The Obama Phenomenon & His god-Like Status
For many people, Obama can't do much wrong. They look at things like his good looks, his stentorian way of gifted oratory skills, his youth, his charisma, his elegance sophistication, that he seems very bright, that he seems cool since he's not just another an old, white politician, that he is black, and that this will hopefully will end all the ugly screaming by blacks and leftists about how America has been racist; that Obama's election will represent a new era of racial peace and unity. Because Obama remained vague about what he wanted to "change," he was like the horoscope for many Americans; people projected into Obama all of their wishes and hopes of the nation being right again after an unpopular, prolonged war in Iraq and bad economy.
In fact for many people, they projected more than their wishes of what they wanted in a leader; they saw a messianic and god-like figure in Obama.
Obama himself is hinted and subtly insinuating at a god-like status. This just goes to show that we as human beings were built and designed to crave a savior for our world. Christians see this role fulfilled by Jesus Christ. For most on the left who are secular, they saw Obama fulfilling this promise.
This particular blog is dedicated to Obama as a divine, god-like figure.
For many, Obama fulfills the craving and need we have for God, as he claims that upon accepting the Democratic nomination for president, that this is the moment where oceans receded and the planet began to heal.
This commentary certainly makes clear that Obama is setting himself up as a god-like, messiah-savior figure.
In fact, a Danish newspaper editorial claims that Obama is greater than Jesus.
Many people believe that Obama is an enlightened being and not just another human.
Many black politicians see Obama has a kind of god, as Jesse Jackson Jr. says that Obama's winning the Democratic nomination was the "single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation's political history" and that another chapter should be added to the Bible commemorating this event.
Folks from the left-wing Daily Kos believes Obama to be a mythical figure and god-like.
A Newsweek cover depicts Obama as the Indian god Lord Shiva, which offended many Indian-Americans.
In a letter to a newspaper, the writer sees Obama as a messiah of some type.
Leftist commentator Chris Matthews says that Obama's rise is like the New Testament.
Erza Klein of Newsweek mixes Biblical language to describe how Obama would elevate all of us to a higher selves.
Gerald Campbell said, "For his part, Obama has the capacity to summon heroic forces from the spiritual depths of ordinary citizens and to unleash therefrom a symphonic chorus of unique creative acts whose common purpose is to tame the soul and alleviate the great challenges facing mankind."
Oprah Winfrey uses Messianic language to describe Obama and how "he is the one."
Actor Jamie Foxx introduced Obama as "our lord and savior."
Leftist filmaker Spike Lee says that we should now measure time as before Obama and after Obama.
Leftist commentator Chris Matthews says that he doesn't understand the criticism or opposition to Obama since "he's done everything right, he's clean as a whistle, he's never done anything wrong, he's the perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American." Idolization anyone? In Christianity, only one person that's ever lived was perfect which was Jesus Christ who was God. For leftists, sounds like they found their god-figure.
Here's how much leftists such as Chris Matthews idolizes Obama & how much they believe everyone else should give deference to, bow down, and worship their god; just the very fact that Romney indicated that he would run for president again after the 2008 election was over, Matthews saw this as arrogant and showed a kind of disdain on the part of Romney. How dare Romney even think about challenging Obama and the very thought of someone trying to unseat his god! How sacreligious. Is nothing sacred for conservatives?
A Plea For Reality
Most people's reasons for liking Obama as listed above are irrelevant reasons for liking him as a president. Looks and speaking skills only help in delivering the message. What's more important is what the message is.
The questions to ask:
Are Obama's economic policies helping or hurting our country?
Is Obama too far left in his policies?
Does Obama care about being truthful and intellectually consistent?
How does he deliver his economic message?
Does he look and sound like the president I've always wanted?
Does he make me feel good?
Pay attention to what he actually says, not how he says it.
This means it doesn't matter if you like Obama as a person. Rather you need to assess his policies, his character, and his integrity as a leader. Unfortunately for the country, Barack Obama's presidency fails on all these levels. This is a man who was close enough to unrepentant terrorist and radical Bill Ayers (who wants to work to end capitalism everyday) to start his campaign in Ayers' living room.
A Disaster Presidency
Barack Obama's presidency so far has been an absolute disaster.
Never has there been a modern presidency whose policies that hurt the country, showed incredible dishonesty, has been this far leftist, had so little experience to qualify him for the job, made so many amateur mistakes which have been ignored by an adoring media, and has shown such flaws in his character. Obama himself admits that people aren't better off than they were four years ago.
Let's take a look at each area of failure.
Corruptions & Scandals
Dishonesties, Lack of Transparency, & Hypocrisy
Despite all this, the Obama Administration rarely, if ever, acknowledges that their policy or idea or value was wrong. Rather the only mistake that he made was his inability to sell his policy.
To further de-myth and see all the political, all-too human mistakes of Obama like anyone else, please click on the picture to the right.
This includes lots of videos, his character, and the cracks forming in his political base.
People also forget how Obama did not have one accomplishment or any experiences which would prepare him as the president.
People are seeing Obama for who he truly is; a leftist, Chicago politician who plays fast and loose with the truth.
The fact is that this man was not ready to become president. He had no qualifications and had no executive nor governing experience. His only accomplishment was being rated as the most liberal member of Congress.
Final Summation on Obama & His Place In History As The First Black President

Obama being the first black president is historically significant.
George Will once said the folowing; when Frank Robinson became the first black manager in Major League Baseball for the Cleveland Indians, it was a historically significant moment for racial equal treatment of blacks.
However it was a bigger day when Frank Robinson was fired as the manager a couple of years later due to all the games his team lost. This was because when the Indians fired Robinson, they treated him like any other manager who did not win games. The same needs to happen for Obama.
