Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (CNN) – First lady Michelle Obama rallied supporters in this must-win state Wednesday, imploring the energetic crowd to help give her husband a "chance to finish what we started."
Touting the passage of health care reform, the improving economy and the withdrawal of troops in Iraq as examples or her husband's achievements in office, Obama told the crowd to " make sure that people know that all of this - and so much more - is at stake this November."

"And in the end, it all boils down to one simple question: Will we continue the change we've begun and the progress we've made, or will we allow everything we've fought for to just slip away?" she said.
Predicting a close race, Obama told the crowd her husband "can't do this alone."
But, she argued, the president has demonstrated that he will fight for his beliefs.
"When we need a leader to make the hard decisions to keep this country moving forward, you know you can count on my husband, your president, because that is what he has been doing every single day in the Oval Office as President of the United States. "
The first lady – fresh off a publicity tour to promote her new book on gardening – will continue campaigning for her husband Thursday with a rally in Virginia and a private fundraiser in Washington, DC.

What a no class act she is. Had to give up her law license or face insurance fraud.

Whoa? Yeah, after borrowing $5 TRILLION, Obama pushed the country close to financial ruin, but he and his wife now believe it will take the passage of ObamaCare during a second term to finish the job.
So nice to hear a women spew half truths, as she says "you know you can count on my husband, your president, because that is what he has been doing EVERY SINGLE DAY in the Oval Office as President of the United States. " how many days is that? he's been playing more golf and taking expensive vacations and flying all over the place trying to drum up business it's a wonder he gets anything done. But then again everything he's done has been a mess. I hate to see what he will do with four more years.
So, Mrs. Obama wants to finish what we started?
You mean complete the destruction of America as we know it?
What they've started is the destruction of America. DO NOT LET THEM FINISH!
"And in the end, it all boils down to one simple question: Will we continue the change we've begun and the progress we've made, or will we allow everything we've fought for to just slip away?" Michelle Obama said....
progress? Change ? "Everything we've fought for"? If they think this is good.. were all in trouble
Vote Obama out he's the worst President we've ever had.
what a disaster, and you want more?
Gardening? LOL,what a hoot. "Will we continue the change we've begun and the progress we've made, or will we allow everything we've fought for to just slip away?" she said." We will definitely allow everything you marxist crooks slip away, the sooner the better. You're going back to Chicago or Kenya. Start packing and don't take nothing that doesn't belong to you.
I'm going to vote for Romney and finish off what [Obama] started. We can't take another four years of this nonsense.
So many free vacations. So little time.
The destruction of America!
Yeah, all Michelle's gardening knowledge in a book. Must be a pretty small book. Have her hands touched dirt since the photo op?
They have been off to a great start on destroying America. "Hard decisions?" Good grief! Yeah, it's real hard choosing where to vacation next, which golf course to play on next, what "thugs" to invite to the next WH party, which donors to give taxpayer money to for a kickback, deciding to spend two years on an unpopular socialist healthcare bill instead of investing time into getting the economy (which has no sign of recovery) and running up trillions in debt for democrat spending sprees.
Yeah, let's have more of that...America doesn't have enough deadbeats already.
Michelle.... finishing what you started is what we're most afraid of !!
He makes hard decisions every single day........not including 90 golf outings, date night every week, most vacations of any president and with this record I know damn well he does not work weekends or overtime...
The American people cannot afford the Obama's that opportunity to have them finish anything ...when you think about it, Saul Alinsky sucks...and so do his acolytes, the Obama's...Barack doesn't know protocol or even how to behave...he's crass & rude and our affirmative action president has been a bust..it really has been a shame that the first black president was such al lying fraudulent Chicago thug who didn't appreciate how quickly he made it up the ladder with not a single qualification...I'm ashamed America allowed themselves this poseur and his tacky wife the keys to the People's House...the media has been wrong about all of it..Bill Clinton said it best...the country needs both of these autocrats gone...
Like the fruit on a tree, liberals will ignore anything that they do not directly see. They ignore the birds, the bees, the woodsman hacking at the tree!
She wants to finish what they started -– destroying this country that she and her Marxist husband hate.
I think I prefer ending what Obama started.
God willing, they wont get the chance to " finish what they started".
"And in the end, it all boils down to one simple question: Will we continue the change we've begun and the progress we've made in destroying America, or will we allow everything we've fought for to just slip away, and allow America to become a stong nation, once again?" she said.
Sorry lady...we do not want your Marxist husband to have one more day to destroy this nation. This is SOOOO incredibly pathetic! The biggest CON job ever and the Media is responsible for so much of the damage this guy has done to this nation.
the economy is not improving... jokers...... why do you need a massive QE if the economy is so good?
hahahaha, don't make me laugh so hard, it hurts.....Obama, a leader????? here I go again, hahahahaha stop, stop your killing me.......Dear God we don't need 4 more years of these dimwits!
So you put us into the toilet after the first 4 years...
Are you saying you want to flush and keep flushing during the next 4 years??!!!
One term was more then you deserved, start packing your stuff now...
