Michelle Obama: ‘This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light’

April 18, 2012 at 9:15 am (Bible, Messiah, Michelle Obama, President Obama, Tennessee, Unemployment)

If by ‘the light’ she means over 8% unemployment on a consistent basis, and a record 88 million people not in the work force, then yes, he has led us into the light.

Behold, the chosen one…

Via the Weekly Standard:

Michelle Obama made a remarkable claim when talking up her husband, President Barack Obama, at a campaign event earlier today in Nashville, Tennessee.
The crowd of nearly 450 folks applauded as the first lady likened her husband to a Jesus-like figure.”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.”
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.

Allahpundit believes this may not be the best tactic for Team Messiah… er… Obama.

Is Team Hopenchange seriously going to push a “messiah” message this time around? Even a little bit? Note to Axelrod and Plouffe: When your Senate candidates are suppressing clips of them praising The One and your own base is churning outvideos like this, it might be time to update the 2008 “Obama as savior of mankind” chapter in the ol’ playbook.
