Michelle Obama Reduced To Begging For Spare Change...

...and yes, it is due to her husband's unpopular policies. Why else would she be pleading for pocket change?

First lady Michelle Obama is asking her husband's supporters to pitch in with cash to help Democrats recreate the get-out-the-vote machine that helped deliver Barack Obama the White House two years ago.

In an e-mail sent Monday from the president's political arm, Mrs. Obama asked for donations as small as $3. She wrote that each dollar donated would be matched by another supporter as Democrats hope to fend off emboldened Republicans who could take the majority of the House and possibly the Senate.

"The plan for this election is based on the lessons we learned two years ago," Mrs. Obama said. "Our organizers and volunteers are knocking on doors every weekend, making calls every night. Your support will help to fund this work."

Well, actually, they're not. That's why the president is reduced to begging college kids to work for free, and you're looking for rolls of quarters to help keep your few remaining allies in power. But really, Michelle - isn't this poetic justice? Your husband's presidency has reduced you to the same role as the rest of us - scrimping and saving crumpled-up dollar bills in order to survive another day. Hope you're enjoying the fruits of your ideological garden...

The AP article goes on to tell a bald-faced lie:

Mrs. Obama, who enjoys high popularity and is an in-demand guest on the campaign trail, also plans a call with activists Wednesday, hoping to re-ignite the enthusiasm that elevated a freshman senator to the presidency.

"Enjoys high popularity"? She's fallen from 64% to 50% approval from April '09 to August '10, which leads me to believe it will just take her a few weeks longer to hit rock-bottom in the approval ratings basement, which hopefully has a nice king-sized bed she can share with her husband. Unless 50% is the new "high popularity"....?

Like any sullen beggar who seethes about the wrongs done unto him, Michelle Obama is a loose cannon waiting to explode with rage and frustration at the nation which she finally became proud of when they elected her husband president. Can we get an over/under on when this nuclear weapon will detonate?

I say as soon as she realizes her beggar's tin has naught but a few pennies and a useless subway token...

You are so right about Michelle. Thank God it's not HER in the Oval Office. Having such a marxist elitist usurper in the role of President is is bad enough. But this cringeworthy First "Lady" -- can't wait to see the door hit her butt on the way out.
