Video: “We thought he was going to be … the next Messiah”

posted at 10:01 am on December 18, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Who has been hurt by Barack Obama’s plummeting poll numbers? The President himself, of course, and his administration, and incumbent Democrats running for re-election and away from the “you can keep your plan” promise. However, don’t forget the mainstream media, who sent dozens of reporters to Wasilla, Alaska to investigate the supposedly unprepared governor as a Vice Presidential candidate but couldn’t be bothered to look into the Chicago Machine to test the qualifications of a rookie Senator for the top spot.  Barbara Walters told Piers Morgan last night that everyone thought Obama was the Messiah, which is why his failures are so disappointing to them (via Newsbusters and Truth Revolt):

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime. Why is Obama facing so much opposition now? Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?

BARBARA WALTERS: Well, you’ve touched on it to a degree. He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.

It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.

Probably in the Senate, most immediately in terms of politics. In real terms, millions of Americans have already experienced “a lot of changes” by having their health insurance cancelled, thanks in large part to the media failing to demand an explanation of how the “keep your plan” promise was supposed to work. Don’t forget the skyrocketing premiums, which exposed the Obama promise of lowering premiums by $2500 as another cheap (so to speak) lie that the media didn’t scrutinize from its Messiah.

Lots of changes, yes, lots of changes.  Will the media stop giving Obama the Messiah treatment? That’s a change that we probably won’t see, and even Walters expresses hope in her statement that her Messiah will reappear over the next three years.  This Advent season, it’s probably better to trust in the true Messiah rather than Walters’, and certainly better than trusting in the media that propped him up.

If progressives are going to make any progress expanding government during the rest of Obama’s presidency, it will only be through unilateral executive action. It will not be sanctioned by Congress.

Dammit, people, unless you are going to use quotes aroudn it, do NOT call liberals “progressive”. It just makes it look like even conservatives agree that being liberal is being about progress. STOP IT!!!!

CNN thought Piers would be a ratings messiah in place of Larry King, and he was a ratings disaster.

ABC thought Babs would be a ratings messiah in place of Harry Reasoner, and she was a ratings disaster.

The MSM thought Barry would be a socialist Messiah in place of W, and now Barry’s 5th year approval number is worse than Bush’s.

This is a black hole of suckage.

NotCoach on December 18, 2013 at 10:10 AM

FIFY. OK, really they’re redundant. But I thought the connection should be made explicit.

The really interesting thing here is the phrase “Messiah treatment”. Because, if you look at how the real Messiah was treated when he was on Earth, it’s not anything like how the media have treated Obama. Heck, one of the clues about the/an anti-Christ is that everyone will follow him.

The only time the majority of the sycophants in the lapdog media will turn on Barack Obama is when they have their backs to the wall and their only options are to either paint Obama as incompetent or admit that the progressive agenda doesn’t work.

It’s gems of truth like this from the elitist narcissists of the lamestream media that highlights their intellectual bankruptcy… the cult of character that they created around a thin-skinned, petulant, feckless, narcissistic former community organizer, the embracing of the title of ‘Messiah’ for that former community organizer when organized religion is something most of the left refuses to believe or accept, and the admission of the progressive-fascist bias that exists within so many self-anointed elite who work in the lamestream media.

And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn’t worked for him, and he’s stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.

Obamacare, it just hasn’t worked for HIM. As always, it’s ALL ABOUT OBAMA. Baba, what about the millions who are losing their insurance and are dealing with skyrocketing premiums and deductibles because of HIM and his health care law? How is it working for them? These people disgust me.

I don’t think they do. I think the rest of the world in general sees him for what he is and dislike him even more than we do. The leaders of all our enemies see him as weak and ineffectual. Our allies and friends see him the same way and don’t trust him. Can’t say I blame them, I don’t trust him either.

It’s very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You’re almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they’ve dropped.

Dearest Babs,

When you, (and your complicit liberal media) commit the ultimate sin in journalism—forsaking your own code of ethics—for the sole purpose of advancing your own twisted agenda, moving the goal post, (expectation levels), leaves the public to draw only one conclusion—you, and your fellow pigs of yellow journalism no longer possess the credible means to address the public, leaving all of you a disgrace to the profession.

SPJ Code of Ethics

“Members of the Society of Professional Journalists believe that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy.

The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist’s credibility. Members of the Society share a dedication to ethical behavior and adopt this code to declare the Society’s principles and standards of practice.”

Nothing in this preamble describes you or your fellow liberal comrades, who have collected your thirty pieces of silver while worshiping a false Messiah. Like the Egyptians in the wilderness, the Golden Calf has become the assimilation of a once respected profession, under the guise of “enlightening the public”. And you will reap what you have shamefully sown.

As far as the MSM is concerned, most of those are “phony scandals” ginned up by their Messiah’s racist opposition. And in the case of the IRS, the only thing they think the IRS did wrong was not harass and intimidate conservative groups nearly enough.

Not a whole lot of introspection going on here, is there? No questioning of HOW someone in a profession that prides itself in skepticism, fact-seeking, and piercing the veil of complacency entirely abandoned their obligations, turned off the analytical part of their brains, and unabashedly sold out their standards for this guy on the basis of a few good-sounding promises. So why should we believe you wouldn’t do it all over again in the same circumstances?

BobMbx on December 18, 2013 at 11:40 AM

Walters would it have been too difficult to actually look into a few issues before pronouncing him the Messiah? Like how could the President of the Law Review not have a published article? Why no one seems to remember any of the things he wrote about in the autobiographies? Why does his birth certificate appear on the modern paper and not the one in use when he was born? (and yes he was born in Hawaii, but that does not mean something is not quite right here). How did he get a Connecticut SSN? Every offered explanation has proven to be false. How come nobody remembers such a ‘gifted’ student?

Whay in Obama’s past would cause anyone to think this guy is even a political messiah? He was an unaccomplished bum. The best thing you could say about him was that he was lecturer on Constitutional Law… Lecturer, not “professor” as it is often sold. This guy was a bag full o’ secrets he counted on the press to hide.

He won’t even release his transcripts.

To quote the true Messiah of Israel:

“I spoke openly to the world. I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where the Jews always meet, and in secret I have said nothing. Why do you ask Me? Ask those who have heard Me what I said to them. Indeed they know what I said.”

4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.

Matthew 24:4-8

26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it. 27 For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 28 Wherever there is a carcass, there the vultures will gather.

Even Obama thinks he’s the Messiah.

1. He constantly claims to be a healer of America’s ills. Jesus, too, came to heal: “When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, ‘They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.’”

2. He constantly positions himself as a victim, e.g. “No one is more frustrated with this website than I am!” Very pious attitude, the sacrificial victim, the paschal lamb!

3. Like Jesus, he has no Father here on earth.

4. At Georgetown, he forced them to remove the crucifix that was over the wall he’d be standing under.

5. Like Jesus, he operates chiefly by faith, and hope. “Yes we can!” Keynesian multiplier! Jobless recovery!! Obamacare!!!

6. I heard him once on the radio explicating Scripture. He was using Scripture to justify gay marriage, I think using the golden rule, Just like young Jesus in the temple, explaining Scripture to the elder priests.

Many other examples, I always see them when they crop up.

Herald of Woe on December 18, 2013 at 12:09 PM

“We thought he was going to be … the next Messiah”

And they compelled him to carry on his back through the streets of the District a circle of blue, measuring 8 feet in diameter, with stripes of red and white arching across its lower half.

As he carried the giant circle, he bowed beneath its weight. The people lining the streets spat upon him and mocked him as he passed by, and no one offered to carry the circle for him.

Outside the District, they laid him down upon the giant blue circle and nailed his ears to it. Then, they raised the circle into an upright position.

Someone attached a sign at the top of the circle. It said, “Barack, King of the News.”

At the foot of the circle, Barbara Walters wept.

“Behold our messiah,” she wailed.

After three hours nailed by his ears to the circle, the sky grew cloudless and bright and totally silent. The man on the circle looked side to side, as if reading a teleprompter, and cried out, “I am finished. Have you seen my latest poll numbers?”

With that, he closed his eyes. The earth opened and swallowed the giant blue circle. A moment later, the earth reopened and spat out the man who had been nailed by his ears to the circle.

Resurrected, he then went on to become secretary-general of the United Nations and to ruthlessly implement a system of one-world government.

“Truly, this was a son of a b*tch,” said Piers Morgan in rapturous awe of what he had seen.

The end.

FlameWarrior on December 18, 2013 at 12:36 PM

We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah.

Oh, yes, Babs. And if I may inquire – who is this “We” you are referring to? Is this just a close circle of your friends, or the media that you know, or the media in general, or something else entirely.

Oh, and one more question – why should I place any value at all on anything you say, based on what you just said. (note lack of question mark)

dissent555 on December 18, 2013 at 12:39 PM

Peggy Noonan offers this pearl today:

“I would add that in recent weeks I have begun to worry about the basic competency of the administration,”

Noonan re-classifies herself as a spitter, and no longer a swallower.

Sorry, BHO. She’s just not that into you……

If this isn’t the ultimate proof that liberalism is a mental disorder, I don’t know what is.

txdoc on December 18, 2013 at 10:47 AM

Oh, that’s been a given for a long, long time. Babs is simply an ongoing example of liberal mental incompetency.

HiJack on December 18, 2013 at 10:50 AM

In the same way that religiosity is also a mental disorder.

No, Baba Wawa, you and your pals in the media arm of the donkey party didn’t “think” that Barry-O was the Chocolate-Covered Second Coming; you packaged him as that.

It wasn’t Barry-O’s campaign staff that took all of those pictures of the dude with a “halo” around his head.

It wasn’t Barry-Os’ campaign staff who compared him to God.

It wasn’t Barry-O’s campaign staff that was cooing and giggling and ogling him on his plane during the 2008 campaign.

And it wasn’t Barry-O’s campaign staff that was elbowing one another jockeying for positions to serve as his Royal Litter-Bearers to carry him across the finish line in 2008 and 2012.

And ya know what, Baba Wawa? I bet if he said “To Hell with the 22nd Amendment!” and ran for a third time, you’d be putting your knee pads back on and reporting for duty.

Oh, and one more question – why should I place any value at all on anything you say, based on what you just said. (note lack of question mark)

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: You have interviewed every president of my lifetime.

Lefturds are just plain thoughtless and nasty people, even toward their own.

Hey! At least the progs have a messiah!!!

Where’s your conservative messiah, huh?

You’re not allowed to criticize without one!!!

WTF is wrong with these people? We live in a Republic, not in a Kingdom.

WordsMatter on December 18, 2013 at 10:10 AM

But the media wants it to be a Magic Kingdom of Unicorn farts and Gay Ferry Dust…..

All of their dreams will be shattered when their followers realize there is no free lunch and they have to get back to work – or starve.

After three hours nailed by his ears to the circle, the sky grew cloudless and bright and totally silent. The man on the circle looked side to side, as if reading a teleprompter, and cried out, “I am finished. Have you seen my latest poll numbers?”

With that, he closed his eyes.

FlameWarrior on December 18, 2013 at 12:36 PM

“We thought he was going to be … the next Messiah”

Barbara Walters

.
And they compelled him to carry on his back through the streets of the District a circle of blue, measuring 8 feet in diameter, with stripes of red and white arching across its lower half.

As he carried the giant circle, he bowed beneath its weight. The people lining the streets spat upon him and mocked him as he passed by, and no one offered to carry the circle for him.

Outside the District, they laid him down upon the giant blue circle and nailed his ears to it. Then, they raised the circle into an upright position.

Someone attached a sign at the top of the circle. It said, “Barack, King of the News.”

At the foot of the circle, Barbara Walters wept.

“Behold our messiah,” she wailed.

After three hours nailed by his ears to the circle, the sky grew cloudless and bright and totally silent. The man on the circle looked side to side, as if reading a teleprompter, and cried out, “I am finished. Have you seen my latest poll numbers?”

With that, he closed his eyes. The earth opened and swallowed the giant blue circle. A moment later, the earth reopened and spat out the man who had been nailed by his ears to the circle.

Resurrected, he then went on to become secretary-general of the United Nations and to ruthlessly implement a system of one-world government.

“Truly, this was a son of a b*tch,” said Piers Morgan in rapturous awe of what he had seen.

The end.

In the same spirit, here’s Piers Morgan’s “take” on Rev 20:1-3

1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan Rush Limbaugh, and bound him a thousand years, 3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.

Yeah, yeah I know. The consensus is in. I had a momentary loss of sanity and allowed some facts to intrude. Stupid of me…All hail The Won!

The MSM thought Barry would be a socialist Messiah in place of W, and now Barry’s 5th year approval number is worse than Bush’s.

This is a black hole of suckage.

That liberals were wrong (again), is neither news or criticism worthy.

AGAIN the challenge should be: You know you’re wrong…FIX IT!!
