Michelle Obama’s Command to NASCAR Drivers
President Obama needs your vote.
That is the message First Lady Michelle Obama will be sending when she serves as the Grand Marshall in NASCAR’s season finale Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Mrs. Obama will be joined by Dr. Jill Biden to lead the pre-race ceremonies and give the command to start engines for the Ford 400, the last race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. It is a part of their Joining Forces Initiative honoring the Military and their families.
Neither of the Obamas bothered to attend any NASCAR race during the last campaign. In fact, no Democrat acknowledged NASCAR fans as several Republican candidates were making the rounds at NASCAR races.
So why the change of heart? It’s because Obama needs your vote. NASCAR fans make up a huge block of voters, and If President Obama can sway the NASCAR vote he just may have a shot at 4 more years.
So how’s the hope and change thing working out now for the President. Now it’s “I hope I can change their minds before the election.”
Will you be more likely to re-elect Barack Obama now that he is a NASCAR supporter?
