Skip to comments.Michelle Obama: 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light'
Posted on 04/17/2012 6:19:58 PM PDT by TigerClaws
Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.
"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.
In the book of Matthew, we read, "the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up." (Matthew 4:16) The phrase is used to describe the words Jesus preached.

I’m out of comments..........braaaaaaap!
Unfortunately, the “light” is from an oncoming locomotive.
Judy those are the clothes MO wore on the White House Easter Egg Roll..
Drudge must have used an old photo..
she dresses as most African American women do...every thing a size to small and skin tight no matter the body size!!! JMO..
The Obamas are proof that there is no earthly salve for a sinful conscience. Those that blame others will continue to blame others even when they get the brass ring. Michelle Obama once suggested that most of us only want a piece of the pie, not the whole pie. This was before she buried her face in the whole pie and found even after that her empty soul craved MORE!
These two empty beings, devoid of any spiritual Reality, have never touched me except on one point: I like arugula, too. Thank you, Lord, for arugula!
Who talks like that?
They really think he’s the messiah. Wow.
Obamas obvious deep hatred of America could have only come from his childhood.
Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obamas past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.
The lack of credible evidence that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.
Who the key members of Obamas probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the CIA and the FBI.
Will the Citizen Journalists such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy these two tax-funded spy entities?
BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.
BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculation: what does your gut tell you?
America's early Presidents and defenders of the light of liberty understood their roles as representatives of "the People's" trust. They understood that under "the People's" written Constitution, they were temporary servants whose powers were limited by time and scope.
A few years ago when thousands of citizens attended a rally in Washington, D. C. to celebrate and honor America's Constitution and to urge for a restoration of its principles, this President said, Its not surprising that someone . . . is able to stir up a certain portion of [the American people]. "
Hundreds of thousands of peaceable, well-informed, independently knowledgeable citizens of the United States voluntarily assemble themselves in their nation's capital, and their President views them as being "stir(red) up" by "someone"?
How arrogant and insulting!
Does he view them, as he must have viewed the thousands who attended his campaign rallies, as just ignorant puppets who can be yanked around by "someone" like himself or, in that case, Glenn Beck?
What does this say about the honor and sincerity of the man who sought and holds the office of President of the United States?
Can anyone imagine any one of the first four Presidents holding such a view of a peaceable assembly of 300-500,000 of his fellow citizens?
Informed citizens are the bulwark of liberty for a nation, and they should be considered a treasure. Here are quotations from two Founders and former Presidents. Note the tone of their comments regarding the need for the kinds of citizens who attended Saturday's event in Washington:
"I do not think it for the interest of the General Government itself, and still less of the Union at large, that the State governments should be so little respected as they have been. However, I dare say that in time all these as well as their central government, like the planets revolving round their common sun, acting and acted upon according to their respective weights and distances, will produce that beautiful equilibrium on which our Constitution is founded, and which I believe it will exhibit to the world in a degree of perfection, unexampled but in the planetary system itself. The enlightened statesman, therefore, will endeavor to preserve the weight and influence of every part, as too much given any member of it would destroy the general equilibrium." --Thomas Jefferson to Peregrine Fitzhugh, 1798. ME 10:3
"I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." --Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820. ME 15:278
"If Caesar had been as virtuous as he was daring and sagacious, what could he, even in the plenitude of his usurped power, have done to lead his fellow citizens into good government?... If their people indeed had been, like ourselves, enlightened, peaceable, and really free, the answer would be obvious. 'Restore independence to all your foreign conquests, relieve Italy from the government of the rabble of Rome, consult it as a nation entitled to self-government, and do its will.' But steeped in corruption, vice and venality, as the whole nation was,... what could even Cicero, Cato, Brutus have done, had it been referred to them to establish a good government for their country?... No government can continue good but under the control of the people; and their people were so demoralized and depraved as to be incapable of exercising a wholesome control. Their reformation then was to be taken up ab incunabulis. Their minds were to be informed by education what is right and what wrong; to be encouraged in habits of virtue and deterred from those of vice by the dread of punishments proportioned, indeed, but irremissible; in all cases, to follow truth as the only safe guide, and to eschew error, which bewilders us in one false consequence after another in endless succession. These are the inculcations necessary to render the people a sure basis for the structure of order and good government. . . . --Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1819. ME 15:233
"An enlightened people, and an energetic public opinion... will control and enchain the aristocratic spirit of the government." --Thomas Jefferson to Chevalier de Ouis, 1814. ME 14:130
"I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power." --Thomas Jefferson to William C. Jarvis, 1820.
"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories. And to render even them safe, their minds must be improved to a certain degree." --Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia, 1782.
"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. Enable them to see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them. And it requires no very high degree of education to convince them of this. They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty." --Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 1787.
"Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government." --Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, 1789.
"Whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, the people, if well informed, may be relied on to set them to rights." --Thomas Jefferson to Richard Price, 1789.
From James Madison:
"Although all men are born free, and all nations might be so, yet too true it is, that slavery has been the general lot of the human race. Ignorant they have been cheated; asleep they have been surprised; divided the yoke has been forced upon them. But what is the lesson?... The people ought to be enlightened, to be awakened, to be united, that after establishing a government they should watch over it."
"A well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people."
"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."
"To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea."
Exactly. We even have West talking about the Commies in Congress (CIC) now we need to talk about the Commander in Chief.
Excellent photo idea and point.
Almost the Shining One, you might say.
Matthew 6:23 ESV
But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
ENORMOUS pile of horse sh*t.
how dumb is she??????
Anyone in D.C. seen this shelf ass bimbo cane pole fishing in Rock Creek??
I can envision her sitting on a rock trying to catch fourty catfish for her dinner.
She is talking in “new age” termiogloy
If you have done any research into the New age movement...these words have a different meaning
She is saying to the true kool aid drinkers “mankind is taking a leap forward” because of the president
Her words are just as dangerous
The Obamas want Americans to be caught unaware, as deer in the headlights. Obamanation = Roadkill America
