After watching the Democratic National Convention, one can only come to a single conclusion.
Barack Obama is Jesus.
Obama will, amongst many things, end the war in Iraq, fix the economy, build a flawless health care program, fix broken politics, cut taxes, and educate all the youth — all while blindfolded.
His wife, Michelle Obama, was one of the many singing his praises, saying, “He’ll achieve these goals the same way he always has — by bringing us together and reminding us how much we share and how alike we really are. You see, Barack doesn’t care where you’re from, or what your background is, or what party — if any — you belong to. That’s not how he sees the world.”
The DNC was filled with so much propaganda that it was almost smothering.
The thing is, I am not sure how Obama can be like Jesus after receiving multiple e-mails professing that Obama is, in fact, the opposite of the good man himself.
According to these e-mails, the “anti-christ will be a man, in his 40s, of Muslim descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a massive Christ-like appeal … the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, will destroy everything. Is it Obama?”
The last time I checked the Book of Revelations for the words Antichrist and Muslim, I found nothing.
Regardless, this attack comes across as the smear of all smears. It’s one thing to call your opponent a pig, immoral, sleazy or a crook, but to mark him as the Antichrist, one to usher in the apocalypse, seems a little too harsh, but so does painting him as the next savior and redeemer of the world.
How is anyone supposed to make a good, informed decision about whom they are going to vote for when politicians never tear down the fa?ade that seems like a pre-requisite to being a politician?
