Michele Obama rallied Pittsburgh voters today on her husband’s behalf using the theme “Barack gets it.” She says he has been there and experienced the troubles so many Americans are facing daily. Mrs. Obama urged those gathered in Soldiers and Sailors hall in Oakland to get out to the polling place and to bring a friend. She says with 19 days to go before the vote this is no time to let up the pressure. She told the full house stuffed with mostly college students that they need to act like Obama is down 20 points in the polls. She says the old ways of working in Washington are not working and a new approach is needed. She says she is proud of her husband for his campaign efforts and knows he will make a great president.
