Do you agree with Michelle Obama? 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light'

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.

In Micah, light, however, is a reference to God's words. "Rejoice not over me, O my enemy; when I fall, I shall rise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD will be a light to me," it says in Micah 7:8.

Either way, in religious terms, light is used to denote the true path, presented either by God or a savior. Or by Barack Obama.

    That's because their political base that they want to exploit - the African Americans, and hispanic Americans, the blue collar working man, the poor and the under educated tends to be vary religious and church going. Ergo, the Messiah theme works quite well with them. AKA- they are being played. I just hope they remember how he has shown his contempt for religion when he made that remark about country people clinging to religion and guns in the 2009 campaign. Minus the guns and the reference to "country people out of his statement and you will notice his own statement can equally apply to religous African Americans and Hispanics too. Besides, current events with his war on religion and trying to force churches and faith based employers to fund contraceptives and abortions through their insurance coverage in a clear violation of the first Amendment's freedom of religion when those churches and such have a clear conscious stance opposed to contraceptives and abortions, also shows that this man has a contempt for for at least the Roman Catholic Christian faith and christianity in general and jewish faith too probably.

    The Occupy Movement was born because we are free enough to address the apparent, finally. It's been happening over the past 30 years. GW was a Dark Ages president.

    No, the occutard movement was born because a bunch of parasites thought they could get free stuff that somebody else paid for. And Obama had better be glad Bush couldn't run for a third term.

    He has divided us more than we were before. Everything that is supposed to be going up is going down and vice versa. He acts more like a spoiled child than a President. He blames all his failures on the past and takes credit for things he had nothing to do with. He is a miserable failure of epic proportions.

  • Singerar Bali 2012/04/20 22:29:16

    Wow...another Christian man spewing vomit on a woman. Cheers.

    Obama is the best choice because he fits the bill, is a good family man and I like him.

    Have a good day fine Christian. What a great role model you are for your family. Do you call your Wifea dim bulb as well? I bet you do...maybe even worst. You seem a little angry.

    Dim bulb is not spewing vomit. I guess since you do that you can't recognize when it's not done to you!
  • Singerar Quietma... 2012/04/21 00:12:08
    Singerar
    What??? You didn't even make sense.
    Yes, calling a woman a dim bulb is not Christian. Obviously you call your wife much worse since "dim bulb " mean's nothing to you.

    Unfortunately the light he promised to shed on a transparent administration has a burned out bulb. I suppose, however, if the darkness is likened to a tunnel, and President Obama has brought the light, then it could be that freight train barreling down on us.
