A Michelle Obama Statement Reaches Its Expiration Date

Quoting from Jim Geraghty's Morning Jolt:

And yes, [Romney] brought up the recent Obama administration changes to welfare:

Romney also attacked the president for an executive order that allows states to opt out of parts of the welfare law that was passed by former President Clinton and a Republican Congress. "He is trying to take work out of the welfare requirement," he said. "It is changing the nature of America, changing the nature of what Democrats have fought for and Republicans have fought for."

Uh oh. That's not what Michelle told us he would do as president:

Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

I know Jim has kept a list of Barack Obama statements that have reached their expiration date. I don't know if "all Michelle Obama's statements come with an expiration date", but it's obvious this one did.

Remember the good ol' days:

Apparently those days are over.
