Democrats sending digital birthday card to First Lady Michelle Obama

President Barack Obama’s supporters received an email urging them to wish First Lady Michelle Obama a happy birthday. Writing for the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, DSCC Digital Director Matt Kehres wrote that Mrs. Obama is a “passionate advocate for change who is never afraid to speak her mind. She’s an incredible role model -- and I can’t think of anyone who deserves a better birthday.” Featured on the DSCC website is a charming photograph of the smiling President and Mrs. Obama.
 
Hoping for 100,000 “grassroots supporters” to sign the electronic greeting card for Mrs. Obama, Kehres seeks to show how “loved she is by her awesome supporters.”
Elsewhere on the DSCC website, can be seen the changes and interests advocated by Senate Democrats. For example, the website says that the “Senate just acted to end LGBT discrimination in the workplace nationally for the first time. But Republicans in the House are already threatening to block it, and Speaker Boehner just came out strongly against it.” It also asks Democrats to “stand with President Obama to stop a Tea Party takeover!”

Elsewhere on the site, for those inclined, there are oval decals resembling those used in Europe to signify national identity. These proclaim “I’m with Barack” or have an outline of the United States in rainbow colors to indicate support for “Marriage Equality.”
 
Senator Harry Reid of Nevada and Michael Bennet of Colorado are the leaders of the DSCC.

Of Mrs. Obama’s response to the digital missives from fellow Democrats, DSCC digital director Kehres promised, “She’s gonna love this.” Born on January 17, 1964, Mrs. Obama will reach the ripe age of 50 this month.
