Michelle Obama is so fired up over the prospect of her husband getting a second term, she’s using language that likens him to Jesus Christ.
“I am so in,” Michelle Obama said toward the end of her remarks. “I am going to be working so hard. We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light.”
The crowd of nearly 450 folks applauded as the first lady likened her husband to a Jesus-like figure.
I don’t know, I think she’s just been enjoying the taxpayer funded vacations and all of the other perks that go along with being First Lady, but I could be wrong.
While we’re on the subject of the First Lady’s campaign rhetoric, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how she brought up the memory of her father who struggled with multiple sclerosis.
Mrs. Obama recalled her father’s MS during a campaign fundraiser, saying he “had MS, was a blue-collar city worker all his life . . . [and her parents] saved for us, they sacrificed everything for us, why? Because they wanted something more for me and my brother.” The First Lady summarized the anecdote by saying “that’s what’s at stake” — by which she referred to the idea that “if you work hard, you can build a decent life for yourself and an even better life for your kids . . . So believe me, your President knows what it means whan a family struggles,” she added after talking about his life raised by a single mom.
So why does her husband continue to promote policies that make working families struggle? Most parents make sacrifices for their children. That’s the way it should be, it’s just kind of hard with gas prices at $4.10 per gallon. But she is right about what’s at stake. If her husband is reelected it will be even more difficult for Americans to work hard and build decent lives for themselves. If ObamaCare stands, it will be even worse for people with afflictions like MS, which, by the way, is a condition Mitt Romney is no stranger to.
