“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” - Barack Obama, Super Tuesday
If birds of a feather do stick together, Barack Obama is flying with a particularly loathsome flock. Is it simply that Obama needed to ingratiate himself with the Chicago political machine in order to be politically viable? Or does he really ascribe to the black nationalism and hatred of whites of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, the extremism of Father Pfleger, the anti-Americanism of William Ayers and the corruption of Tony Rezko?
With the appointment of Eric Holder to Obama’s vice presidential search committee more questions arise.
The choice of associates, past and present, doesn’t jibe very well with the hope and change theme of Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.
Who, among the appointees, friends and associates of Barack Obama will join him in lowering the level of the oceans, healing the world and making schools work? Will the Lightworker accomplish this feat himself? Is he the reincarnated Mother Teresa?
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….
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….
…we are finally truly ready for another Lightworker to step up.
Those of us who are grounded in the Holy Bible may have the discernment to recognize the rainmen, the false prophets and used car salesmen that come along, promising the fabulous new day. This past years’ evolution of Barack Obama from Chicago crony and lightweight into a new age Lightworker tells us more about the hopes of the deluded, Anyone but Bush crowd than it does about the ObamaMessiah, who for twenty years attended a church that steeped itself in hatred of our country and the white citizens in it.
So to the supporters of Barack Obama (the media and journalists as well as Democrats) he is the Second Coming of Camelot, the Anti-Bush, The Solar Hero and to the French, The Good American.
To Jesse Jackson Jr., Barack Obama’s win is of such major significance that, according to him, a new chapter should be added to the Bible.
Mythmaking usually comes after a great act of a heroic character but in these latter days, the Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermanns have gone all tingly in the legs and silly in their heads in their hopes for the presidency of Obama. They ascribe to Barack Obama the great solution to the Bush problem, Perseus, holding the head of Medussa and a reasonable man who will reach out to Iran’s leaders instead of the wrongful, militaristic, paleo policy of Bush/Israel.
The Obama campaign has been running against President Bush for the past eighteen months. Now they seek to cast John McCain as a third term of Bush. This enchants the BDS crowd, gives suckle to their creed and allows Obama to ignore McCain’s difference to Bush on the issues.
It keeps Obama in his vaunted place of glory.
What neighborhood does Barack Obama live in or does he even need shelter over his blessed head?
UPDATE: Some heart-broken Hillary supporters may see Obama as a trophy wife. The Anchoress explains why.
