    I wish I could get a couple of tickets but I have to go to work. I guess that doesn't apply to a lot of her followers.

    Let's see. You have to pay to see someone you're already paying to support. After several $10 million vacations, you'd think she's pay people to come hear her lies about her husband's performance to date and his plan to finish what he started in destroying America.

    Michelle Obama doesn't need to speak to students because their professors are going to give them extra credit for voting for Obama anyway. She ought to meet with the "middle class" who have lost their homes due to foreclosure.

    What is she going say that might be different from what we have already heard from her? Talk is cheap like the empty chair at the RNC.

    If they are advertising the fact that tickets are available tells us that they are worried about rounding up a sufficient sized crowd...oh well...
