Obama is a Messiah for the 21st century

Props to Jake Tapper at ABC for being brave enough to call Obama's campaign for what it really is -- a religion. Every time I see an Obama self-lauding campaign speech in which he says nothing except for how great the Obama movement is, I get chills in the same way I would if I was watching a fire and brimstone Southern Baptist stumping on a pulpit before millions of true believers. Get to someone's soul and you control their brain.

He quotes one Obama supporter who is starting to get freaked out:
Describing various encounters with Obama supporters, she writes, "Excuse me, but this sounds more like a cult than a political campaign. The language used here is the language of evangelical Christianity – the Obama volunteers speak of 'coming to Obama' in the same way born-again Christians talk about 'coming to Jesus.'

Tapper also refers to a Joe Klein piece titled "Inspiration vs. Substance":
"That is not just maddeningly vague but also disingenuous: the campaign is entirely about Obama and his ability to inspire. Rather than focusing on any specific issue or cause — other than an amorphous desire for change — the message is becoming dangerously self-referential. The Obama campaign all too often is about how wonderful the Obama campaign is. “

I've noted many times how empty Obama's rhetoric actually is. Even the NY Times is under his spell. I must say it now -- this man is dangerous.
