Taking a brief respite from her self-assigned job as America’s nutritional authority, Michelle Obama has been making stops across the U.S, campaigning for leftist candidates and encouraging Democrats to vote next month. According to the Washington Examiner, the first lady was in Wisconsin recently to do both.
During a rally in support of Mary Burke’s gubernatorial campaign, Obama stressed the importance of young people making it to the polls for the upcoming midterm elections.
“If we’re more organized, if we’re more passionate, Mary wins,” she said. “If we keep steppin’ up and bringing others, then I know we can keep making that change that we believe in.”
Obama then used an unusual ploy to make voting seem appealing to young adults.
“Bring that cute guy or girl you have a crush on,” she suggested. “That’s a good reason to connect. Just a tip – trust me, they’ll be impressed.”
Michelle Obama tells college students that election day voting is a good excuse for a first date. What!?!? Idiot Dems stop at nothing.

The recent stop in Wisconsin was Obama’s second trip to the state in as many weeks. Reports indicate Barack Obama is expected to make an appearance in support of Burke at some point prior to the November election.
