Already got one. Thanks anyway.
Messiah that is. How on earth did Obama get this title?
I have been trying to find out who coined this name for him. Some suggest it is a Republican invention. Which I beg to argue. No way would we be calling him that.
Check out the cover of this weeks Metro, Silicon Valley Weekly Newspaper. (and then read the article I am attaching to the end) They are NOT by any means affiliated with anything Republican.
wow. I saw it and had to pick up a copy. Could not believe it.
Then I read the article that went along with it. Again, wow. Makes me want to write a letter to the editor. Is there even a shred of bi-partisanship at this paper?
Here’s a small highlight – then click here to read the rest.
The Republican administration in Washington turned surpluses into deficits, peace into war, prosperity into chaos. It failed to address the rising costs of food, health care and college tuition and ignored the decline of public education and the earth’s atmosphere. It let Detroit collapse, and New Orleans drown.
In short, the Republicans that America elected screwed up the country, and it’s time to take it back.
With an abysmal record to run on, the GOP has taken to questioning the patriotism of its opponents, conducting a campaign of innuendo and guilt by association. The irresponsible fearmongering and demagoguery had predictable results.
Now back to the name for “the one” –
Well, the extremely controversial Lous Farrakhan said this,
“And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking,” he concluded.
Scary. Louis Farrakhan that is. He is one scary man.
I really wonder how Obama feels being called this? He says he is a Christian and as such, he should have a real problem with this term now being assigned to him.
Anyone have any verifiable proof of where this term first came from for Obama? And the DailyKos does not count.
