                                            What to make of Michelle Obama's use the terms, “The world as it is”

                                            Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for Radicals. In last night's
                                            speech, Michelle Obama said something that peeked my curiousity. She
                                            said:


                                                      "Barack stood up that day," talking about a visit to Chicago

                                                      He talked about “The world as it is” and “The world as it should
                                                      be..."

                                                      And, "All of us driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won’t
                                                      do – that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should
                                                      be."

                                            Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Saul Alinsky’s book, Rules for
                                            Radicals:


                                                      "The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of
                                                      the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search
                                                      themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive —
                                                      but real — allies of the Haves…The most unethical of all means is the
                                                      non-use of any means... The standards of judgment must be rooted in
                                                      the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our
                                                      wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be."

                                            It's just a guess but maybe she heard it at church?




                                            UPDATE: Maybe it wasn't anti-semite Wright... Maybe it was Barack
                                            who came up with the Alinsky quotes.
                                            It appears Barack Obama was hired by an Alinsky protege back in his
                                            days as a community organizer.
