The White House has announced that First Lady Michelle Obama will be fundraising and campaigning for Democratic candidates in at least nine states during the month of October. But will it matter to voters which Obama is at the podium? While Mrs. Obama's approval rating is slightly higher than her husband's, she's at just 50% and trending downward due to her own actions and her association with an increasingly unpopular president.

With Democratic candidates refusing campaign visits from President Barack Obama and often refusing to even be seen with him at ceremonial airport greetings, it's obvious they believe that highlighting any connection with the unpopular president will hurt their chances in November. Second stringer Vice President Joe Biden who has spent the last 18 months acting as a gaffe-prone cheerleader for the Obama agenda can't help either and former President Bill Clinton's loyalties may be with someone other than Mr. Obama in 2012. So why not do what many presidents have done and send the First Lady out to charm the voters? Because Michelle Obama seems to have lost much of her charm.

Marie Antoinette may not be the best historical reference for the current Obama Family vs. the American people disconnect. First, there's no proof that the 18th century French queen ever actually uttered the phrase "Let them eat cake" when told the peasants had no bread. And second, the majority of the American people are not demanding that the Obama government give them bread or cake or anything else except the freedom to do our own baking.
