The Obama Cult Of Personality


Peter Hitchens tears into the cult of Obama like no one else:

Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.

I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.

It already has all the signs of such a thing. The newspapers which recorded Obama’s victory have become valuable relics. You may buy Obama picture books and Obama calendars and if there isn’t yet a children’s picture version of his story, there soon will be.

Proper books, recording his sordid associates, his cowardly voting record, his astonishingly militant commitment to unrestricted abortion and his blundering trip to Africa, are little-read and hard to find.

If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything. He plainly doesn’t believe it himself. His cliche-stuffed, PC clunker of an acceptance speech suffered badly from nerves. It was what you would expect from someone who knew he’d promised too much and that from now on the easy bit was over.

He needn’t worry too much. From now on, the rough boys and girls of America’s Democratic Party apparatus, many recycled from Bill Clinton’s stained and crumpled entourage, will crowd round him, to collect the rich spoils of his victory and also tell him what to do, which is what he is used to.

You couldn’t of asked for better timing of this article:

Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation’s 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

“Yes We Can” planning rallies will be at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the downtown McDonald’s restaurant, 1100 Kansas Ave., until Jan. 13. The goals are to secure a national holiday in Obama’s honor, to organize celebrations around his inauguration and to celebrate the 200th birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, who was born on Feb. 12 1809.

In the end I believe the only thing the liberals are accomplishing with this embarrassing cult of Obama is setting themselves up for a huge disappointment. What happens when Obama starts to pull back on all those completely insane promises he made? Many will make excuses for him but those on the fringe left will be mighty upset.

A national holiday? Obviously then we are going to need holidays for the first woman President, the first Jewish President, the first Muslim, first gay, Indian-American, Native American, Chinese American, etc., etc…
Oh, we won’t? This is just going to be based on skin color?
No, we’d better set aside Feb. as a month of giddy celebration and multi-culti food frenzy.

this is to much, i think i may laugh my ass off. are you serious? it really is a cult, how can it not be. damn i can’t wait for the pretty, pretty, shiney shiney to wear off. to freaking funny. hey, i want my own holiday. pretty please. can i cani.?

It is unbelievable how American’s leftists are gullible people. Do you realize that this is happening in America, the Greatest Nation in the world (for now at least, but not for long with Obama)? What’s wrong with these idiots? You would think that you are in a lost village of a country in Africa where they believe in voodoo and that kind of stuff.

What a shame for America to have so many ignorant citizens. I though this country was supposed to be a model for the world? Gee! Since when did stupidity become a model? America is completely “out of order”.

You see, leftist liberals lost all their values. They have thrown out their religion. Now they believe in stuff like abortions and gay marriages, etc. When people lose their values, like they did, they need new values. So they go for new Gods like Obama or for new religions like Al Gore’s environmentalism.

Conservative people did not lose their values. This is why they don’t lose their mind on stupidities. Leftist liberals have no soul; they are puppets, so it is easy to manipulate them. They are idiots.

Shakes head in wonder where the brain train went on the left.

So let’s review: At a McDonalds in Topeka Kansas they will be serving Obama cake on Inauguration Day and planning for a national holiday and another excuse not to work?

Just wait until the food fascists in the coming liberal nanny state get done with McDonalds. All those overweight burger flippers in love with Obama will either be unemployed or flipping lettuce leaves.

Readers may recall when Newsweek editor Jon Meacham called Obama’s cult “creepy.” I can’t think of anything creepier than planning a national holiday for a President who hasn’t even been inaugurated yet.

It would be like they carved Jimmy Carter’s face onto Mount Rushmore before he took office. They would have had to climb back up and carve him off 4 years later.

Some of my left leaning aquaintences, upon learning just some of what Obama has in store for America, have begun to express a few questions. For example;

1. If he really does cut the military, will my job be in jeopardy? From an employee at the base dining facility.

2. What do you mean the democrats want to take my 401K? From a co-worker in my shop.

3. Why is the stock market still going down? From my sister-in law.

4. But, but, but, he said we woould be getting a tax cut/rebate check, now he’s trying to lower our expectations? From everybody else very soon.

The looks of utter bewilderment on the faces of those who supported Obama has caused near insane giggles to bubble up inside me since the day the hangovers began on Nov 5, 2008, often spilling out into gales of raucus laughter. By the end of thursday Nov 6, my ribs were aching from the growing tales of surprise, and dissapiontment. It’s almost too hillarious for words.
Who knew the election of his imperial majesty, the lord barack hussien obama, would create so much humor, and mirth in my life. While watching my beloved country flirt with the nightmare of socialism is terrifying in the extreame, it may be fun to observe the dawning realization of the willfully ignorant, that no salvation will be forthcomming from the government. Being producers in this great nation, my family, and I are more than ready for any eventuality. Hang on folks, it’s going to be a wild ride.

In the end I believe the only thing the liberals are accomplishing with this embarrassing cult of Obama is setting themselves up for a huge disappointment.

This is the upshot of an Obama administration. I look forward to the whining of the many people that — for reasons beyond our comprehension — expected Obama to somehow solve their problems with a snap of his fingers.

And a holiday for Obama? I love getting time off as much as the next guy, but this is ridiculous. And I’m no history expert, so could one please answer this question – Did George Washington receive this much fanfare when he got elected?

Remember when we used to celebrate Abraham Lincoln & George Washington’s birthday before it was changed to MLK & President’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, MLK was a great man as well. Yet what, besides winning an election under forms of corruption not seen since the days of Tammandy Hall has Obama done to earn his own holiday? And what holiday will we be forced to trade off for it this time? Independence Day? Easter? Thanksgiving? Christmas?

McDonald’s is the mainstay dining experience for most who vote Dem because they have no ambition to work for better fare. Despite efforts from PETA, vegetarians, and the health conscious don’t look for them to be closing up shop anytime soon. On Obama Day the masses will likely be given their free handout Happy Meals.

Democrats now looking like deer caught in the headlights asking, “Wh-what happened?” are deserving of the earned hilarity of Conservatives. So feel free to ROTFLMAO at each and every opportunity. Mayhaps they’ll wake up and realize what fools they were to buy into the Obama & DNC myths.

Spidey Terry;
Actually Washington was offered the position of Monarch after he won but declined that offer.

Lets not forget the Dem’s promise of single-payer healthcare (aka: O-Canada). The long lines, the waiting lists, the new taxes, the lack of specialists, the empty beds, people going blind, losing kidneys, the rationing, and the DYING from lack of care!!!!

O thank you Obama. It will be like Logan’s Run….once I get to age 60, you might as well surrender to an early death. If you’re no longer a “contributer to society” you’re good as dead.

I’m 67 years old, and spent 30 years in the Army. I’m not a religious person, but I thank what ever great being that sees over us that I was able to grow up in, live and be a part of what I believe is the real America. It breaks my heart to know that my grandchildren will not be able to really know what America is and was once.

“the only thing the liberals are accomplishing with this embarrassing cult of Obama is setting themselves up for a huge disappointment.”

Even in 8 to 12 years, if conservatives can equal out the congress and possibly elect a conservative President, the damage that Obama and this liberal congress will do to this country may never be able to be undone.

You are right Harvey. I live in Canada and I can tell you that the damage that the idiot leftists did to our country are here to stay. You cannot get rid of socialism when it strikes your country. Only a civil war could get rid of it.

Some related reforms embraced by Obama’s transition advisers would alter procedures for decision-making on climate issues. A book titled “Change for America,” being published next week by the Center for American Progress, an influential liberal think tank, will recommend, for example, that Obama rapidly create a National Energy Council to coordinate all policymaking related to global climate change.

The center’s influence with Obama is substantial: It was created by former Clinton White House official John D. Podesta, a co-chairman of the transition effort, and much of its staff has been swept into planning for Obama’s first 100 days in office.

The National Energy Council would be a counterpart to the White House National Economic Council that Clinton created in a 1993 executive order.

We can’t get rid of these Clinton people

A national holiday for THE ONE? Hahahahaha! Let’s celebrate the decline of USA.

Why not change the way we count the years? After all he is a God just like Jesus Christ. So it could become: Year 2008 before Obama… and year 0001 after Obama.

When Hussein O starts tearing down the Bush programs we will be back in the 90’s where no American is safe anywhere in the world, including in the U.S. I hope the democrats are ready to be held responsible, legally to the gallows, for every kidnapping and murder that takes place, and they will take place. People choose to have such short memories. More American soldiers died under Slick Willie than have died in two wars, and the U.S. citizens have been protected since 2001 by the Bush administration, like them or not.

Too bad that the news tonight pointed out that the liberal colleges have been teaching pure outright lies about history to students for several years. The liberal version is as much different from the truth as AQ would use as propaganda. Idiot liberal have soaked it up without the smallest try to find the truth which is available anywhere they choose to look. Time to defund the left wing propaganda colleges or burn them and their anti-american occupents to the ground. That would be a good first shot in the coming civil war.

Oh boy! You should all look at that cartoon video on Obama’s win. It is hilarious!


so, can we deport 67,000,000 traitors? will the country wake up when rights start disappearing? will they wake up before we lose the ability to fight?

Maybe the extreme lefties can move to Or or Wa and get some free assisted suicide with cremation. That way the ashes can be mixed with horse/cow manure and become of some use as fertilizer. Just suggesting a way for a democrat to serve some purpose on earth by fertilizing it.

I cannot believe what I am hearing.. You are the same group of people that booed at McCains concession speech… The Palin prescribed “real Americans.” How can any of you believe this when you had a conservative President for the last 8 years that completely flipped this country upside down? The



you have it all wrong, they can be our new renewable energy source… and since some dumbshits offshored our farming, they can also be SOYLENT GREEN!!

I hope y’all voted if you’re complaining like this. Part of being “the greatest democracy in the world” is accepting the mandate of the election, regardless if you like it or not.

Come to think of it, Obama really hasn’t done anything wrong yet. When he does, that’s the time you tigers should come a-pouncin’.

I don’t know about you but I will keep my freedom, I will keep my money and I will keep my guns; you keep The Change.

haha…after the last 8 years I am loving this…absolutely LOVING it!

Julie S,

I beleive that you are one the 66% ignorant women who voted for THE ONE. I pity women like you. You got fooled, babe! You got screwed!

I think this is just another racist blogger site. I expect to see more of these in the next four years. Obama won simply because he had a better program format than McCain whose republican strategists followed the books rather than the times.
Better get used to CHANGE guys…
It will help you in your mini worlds.

Describe him anything you wanna describe him. That is entirely up to you. But I know one thing for sure; he will will be better than the disaster of the past 8 years. How could anybody thought of replacing George Failure Bush with high tempered reckless and erratic guy whose glories lie deep in in the past?

Hmmmm, well we should take it all the way I believe we should change the name of the United states to Obamastan as soon as possible. Adopt the Sharia code and immedietly throw capitalism out the window. Oh hold on never mind I live in reality un like the writer of this article and have the common sense to know that even if Obama is cool and even if there is a cult of personality that I know there are several million people that voted for him and that are excited bout being american which is more than i can say about George W. Bush, and he may not cure cancer, solve global warming or keep your cocoa crispies from getting soggy in the morning I am SURE he will do a fine job as OUR PRESIDENT and that if he can keep the momentum going maybe together we can make this a better country and world with or with out the bitter loosers you fool all are and by the way at least under the CLINTON ADMINISTRATION we wern’t billions of dollars in dept, we had respect in the world community (which is important because with 7 billion people a world economy is inevitable), we are prolly still in danger of a terrorist threat because as history has repeated time and ime a gain nations come nations go hope fully we last a long time and in that time represent what is good fair just loving patient kind bearing no record of wrong doing an all those other Christ like attributes that prolly all of you people claim to represent while building you kingdom and seeking your crown here on earth. Just an opservation / Call to truth uyp for the challenge?

OMG, all the leftist moonbats are out here: Anonymoose, Julie S., June Flowers, Yaw Kusi, Datruth.

Told you so. You let one in, they come rushing like rats. What’s the matter with you idiots, did you ran out of subjects on your stupid leftist’s blogs, or what? Now you are left silent and are waiting for THE ONE to part the Read Sea? You are hopeless nut cases! Go play somewhere else. You are polluting this blog with your ill-smelling presence.

“We tend to idealize tolerance, then wonder why we find ourselves infested with losers and nut cases”

Yes we have had a conservative President for 8 years, but it is not conservative ideas that has caused such a political split within our country. The main reason that the Bush Administration is such a villain is simply the war in Iraq. To my way of thinking, if you take all the issues wrap them up and shake them out, it was Iraq that was at the heart of the election loss and “flipped this country upside down”.

Obama did not get a mandate, it was 52% to 48%. The problem that we are going to face lies with the imbalance of power within congress. When a majority of congress is liberal, making it almost filibuster proof, and the President is also liberal, this greatly diminishes the American democratic process. What has made us strong is the checks and balances within the government to keep one party from ramming home their political agenda. The same would be true if there were an overwhelming conservative majority in congress with a conservative President.

When you say, “You are the same group of people that booed at McCains concession speech”, I think you might be talking about the wrong people here. His concession was given with class, just like many of the other things he has done and just like the man himself.

i am sick and tired of the super christies that want to take away abortion and ban stem cell research in the name of a fable called jesus..go big o

Dear Craig,let me remind you that to be liberal is to be enlightened. Above all I am a 32 year old guy with 85K job. I don’t need state help for anything. I just believe this nation would be better off with Obama at this period in time. We need a less reckless, non-hot tampered, calm and open minded man to lead the world. And we got that in Obama, not McFail.

Oupsss… another moonbat called Steve.

You are so screwed-up. On one hand you want to have the right to kill babies, on the other one you want cell research to save lives. Boy you leftists drives me crazy!

Yaw Kusi,

Sure, sure! Boy are you in for a deception!

I see some comentators here are not for the holiday when Obama takes the oath of office these people are right and wrong.
Right because they seem to be very hardworking individuals which this country needs and wrong because they are crying foul for no reason at all. Someone is asking for a National holiday and this holiday is not granted yet and in case it is done I am a hardworking guy who does not care for a holiday unless my work is done.
“take away abortion ”
This is another topic which is taking shape and I find some caring individuals for and against it then I need to comment too
My comments are Abortion is homicide then why do governments and individuals allow it to happen?
The Government has no say in the matter at all because it is the wrong doing of two individuals who break all norms of decency and indulge in something which is derogatory to the sacred institution of marriage and then the result is not acceptable to both the individuals involved in the not so sacred act further let us not fot forget even the families do not support welcoming this new individual 🙂
The families should feel proud of their young daughter or their son’s hard earned effort and even give her or him a reward because they proved they are not gay :).
Pure untainted Hypocrisy nothing more nothing less
What hypocrisy is this?
Nakedness, shamelesness, immodesty is considered as cool , sexy and hot and then without inhibitions a deed is done and the result of that is a burden so chop it off. Killers!

So Left and Right both are responsible and let us not cry unfair let us first correct our ways before calling ourselves the messiahs of some ill gotten ideas and look at the root of the problem rather then giving flaky solutions and criticizing the Left and Right.
Criticism is very easy and we all have time to show off our writing skills but none of us are man or woman enough to sit and think how can this problem be uprooted.
Look at the leaders whom we face who want to lead us.
Are they not responsible every now and then one of them gives a press report with a pretentious look of remorse and a forgiving wife tagging along. Am I right?

Not to forget a mother who seems to be down to earth very ethical and who seems to show she is a pillar of principles and values and ina very important position of governance is not having time to educate her daughter the limits she can go to in a relationship. Yet unabashed and feeling proud of her piety is opposing abortion. What rubbish is this and the very same people who are commenting and criticizing here are showing the wholesome support to such individuals.
What is this?
My friend’s “charity begins at home” and their is just no point in criticizing let us be constructive and stop blaming left and right and focus on how and what can we do to uproot these social evils.

republicans act like we haven’t just been through 8 year of the WORST presidency in american history. I can’t wait for Obama to give us back our civil liberties the Bush administration has taken away … and the religious right can move to Iran if they so hate the democracy they live in. Since they seem to enjoy facism so dearly. Don’t hate … we finally elected ourselves a good one … its been 8 years coming.

Are you all delusional?? You are the ones who voted for Bush TWICE after he proved the first time he was determined to destroy this country- and he has. Now THAT was one of the most absurd waves of self deception ever to sweep through modern civilization. It was stunning how many people out there were in such deep denial. Now we finally have a president who might change things, make us proud to be Americans again, make the world stop hating us, and you are whining about people celebrating? I can’t believe how many people are still living in alternate universes out there. And if Obama can’t fix every single thing that Bush has decimated (and no human could) in one term then it will be “oh, he was an empty suit who had nothing to back up his promises.” He promised change, and he said that it took 8 years to get into this mess and it won’t be able to be fixed overnight- he never promised it could. If any of you people had any common sense or cared a damn for this country then the current “president” would have been impeached long ago. So after voting him in a second time and the damage that has been done to our country and the boost that has been given to terrorism, i think you should keep your big mouths shut and give this guy a chance- he certainly could not do worse than the bozo we have in office right now- and it says a lot that Bush is part of the reason that Obama won by such a landslide. But you all just sit in your denial and bitterness and hating- like he said, he will still be your president too, which is more than Bush ever was for any of us.


Alllllrightyyy then.

Somebody left the basement door unlocked again.

It wasn’t me.

By my count we have eight new Mobies.

With all the places on the Net to spread their hate and ignorance, they chose FA.

How charming.

We’re gonna need some roach stompin’ shoes and a bonus sized can of Raid to clean out this batch.

You wish I was! Anyway if you hate democracy this much why don’t you consider relocating to Mecca in Saudi Arabia? Over there Religious fundamentalism is at the highest and you wouldn’t have to worry about the outcome of an election because there isn’t any.

I absolutely LOVE when people claim Bush’s 8yrs are the worst in American history. I’m not a big fan of GWB’s, but I respect the good he’s done. He took office in a recession (ironically like Obama), and he used tax cuts to end it. Then America was attacked on 911 (say it w me Obama fans, “It happened on his watch” ’cause everyone who didn’t vote for Obama’s gonna be saying it a lot). He inherited a war w Al Queda that had started years earlier. He inherited a simmering war w Saddam Hussein that had to be resolved one way or the other. He was faced with insane partisan opposition from his first day, and other than after 911 he was never very popular=never really capable of a lot via legislation etc.

The Bush years were not the worst in American history. They had their ups and downs (bigtime), but the President Obama will face them too-and more. Where will his support go when Pres Obama faces them and actually makes real decisions-decisions (to quote Rahm Emanuel) between worse and worst?

Delusional is a good descriptive for any who voted for Obama. It is a good thing that in 2012 this nightmare will be over.

An Inquirer staff reporter who once interviewed him called him an ’empty suit’. Well, if the suit fits…

Scott, Appreciating the amount of study you have done over the past 8 years, knowing that as a Democrat you have always been uniquely fair, thoughtful and extremely knowledgible, realizing now that you aren’t going to penetrate the lost children of I hate George Bushville. They have been waiting for their cotton candy and rainbows for eight years, they think they are actually going to get it now.

Anyway, I always love reading your thoughts, they are never wasted.

“An Inquirer staff reporter who once interviewed him called him an ‘empty suit’. Well, if the suit fits…”. But remember this empty ‘suit’ guy won all the three debates with your full suite McCain. So does that not reassure you that he is at least better than McCain?

Thanks Missy. question: where can they get their cotton candy if there’s no more sugar? There’s no more money imo. Obama can talk about taxing the rich and giving to the middle class all he wants, but if he taxes the top 5-10% of Americans, he still won’t have enough money to make his campaign promises come true. Additionally, a nation just doesn’t get out of a recession (particularly a recession rooted in financial institution collapse) by taxing the people and entities that do the most investing. Obama’s got a very good and skilled economic team, and I give him credit for that, but my bet is that the reason he’s hitting executive orders as his first target when taking office is because that’s all he can do. He can tell dems on The Hill to do all kinds of things in his SOTU, and he can make all the campaign promises he wants, but there’s no money to do em. Once he tells Congress to do em, he’ll wipe his hands of the deal, blame Bush (just as Republicans blamed Clinton in 2001), and that will be that. From that failure point on (timeline I’m guessing puts that mid/late summer 09), Obama’s admin will take actions that are his, and he’ll face scenarios that are HIS.

Democrats have a history from the past 10 or so years of making promises, getting power, making a list of excuses, doing some finger-pointing, and then selling sizzle to get re-elected. Herein lies the catch22: the “it’s Bush’s fault” excuse is already super-thin, and will increasingly get less supportive. With absolute power, Obama and the Democrats will not be as able to point fingers etc for their campaign lies. That’s a long list too.

In his dem nom acceptance speech alone, Obama made almost 30 promises-most of which require money, and there just isn’t gonna be money to do em.
No cotton candy=no love for those who promised it…especially when the excuses wear thin, and there’s no Bush/Republican scapegoating for distraction from accountability.

Oh the sadistic glee of watching Dems realize what they’ve done.

Well to all of you out there,
You have to undestand that what is done is done and there is no turning back Now, I myself Don’t belive a word that comes out of any one running for President,
They all lie to all of us to get in there and then all hell breaks out. As for Obama being in there hang on we are all in trouble. Even the one’s that placed him in there to Run our Country!!!
Steve you talk about abortion’s and Stem Cell research and a Fable called Jesus. they are killing when they do this no matter how you look at it, IT MURDER!!!! And God help you for talking about his Son that way. You need to read the Bible. MAybe all out there should read the Bible then you will all know what is in store for us.
Yaw Kusi you say you have a job that pays you 85K and you don’t need state help, Well you sound like one of those people that feel your job is non replaceable, Well Hang on you could be at the food stamp office any day needing help from the state you live in, it happens to the best of us all the time. Check out Home many people have lost there jobs in just he past six Months.
Most Amercian people are like sheep they are told about all these changes that are going to happen and they just stay one step behide there leader.
My self I will keep God in my heart and I will follow him, No chip will be placed in My body Good luck to you all and My God be with you.

From Yaw Kusi, “Dear Craig,let me remind you that to be liberal is to be enlightened. Above all I am a 32 year old guy with 85K job. I don’t need state help for anything. I just believe this nation would be better off with Obama at this period in time. We need a less reckless, non-hot tampered, calm and open minded man to lead the world. And we got that in Obama, not McFail.”

I read here regularly but typically do not read the comments too often.

Today as I read, I saw this comment by Yaw Kusi…

Now forgive me if it has already been addressed, but if not, I could not resist. : )

You said and I quote: “non-hot tampered” and I dare say that if ever a candidate has been tampered with, it has been the teleprompter sock-puppet you chose to vote for.

I do suppose you meant “tempered” but I fail to see how anyone can count Obama to be the cool cuke everyone has projected him to be. I see him flaring just under the surface. And wonder what will happen after he is sworn in and that flare rises.

Really it is a matter of prayer now that he recognizes the pitfalls of arrogance and becomes more truly self-assured by a right humility, especially in light of the overwhelming tasks ahead for his presidency.

That’s it moonbats, gloat, lie, and display your mental illness all you want. We’ll be laughing at you when the O proves himself to be another Carter and we take back the White House and Congress as a result. Obama winning has energized the Conservative base. We’ll Be Back!

As for Bush, yes how dare he protect us for 8 years–something Clinton failed to do. How dare he have an unemployment rate lower than under Clinton while reducing taxes instead of raising them–again like Clinton. All this in spite of 9/11 which was Clinton’s fault entirely. Yes, how dare he try to stop the Dems from looting FM/FM. Yeah, Bush was so horrible. (roll eyes)

Thanks to all the wise comments that I have read on this page. I have not fully supported every that Bush has done the last 8 years especially regarding the war in Iraq, but I cannot understand the unadulterated, unmitigated, irrational hatred coming from his adversaries. These have truly been eight years of ups and downs, economic good times and bad times. I will be coming often to this blog to read comments tempered by wisdom and fairness.

Obama’s lack of relevant experience and the now unchecked onesided Congress is making me very nervous for the coming years. They all seem determined to force an economic system on us that many of us know to have been proven a failure repeatedly in history. But I have hope in the fact that 57 million of us used our brains and are all still here to get each other through them.

I think our biggest mistake over the past 8 years is allowing ourselves to be bullied and to keep what we felt was our unpopular opinions to ourselves. Let that be no more…

Yaw Kusi: Who told you Obama won all three debates? The “news” media!

And that’s the same “news” media which is now admitting by dribs and drabs that they were on Obama’s side all along.

Persons who possess the faculty of independent thinking were not so quick to say Obama won all three debates. Especially the last one.

You should be concerned about the blind cult worship of your new hero. Your judgement has become impaired by the Kool Aid you are drinking.

It’s also so interesting to me that all these people do not realize that what they have been led to believe is CHANGE is not significantly different than Jimmy Carter’s platform or any other Democrat’s platform since. Just with an American Idol-like frontman. So gullible.
