"Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual"

Heard on Hugh Hewitt, here's Barack Obama's wife Michelle laying out some chilling, proud totalitarian imagery. Partial transcript here, partial audio and Hewitt's fisking here.

Be sure to listen to the audio and her tone of voice for full effect that a transcript of "We have to fix our souls" cannot capture.

We have to compromise and sacrifice for one another in order to get things done. Barack Obama is the only person in this race who understands that. That before we work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken, in this nation. If we can't see ourselves in one another we will never make those sacrifices. So I am here right now because I am married to the only person in this race who has a chance of healing this nation.

Barack is more than ready. He will be ready today. He will be ready on day one, a year from now, five years from now, he is ready. That is not the question. The question is what are we ready for? Wait Wait Wait! Because we say we are ready for change. We say we are ready for change, but see, change is hard. Change will always be hard...

And Barack Obama, will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your division. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zone. That you push yourself to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved and uninformed.
Get any kind of adrenalin rush from that?

The Captain has more.

Barack is going to give 'em what they asked for - good and hard.

But don't worry - he's just another CFR stooge. He won't do anything to the American people that the Morgans, Rockefellers et al. don't want.
