First lady Michelle Obama has joined her husband's bandwagon to hit the rich and spread the wealth, questioning how well-off families can feel good if others are struggling.
To about 300 supporters wealthy enough to pay $300-$10,000 to attend the mid-day event, the first lady said, "If a family in this country is struggling, we cannot be satisfied with our own families' good fortune."
She also rapped the rich, as has her husband. "Who do we want to be?" Obama asked. "Will we be a country where success is limited to the few at the top? This country is strongest when we are all better off."
Freshly returned from her Colorado ski trip, itself a much needed respite from her Hawaiian vacation the prior month, the nation's nutritionist-in-chief reminded the rich donors in attendance of the importance of spreading wealth around to the less fortunate ... like the Obamas.
