More Human Than Human.

I've known that most supporters don't really care about Barack's policies. They see only the color of his skin and, by golly, that's enough for them. When people start using words like 'Transcend' and 'Ascend', they put Obama on a demigod pedestal. Soon, it will be very obvious that his policies will not work. And people who looked to Obama as their savior will be worshiping an idol with feet of clay.

From KCET in California somewhere. The quote below summarizes what the commentator says. Play the clip though, it's worth it.

Every president to hold office has espoused some version of Americanism; the truths that we hold self-evident, even when those truths are not always in evidence. But for all their grand rhetoric and mostly good deeds, none was able to seal the deal on the trifecta of equality, plurality and socioeconomic ascendancy. Obama has. Obama is the more perfect union. He is a house united. Obama is the New Generation and the hot light of a dawn that goes way beyond clever talk of morning in America.

Quite simply, quite plainly, just by virtue his being, Obama is America. The first true American to lead our nation.

H/T to Jim Treacher. He has some more pointed commentary of his own regarding the tool named John Ridley.

  1. Wow. What a tool. I feel sorry for Pres. Obama. Such expectations only a deity could live up to. Uh-oh...
