White House talking head Jay Carney explained that, when the First Lady said on April 17, 2012,
“This President has brought us out of the dark and into the light”
she was not making a sacrilegious reference to Jesus Christ.
She was actually thinking of the song from the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy, the Brainless Scarecrow, Heartless Tinman and Cowardly Lion have just been resurrected from the poppies and are heading into the Emerald City with music in their hearts:
You’re out of the woods
You’re out of the dark
You’re out of the night
Step into the sun
Step into the light
