First Lady Michelle Obama implored voters to help her husband President Obama win in the November elections because he is not a “superhero.” Um, didn’t Spike Lee call him the “Black Jesus?” Mrs. O said at a fundraiser in Los Angeles hosted by Gwen Stefani: “He’s not a superhero; he’s a human. So he needs your help.”
Are the poll numbers true? Well, he had a modestly priced $51 per ticket fundraiser in Chicago and the event didn’t sell out. The room was reportedly half full. Could Chicagoans be cooling with the president? After all, he has all be ignored the black vote in exchange for a watered-down version of the Dream Act and coming out in favor of gay marriage. While I think he will still eke out a win, I believe he has lost that loving feeling with most voters. This will play well with conservatives, who are now saying his campaign has lost its mojo.
