    The night we waved goodbye to America... our last best hope on Earth

    Anyone would think we had just elected a hip, skinny and youthful replacement for God, with a plan to modernise Heaven and Hell – or that at the very least John Lennon had come back from the dead.

    The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.

    I really don’t see how the Obama devotees can ever in future mock the Moonies, the Scientologists or people who claim to have been abducted in flying saucers. This is a cult like the one which grew up around Princess Diana, bereft of reason and hostile to facts.

    From the OP's cited article:
    If you can believe that this undistinguished and conventionally Left-wing machine politician is a sort of secular saviour, then you can believe anything. He plainly doesn’t believe it himself. His cliche-stuffed, PC clunker of an acceptance speech suffered badly from nerves. It was what you would expect from someone who knew he’d promised too much and that from now on the easy bit was over.
    This was written post election in '08, but you would think it was today. <clue>

    Supporting a president does not signify a cult, not unless Bush supporters were cult members as well. Sure, I would have liked to have called Bush supporters cult members, but I knew it was false and wouldn't say such things.

    To be honest, I think most people who voted for Obama were pretty much voting for anything but Mr. Etch-a-sketch, anything but the guy who knows nothing about the priorities of "little people".
    Sorry--but I do not accept the idea that being intolerant of intolerance is THE SAME THING as being intolerant of anything else.

    Thanks for not calling me a cult member as I was/am a Bush supporter. I disagree about your assessment of the little people though. Just because someone believes in trickle economics or Reganomics does not mean they know nothing of the little people. It is a proven theory. If growing an economy is against the little people then I am all messed up in my thinking.Oh and where does the etch-a-sketch thing come from somehow I am completely clueless on that?

    He ran for the "little people" who actually want a job. Obama, who has already presided over record levels of welfare, food stamps and poverty, ran for the entitlement class, the folks who believe Santa Claus comes every day of the year. And he won on that basis. I just wonder where Kizz and the rest of the liberals here think the money to fund $1 trillion dollar deficits as far as the eye can see is going to come from.

    Hint: It isn't coming from the Magic $#@!.

    Romney was known as Mr. Etch-a-sketch--he'd constantly change his positions. Romney knows the rich life, he doesn't know the priorities or ways of living that poor people go through.

    It doesn't come from cutting 7 trillion out of revenue streams, that's for sure. Romney's plan made no sense mathematically.

    7 billion is a drop in the bucket of the ObamaDeficits, not that it was going to go that way at all. Another one of your fictions.

    And BTW, we haven't seen any of the kind of nutty person-worship around Bush the like of the ObamaWorship. Get real.
