Newsweek magazine editor declares Obama is “sort of God”

June 10, 2009

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.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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.”

    That’s one of the stupidest comments I think I’ve ever heard. “Sort of God?” When this pompous jackass met the Prime Minister of England for the first time, he was given a thoughtful, symbolic, historically relevant gift. The PM had taken wood from a British ship that had intercepted (and fought) the slave trade back in the early 1800s, and had the wood fashioned into a pen and pencil set for the Oval Office, for the first African American president. Thoughtful, huh? Heartfelt, huh? Know what Obama gave him? A collection of classic American Hollywood movies on DVD. Movies like ET, Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, etc…. Trivial, huh? Worthless, huh? To add insult to injury, England’s technology doesn’t even play DVDs, and even if it did, the British Prime Minister is blind in one eye, and doesn’t watch movies anyway….

    Thoughtful, huh?

    But I guess its ok, cuz the PM can always borrow the iPod that Obama gave the Queen of England when he met her…the one with all his speeches on it…

    Yes, soooooooo like God…..

    ostella–

    I remember reading that and thinking his “handlers” had a lot to learn. A WHOLE lot.

    I’m trying to be objective about Obama and remain positive, but it’s getting harder every day. I didn’t vote for him but I want him to be successful. Lord knows he’s got a butt load of problems to deal with. But, so far he’s scaring the hell out of me. Not just his socialist agenda, but his (so far) weak foreign stance. This country is changing at a breakneck speed and once we all catch our breaths I’m not sure we’re gonna like the changes.

    Wow, T. And here I thought you were kinda fond of us! The bad news for you is, if we start speakin’ Chinese—well, somethin’ tells me you will, too. We better ALL hope Obama does a “fine” job. The alternative ain’t pretty for any of us (I’m including “you” in the “us” T).

    For those reading this that don’t know, T-L-I-O-T-G is Canadian. (ane we still love him!)
