“Imagine what Barack can do in four more years!” Mrs. Obama Helping to Elect Romney?

Is Michelle Obama thinking about more vacations she can take if her husband gets four more years? (photographer unknown)

Well… How’s this for motivation to GET OUT THE VOTE for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan?

Michelle Obama asked twitter users yesterday: “Imagine what Barack can do in four more years!”

I’ve been with Mitt Romney Central since its inception and I’ve never written an article about Michelle Obama. I didn’t write about the time Michelle said “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country.” I didn’t utter a peep about the time when Michelle, confiding to then-First Lady of France, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, on her own job as First Lady, supposedly said “It’s hell. I can’t stand it!” (Both later denied it.) Nothing from me regarding our First Lady’s aversion to placing her hand over heart when our national anthem is played. I’ve never pointed out the way the press hits Ann Romney for her clothing choices, but gives Michelle a pretty pass and plenty of praise. No keyboard clacking from me about the time Mrs. Obama went to a food bank wearing $540 sneakers. I didn’t mention the time Mrs. Obama inferred that a vote for Mitt Romney would cause women to die from cancer. I haven’t written about the way Michelle’s ‘Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act’ forces some school kids to go hungry. And, I didn’t post an article about Mrs. O’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in September – the fairytale she presented of her and Barack’s struggles.

Today, the First Lady’s tweet changed my mind.

Imagine what Barack can do in four more years?

Uh, Michelle, you’re killin’ me.

Maybe you’re thinking about what YOU can do with four more years.

Besides all the pricey trips to Martha’s Vineyard, Aspen, and Hawaii, remember in the summer of 2010 when the Obamas encouraged Americans to visit the oil-stricken Gulf Coast and then high-tailed it, lickety-split, for a family vacation in Maine? Remember how shortly after returning from Maine, Michelle Obama then jetted off for a private, closed-to-the-press, luxurious vacation in Spain? (To jog your memory, that was the time she took her youngest daughter and an entourage of long-time family friends and lounged at the ritzy Costa del Sol hotel.) Remember when she and her girls took off for a family vacation and within an hour, her husband followed. She wouldn’t wait for him so we got to pay for two jets!

Here’s the Obama three-and-a-half-years vacation list:

– President’s Day 2012, Michelle and the first daughters in Aspen, Colorado to ski.
– Christmas 2011, the first family in Hawaii for an extended vacation.
– Summer 2011, in Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., for the annual beach break.
– June 2011, the first lady, her mother and daughters traveled to South Africa and Botswana.
– President’s Day 2011, the first lady and first daughters travel to Vail to ski.
– Christmas 2010, in Hawaii.
– August 2010, the first family traveled to Panama City Beach, Fla., for sun and fun at the beach.
– August 2010, Obama spent the weekend alone in Chicago for his 49th birthday bash.
– August 2010, the first lady and daughter Sasha traveled to Spain for a mother-daughter vacation.
– August 2010, summer vacation again at Martha’s Vineyard.
– July 2010, the first family went to Mount Desert Island, Maine.
– May 2010, the first family had a four-day trip to Chicago.
– March 2010, first lady and daughter spend Spring Break in New York City.
– Christmas 2009, Hawaii again for the annual break.
– August 2009, at Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Canyon for a short vacation.
– August 2009, their first summer vacation as first family at Martha’s Vineyard, Mass.

Yeah, Michelle may have more chi-chi-foo-foo-taxpayer-footing-the-bill vacations on her bucket list.

It was a travesty the way the mainstream media made a big stink about the Romneys this past 4th of July for sharing their own paid-for jet ski with family and friends – at their home on Lake Winnipesaukee. Meanwhile, they’ve overlooked Michelle Obama’s love for lap-of-luxury vacations (which comes out of our penny-jingling pockets).

  • Speaking of expensive jaunts, here’s another point… There’s a stark contrast in how the Obama campaign pays its bills and how responsible and frugal Mitt Romney is – even down to the hotel accommodations he chooses. DO read more here.

  • Imagine what Barack can do in four more years? He’ll finish destroying the USA.

    Here’s what a few other Americans think:

  • What are Michelle Obama and her husband so proud of?

    Their hubris over such a failed record makes one’s eyes bug out and shoot blood! I will not use my last-full-day-of-Romney-campaign energy to go into the havoc and destruction Mr. O has brought upon us. Here’s my summary:

    No, Michelle. We don’t want to imagine what your husband can do with four more years! (By cartoonist Gary Varvel – Nov 4, 2012)

    NEVADA: Taking Action to Get Out The Vote — Duty Calls

    By Rachel Anderson

    I had the opportunity to depart to Las Vegas, Nevada for three days last weekend to be a part of something monumental for America. As the 2012 Presidential election is at its peak, with only 11 days to go and a close race behind us, nothing but determination has motivated hundreds of volunteers from all over Utah and California, including myself, to get Mitt Romney elected in the White House.

    Rachel Anderson

    With Nevada being one of the twelve swing states for November’s election, I couldn’t help but sign my name up to make sure Romney got the good ole Sin City’s votes.

    As I stood in line with 100 other students and retired adults getting ready to board the bus, the Romney Campaign volunteers handed each one of us “Romney/Ryan 2012: Believe in America” stickers. At that moment, all I could think to myself with a smirk on my face was “Move it or lose it Obama, my man Mitt’s taking over the White House!”

    With previous experience volunteering for Prop 8 my senior year of high school in 2008, I kind of had an idea of what this experience was going to be like; knocking on doors, making phone calls, being an awesome representative for what is right…you know, the usual civic duties. Although I’m not the happiest or nicest person when it comes to walking around for hours in dry desert heat, I sucked it up and told myself this was for America.

    Friday night we arrived at the Marriot hotel in Las Vegas around midnight. Our trip leader started passing around envelopes with our names on them that included a deployment schedule, 30 bucks cash for food and hotel room key. I thought to myself… “Mitt really knows how to take care of his people and keep his supporters happy, even in Vegas!”

    8:00 Saturday morning, we found ourselves waiting for the bus to take us to Brady Industries where everyone would meet for instruction. After listening to a welcome speech from Jim Davies, Ann Romney’s brother, they immediately put us in vans and sent us to a Republican rally put on by the Mitt Romney Campaign. After a couple hours of food, comedians, speakers and radical rallying, we were then sent out to different parts of the town with bags full of, Romney/Ryan fliers, early voting location fliers, Dean Heller fliers, pens, and precinct bubble-in forms with registered voters names. We then started our quest to receive either support or straight rejection for the Republican Party.

    The next two days involved constant walking and making phone calls; talking to many proud supporters of Romney, encouraging them to vote early in hopes to receive support for the Republican ballot, in which most already had. Aside from the excitement we received from Romney supporters, we also ran across many pro-Obama supporters. Some closed the door on us, some yelled at us and some even called the cops on us. It made me wonder why all these people were so angry towards everything that comes near them.

    As the hours cruised on by and the day got hotter by the minute, I ran into a lady, in her 70’s who really stood out to me. As we were walking through her neighborhood, she asked what we were doing. I told her we were part of the Republican Party reminding voters to vote in hopes to receive support for Romney and Ryan. With a bitter sound to her voice, waiting for her to yell or kick me off her property, she said this:

    I’m a Democrat. Born and raised a Democrat. But I’m voting for Romney. We need to save this country.”

    Just from those simple words, it was a humbling experience for me. Knowing and seeing that people with different views and beliefs than the rest of us can see the danger and despair our country is in. It doesn’t matter who you are – your race, religion or what you believe – we are Americans; this is America and we need to work together to fight for our country. We don’t want any of this Obama ‘change’ talk that is dividing our country while we watch it crumble from the laziness of our current president. In fact, why would we ever want a president that can’t even man up and take responsibility for his own actions?

    Let’s vote for a man that can rebuild a foundation for our country and bring hard work, education and belief in God back in this country; a man that we can not only trust, but that can be a strong leader and representative of our nation. Romney is the man to help mend our nation and bring us back together as a country and to save the citizens of America. He is a true American and stands up for what is best in this nation. This short three-day weekend in Vegas helped me to realize the importance of the 2012 election and the impact it will have on all of American society. With a few parting words – make your vote count and let’s kick Obama out of the White House!
