Scary Messiah Complex


I hope our new president doesn't start believing his own hype.


Apparently, according to the hoards of adoring followers and fans- Obama will balance the budget, revive the economy, solve the real estate problem, solve the auto industry problem, solve our gas/alternative energy problem, stop the fires and mudslides in California, mandate a college football playoff system, provide quality TV reception to the poor and needy, ban hurricanes and tornadoes, stop identity theft, reverse global warming, find Osama, solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, get rid of corruption in government and achieve world peace.
Then on the 7th day, he will rest.

Based on some of the remarks of the current occupant I believe President George W. Bush believes it to be so. At last check, no one in the Bush administration has removed the O’s from the keyboards. Thank you President Bush for your steadfastness on the War on Terror, your appointment of two pro-life Supreme Court justices, cutting taxes, I just wish you were a fiscal conservative when it came to domestic spending. If only George Allen had not said, “Macaca.”

Yeah, at first all the 'worshiping' was just kind of amusing...but it's gotten to a point of almost being frightening. Good thing we know the REAL King is on the throne.

I listened to the concert on the radio yesterday while I was working. I can certainly understand the excitement on the part of our black sisters and brothers in seeing a black man elected as president. I am 62 and and have pretty much seen all of the modern civil rights happenings in my life time. Even Tiger Woods gave a speech at this concert. This is a great moment for our country in electing a minority, but boy oh boy am I petrified at what might or will happen. This man has been dealt a tough hand and thinks he can draw to an inside straight every time. I do fear that he is a socialist at heart. Things have happened to him so fast that I think he sincerely feels he can do no wrong. Fasten your seat belts ladies and gentlemen. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

I think I'm more concerned about Nancy Pelosi than I am Obama.

Its going to take him 6 long days to fix only 14 things. Surely the great and powerful is able to complete at least 3 things per day and have one day to run for supreme ruler of the western hemisphere and one day for rest. Oh well, I just want to know who is behind the curtain pulling the levers.

With much reservation in who this man really is but great trust in our Sovereign Lord, I am indeed proud of our nation and our first African American President. The way our country has united, putting angry and bitterness of this hard fought ugly election aside, is a wonderful thing. But greater still is the peace, knowing as a people and a nation, we have broken down the ugly walls of racial prejudice, proving to a doubting and troubled world, Democracy can still work in good times or in troubled times. Pledging to all, ours is truly “One Nation, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL!”

he got twice as many people to hear him as Dr. King. It's madness I tell you. I do have one comment regarding Obama...

As far as I have been told he is inter-racial. That is that he has a black father and a Caucasian mother. So how does this make him the first "African American President?" I know he looks black, but what if he was light skinned, would we still call him the first "African American President?" It's almost like it wasn't good enough of us to elect an inter-racial president. We really need to pat ourselves on the back for electing an African American president. I've only heard one news person ever refer to him as inter-racial. When does half equal whole? I'm not a racist, but I just don't get why they wont just call him what he is. Will that make the news ratings any less significant? The guy was raised by white people and hardly knows the man who's "race" he has chosen to associate with. It seems to me that if he were going to be anything but inter-racial he would be Caucasian. I know I'm splitting hairs over this, but everytime I turn on the TV all I hear about is how we elected the first black president in history. That's great an all, but we didnt' We elected the first inter-racial president. This is a big enough achievement for this country as it is, can't we just be happy with that? Why do we have to try to make the front page of the newspaper "better" This is like calling Tiger Woods black. I've never read an article that said, "First black golfer to win 3 majors in a year, etc..."
Just my 2 cents.
