What is it the libs have said over and over?

'We never called Obama THE MESSIAH or THE ONE or anything like it.'

Well, we all KNOW that they have done it over and over and over.

And it can and has been shown over and over.

But let's take just the LATEST case to prove the point.

Barbara Walters no less.

Barbara Walters on Obama: ‘We Thought He Was Going To Be The Next Messiah’

The libs can run from their words - they always do! - but they can't hide.

So libs, did you say it or not?

Did you believe it or not?

Not only did the media think that Obama was THE MESSIAH.

Now, in a moment of unguarded honesty, Andrea Mitchell shows how dishonestly in the bag for Obama journalists are!

Andrea Mitchell Plots Dem Strategy: 'Many of Us in the Media' Touted More Spending

"MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell on Friday openly plotted strategy with a senior Democratic adviser, complimenting him on successful efforts to convince Americans to think that raising the debt ceiling wasn't "running up the credit card." [MP3 audio here.]

Mitchell talked to Doug Hattaway, a member of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign. She praised, "You were one of the advisors to persuade the Democrats that for this round of the debt ceiling debate they had to re-frame it so that it wasn't the Democrats wanting to spend more money." Mitchell unselfconsciously continued, "As hard as many of us in the media tried to persuade people, this is money that's already been spent, we're just paying the bills."

Mitchell then helpfully showcased a graph for Democrats. Under "don't say this" were words and phrases such as "debt ceiling" and "refuse to raise the debt ceiling." Under "say this" were examples including "default crisis" and "catastrophe.""

"Journalists" seem to be very much emboldened under Obama to just come out and show how biased and dishonest they are!

Obama still seems to think he is THE MESSIAH! Contrary to the protestations of progressive liberals on these boards who say that NOBODY ever said any such thing.

Tonight, as Obama was thanking his campaign people for all the hard work they did to get him re-elected, Dear Leader said that "The work you are doing is God's work,"

The man is beyond just being a narcissist!

He is dangerously delusional!

Obama Says Supporters Doing 'God's Work'

"President Obama thanked the group that used to be his reelection campaign, Organizing for Action, in event tonight in Washington.

"The work you are doing is God's work," Obama told supporters."

In the Bible there were cases of God immediately striking leaders dead when they took credit for what God had done.

Maybe God will see fit to do what he did in the Bible.

So what was your point in what you said?

Are you also admitting that most progressive liberals now see what a total disaster the inept, incompetent and corrupt Obama is? Are you admitting that?

Or are you still drinking the koolaid?

Hmmmmmm?

Something many of his staunchest supporters must realize by now, but are too bound to their ideology to openly admit it.
Ideology trumps courage and propagates cowardice.

sgm4law, "So Barbara Walters uses hyperbole to describe the expectations when Obama was elected and you of course latch on to it as The Truth from Six Years Ago.

Wow."

WOW, indeed!

In your dictionary, is "hyperbole" "lies" or is "hyperbole" "ignorance"?

And this was NOT "The Truth from Six Years Ago" .... whatever you are trying to say by that.

It is the "truth" of what Walters and countless mindless progressive liberals thought.

And it is illustrated by Barbara Walters PROFOUND disappointment now that Obama is NOT the MESSIAH and that he has turned out to be such an inept and incompetent boob!

Sorry that reality is such a bummer for progressive liberals!

People only heard what they wanted to hear. They heard free healthcare and thought it would be free for them. Little did they understand it would only be free for a few, but most of us will end up paying more. They didn’t hear or ignored him when he said energy cost would skyrocket under his plan. People thought he was talking to him when he promised the moon and stars but didn’t relies he was talking to someone else.

"Then, as I began to contemplate ways to assist Barack in his 2012 re-election bid something miraculous happened. I felt God’s (His) Spirit beckoning me in my dreams at night. Listening, cautiously, I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor.

Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side. He had the answers to unlock the kingdom of “heaven here on earth” for his followers. The answers were repeated – over and over – in speeches Barack had made from his presidential announcement to his inaugural address. Those speeches or his teachings contained the answers to the middle class and working poor people living in a “heaven here on earth.”

For when the answers were unlocked and enacted, Apostle Barack’s vision of America would be realized."

i didnt watch the whole thing, but i saw it for 2-3 seconds while channel switching last night, and uffda, she looked like an 80 year old street walker in that sweater top she had on. good gawd, she looked like she was pretending to look like farrah fawcet.

i do remember years ago when she decided to do a live confession on some tv show about the many times she'd been married and how she (bragged) bedded several various men while married, and it didn't seem to matter to her if the other men were also married.

personally, i do not like her. the only good thing she ever did was to fire - 'rosie o'spoonful' from that talk show.

she looked like a puke last night in that outfit.

I thought it was only the Obama haters who referred to him as a messiah?
That's what all of the Obama apologists have told us for years now.
Guess not.
And you know when there is one, there are more.
Walters did say "we"
Millions were ready to fall at Obamas feet.
What's even more amusing is there must also be millions of Obama supporters that think what Walters said is about as nutty as one can be.
Yet nary a peep.

Oh my gosh, did you see Barbara Walters on her TV special last night? She wore an off the shoulder sweater with a swept back hair style. It looks hideous, like she was pretending to be my age. Isn't she like 75 or something? Yuk.

Second, isn't she Jewish? So if she is, she doesn't believe in Christmas as Christians do. And then she had the gaul to say something like: she hated to say it "at this time of year" (meaning Christmas?) we all thought he would be our mesiah. I guess that coming from her would then be, "unChristian like", right?

What Democrats lack is common sense.

With Obama, they hired a public relations spokesman for the CEO position. And we wonder why "the company" is failing rapidly?

No wonder they fail at business and only make money writing books (that they didn't even write).

He is a Zero, his background in "nothing" is proof

umm, yup on the donkey, but the other one I like is:the difference is, Jesus could build a cabinet and was satisfied with 10%.

-

Jesus really could walk on water. Obama only thinks he can.

-
10. Jesus cured the sick and the lame. Obama is lame.

9. Jesus walked on water. Members of the Obama cult think Obama walks on water.

8. Jesus drove the money changers from the Temple. Obama squeezes them for contributions.

7. Jesus said “Suffer the little children to come unto me.” Obama only got the first four words of that quotation.

6. Jesus was a Jew. Obama is a (fill in the blank.)

5. Jesus rode a jackass into Jerusalem. Obama relied on the votes of jackasses to ride into Washington.
4. Jesus spoke with authority. Obama votes present.

3. Jesus was born in a stable. Obama is doing his best with his economic policies to ensure that is where we all be living if he gets a second term.

2. Jesus died to free us from our sins. Obama tells us our sins are not sins.

1. Jesus really was the Messiah.

-Jesus didn't need a birth certificate, Obama had 2 or 3.

It appears that she's learned nothing from her mistake.

From the interview:
"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."

Let's see here, Babwa...first you thought he was going to be a messiah and now you seem to be able to admit that he's been a failure.

After 5 solid years of epic failure after failure Babwa, isn't it just downright STUPID of you to expect the next 3 years to be anything but more of the same out of this loser?

AFSNCO, yup Obama first read in the newspaper about all the bad things he did , just like you and me!

He had NO idea he had done all those bad things.

Libs are so transparently silly and dishonest, aren't they?

And then they have the gall to say about Reagan, "He was a terrible, terrible choice to run this country and did terrible things..."

That is exactly what they expected. They thought things were going to be better. Fact is, things have gotten worse for many he claimed he was going to help. Not only that but his presidency has been rocked by scandal after scandal that he knew nothing about (or so he claims). The first 4 years he got by with blaming Bush...now the blame game is all his and he cannot hide from it any longer.

"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."
