Savior Obama?

Where are all of the Obama worshipers now?

Wasn’t it just like 3 months ago that he was an untouchable god? If you said you didn’t like something that Obama said, you were showered with hatred. I took a lot of abuse from Obama worshipers during the campaign. It wasn’t even good fact-based abuse, either. It was emotional, crazed groupie abuse. “Dude, how can you not like Pink Floyd?” kind of abuse.

Now all of a sudden, his policies don’t look so smart anymore. And guess what… I can’t find any of his worshipers anymore.

I literally turned on MSNBC (also known as “the Obama makes my leg tingle” station during the campaign) last night, and I’ll be darned if they weren’t talking about how Obama wasn’t quite so impressive after all. MSNBC.

So what happened?

Well, whatever the mob mentality that created the “Savior Obama” thing… it just met a much bigger force – the fickleness of Americans.

Sorry bud, but you’re gonna have to deliver on your 10,000 stupid campaign promises or you’re gonna be unemployed in 4 years.

    I think it’s impossible for any politician to keep their campaign promises. If they ran on a platform of crap they could actually get done, no one would ever get elected. Democrat or republican.

    Hitler pretty much did everything he said he’d do in his book….

    That’s true – I mean look at all the great things he did for his country. You’ve totally changed my mind.

    I, for one, am no worshipper of President Obama. I’m a *supporter* of him.

    President Obama is NO “savior”. He is, however, a man and a real man in his position takes responsibility for things that happen under his watch. Take, for example, an article in the WSJ today:
    Obama Accepts Blame for AIG Bonuses
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123742582093579655.html?mod=article-outset-box

    Is he perfect? No. Is he the “other” Son of God? No. Will he fix ALL of our problems? No.

    These are all things his “worshippers” and greatest critics have been foaming at the mouth about for months now. None of them will ever be true because they’re mentioned only as inflammatory comments, not truthful statements. After all, the same false statements can be applied to ANY president and the result is the same.

    What our nation needs is a man, or woman, who will be a leader at all times, especially when it’s not convenient to be one. One of the many responsibilities of being a leader is taking responsibility. Blaming former administrations, the other party, etc. is always a cop out from doing this.Today’s article in the WSJ is at the very least encouraging …

    and I didn’t pretend that I was reading scripture. : )

    I’m glad that at least it’s obvious to you (as a proud liberal) that many of your lesser informed (dumb) party members exhibited irrational exuberance during the campaign. And yes, I’m sick of the blame game in Washington. Just fix it already!

    Yes, Incredipete, it’s very obvious to me. The blame game has to stop. I predict the next thing BOTH parties will do is comIncredipete for being the *angrier* party over the whole AIG fiasco. They’re both going to try and out do the other by strutting around with “anger” and “disgust” about the whole situation. This acting and grandstanding will only be for the sake of scoring political points, nothing more. After all, the damage is done. If they were perceptive enough, effective leaders thinking ahead, they would have seen this coming. Day late, dollar short.

    Obama didn’t just tolerate the adoration and worship – he craved it, focused on it, had his troops bolster it with pretentious pillars and temples at his various speeches. The only problem with wanting to be a messiah is that people actually, over time anyway, expect you to be one. This guy has an especially big gap between promise and delivery, however, because he is not only arrogant, but also ignorant, inexperienced, dishonest, a Chicago machine politician, and someone around the same point on the ideology scale as…Lenin? Trotsky? Mao? This guy looks like Carter on steroids.
