Skip to comments.Film Biographer in Awe of Obama
Posted on 03/09/2012 10:09:35 PM PST by John Semmens
Davis Guggenheim's recently completed film biography presents an unstintingly glowing portrayal of President Barack Obama. There is, to quote Guggenheim, no downside to this man save the enmity of his enemies.
Only one other person in the history of the world has led a comparably exemplary life, Guggenheim asserted. Jesus healed the sick. Obama gave us healthcare. Jesus fed the multitudes. Obama has put more people on food stamps than any other president. The parallels between the two men's great works are uncanny.
Guggenheim expressed some anxiety that like Jesus, Obama may be crucified for his efforts. Every day, right-wing fanatics stir up hatred of the President. Just as Jesus was denied mercy by mobs outside of Pilate's palace, talk radio agitators like Rush Limbaugh urge voters to deny Obama a second term. The very idea that we could be repeating mistakes made 2000 years ago sends shivers up my spine.
if you missed any of this week's other semi-news posts you can find them at...
I heard a clip of an interview with this guy (the English host on TV), and it was hard to believe. “Obama’s only fault is that he has no faults”.
Jesus upset banksters.
Video of Piers interview with this guy. Had the quote off a bit, but the same idea. As you posted a few months ago John - satire is dead with this administration!
Jesus walked on water, 0bama lowers sea levels. It’s amazing!
John, do you ever worry that the Dems read your column as a resource for good (but bad) ideas?
Nice column, as usual.
Obama’s Leni Riefenstahl worships at the altar of the current version of Evil Incarnate,
Matthew 24:5 “For many will come in my name, saying, I am Christ, and will mislead many.”
Matthew 24:11 “And many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many.”
Such mental illness in this country. It is a shame what public schools and media do to warp the reality of children and adults. it is evil.
But the crease in his pants...wow!
Good one, John
I almost threw up in my mouth reading this. Obama is a piece of shit.
John, its nearly impossible to decipher your satire from reality.
The Left parodies itself so much, it makes your job hard.
Uuuuuhhh, that’s on his good days...:))
John , you got me with this one.. maybe it’s not SATYRICAL ENOUGH... (which is a VERY scary thought)..
and there it is...
This guy desperately needs to get a life.
Thanks for the laugh John.
When even an arch-lib like Morgan scoffs at this guys vomit-inducing piece of artistic fellatio, you know somethings wrong with this twerp Guggenheim.
What Guggenheim is saying is that his documentary “Waiting for Superman” was BS from his point of view. He went all over touting the film, but in the end he really didn’t mean it. He couldn’t think of any failures of the Obama administration, despite the fact he made a documentary about one of Obama’s biggest. This guy just proved he is not a stand up guy.
This should be good...
Jesus healed the sick. Obama gave us healthcare. Jesus fed the multitudes. Obama has put more people on food stamps than any other president. The parallels between the two men's great works are uncanny.Heh.. I'm just glad I wasn't sippin' a bev' while reading this. Thanks John Semmens.
True...but his white Marxist family influenced his belief system more than the absent Kenyan father.
The Kenyan's major contribution was pigment.
Nice touch John ;-)
For the last three years, the global definition of “in Awe” has in practice meant BUTT KISSING.
(Mods sorry, if that’s too honest please remove)
The brainwashing rivals Soviet Russia.
In fact, we are becoming more like the USSR every day.
With the single exception, our government seems obsessively determined to make America ... weaker.
Good one. Thanks for the chuckle, and the ping.
If I recall my Black Studies well, don’t Blacks believe that both Jesus and Obama are Black?
And both preached their ministry for about 3-4 years, and traveled to many locations doing such, and talked in parables, and came not to destroy their background but to fulfill it, and won the “Prince of Peace” honor?
This Guggenheim cat is a bigger kneepadder than Arthur Schlesinger was for the Kennedys
That’s also pretty frequent with this administration.
Nice one, John.
That is precious.
Very well done!
(or Newt, or Rick, or an old pair of socks even!)
What I found fascinating about Obama and his “Christianity” is that he misuses scripture like Satan did. When he made the “brothers keeper” gaffe I was amazed that he continued (and continues) to run with it.
Does he realize he’s using Cain’s words to God when asked about Abel’s whereabouts and Cain says, “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
As a single gaffe, this would be bad enough. But using “we are our brother’s and sister’s keeper” as a campaign meme is an insult to Christians.
I’ve had several people, out of the blue, both when I lived in Seattle and here in Kentucky, ask me if I thought Obama was the beast in Revelation. I tell them all that he is either a complete fraud, and will go down hard, or he is the beast and it will take God to fix it, and Obama will go down even harder.
