"Nobody really believes that Obama is the Messiah. It's only a talking point for Rush Limbaugh and his coolaid drinkers to whine about. I have great hope for him and our country. The odds are stacked against him."
This was a statement made in an email by a friend of mine that I have lot's of respect for. Naturally, he's of the opinion that no level headed Democrat would venture to make such a mistake as to think that the Messiah had arrived in the person of Obama. And I agree .... no level headed Democrat would. But my friend and myriads of others have failed to see that there are countless fringe Democrats who are obviously not level-headed who actually do believe that the Messiah has arrived! And though Democrats across the board are planning to use George Bush as their scape goat again (for the next 20 years one friend told me) for everything that Barack the Messiah will not be able to change, the fact of the matter is that thousands of dreamy-eyed Dems think that their god has arrived:: Let their words speak for themselves!
"Many even see in Obama a messiah-like figure, a great soul, and some affectionately call him Mahatma Obama." -- Dinesh Sharma [OK]
"We just like to say his name. We are considering taking it as a mantra." -- Chicago Sun Times [Probably don't want to read this newspaper anymore]
"A Lightworker -- An Attuned Being with Powerful Luminosity and High-Vibration Integrity who will actually help usher in a New Way of Being" -- Mark Marford [Oh hey ...this isn't New Age mentality at all ... right. Looks like the dreamy-eyed Democratic fringe to me]
"What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation's political history" -- Jesse Jackson, Jr. [Good grief, did you see Jackson's display on national television? Talk about loosing it ... and being out of touch with reality]
"This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal."
-- Barack Obama [Apparently Barack has even bought into his own rhetoric!]
"Does it not feel as if some special hand is guiding Obama on his journey, I mean, as he has said, the utter improbability of it all?" -- Daily Kos [I'm not feeling anything yet ....]
"He communicates God-like energy..." -- Steve Davis (Charleston, SC) [Oh please, somebody help this dude ...]
"I'll do whatever he says to do. I'll collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear."
-- Halle Berry [Well Halle ...you just proved that your beauty just took a left turn into the twilite zone big time]
"A quantum leap in American consciousness" -- Deepak Chopra [Maybe un-consciousness]
He is not operating on the same plane as ordinary politicians. . . . the agent of transformation in an age of revolution, as a figure uniquely qualified to open the door to the 21st century." -- Gary Hart [No, this isn't a Messiah mentality. Nope.]
"Barack Obama is our collective representation of our purest hopes, our highest visions and our deepest knowings . . . He's our product out of the all-knowing quantum field of intelligence."
-- Eve Konstantine [Hold on, I'm expecting to lose my mind at any moment ...]
"This is bigger than Kennedy. . . . This is the New Testament." "I felt this thrill going up my leg. I mean, I don't have that too often. No, seriously. It's a dramatic event." -- Chris Matthews [Chris Matthews should be removed from national television for his arrogance and stupidity. He is the prime example of biased news coverage]
"[Obama is ] creative imagination which coupled with brilliance equals wisdom . . . [He is] the man for this time." -- Toni Morrison [Deep Mesiah complex here]
"Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. . . . He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh . . . Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves." -- Ezra Klein [New Age slop for sure....]
"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." -- Gerald Campbell [Yep. The Democratic party has gone over the deep end ... all in response to the floundering Republican failures, no doubt]
"We're here to evolve to a higher plane . . . he is an evolved leader . . . [he] has an ear for eloquence and a Tongue dipped in the Unvarnished Truth." -- Oprah Winfrey [One of the top five reasons to ignore anything and everything that spews from the mouth of the Guru-ess of Nirvana]
"I would characterize the Senate race as being a race where Obama was, let's say, blessed and highly favored. That's not routine. There's something else going on. I think that Obama, his election to the Senate, was divinely ordered. . . . I know that that was God's plan." -- Bill Rush [Ah, yes, that just might be. But what is God trying to show us by this revealation?]
