Her mission of course was to raise money for her husband and Democrats. Is there anything more important? Not to these folks, and with the June quarter ending yesterday, a last minute dash for cash was a must.
So there was Michelle under a backyard tent with a 125 friends. What did she want to say? She wanted to tell her friends how hard it is to be in the White House. Yeah, its frustrating and demanding. Really tough job . . . but at least her husband has a job.
Now you would think that in front of this small and very friendly crowd, Madame Obama could have given her personal remarks extemporaneously. It’s more sincere that way, but this First Lady, like her husband, is prone to jump the tracks when she really speaks from the heart. We all remember the first time she was really proud of this country.
Here, she talks about the toll of
too much golf the presidency on her sainted husband:
â€œI see the worry creasing his face. I hear the passion and determination in his voice. â€˜You wonâ€™t believe what these folks are going through;â€™ he told me that last night. â€˜Michelle, it is not right. Weâ€™ve got to fix this. We have to do more,â€™â€ she said during a visit to Boston for a fund-raiser on behalf of the Democratic National Committee.
â€œBarack always reminds me that we are playing a long game,â€ she added, replicating her husbandâ€™s call for patience amid the countryâ€™s slow emergence from a recession. â€œHe reminds me, as I said to you, too, that change is slow. He reminds me that change doesnâ€™t happen all at once, but that if we keep showing up, if we keep fighting the good fight, doing what we know is right, then eventually we will get there, because the truth is we always have in this country. We always have.â€

Well, Michelle, guess what? You’re husband hasn’t fixed a darn thing. The country is pretty much a train wreck. In fact, a majority of Americans would be more than pleased if the president would stop trying to fix things.
It would also be nice if Team Obama is going to continue peeing on the legs of Americans and claiming it’s raining . . . could you look us in the eye when you lie? Yeah, I know, it’s hard and stuff.
