    Yes, it's perfectly OK for Obama to be "the One".


    Messianic rhetoric infuses Obama rallies


    Barbara Walters admits ‘we’ thought Obama was ‘the next messiah’

    Obama: ‘You cannot sit back and wait for a savior’

    From this time last year:

    • Like when Newsweek editor Evan Thomas was doing when he declared on MSNBC's "Hardball" to host Chris Matthews (who notoriously once said that he felt a “thrill up his leg” after saying "This is bigger than Kennedy. ... This is the New Testament," while covering then-Senator Barack Obama): "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God." Sort of God.


    • And when Ezra Klein gushed about Obama in The American Prospect that,

      "He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh, over color, over despair. The other great leaders I’ve heard guide us towards a better politics, but Obama is, at his best, able to call us back to our highest selves, to the place where America exists as a glittering ideal, and where we, its honored inhabitants, seem capable of achieving it, and thus of sharing in its meaning and transcendence.


    • And of course there's when Mark Morford, columnist and culture critic for the San Francisco Chronicle and SFGate.com, proclaimed that Obama "isn’t really one of us" and how

      "many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul."


    • Or Florida A&M professor Barbara A. Thompson, who wrote The Gospel According to Apostle Barack: In Search of a More Perfect Political Union as "Heaven Here on Earth."


    • Or how in a September, 2008 opinion essay in the Smith College Sophian titled "I Will Follow Him: Obama As My Personal Jesus," associate editor Maggie Mertens proclaimed "Obama is my Jesus." She went on to say
      While you may be overtly religious and find this to be idol-worshipping, or may be overtly politically correct and just know that everything in that sentence could be found offensive, I'm afraid it's true anyway.

      She went on to say she was in the "middle of a bleak, hopeless period of my life" but then
      Then I found my miracle. Stumbling through my hopeless world, afraid to turn to anyone with my political questions of morality, my concerns about the afterlife of the country I called home, a voice spoke to me. Barack Obama bore to me his testimony...

      She continued writing about how "I came to Jesus/Obama" and concluded
      I've officially been saved, and soon, whether they like it or not, the rest of the country will be too. I will follow him, all the way to the White House, and I'll be standing there in our nation's capital in January 2009, when Barack Obama is inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States of America. In the name of Obama, Amen.


    • Or how on November 25th, 2012 at the Soul Train Awards program, televised worldwide on the BET network, Jamie Foxx whipped up the large crowd attending the event to a hand-waving, jumping-up-and-down frenzy by shouting, "First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama! Barack Obama!"



    • Or how Denmark's oldest largest newspaper Politiken on December 28, 2009 ran an editorial titled "Obama Greater Than Jesus: The U.S. president - the practical saviour of our times" It said, "He comes from humble beginnings and defends the weak and vulnerable, because he can identify himself with their conditions. And no we are not thinking of Jesus Christ, whose birthday has just been celebrated - but rather the President of the United States Barack Hussein Obama."

      The newspaper stated that if a comparison were to be made between Jesus and Obama, "it would, of course, inevitably be to Obama's advantage." And this: "Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus - if we have to play that absurd Christmas game."


    • Or how Nation of Islam's Louis Farrahkan proclaimed Obama was the Messiah

      "You are the instruments that God is going to use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn't care anything about. That's a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking."


    • And finally let's not forget Barbara Walters



    The fact is, the above exemplified the attitude that a substantial portion of his supporters believed. As Michelle Obama put it, "We have an amazing story to tell. This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light" (Matthew 4:16; cf. Micah 7:8)

    And of course Obama himself intoned that the earth itself was reacting positively to his merely winning the Democrat Party's nomination (that "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.") so profound was his presence.

    That’s what The Family told him. He is not kidding and neither are they. Jesus and Trump are one.

    AFAIK, Obama never accepted the moniker or called direct attention to it himself. It is one thing to have people praise you like that and not rebuff them. Quite another to accept it, relish it, and tell other people about it and how wonderful it is.

    No - that was pretty weird too, and I thought he should have made some comment about it being ridiculous. But he never OWNED it like Trump just did.

    And I pretty much predicted those that regard trump as their own messiah (little 'm', savior from 'the liberals') would dismiss it as a joke.

    ... just like many did the offer to buy Greenland a few days ago.

    Now you are all saying how horrible Denmark was for not treating him nice over it.

    Is that what you'll do if this is not a Joke - demand we all acknowledge he really IS the 'chosen one', the second coming?


    Jim

    ETA: Oh wow! I hadn't seen the second page with all the flashbacks to Obame. I called it 100%

    But alas (for you) Obama never actually proclaimed himself 'the chosen one'.

    Do you think Trump is the antichrist/beast described in Revelation?
