Newsweek's Evan Thomas: Obama is "Sort of God"

No wonder Obama's got such an outsized ego. Women want to be with Obama, and men... well, the men in the media want to be with Obama too.

I am not overstating things when I say that Obama could ask for blow-jay from pretty much any man in the media and get, at the very least, a shy apology and a raincheck.

So, Evan Thomas thinks he's "sort of god."

Well, of course you do, darling.

Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God." ......

Thomas elaborated on Obama as God, patronizingly explaining: "He's going to bring all different sides together...Obama is trying to sort of tamper everything down. He doesn't even use the word terror. He uses extremism. He's all about let us reason together...He's the teacher. He is going to say, ‘now, children, stop fighting and quarreling with each other.’ And he has a kind of a moral authority that he – he can – he can do that." In response, Matthews wondered: "If there's a world election between him and Osama Bin Laden, he's running a good campaign." Thomas agreed: "Yes, he is."

Uh huh.

Allah agrees that "flip flops for the public good" are the opening shot in the media/government roll-out of Obama's tax hikes.

Question: How many people in the MSM do you imagine have actually been consulted on this, told that taxes will have to be raised (but off the record, of course), and asked for their help in preparing the public for it?

My guess: About 15-20% of the Washington Press Corps. And they're all, to a man, willing to help in some way.

They all know damn well that Obama has created conditions such that we face massive tax hikes on everyone or runaway inflation. (Or, of course: Both.) They know this, they have even been told this by the White House, but they are keeping silent about it.

Until the White House decides it's time to launch its new "product." The public appetite must be stoked, first.

I've written Jake Tapper asking him to please ask Gibbsy or Bammy about this before the official product roll-out.

And while Evan Thomas is ready to kneel to Obama (as god or as man -- it's all good, either way), our resident annoyingly earnest troll Palin Steele has informed us that Obama is Captain America, savin' the country.

Seriously, you have to read this beclownacious drivel. And the mighty trashing that follows. Pretty much all the world's greatest superheroes weigh in on her claim.

Thanks to AHFF Geoff for pointing out more of this quote. It's worse than I imagined.
