FLOTUS on 2012: 'I will do whatever I'm asked to do' [to help Pres. Obama win reelection in 2012]
The Hill ^ | 2-9-11 | Michael O'Brien

Posted on 02/09/2011 2:20:30 PM PST by Justaham

First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday she's willing to do whatever it takes to help President Obama win reelection in 2012.

Michelle Obama, who's promoting the one-year anniversary of her "Let's Move" initiative, said she would relish the opportunity to get out on the campaign trail for the grind required to win another term for the president.

"I will do whatever I'm asked to do," she said on NBC's "Today" show.

The first lady has spoken previously of the active role she would likely play in reelection, perhaps a testament to the strong draw she enjoys with female voters, a key voting bloc.

"When it's time to get out on the road and talk to the American people, it's something I enjoy doing," she said.

That effort will begin in earnest over the next few months, as the president's reelection campaign formally launches in Chicago, the first lady's hometown, and Republicans begin jumping into the race.

The first lady has seemed to do a little bit of campaigning already, urging even voters who are despondent and out of work to vote for her husband in 2012.

"Yes, absolutely," she said when asked if the unemployed should vote for President Obama for reelection. "Because we're seeing some significant improvements in the economy."

“Let’s Move” to the chips, dips, beers, and snacks...just like at the Super Bowl party...

Translation: I'm not giving up on the gravy train.

“First lady Michelle Obama said Wednesday she's willing to do whatever it takes to help President Obama win reelection in 2012.”

She should go to Planned Parenthood. Maybe they can tell her where to pick up a few tricks.

(1) Nagging people on their harmless diet and lifestyle choices is a guaranteed winner.

(2) Whining about your "sacrifice" in going to Copenhagen in the epic failure to get the Olympics for Chicago secured a huge voting block for Odumbo.

Keep up the good work Moochelle.

I think they misspelled FLATUS.

It is the first “lady” were talking about, correct?

I thought I remembered BJ using the new ride to arrive at W's inaugural. I'll be pleased if I am wrong. Rather than have it decontaminated, I thought President Bush should have let him keep it with the stolen furniture and Ws from the keyboards.

Yeah it was introduced @ the GWB inaugural.
So technically BJ was the first POTUS in, LOL.

AAARRRGGHH! Oh well. I'd still have it. Big engine and a worthy replacement for my 62 Coupe de Ville.

It’s probably stinky inside from Baraq’s smoking though.

I’d love to throw a Quarter-Pounder with Cheese to Michelle during her
campaign.

But I won’t because the Secret Service (rightfully) would bust my chops.

Thanks for posting the picture of Michelle and Barack’s sweet ride.
The sad thing is that looks like a realistic representation of what
they’d have if some rational people weren’t watching them.

Oops, I forgot to mention something in my previous post.

I guess that pimped ride could be a vehicular extension of Michelle’s
“Let’s Move” campaign.
LOL!
