Newsweek magazine editor declares Obama is “sort of God”
Newsweek magazine editor-at-large, Evan Thomas, actually said that President Obama is “sort of God” on Hardball. Wow. Did he really say that? Yes, he did.

Is anyone old enough to remember when John Lennon declared that the Beatles were “more popular than Jesus”? There was a huge uproar in this country. All across the nation their music was banned from the radio, there were huge community bonfire burnings of their albums and John’s books, and it was the lead story in national and local media outlets.
Now, someone says that President Obama IS God–sort of, and not a peep from anywhere. I’m not sayin’ that book burnings and music banning was right, cuz’ it wasn’t. It was wrong. I’m just sayin’ it’s a mystery to me how and when our moral compasses got broken!!! Barack Obama isn’t God anymore than The Beatles were more popular than Jesus. I know it was just a figure of speech, but the scary part to me is that the media kinda sorta DOES think of President Obama as our “savior” and so do a lot of regular folks out there and of course, he’s not. We’re setting him up to fail if we think that, and the REAL God knows he’s got to succeed or America as we know it will cease to exist–My biggest fear is that it already has.
I’ve attached a link below to a great article if you care to read it. It’s Mat Rodina, a Russian columnist’s take on what’s happening in the US today. The title is “American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper.”
