Michelle Obama calls on Congress to 'do something worthy' on gun control

We’ll assume the “wow” elicited from the Washington Post’s Philip Rucker has to do with first lady Michelle Obama’s direct appeal to Congress to act on her husband’s gun control proposals. In a preview of Mrs. Obama’s appearances today in Chicago, Rucker had written, “White House officials say that the first lady will speak from the perspective of a mother, not as a gun-control booster. And unlike the president, aides said, she will not call on Congress to do anything.”


Rucker’s piece did, however, suggest that the first lady’s speech would be “a rare foray into the politics of the day that could presage a more activist role during her husband’s second term.”

CNN Erin McPike described the move as a “risk” for the first lady, but it certainly wasn’t a risk to her standing with the media.


The majority of the speech adhered to less-risky suggestions to curtail gun violence, such as making sure that young people have access to computer labs, community centers and basketball courts.

So, is it time to pour more a few more million into social programs like midnight basketball?
