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.

    I just retired from teaching after 36 years. But, I lost my home at the end of the Bush administration when the housing market tanked, so I think we have to blame more than just the Obamas. Hopefully things will improve. So sorry about your job. I certainly know how that feels. My husband was dying of cancer when my home went under....and Bank of America sold my mortgage to Freddy Mac.....need I say more??? They promised to restructure the loan since I was supporting a sick husband and paying for the mortgage on one income and had a kid in college...the bank said, they would restructure payments but in order to do that I had to stop paying for 3 months and then I would qualify for the loan modification. I did as they told me and they slapped a foreclosure on me.....you have no idea....all while my 55 year old husband was dying of pancreatic cancer....So I have no love lost for Bush. But, that could have happened during either administration. It is very tough times. Last year I had two kids in my class living in their cars because their parents lost their jobs. AND the state wants the children to score well on tests??? Seriously? How can they do their homework affectively when they are trying to get a meal and a place to use the bathroom. It is awful!!!

    Hey guys, bob think Obama is Jesus! Man, this guy is a loon. And to think, this moron votes! Obama is betting that people are stupid and won't actually look into any of his policies, especially those put forth by executive order. He is a criminal who subverts the Constitution! His supporters don't care if he is right or wrong, just whether or not their American Idol wins!

    Let me make this as simple as possible even though you probably still won't get it. Government expansion by progressives in EITHER party take away state sovereignty and personal liberty. Shrinking the government allows governance at levels that allow the people to safeguard against tyranny. Bigger bad, smaller good. Have you actually looking at the number of government regulations put forth by this president and his advisors? The tentacles are entrenched into everything! I even went to get chlorine for my pool and see where the government has mandated which pool filters to buy! C'mon man you support this type of governmental oversight?

    Do they have lights in debtors prison ?

    In the 39 months since Barack Obama took the oath of office as president of the United States, the federal government’s debt has increased by $5,027,761,476,484.56.

    That is $16,043.39 for every one of the 313,385,295 people the Census Bureau now estimates live in the United States.

    At the close of business on Jan. 20, 2009, the day Obama was inaugurated, the federal government’s debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the U.S. Treasury. As of the close of business on April 16, 2012 — as many Americans were working to finalize their 2011 tax returns to meet an April 17 filin deadline — the debt reached $15,654,638,525,397.64.

    The $5,027,761,476,484.56 in additional debt that the U.S. government has taken on during the 39 months that Obama has been president is more debt than the federal government accumulated in the first 219 years of the Republic.

    Your ignorance is stunning. The country was in bad shape when Obama took office. Drastic measures had to be taken to save the republic from corporate take over. Your small mind doesn't comprehend. Go back to whatever you were doing, you're in good hands.

    I cannot believe your still blameing BUSH,he may have used some bad judgement but it did not carry over until now.BILL CLINTON inheirited much worse but at the end of his term we had a balanced budget with a surplus,but did the people elect HILLARY?
    any one with any sense knows with Hillary you got Bill,but rather than elect a woman to office B.O. was elected & he did not even chose her for V.P. if so we may not be in this mess.But that is hind site .
    This president is constantly talking about the constitution being wrong,it he is elected
    that may CHANGE to & then all bets are off,because it was set up for yours & my protection against bad politic's & bad politicians,without it,we will go back to the days of
    Germany & U.S. & guess who we will be?
