On CNN’s Piers Morgan Live, Barbara Walters openly admitted what conservatives have known about the liberal media for a long time: they view Obama as a Messiah figure to be blindly worshiped without question:
“He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.”
Of course, the evidence of this has been clear for anyone who had eyes to see, from celebrities pledging allegiance to Barack Obama in 2008:
…to propaganda at the 2012 DNC Convention, portraying Obama as the fulfillment of prophecy:
And who could forget the “For All” campaign, with celebrities hailing Obama with their hands over their hearts?
Or the media’s constant portrayal of their “Obamessiah” with a glowing halo around his head?
Or this creepy painting of Obama as a crucified Jesus, titled “The Truth”?
A decent man would shun such cult-like adulation, but the Narcissist-in-Chief revels in it:
Meanwhile, while his newest adviser, John Podesta, laughably accuses the GOP of being “a cult worthy of Jonestown” (project much, Podesta?), using that as his justification for why the Obamessiah should rule by unconstitutional executive fiat and bypass congress completely. Of course, Obama’s loyal worshipers agree, begging him to become the benevolent dictator of their Utopian fantasies.
As Rep. Tom McClintock observes, this begs the obvious question: can our constitutional republic stand in the face of such cult-like devotion to the idea of dictatorship?
