Many voters, including those who voted for BHO in 2008, now view the Obamas as shameless and classless. But when it comes to acts of moral turpitude, there are few who challenge them. Nothing bears this out more than Michelle Obama's latest attempt to portray her husband's disastrous presidency as something of godlike proportions, orchestrated by a "divinity" named Barack Hussein.
Daniel Halpern reported that Michelle Obama made the following remarkable claim when talking up her husband at a campaign event in Nashville, Tenn. "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," wrote Halpern, pointing out "[that] in religious terms, light is used to denote the true path, presented either by God or [our] Savior." ("Michelle Obama: This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light," The Weekly Standard, April 17, 2012). Or, if you are Michelle, by a deity called Barack. I'll get back to that later.

Exactly what light has Obama brought us into? Nearly 50 million people are now on food stamps thanks to his policies or, more accurately stated, his lack of coherent policies. If we count jobs lost from the time he took office, Obama is the only president dating back to President Truman who saw a net jobs loss during his presidency. And, yes, I am aware of the argument that if we start counting the number of jobs lost beginning his second year in office the numbers change – but following that rationale, we could start counting the beginning of his third or fourth year. The numbers can be manipulated to give him a favorable outcome.
Fox Business channel stated: "Forget the official 8.2 percent unemployment rate. Take a hard look instead at what's known as the U6 rate, which tracks not only those out of work but those who've essentially given up looking for work. That rate stands at about 14.5 percent, or nearly double the official unemployment rate."

Does bringing us into the light include his forcing a condemnable health-care plan that 56 percent of the people are opposed to? The lies Obama told to get his health-care legislation passed and the lies he has told about it since passage are legion. Specific to that point, since Michelle is alluding to Scripture, how does she reconcile what God says in the book of Proverbs 6:16-19, where the text speaks of the things God hates? Specifically, Proverbs 6:19 reads: "[God hates] a false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among the brethren."
Obama has done more to erode race relations and sow the seeds of class warfare than any other president. Does she call his forcing the failed socialist policies of Europe (which even the Europeans now acknowledge as flawed) upon the greatest free-market capitalist country in the world an act of his "divinity"? Is his Executive Order 13547, Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes, which is effectively the seizure of all property rights in the United States, a step into her so-called light? Is she saying his National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which strips us of our civil rights whenever the government pleases, is a step into the light?

Obama can blame anyone he chooses and/or spin it any way he wants – but he is responsible for the high fuel prices that are forcing people to decide between cereal and bread or gasoline. Are Solyndra and the other failed green energy companies that were given billions of taxpayer dollars – as they were knowingly failing – what she calls bringing us into the light? Is his contumaciously doubling down on algae and solar panels as economically viable sources of energy examples of his bringing us into her so-called light? Or maybe she was referencing his attacks on the Supreme Court.
Even an honest, casual observer must admit the actions of the Obamas are at best arrogant and haughty – and Michelle Obama comports herself with an air of race-based entitlement. For her to use veiled supraliminal references to the Holy Scriptures is morally opprobrious, but obviously not out of character for her. It is, however, the very essence and definition of moral turpitude.
But the one thing we can thank her husband (and her) for is being autocrats and racialists. Thanks to their autocracy, "We the People" have been awakened and now stand united in our opposition to the abrogation of our traditions and his wanton defiance of the Constitution.
