Michelle takes a break from being our national nutritional scold to doing what she does best - whoring herself out for cash:
To about 300 supporters wealthy enough to pay $300-$10,000 to attend the mid-day event, the first lady said, "If a family in this country is struggling, we cannot be satisfied with our own families' good fortune."
She also rapped the rich, as has her husband. "Who do we want to be?" Obama asked. "Will we be a country where success is limited to the few at the top? This country is strongest when we are all better off."
And who will be the best off if Barack Obama gets re-elected? George Savage at Ricochet:
Freshly returned from her Colorado ski trip, itself a much needed respite from her Hawaiian vacation the prior month, the nation's nutritionist-in-chief reminded the rich donors in attendance of the importance of spreading wealth around to the less fortunate ... like the Obamas.
Michelle in particular. She does have a taste for 5-star resorts, $540 sneakers, $1,000 boots, and shiny baubles running into six figures...and lord knows that Barack - like any smart pimp - doesn't want to lose his bottom bitch...
