It sounds like the campaign has put Michelle Obama in charge of spearheading the recruitment of the kind of go-getters that should really help put them over the top in November:

Speaking at the University of Sciences in Philadelphia on Thursday, First Lady Michelle Obama encouraged attendees to recruit their “little lazy friend” to campaign for President Barack Obama’s reelection.

“And that’s why we have launched this wonderful effort that we’re calling It Takes One,” Mrs. Obama said. “It’s simple. It is as simple as it sounds. Every time you take action to move this campaign forward, we’re asking you to inspire just one more person to step up and do their part as well.

“So if you’re making calls, knocking on doors, bring that friend, that little lazy friend, bring them,” Mrs. Obama said. “Bring them.

Team Obama will now have to spend a little extra on polling to keep track of the new “lazy little friend” voting bloc on which they’re depending so much.
