In a weird, creepy, and sycophantic poem, Huffington Post author Peter Doyle called on Michelle Obama to “step out of the shadows” and set the youth “afire” with her “genuine smile.”
In “Open Letter to Michelle Obama,” Mr. Doyle outlines why he thinks Mrs. Obama should run for President.
“We call upon you to run for President of the United States,” Doyle begins. “We need to affirm, in the person we choose in 2016, that your husband’s election heralded a New America from which we will not retreat.
“The need is urgent,” he adds.
Doyle rambles on, “from the falls of the Kaiser, Hitler Saigon, Communism, Baghdad, and Tripoli
that our foresight, prosperity, and unity count for as much as our military power in the conflicts we face now.”
Michelle Obama must set the youth “afire,” he continues. “All this must light-up in the eyes of the young if it is to live. Your Presidency would set them afire here and across the world as no other’s could you are of them and you embody our new era as no others do without personal ambition but with a genuine smile a razor Harvard-Law mind a head to call on the military and a heart not to do so in haste and the flinty can-do backbone of your forebears’ rise from slavery through the Southside to your most intimate grasp of what it takes to be a New American President.
“So we call upon you to step out of the shadows and take up the fight,” he writes to Mrs. Obama.
“Now is your time to rise,” Doyle concludes.
