Bill Anderson blogs that Obama is just the latest of a long list of politicians who claim they can make socialism work:
It seems that every once in a while, our political classes and their media partners place the mantle of "Keeper of the Secret" upon a political figure. After he was assassinated (but not before) John F. Kennedy was given that title.
Alas, the title then fell to Jimmy Carter, but he apparently could not keep the secret, so we waited for Teddy Kennedy, but he had this little problem of not winning the nomination for president. Then it was John Jr., who had to take the New York Bar Exam at least three times before passing it but he, too, died before he could lead us to the Promised Land.
Today, Barack Obama is the official "Keeper of the Secret." Yes, Obama KNOWS how to make socialism work; he can remake the Law of Scarcity, and he can bring peace and prosperity to everyone simply by manipulating the tax code and subsidizing fascist entities like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Today's "The Messiah Has Arrived" speech in Berlin was just another example of this worshipful nonsense that the political classes foist upon people. I recently read a bumper sticker with Obama's picture on it and "Hope" written under the picture.
I'm sorry, but the idea of a politician being the source of hope is too much. And Obama as the Messiah is just plain laughable, yet we can expect to see this kind of coverage for the next year or more, since I am sure he easily will win the presidential election. The last time we saw this kind of political adulation was when the Roman emperors claimed to be gods. That will be the next step for Obama. Stay tuned.
