While Mitt Romney and his minions are out preaching about keeping America American, our FLOTUS spoke about the foundation our country is truly built upon–hard work, sacrifice, perseverance and love.
“Barack and I were both raised by families who didn’t have much in the way of money or material possessions but who had given us something far more valuable — their unconditional love, their unflinching sacrifice, and the chance to go places they had never imagined for themselves,” she said.
In a dazzling pink Tracy Reese dress, Obama inspired the diverse audience with gems about opportunity and anecdotes of her and Barack’s humble beginnings (that certainly yanked at our heart strings). “When we were first married, our combined monthly student loan bills were actually higher than our mortgage. We were so young, so in love, and so in debt.”

November 6 will be a very important day, Vixens. Are you prepared to vote?
