Oh God! Obama.

It occurred to me that, two times in as many days, I’ve alluded to the first couple’s Messiah complex.  Yesterday, I noted that Michelle and Barack are pretty sure that John 3:16 applies to their willingness to “give” Obama to the American people and, just a few hours ago I did a post in which I mentioned Obama’s reiterated belief that his mere presence will bring peace to the world.

All of which leads to the inevitable comparison with George Bush.  You see, for all that the Left was up in arms about Bush’s religious beliefs, what made him a safer President than Obama is the fact that Bush, unlike Obama, believed in a God other than himself.

    “Of all horrible religions the most horrible is the worship of the god within. Anyone who knows anybody knows how it would work; anyone who knows anyone from the Higher Thought Center knows how it does work. That Jones shall worship the god within turns out ultimately to mean that Jones shall worship Jones. Let Jones worship the sun or moon; let Jones worship cats or crocodiles, if he can find any in his street, but not the god within.”

    –G K Chesterton

    I cannot believe he thinks himself divine; I believe he thinks himself wise. I see the symptoms of a three-year old that has discovered the universe is not centered on himself. And in discovering, he tries to disprove the knowledge by creating situations wherein he is the center of the universe again.
    In three-year olds this is an important step in learning the world is not kind and that they must learn to work with others.
    In leaders, this gets people hurt.
    The nation will now get the skinned knees and bloody nose that demonstrate the world’s indifference to someone’s belief in their place at the universe’s focus.
    I pray we have the strength to stand up, brush off our hands, dry our tears, and return to the world, having learned our place.
    And that he will not have done irreparable harm.

    Intelligent, not wise, Dave. He is too smart to need wisdom or experience, which is what wisdom is primarily born of.

    Exactly; he is the example for the ancient lesson.
    “A fool thinks himself wise; a wise man knows how great a fool he is.”

    “If it can be summed up in a trite phrase, it will be discarded by the masses as a passing fancy. Write it in a bound treatise and with notes; then they will understand the simple lesson that should have been taught in three words – love thy neighbor.”

    To borrow from the Sam Cooke song “Wonderful World”, Obama doesn’t know much about history, doesn’t know much about science books…or economics or much of anything about his own country.

    He doesn’t have to…he is an island of wisdom and sanity in a sea of fools and he’s going to fix the world and make it right because nobody in the 10,000 years of recorded human history figured it out…whereas he and his fawning acolytes have.

    Great one, Danny!

    In Obama’s version, it finishes like this:
    “But I do know that I love me,
    And I know you surely want to be,
    In this wonderful world based on me.”
