Michelle Obama: “We don’t believe in handouts. We don’t think anyone should get a free ride”

Ladies and gentlemen, the comedic stylings of Michelle Obama.

The president has dispatched first lady Michelle Obama to rally Democrats around his beleaguered Obamacare which she has boiled down to one religious phrase: “There but for the grace of God go I.”

At a New York City fundraiser for Senate Democrats Monday, the first lady opened with a long defense of Obamacare, suggesting her audience lives by the principle that everyone should have insurance.

“We don’t believe in handouts. We don’t think anyone should get a free ride,” she said Monday afternoon in a speech at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers.

“But we also understand one simple principle — that there but for the grace of God go I; that in the blink of an eye, any of us — any of us — could be faced with a terrible diagnosis. Any of us could be injured in a horrible accident. Any of us could lose the job we count on to support our family — any of us,” she said.

The angry, Godless left is awfully silent about all this God stuff lately.

After the stop at the port, Biden returned to Ellington Field. Before departure, he spoke with local volunteers working to help people sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

“The truth is, we’re going to fix it,” he said of healthcare.gov.  “God willing,” he added later.

Of course God is only handy when it suits their purpose. Heck, Obama himself was too busy giving speeches elsewhere to visit Gettysburg today. Priorities. But hey, there’s snark for that:

Would God approve of such obnoxious behavior?

    Nope, no free rides- you have to vote demoncat for your free obamaphone, and your free crack.

    “There but for the grace of God go I.”

    So, let’s assume Michelle means what she says. I know, I know, stop snickering — why all the exemptions? Why not put Congress and the President (and their families) on Obamacare?

    Aren’t those exemptions hand-outs? Free rides?
