert to Islam. So gays and athiests listen up. You are hated by Muslims. They will force you into their religion and cut off all the LGBT’ers heads. You say he won’t do this? Think about how much he has already shoved down your throat using his magic pen and deception.

So DemoRats and leftists, do you still love your Obama?

I don’t see the Chicago Mob lining up behind the Clinton Crime Family in 2016. I think they’ll be all-in for Lizzie Warren.

Supposedly MooseChelle will run for senate from Illinois in 2016. She won’t even have to carpetbag like Hillary.

I think their biggest supporters, the blacks, are really pissed too because they are letting in all the illegals. They need to get out and vote Republican.
