First Lady in Ohio Says Campaign About Choices

WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) -- Michelle Obama says the presidential campaign is about choices involving the economy, health care and college education.
Obama told a crowd of around 2,000 at a suburban Columbus, Ohio, high school gymnasium on Tuesday that the country must decide whether to go forward with the initiatives her husband has undertaken or let the progress slip away.
She said the country is better off because of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the return of troops from Iraq and the auto bailout.
The first lady planned a second rally in battleground Ohio at the convention center in Dayton later Tuesday.
Her visit follows campaign stops made last week by the president and Vice President Joe Biden.
Republican challenger Mitt Romney also made three stops in Ohio on Wednesday.

    I would feel more confident concerning the First Lady's statements concerning the economy had her tenure begun with her promoting the wearing of clothes made in the USA. As many individuals may recall, especially those in the textile industry, First Lady Obama chose to present herself as one of "us" by buying imported (the only ones there) clothes off the rack at a national chain department store. Perhaps our next First Lady, whomever and whenever, or for that matter, First Gentleman, will choose to be a leader by example in all ways.
