Michelle Obama seems to have tried out a new campaign slogan at today’s fundraiser in Las Vegas.
“I’m not going to kid you,” the first lady said at the fundraiser, according to the pool report. “This journey is going to be long. And it’s going to be hard. And there are going to be plenty of twists and turns along the way. That’s how change always happens in this country. The reality is real change is slow and it never happens all at once.”
Seems like a winning slogan to me! “Change is slow.”
“Michelle Obama addressed about 130 people at a private fundraising breakfast at a café inside The Springs Preserve, a 180-acre protected nature area a few miles from the Las Vegas Strip,” according to the pool report. “The guests paid at least $2,500 each, raising more than $300,000 for the Obama Victory Fund, a committee raising funds for his re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee.”
One wonders how receptive these high dollar attendees were to the new tone.
UPDATE: According to the official White House transcript, Michelle Obama also got the name of venue wrong. “And I also want to thank The Springs Reserve [sic] and the Culinary Academy for hosting us here today,” the first lady said. “This is a beautiful site. As often as I have been here, I didn’t know this was here.” She spoke at the Springs Preserve.
