Obama: You Know, Actually, Just Talking To Your Husband About His Job Doesn't Qualify You To Be President

Heh. Sort of a risky thing to say in the Democratic environment, because I'm pretty sure that most liberal women are so "empowered" they do in fact believe they're qualified to do their husbands' (or life partners') jobs through osmosis. Or anyone's job, really.

So this is something of a heresy. Right now the victim card is being polished to a high sheen.

Obama went out of his way to belittle Clinton's experience as first lady.

"I think the fact of the matter is that Sen. Clinton is claiming basically the entire eight years of the Clinton presidency as her own, except for the stuff that didn't work out, in which case she says she has nothing to do with it," Obama said, and added, referring to his relationship with his wife, Michelle, "There is no doubt that Bill Clinton had faith in her and consulted with her on issues, in the same way that I would consult with Michelle, if there were issues," Obama said. "On the other hand, I don't think Michelle would claim that she is the best qualified person to be a United States Senator by virtue of me talking to her on occasion about the work I've done."

Speaking of empowerment.... which religion is Hillary, again? Apparently an Empowermentarian.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, with the traveling press corps in tow, attended church services this morning. She sang and nodded in agreement during the service, and even stuck a contribution on the offering plate before heading out for a full day of campaigning through the Hawkeye State.


Clinton (D-N.Y.) sat towards the front during the service, held at Grace United Methodist Church.


She participated in the unison prayer: "God of empowerment, help us to give all of our children the anchor of faith, the rudder of hope, the sails of health care and education, the paddles of family and community to keep them afloat when life's sea gets rough. Amen."

The God of Empowerment? What?

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that those who should believe in Him should be totally Empowered, like in those Nike ads, climbing walls and skydiving and pole-vaultng and shit. Jesus Empowers, baby.

Perhaps she should also say a few prayers to the God of Avoiding Lame Run-On Metaphors, too. "Paddles of family and community," indeed.

This topic requires the obligatory link to this old Onion piece: Women Now Empowered By Nearly Everything They Do.
