The Obama Watch

'A New Way of Being on the Planet'

By George Neumayr on 6.10.10 @ 6:09AM

During the feverish excitement of the 2008 campaign, a columnist for the online San Francisco Chronicle, Mark Morford, took it upon himself to educate anti-Obama naysayers with "dysfunctional karmic antennae." They had been asking him: "What the hell's the big deal about Obama?"

The question looks prescient these days, but Morford's karmic antennae at the time picked up something different. Obama -- Morford had been told by "spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual)" -- was a "Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment."

The karmic antennae of Jon Kabat-Zinn, one of Oprah's favorite meditation teachers, also picked this up. Kabat-Zinn pronounced Obama America's "first mindful president."

Obama, of course, had encouraged this talk with his stump speeches about "we are the ones we have been waiting for" and his campaign slogan ending in a preposition -- "Change you can believe in."

This ludicrous rhetoric and the expectations it inspired have caught up with him, as he looks more and more hackish, dishonest, and feeble by the day -- more a lightweight than a "Lightworker," less "mindful" than mindless. Most politicians spend the bulk of their mental time figuring out how to dodge and weave through a crisis, but one would think such a fabled figure could bring a little bit more imagination and sharpness to the exercise.

My Nausea meter just registered off the chart.

Another quote from the article:

“Obama shook his head censoriously as Lauer read Hayward’s comment to him. But doesn’t Obama act like he wants his life back too? He has a put-upon air about him, as if it is outrageous that the presidency should make demands upon him beyond placing ribbons around the necks of rock stars. Obama couldn’t even suppress that air during the Lauer interview. Obama said that he was, long before the pundits noticed the crisis, “standing in the rain” talking to “fishermen” down in the Gulf a month ago.”

“Can you believe it? Obama had to talk to fishermen while pelted by rain drops. The things he has done for his country and the “planet.”

Well, whooptee doo. This guy must have played Jacks as a senior in high school.

Perhaps you are suffering from “dysfunctional karmic antennae.”

These people are truly delusional.

I can’t astrally project my consciousness to Washington to read the man’s aura, so I just don’t see anything but a dullard in this guy. A mindful president? No, an Affirmative Action president.

Have you all read the article???

Neumayr is very critical of those who awarded the Big 0 the karmic qualities.

Neumayr quotes some of them, but only to destroy their silliness.

Morford is possessed by many demons.

Oprah’s probably attracted her own demon-groupies with her New Age peddling.

Yeah, like being enslaved under a New World Order run by the UN, whose official 'religion' is islam.

Had he even talked to the BP CEO? Lauer wanted to know. No, Obama had to admit, exposing his big talk about BP as cowardly chuntering. A president known only for his words said he didn't want to talk to some "guy" who was just going to tell him what he wanted to hear. "With all due respect, that feels strange to me," Lauer replied.

Especially strange after admonishing the American people not to "jump to any conclusions" about Major Hasan's motives. Barry0 has that amazing ability to read the mind's of white non-Muslims without ever meeting them. Like Sgt. James Crowley of the Cambridge police dept.
