    Now back to the thread topic, was their a coherent point you wanted to make? Or are you unable to do that and only able to come in here to incessantly whine about others including me?
    So that's a no. Okay. Gotcha.

    You need to research the origins of the phrase. Here is an article from January 29, 2007, from the liberal Slate Magazine no less, already remarking on how the press and his fans are treating him as a Messiah:
    Is Barack Obama—junior U.S. senator from Illinois, best-selling author, Harvard Law Review editor, Men's Vogue cover model, and "exploratory" presidential candidate—the second coming of our Savior and our Redeemer, Prince of Peace and King of Kings, Jesus Christ? His press coverage suggests we can't dismiss this possibility out of hand. I therefore inaugurate the Obama Messiah Watch, which will periodically highlight gratuitously adoring biographical details that appear in newspaper, television, and magazine profiles of this otherworldly presence in our midst.
    It doesn't help when the Messiah himself refers to how the world will rejoice when he stops the rise of the oceans, etc.

Hell, Americans and Germans suffer from the same affliction!
    And I'm sure that Paris Hilton would also get a big crowd if she deigned to step foot in Canada. Celebrity worship is a worldwide phenomenon.

    First of all, I think that was a sarcastic and humorous comment on the part of the magazine. Secondly, please show where does Obama refers to these things that you've posted.

    No, they're being serious. Long after they published that piece we saw even weirder accolades and Messiah references in the liberal press. Here is a San Francisco Chronicle piece, again not from a Republican mocking Senator Obama, but from a fellow cult-member:
    Barack Obama isn't really one of us. Not in the normal way, anyway.

    This is what I find myself offering up more and more in response to the whiners and the frowners and to those with broken or sadly dysfunctional karmic antennae - or no antennae at all - to all those who just don't understand and maybe even actively recoil against all this chatter about Obama's aura and feel and MLK/JFK-like vibe.

    To them I say, all right, you want to know what it is? The appeal, the pull, the ethereal and magical thing that seems to enthrall millions of people from all over the world, that keeps opening up and firing into new channels of the culture normally completely unaffected by politics?

    No, it's not merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric. It is not fresh ideas or cool charisma or the fact that a black president will be historic and revolutionary in about a thousand different ways. It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn't have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity.

    Dismiss it all you like, but I've heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who've been intuitively blown away by Obama's presence - not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence - to say it's just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord.

    Here's where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as 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. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.

    The unusual thing is, true Lightworkers almost never appear on such a brutal, spiritually demeaning stage as national politics. This is why Obama is so rare. And this why he is so often compared to Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., to those leaders in our culture whose stirring vibrations still resonate throughout our short history
    Secondly, please show where does Obama refers to these things that you've posted.

    You never fail to impress.

    Having said that, I rarely started any thread regarding Bush, especially after every time he farted. You can say I'm anti-fluff.

    It's not worth the effort. You can think what you want to think, your opinion means nothing to me. So go on, keep thinking I'm Joe Hill... I don't care.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
