President Obama's performance to a half-empty hall in Miami is proving my point (made early and often) that he is absolutely beatable next year.

 Even Michelle must think so too, since she is out on the trail defending her husband's work ethic.

Huh? Does she forget that Al Gore invented the Internet so we can fact-check stupid statements like that?

"...First lady Michelle Obama on Monday told a fundraiser in Southern California of the toll the presidency has taken on her husband Barack Obama.

"I see the sadness and worry that's creasing his face," she said to a crowd of about 500 at the Pasadena luncheon organized by the Southern California Women For Obama. She described his worth ethic as “tireless,” according to pool reports.

"He reads every word, every memo, so he is better prepared than the people briefing him," she said. "This man doesn't take a day off."

She said the next two years of campaigning would be difficult for the Obamas and their supporters. "It is not going to be easy, and it is going to be long," she said. "Now more than ever we need your help to finish what we started."
