I can NEVER understand when someone makes a statement just because YOU didn't hear it, you claim it did NOT happen and challenge the poster to provide proof.

And WE are called the ignorant and uneducated!

Barbara Walters admits ‘we’ thought Obama was ‘the next messiah’

"Barbara Walters admitted on a broadcast appearance with Piers Morgan that maybe Christmas wasn’t the time to say it, but it’s true – the media regarded President Obama as the “next messiah” because of his promises and policies."

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news...ma-was-next-m/

"
Terrorist, Superman, feminist, messiah: Barack Obama's life as a cover star

"During his eight-year tenure, the press presented Obama as feminist, communist, fashion model, Jew, the messiah, Superman, George Washington, President Franklin Roosevelt, Julius Caesar, Muslim terrorist and even the Hindu deity Lord Shiva. This bizarre kaleidoscope of characterisations reflected a sense of confusion about what Obama stood for and the impossible scope of expectations heaped upon him."

https://www.theguardian.com/artandde...s-a-cover-star

"Obama, a ‘special ‘child, left to create his own internal image of ‘father’, and related meanings of strength, protection, leadership, etc.” Also, “Perseus had help from the gods. Does it not feel as if some special hand is guiding Obama on his journey"

"Evan Thomas called Obama “sort of God,” according to the Media Research Center. “We’re not just parochial, we’re not just chauvinistic, we’re not just provincial,” Thomas told MSNBC host Chris Matthews. (Thomas was talking about the Middle East, not defending his cocktail-circuit friends.) “We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.” Ever the powerhouse intellectual, Matthews responded, “Yeah.”

"Politiken, a leading Danish newspaper, proclaimed to the world that Obama is far greater than Jesus Christ"

"Michelle Obama, appears to have remained a stalwart disciple to the last, bitter end. “We have an amazing story to tell,” the first lady said as recently as April 2012, according to The Weekly Standard. “This president has brought us out of the dark and into the light."

Quick Enough (up above): What others have called Obama doesn't really count, does it. He's never called himself a Messiah which isn't true of Trump and his "Only I can fix the country" attitude. Trump thinks he's a god who can get away with anything and not have to pay a price.

The people referring to Obama as 'messiah' were the Republicans.

Yes. Some of Obama's supporters might have been a little excessive in their praise but it was the pubs (and Trump supporters) who kept harping on (and are still at it) the "Messiah" label. And these are the same people who believe that that Trump has never told a lie.

It looks like ANYBODY who supports ANY politician is NOW a "cultist" according to you.

I guess that would make YOU a pelosi "cultist" and a" shumer "cultist", hillary '"cultist", etc. and EVERY politician YOU have voted for!

LOL, the only ones who called Obama "messiah" were Conservatives. Now there have been many instances of The cult who said Trump was appointed by God himself. Now who is the cultist?


And as for the rest of your ramblings, grow up dude.

It's Not Just the President* Who Ought to Be Sweating Today
Esquire Charles P. Pierce,Esquire Fri, Sep 14 2:44 PM EDT

From Esquire

Before the Paul Manafort's Destiny Party really gets rolling-Vodka and ostrich meat for everyone!-let's pause for a moment and consider Vice President Mike Pence. The Choirboy (pace Doghouse Riley) was going nowhere in the winter of 2016.

I really wish Mike Pence was involved in the Russia scandal, I hate to see this guy became President.

But Obama, Obama, Hillary, Obama, Hillary. Obama, Hillary. Oh, and by the way, Obama, Hillary, Obama, Hillary, Obama.

There, I summed up the majority of your posts here. No need for anyone to read anything else you post now, as every post of yours pretty much comes down to that, no matter what the topic is.

And you have plenty of company here on C-D who also fit into this category.

Depends on what can be proved about what he knew about Flynn's actions and what he did about what he knew.

Interesting times indeed.
