Barack Obama Will Completely Eradicate Child Suffering. . . Everywhere

Alright, so normally, I wouldn't comment on a politician's wife or family. I've never understood why they have to be there at the rally or whatever for the photo op. I'd just as soon not see Al and Tipper Gore make out after he receives the Democrat nomination. (Thanks Al, I didn't think you were gay before, but now that you seem to feel the need to prove it, I wonder) We're not voting for the couple, we're voting for the guy (in most cases). I don't care what Laura Bush does, or how crazy Nancy Reagan was, doesn't matter. I'm voting for the guy and I expect him to do his damn job without feeling he has to consult his wife. Now I understand that marriage is a partnership, and Presidents as far back as John Adams have run ideas and strategies by their wives, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, I just don't see the need to have to vet a candidate's spouse. Further more, I don't see the need to criticize spouses or family members. However, when said spouse delves into the political arena, said spouse is fair game. That's the way it was with Hillary Clinton, and that's the way it is with Michelle Obama.

Now that I have the "I don't usually do this, but I'm going to do it now" disclaimer out of the way, let's look at what Mrs. Obama had to say in Coloradao (courtesy of Rachel Lucas) last week.

"We have one candidate who essentially is telling us every day that the world as it is just fine. That what we've been doing for the last eight years is fine," Obama said. "Stay the course. Don't make too many changes.

"And then we have this other candidate -- Barack Obama -- who is saying every day that the world as it is not right. It's not good enough," she said. . .

"I wish we had time to be divided. I wish we had time to be upset. To be angry. To be disappointed. I wish we did," Obama said. "Because if we had time for that, then things wouldn't be so bad right now. Instead, we're in a place where another four or eight years of the world as it is will devastate the life of some child."

Who is buying this? Who is eating this up? Who? Does anyone really believe that if we don't elect Barry Obama right this second, then the sky will fall? Really Michelle? Is the moon going to come crashing down into the Earth if we have 4 more years of Liberal Republican control of the executive branch? Four or eight more years of the world as it is will devastate the life of some child? What does that even mean? Is that on Barry's website? Is it paragraph 16, sentence 4 of his campaign platform? "I, Barry Obama, will totally eradicate child suffering around the globe." Does anyone else who listens to Barry's speeches expect him one day to say "Be still and know that I am God"? I know I do. But back to Michelle, hopefully one day a reporter will discover that he has testicles and ask Michelle to elaborate on one of her insane comments. How about asking "which child Mrs. Obama?" Or "how can you make such a vague blanket statement and expect people to take you seriously?" Or "Michelle, why are you off your medication?"

This odd leftist world view that Michelle Obama personifies is just insulting. America is in decline, capitalism has failed, we're the cause of the planet's problems, we're killing children, we're too powerful, we need to understand why our enemies hate us and talk with them, we invented gravity because we hated Amelia Earhart, blah, blah, blah. I think maybe Michelle should sit back and reflect on how this country she says is broken is the country that has allowed her to make over 300 grand a year as an "executive director of community affairs" at a hospital. Then again, maybe this country is broken.

What I'd like to know is, what that poor child's name is? Evidently the Obamas have some kind of inside knowledge.

//sarcasm off

//nope, back on again

Jeeze, let's see if we can't drive hyperbole and exaggeration to new hysterical heights!

Too late. Obama's going to make the waters recede, remember? I wasn't kidding in my post, I seriously expect Obama to begin plagiarizing the red parts of the New Testament whenever I hear his speeches.
