Quote of the Day....

....Obama has presented himself from the start as a messianic, "transformational" leader -- and thus played deceitfully with ideas that belong to religion and not politics. That he has done this so successfully is a mark of the degree to which the U.S. itself, like the rest of the western world, has lost its purchase on the Christian religion. Powerful religious impulses have been spilt, secularized.
....In this climate, people tend to be maniacally opposed to the sin to which they are not tempted: to giving Christ control over the things that are Caesar's. But they are blind to the sin to which they are hugely tempted: giving Caesar control over the things that are Christ's.
...."Faith, hope, and charity" are Christ's things. They apply, properly, outside time -- to a "futurity" that is not of this world. They must not be applied to any earthly utopia. A Caesar who appropriates otherworldly virtues, is riding upon very dangerous illusions. Follow him into dreamland, and you'll be lucky to wake up.

-David Warren, from "Messianic pretensions"-

I don't know who David Warren is, but he hit the nail on the head.

O-Boy is everything that is wrong with the country. Personified.

My only dissagrement is that BO (now he wishes we use his middle name for initials- BHO beats BO!) is NOT the Antichrist, but a forerunner- like Beneto was to Adolph. But I could be wrong.

At any rate, America is ready for the Mark of the Beast.

Congrads, Liberals. The Big Lie ("Bush Lied") worked.
