First Hamburglar to visit Raleigh and Charlotte.
Oh, Goodie for us in swing state NC!
RALEIGH — First lady Michelle Obama is planning to visit Raleigh and Charlotte to meet with military families, school children and to make remarks in advance of this summer’s Democratic National Convention in the Queen City.
The White House says Obama will be in North Carolina on Friday, arriving in Raleigh to meet active duty military personnel and their families. She’s also scheduled to address a Democratic National Committee reception.
Later that day, she’s slated to arrive in Charlotte to promote the “Let’s Move!” fitness program with children before the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Tournament. She also plans to speak at two Democratic events.
North Carolina is a crucial state in President Barack Obama’s re-election strategy. Last week, Vice President Joe Biden visited Davidson County Community College.
I hope the military families and Tea Party give her the reception she deserves, given that her husband has decided to trash Tricare – Washington Free Beacon:
The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
