First Lady tells Florida students "Pretend I'm like your mother" and VOTE!

The First Lady was in Gainesville Monday at the University of Florida talking to students there about the importance of getting out and voting. Do you think her speech made a difference for young, undecided voters at the university?

I'm sure it did. Generally when you can go see a candidate (or first lady) in person, you are more easily persuaded. I love her though!

 Umm I have a great mother and parents who raised me with the importance of voting, I do not have any desire for the First Lady to be my surrogate mother.  Thanks but no thanks

Wow!  That's almost as crazy as when she compared her husband and his administration to Jesus and the Apostles!  I don't think they're as ahead in the race as the media wants to make us all believe.

Anytime someone speaks in person it makes a difference in either direction. It's good that she's telling young people to vote. She's not saying who to vote for but to vote.

Agreed!


Also, it's not as though she wanted to adopt a room full of students. lol.  It way hyperbole!  "I'm saying this like a mother tells their kids to get in the bath tub"

I am happy she is encouraging young people to vote.  More young people should vote.  I would like to see her statement in context though.
