All praise the federal bureaucrat

Michelle Obama says they are the back bone of America. The following is from a reporter covering the story.
Craig

Addressing the bureaucrats at the Department of Agriculture, Michelle Obama had this to say:


[W]hat America needs to remember is that this nation is built on the backs of you -- workers who have dedicated their lifetimes to working on behalf of the issues that are so important to this nation. And before we do anything here in this town -- in this country -- we thought it is important to say "thank you" for the work that you've done, thank you for the work that you're gonna do because we're going to need you working so very hard over the next several years. (emphasis added)

In other words, Mrs. Obama is arguing that America was built on the backs of federal bureaucrats. Now don't get me wrong: I stand second to no one in applauding the hard work performed by federal workers who provide valuable and necessary services -- for example, in the military. And then there are the state (or city) workers like policemen, firemen, teachers and the rest; without them, of course, we couldn't get along.

But the First Lady has reserved her accolades for office workers at the Department of Agriculture -- in her view, they are the backbone of America.
