Recipients of the numerous e-mails from First Lady Michelle Obama, hectoring them to donate $5 or whatever they can to President Barack Obamas reelection campaign might be surprised to learn she herself has not donated one penny to her husbands effort.
Ann Romney has donated $75,000 to her husband Mitt Romneys combined campaign Romney Victory fund. Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show no contributions from Michelle Obama in the 2012 election cycle. While the Obamas are not as wealthy as the Romneys, both couples are multi-millionaires.
In 2008, Michelle Obama donated a paltry $399 to Obama for America. She did make a generous $2300 donation to Hillary Clinton in a peacemaking gesture to help pay off the campaign debt of her husbands rival for the Democratic partys presidential nomination. Those are the only political donations made by Michelle Obama according to the FEC.
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama have each contributed to their respective campaigns. Like his wife, Romney gave $75,000 to the Romney Victory fund. Obama gave $2500 each to his own primary and general election campaigns.
The Obama campaign has sent out urgent e-mails the past few days seeking more money from supporters claiming the Romney campaign will win the election by outspending Obama in the closing weeks of the campaign. An e-mail from Michelle Obama in the hours before the final debate asked supporters to dig deep:

Moochelle is a taker, not a giver.
hahahahahaha that is hilarious
These two grifters have always lived on Other People’s Money. They’ve made millions, so why change a sure-fire thing?
This is like AlGore, money transfer from one pocket to another. No need for any official ledger.
Money donated to Obama is like Michelle’s own spending account.
Moochelle is just a prop. To make the arab president look normal.
She ain’t stupid. Besides, she’s got more $6,000 dresses to buy.
“Moochelle is just a prop. To make the arab president look normal.”
By “normal” you mean heterosexual, right?
The Mooch (the affirmative-actiobn, equal-opportunity “Worst Lady”) is a self-absorbed freak. Mainly, any donations she makes are probably to Louis Far-out-akan’s moozlum group or to “reverend” wright’s (I’m living large in white suburbia) lawn care fund.
Of course she hasn’t, she’s been too busy writing school menus!
mooseshelle is penny pinching.
Michelle is looking forward to retiring to Hawaii.
Maybe we can bribe the Airforce One pilot to dump them in Havana
I wouldn’t raise this argument with anyone because it’s so transparent and easily refuted - she’s campaigning for him: why would someone expect her to donate?
Even I wouldn’t expect that.
I would expect he to donate because she is asking others with a lot less to donate. If a $5 donation is so critical, then why nada from her? No, it doesn’t mean she isn’t behind him but it does tell us who she is.
I’ve noticed how much thinner BHO is than he used to be. He looks tired and ill. I’m wondering if it’s the beginning stages of HIV. We’ll probably never be told the truth of it, but I won’t be surprised if he succumbs to “pneumonia” when he does pass away.
