One of the more dispiriting features of the ongoing national disaster that is the Obama Presidency, is the way some of his more crazed acolytes have given him the type of adulation that should be reserved for God. Go here to read an early example of this bilge. And who could possibly forget the Obama kids, tools in the hands of parents who were worshipers of the South Side Messiah:
Obama is merely the latest manifestation of the disturbing trend on the Left in this country for politics to serve as a substitute religion.
Clint Eastwood’s empty chair takedown of Obama was a healthy reaction to this horse manure. Eastwood reminded us that politicians are hired hands, our servants, and not little tin gods to bow down to. Eastwood got to the heart of what he wanted to accomplish in a speech yesterday:
“People don’t have to kiss it up with politicians, no matter what party they’re in,” he added. “You should evaluate their work and make your judgments accordingly. That’s the way you do in life in every other subject. But sometimes in America we get gaga, you know, we look at the wrong values.”
The Obama administration in so many ways has been an utter betrayal of what America has stood for at her best. The attempt to secularly deify a politician from Chicago, abetted by a media that largely views any criticism of him as heresy, is deeply un-American.
