Man Up! Desperate Obama Sends His Wife Out to Campaign

Start praying

I guess now an official role of the First Lady is to fly around the country on the taxpayer dime to campaign for endangered Democrats. Of course they're endangered thanks to her husband. Ought to be an easy sell to a skeptical public: Take a woman most recently known for a lavish trip to Spain and get her out on the hustings to tell the great unwashed why we should continue down the disastrous path set forth by her husband and the band of losers she'll be appearing with.
The White House is rolling out first lady Michelle Obama on the campaign trail as Democrats try desperately to maintain control of the House and Senate.

Obama will headline nine fundraisers in six states in the coming weeks — including for some of the most vulnerable incumbents — with more likely to be added, the White House announced Tuesday.

"From the beginning, she's wanted to hit the campaign trail," Obama chief of staff Susan Sher said. "It was just a matter of figuring out what would work with her schedule and what would be most useful."

From Oct. 13 to Oct. 27, the first lady will attend fundraisers for Sens. Russ Feingold (Wis.), Barbara Boxer (Calif.), Patty Murray (Wash.) and Michael Benett (Colo.). She will also attend a fundraiser for Illinois Democratic Senate candidate Alexi Giannoulias and raise money for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in Los Angeles and New York City.

Rounding out her tentative schedule, Obama will do an event with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Illinois congressional candidates Debbie Halvorson, Bill Foster and Dan Seals for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

Oh, and just so they know, this now makes her fair game for political attack and those won't be long in coming. The woman steps in it nearly every time she opens her mouth, so there should be plenty of fodder.

Surely our friends in the Obamamedia will be providing us with a detailed accounting of the costs of all her travel.
