First lady Michelle Obama spends a great deal of time pushing healthy eating and her Let’s Move campaign on American children by making appearances on commercials and television shows aimed at younger audiences. Now she has a new message for youngsters: Get out and tell your grandparents to vote for my husband.
According to Breitbart.com, the first lady was speaking at a $500 per ticket fundraising event at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park when she said:
I mean, I can’t tell you in the last election how many grandparents I ran into who said, I wasn’t going to vote for Barack Obama until my grandson talked to me, until my great-grandson talked to me, and talked about the future he wanted for this country.
You can get out there with your parents. You guys can knock on doors. I had one young lady who brought me a petition — she’s already working. You can convince wrong people. Sometimes we don’t listen to ourselves, but we will listen to our children.
