Ask not what your prayer circle can do for you. Ask what your prayer circle can do for my husband.
In an interview to rally black voters on the Tom Joyner Show, Michelle Obama chose some rather odd words to motivate black voters of faith.
Transcript via Black America Web:
So, once again, we have the power. We’ve got this man in office. I think we’re all proud of Barack and his accomplishments. Everybody I know in our communities are praying for us. Every day we feel that. And let me just tell your listeners that it means all the world to us to know that there are prayer circles out there and people who are keeping the spirits clean around us.
“Keeping the spirits clean around us?” Huh? She sounds like the liberal caricature of Christine O’Donnell. Bubble, bubble, toil, and trouble.
As for the “prayer circles” and “Everybody I know in our communities is praying for us” and “we’re all proud of Barack and his accomplishments” jabber, have the Obamas learned nothing about the price of arrogance and the value of humility over the last two years.
Question: Does Michelle O ever pray for anyone other than Barack?
Instead of feeling entitled to America’s pride and prayers, why doesn’t the First Lady show some pride and say prayers for Americans outside the White House, not seeking office, not calling on her to raise campaign funds for them, and not expecting her to clean up their problems.
Ah. Forget it. Being the “most powerful woman in the world” means never having to apologize for one’s galactic hubris.
