Michelle Obama: ‘I will do whatever I’m asked to do’ to help get Obama reelected

Michelle Obama said she’ll do anything asked of her to get President Barack Obama reelected in 2012, a comment some would consider uncharacteristic of the strong-willed first lady.

“I will do whatever I’m asked to do,” the first lady said on the “Today Show,” reports The Hill.

Charlotte Hays, senior fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum, told The Daily Caller it was a wise thing for Michelle Obama to say.

“I find myself unaccustomed to speaking up for Michelle Obama, but this was the right thing for her to say,” Hays told TheDC. “It might not seem like something she’d say, but it’s absolutely the right thing to say. It’s what any first lady would say, unless you think she’s obligated to break any rubric.”

Hays added that former First Lady Barbara Bush probably would have said something similar and done anything possible to try and get former President George H.W. Bush reelected.

“I bet Dolley Madison would have gotten [former President James Madison] reelected, too,” Hays told TheDC.

    I have a wonderful idea for Michelle but I’m afraid to help her and Odumbo too much…..alright I just have to give her my idea. Try and find a professional baseball pitcher ( none of them are liberals though so that’ll be really tough) that will teach him how to throw so that he appears to at least have grown up here.

    Baseball in Kenya isn’t very popular so it’s certainly understandable that he throws like a 4 year old girl but it’s going to affect his credibility!

    He’s got to learn to at least come close to looking like he’s done this before and please after he learns to throw, teach him some names from the WhiteSox roster of the past so when someone asks him his favorite WS player he doesn’t say Jack Lallane….really what a phony.

    Unfortunately, to be able to throw a baseball you have to have a little athletic ability so he’s SOL there…….never mind Michelle….stick to gardening!

      Wow. Throwing a baseball is a prerequisite for being POTUS? Obama will end up as a pretty good 2 term president, unlike his predecessor, who was a miserable incompetent failure.
