"Barack Will Never Allow You to Go Back to Your Lives as Usual."
Last night I appeared on Hugh's show, and his producer Duane mentioned a Michelle Obama speech at UCLA. Captain Ed talked about this a bit, but I hadn't seen anyone transcribe the part of the speech where it gets a little... unnerving. It starts at about 8:41 in the audio.
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'm sorry, nowhere in the Constitution does it authorize the President of the United States to demand anyone shed their cynicism. And I'm all for people pushing themselves to be better, but I don't think the President demanding it is the way to go about it.
And what if we kind of like our lives as usual? What about Americans' freedom to be uninvolved and uninformed?
Darleen at Protein Wisdom transcribed what follows:
"You have to stay at the seat at the table of democracy with a man like Barack Obama not just on Tuesday but in a year from now, in four years from now, in eights years from now, you will have to be engaged."
Ah. Apparently apathy will be criminalized, then?
Does anybody on the left side of the aisle find this rhetoric a little creepy? Isn't this describing an authoritarian presidency way beyond anything George W. Bush has done or proposed?
Do the powers of the presidency really encompass everything Michelle says Obama wants and plans to do? Based on this rhetoric, isn't he actually running for messiah?

So who’s moving to Montana?
He also says he’s going to change the planet. If I were him I would first change speechwriters.
what irony; he is going to demand the masses be informed and engaged; if they were informed and engaged now, he would never have the opportunity to come to power and demand the masses be informed and engaged.
Saul Alinsky... Hillarys mentor
Antonio Gramsci... another Hillary mentor
Frank Marshall Davis... Obamas mentor
And we were worried when it was all just about the Clintons' Legacy. Yikes...these two are uber ambitious.
Seriously. Though Mark Levin mentioned some spots in the Gulf of Mexico last week :)
Wherever, as long as we have land.
Translation: You have to keep paying attention to him all the time, or he'll have a tantrum and throw his blocks across the room.
Thanks for links.
If Barak becomes president, will we all have to committ mass suicide down the road or take a ride in a flying saucer. This cult thing is getting out of hand. Sheesh
I wonder what television shows I'll be allowed to watch, if any. At least I'll get in shape during workouts in the yard.
Do you people see who is talking about when he says “We”????? Do you know what city he was in when he said “We will rebuild this city. We will rebuild this county. We will rebuild this state. We will rebuild this country.” He was in New Orlean and you can guess who he was talking to and who he meant when he said “We”.
>>Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions.

Wow! So he wants to abolish Welfare, food stamps and section 8 housing?!
He’s got my vote!
Or am I somehow missreading that...?
I am waiting for him to make the pronoucement “You know, the Quran has some good points in it, it should be required reading in our schools for balance”.
So far, so good:
“..... he is going to demand the masses be informed and engaged; if they were informed and engaged now, he would never have the opportunity to come to power and demand the masses be informed and engaged.”
The money quote on the entire disgusting ObamaPhenomena
