Barack Obama transcends rationality.
He was the junior senator from Illinois with a mere 2 years of experience when he was elected president.
He ran on a platform of hope and change.
In four years in office, he did not deliver what he promised.
Unemployment remains painfully high and layoffs abound. GDP growth is stagnant. The federal budget is hemorrhaging a trillion dollars a year in deficits. Entitlement programs will soon be going broke at the same time another new one has been added. Religious freedom is under attack. The Middle East is unraveling. Iraq is racing toward a nuclear bomb. Europe is dying. His handling of the Benghazi affair was either incompetent or devious. There appears to be no middle ground.
And yet we re-elected this man to keep doing more of the same thing.
Half of the country voted for Mr. Obama with what seems to be a religious fervor that is disturbing.
There is a devotion to this man that seems to border on the disordered. Consider the words of college professor, Barbara A. Thompson from Florida A & M. She characterizes the president as “Apostle Barack” who was sent to created a “heaven on earth.”
She has written a book pretentiously titled, “The Gospel According to Apostle Barack: In Search of a More Perfect Political Union as ‘Heaven Here on Earth.”
I am not making this up.
She received a message in her dreams, which she describes as follows:
“Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society.
Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor.
Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of ‘heaven here on earth’ for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a ‘heaven here on earth.’ For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized.”
Interestingly, the poor and the middle class are suffering the most under Obama’s grand socialist, utopian vision.
It doesn’t matter. Devotees of the Cult of Obama aren’t thinking with their heads, they’re thinking with their hearts.
Liberalism is all about feelings anyway. The Cult of Obama is the natural progression of this way of thinking. As liberal programs continue their relentless track record of failure, true believers need a cult-like figure to help them keep the faith.
Barack Obama is the man of the moment.
