Hallelujah! Chicago Jesus has risen!
I told myself no more Mooch posts today but there was no way I could pass on this one.
First lady Michelle Obama hit the campaign trail in Nashville on Tuesday and told a packed crowd in a downtown office building that the campaign has an “amazing story to tell.”
“This President has brought us out of the dark and into the light,” she said. “But we need each and every one of you as fired up as you’ve been.”
The first lady made roughly the same stump speech of recent weeks, chronicling the acomplishments of her husband’s first term, from the auto industry rescue to health care reform, ending the war in Iraq and the killing of Osama bin Laden. In a roughly 26-minute speech to a crowd of about 450, she also appealed to women voters, highlighting her husband’s signing of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.
“That’s the first thing your president did,” she said. “He did this because he knows what it means when women aren’t treated fairly in the workplace.”
