Newsweek Editor Calls Obama "Sort Of God" - Literally (Evan Thomas: "He's sort of God."

[Evan Thomas:]

"...he [Obama] has a very different job from Reagan was all about America and you [Chris Matthews] talked about it. Obama is 'we are above all that now.' We're not just parochial. We stand for something. I mean in a way, Obama's standing above the country, above the world, he's sort of God."

Sick, sick, sick, and yet Evan Thomas said on February 2, 2007 to Inside Washington that it was the MSM's job to bash the president. "...Our job is to bash the president, that's what we do."

Bull. You losers bash conservatives/Republicans, not liberals/Democrats, and especially not Obama.

That black guy? coming up with the Obama song... those kids coming out and doing that Obama military march saying "Obama, Obama, Obama" ... the talk about Obama being "The One" (among many other things)... and now this.

Stalin never had it so good.

And on top of that, Evan has the gall to say that it is "parochial" to put America first.

Obama needs to put a stop to all of this worship of him coming from so many liberals.

Problem is, is that I think he actually revels in it.

“He’s sort of God.”

I say in the media's mind, there is no sort of about it. The media worships the ground Obama walks on. Saddam Hussein did not have this level of backing by his government media.

Norman Thomas (Evan's grandfather): "The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."

They, aong with Matthews and Evan Thomas, are probably too busy happy with all of those thrills going up their legs to do anything else.

Evan Thomas adoring on his prayer rug again? Graphic testimony to the crippled emotional flotsam breaching the surface of the pond scum of leftism.

Liberals reject the Lord Jesus Christ, and so they turn to man for salvation. The Bible contains numerous passages that state explicitly that this occurs - sooner or later when the Lordship of God is rejected. Obama is their god, government is their religion and abortion is their sacrament.

Rush was right. All they were missing was their god.

It makes sense. For new-liberals (and more than a few posters on this site, unfortunately) government is their god. They expect it to feed the poor, heal the sick, and protect them from "evil" (the definition of which varies from person to person rather than any moral absolute).

He is only putting into words what well over 50% of the population believe, whether they would admit it or not.

If Obama is God, I’m an atheist.

Liberals are always looking for a human savior (other than the Lord Jesus Christ). This is definitely a mental disorder.

And Chrissy Matthews (He of the tingly leg) could only respond “uh, huh...” MSNBC is this country’s version of Pravda and they know and are proud of it.

Sure. That'll happen.

Obama already jokes about himself being God.

I believe my next 100 days will be so successful, I will be able to complete them in 72 days. And on the 73 day, I will rest.
