Skip to comments.McCain camp gleefully mocks 'temple of Obama'

Republicans, who mock Barack Obama as a self-appointed divine savior, gleefully pounced Thursday on pictures of the set for his big convention speech, which appears to resemble a temple. The Democratic presidential candidate will accept the party White House banner before a more than 70,000-strong crowd at an outdoor football stadium here late Thursday.
Pictures and an aerial film footage of the set being constructed for the speech show a curved backdrop with creamy, gray column-like structures, which could suggest Washington architecture, or a classical structure, like a Greek or Roman temple.
Republicans sent out an edition of their "Audacity Watch" email newsletter which they use to point out perceived examples of hubris by the Obama campaign, titled "The Temple of Obama."

"he will deliver his speech from an elaborate columned stage resembling a miniature Greek temple"

It’s a Lincoln Memorial/MLK reference. Tomorrow is the anniversary of MLK’s “I have a dream speech.”
It doesn’t matter, it’s still so over the top.
this article written by a liberal?
“percieved examples of hubris” when it should be “examples of hubris”
Oh, I know. But the more we try to read into his symbolism, the more we can mock him.
Barack I — Emperor of the Union of the Americas
Its a Lincoln Memorial/MLK reference. Tomorrow is the anniversary of MLKs I have a dream speech.
Oh that explains it....and Obama thinks he is reincarnated MLK??? Or just THE KING
“Indonesia Jones and the Temple of Electoral Doom”
OOOOHHHHHH good one!!!
This is both arrogant and funny at the same time! LOL.
They’re just making it too easy . . . .
The construction of this "temple" has turned Obama into a laughing stock.
Obama is setting himself up as if he were Zeus.
Anyone on site to keep an eye on this thing? I’d hate to see them have second thoughts under this onslaught of ridicule and pull it down before the speech.
What is this, an op ed?
