McCain camp gleefully mocks 'temple of Obama'
Breitbart.com ^ | August 27, 2008 | AFP Stories

Posted on 08/27/2008 12:04:29 PM PDT by IndianPrincessOK

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."

Seeing as how he has a messiah complex, most of the ordinary folks sitting in their living rooms will link this movie set to his mental delusions.

At any rate, the whole setting is classless regardless of their reasoning.

BTW, I read a headline that stated MLK was a Republican! Not sure if true but it wouldn’t surprise me.

There was a similar ‘over the top’ moment in the French Revolution. A meglomaniac leader had himself portrayed as a god atop an artificial mountain. I’ve yet to find it in google. But that was the moment that the other revulutionaries decided that he had to go.

Let him compare himself to MLK. Or better yet, to Lincoln.

That will win over how many votes in the middle?

Exactly zero.
For various reasons, that pitch will fail for every vote that will decide this election.

If you had been born in the South and grown up there in the 50’s and returned there in the early 60’s to work on civil rights, would you have been a Democrat?

I think you are probably right.

I took this from another poster in another forum “least favorite person in history”:

http://www.sciforums.com/showthread.php?t=44393

Maximillian Robespierre, maybe the most influential figure in the French Revolution. As the leading spokesman for the Jacobins, he was instrumental in creating the new constitution. He at first supported a constitutional monarchy by when the king, pretty much in house arrest, attempted to slip across the border to Austria, Robespeirre decided he needed to be executed. Later he supported the guillotining of those loyalists who were perceived as threats to the new republic.

All not to bad at that point [not according to Arthur — good grief], but it seems at some point Robespeirre began losing touch with reality, attempting to introduce a new religion in France, The Cult Of The Supreme Being, in whcih he actually appeared dressed in some toga-type outfit standing on top of a manmade mountain in the streets of Paris. He began his final descent after ordering wholesale slaughter of ‘enemies of the state’ that led to the Reign of Terror’. Any body you owed money to, or had a grudge against, or looked at you wrong, you reported them as a loyalist and it was off with their head. Fittingly, as even many of Robespierre’s fellow Jacobins began to get nervous about their own heads, they accused him of his own brand of tyranny and it was off with his head.

If that were the case, the fools should not have placed the columns in a curve ... the Lincoln Memorial columns are in a straight line. Now, when I was in college, the outside Greek theater on campus had a backdrop which was curved ...

The Obamanation's stage, as seen from the 50 yard line. Like everything else having to do with Obama, there is no substance; it's all make-believe.

It does look more like Greek theater. I don’t think they would be so obvious as to build a facade of the Lincoln. It’s supposed to suggest Washingtonian architecture.

Yep, for someone who claims to be for the “common man,” Obama’s entire campaign has been over the top. I hope his Hollywood friends and PR people keep pushing this stuff.

Gee, I wonder how many houses for the homeless could have been bought with the money used to erect the Temple of Doom!? That would make a great ad!!!And, the Dems have a problem with McCains homes bought from his father in laws hard work.......

Martin Luther King was a man who claimed to be a pastor of a church, and he was a and he was a man caught with a prostitute on the night that he died., so he was just a pretender of the faith. The Hindu monkey god is the favorite god of Obama, so they are both pretenders of the faith. Obama was to have gotten his gold plated Monkey god on the day before the convention.
