Michelle Obama Wants to Remind Voters about President’s Roots
First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night. She will deliver her speech at 10 p.m. ET according to the podium schedule released by the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee. When she takes the stage, her husband the president will be back in the nation’s capital. She will tell the voters what her husband has planned for the next four years.
The Obama campaign will try to use her favorability ratings, which is better than President Obama, to attract swing voters. That means she will not say anything bad against Mitt Romney so as not to damage her ratings.
White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said that the first lady’s speech will remind voters why President Obama deserves a second term. She will use the opportunity to remind voters who Barack is, what motivates him, what drives him, and what he intends to do if ever he win in the upcoming general election.
Obama campaign hopes that Michelle Obama’s speech will touch the hearts of every American, no matter what party they belong or where they come from. Obama aides describe the speech to be a personal one that will resonate to a huge audience.
Michelle Obama told a radio show Tuesday that she wants to remind Americans about who her husband was before he became the president of the United States. She said in an interview on The Joe Madison Show that the president has grown so much but his core character and value has not changed. She added that her speech will take folks back to the man before he was the president.
Michelle Obama has been active on the campaign trail this year even though she only attended a third of the fundraisers that President Obama went to. Tuesday is also the first day of school for Malia, the first couple’s older daughter.
