It started during the campaign: "We are the ones we've been waiting for". The messianic allusions were everywhere. The pictures of Obama with halos, white robes and other God-like adornments littered the interwebs. We were to believe that the "O" stood for the "three O's" - omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence. He was even afraid to have the name of the true Messiah present at one of his propaganda events. But after the first seven months in office, it's obvious that the messianic thing just isn't there.
However, Mr. Obama has apparently decided to go all-in on the God thing. It began to emerge at his briefing with Jewish rabbis earlier this week. Obama stated:
"We are God's partners in matters of life and death"
Really? Now socialized healthcare is the work of the Almighty? So, Mr. President, I suppose you figured the death panels were best left to the real God, so he'd partner up with Him to make those decisions. Oh, or maybe you were mistaken and thought YOU were the Almighty, Mr. Obama. A little identity crisis, perhaps?
And yesterday, the faux Messiah decided to wax Biblical before a group of Christian leftists and demonstrate his stunning grasp of his God's word.
“There has been a lot misinformation in this debate and there are some folks out there who are frankly bearing false witness,”
In the same meeting, he continued his God delusion:
He paraphrased Genesis, saying that reform would address "what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation that we look out for one another, that I am my brother's keeper and I am my sister's keeper."
Is there any limit to the depths which this man will stoop to try to get what he wants? The degree of hubris in his behavior is simply stunning.
Perhaps he should simply try prayer. However, he may discover that sometimes God doesn't answer prayers in the way we'd like.
NOTE: Erick and I must have had the Vulcan mind-meld going remotely. He posted on this at almost precisely the same time as I did.
