If you help him, he’s gonna help you. Oh fucking yea… Welcome to the first edition of Cult Of Personality. He is the Messiah. He is the first affirmative action president. He has a Nobel Peace Prize for things he might do in the future. Cult of personality! Drink the kool-aid! He knows what you need to be. He is the smiling face on your TV! Obama math: $11.7 trillion debt is fiscal responsibility. Children are being taught to sing songs to Hussein Obama.
Why do I refer to King Hussein the First and the Second? Because he is the first affirmative action president and the second coming of Jesus. Hussein’s qualifications to be President: He was a Senator for 2 years and he was an unemployed lawyer (community organizer). Hussein can not state that he has not benefited from affirmative action. If he were to say that he would be considered an Uncle Tom by a large portion of the black population.
The only value of the political left to date has been providing a watch on the right and providing a watch on religion and an outlet for atheism. Now that Hussein the 1st & 2nd is King the media is ignoring all the things he is doing and we are seeing the emergence of the Religious Left.
Zero troops have been withdrawn from Iraq. More troops are sent to Afghanistan.
He is handing out “ethics waivers” for people in his cabinet and staff. What the fuck is an “ethics waiver” anyhow? In order to “waive” someone’s “ethics” that person receiving the waiver must have done something Hussein believes to be unethical, or else there would be no need to “waive” the “ethics”. This is your fucking hope and change?
White House Discloses 10 More Ethics Waivers for Administration Officials
The media is acting like the war in Iraq is over.
One of the reasons you idiots electing Hussein is because he “talk pretty”. Listen to him talk. “Ummm” is one of his favourite words.
Is Obama an enlightened being? Spiritual wise ones say: This sure ain’t no ordinary politician. You buying it? By Mark Morford. Obama isn’t really “one of us”. No he isn’t. Obama didn’t get elected “merely” because many people want to have sex with him, no there is more too him than that. It’s not “merely” his fresh ideas like the war in Iraq or $11.7 trillion debt. It’s not “merely” the fact that he’s black and so many white people feel guilt over slavery. No, it’s something much more than all that.
Hussein is a “Lightworker”. Say it with me – cult of personality. Oh yea, these people are “spiritual” not “religious” as if there is some fucking difference. You are all idiots. Obama is going to help usher in a “new way of being on the planet”. WHAT THE FUCK, OVER?
Hussein is going to “help us evolve”. Hussein is like JFK and MLK. JFK was “at odds with” the war machine. What? Have you ever read a history book asshole?
Hussein has more merchandising than the Beatles.
All praise the Messiah!
For another take on Obama as a Lightworker visit: “Is Obama an enlightened being?”

I find I’m having this discussion, this weird little debate, more and more, with colleagues, with readers, with liberals and moderates and miserable, deeply depressed Republicans and spiritually amped persons of all shapes and stripes and I’m having it in particular with those who seem confused, angry, unsure, thoroughly nonplussed, as they all ask me the same thing: What the hell’s the big deal about Obama?
I, of course, have an answer. Sort of.
Warning: If you are a rigid pragmatist/literalist, itchingly evangelical, a scowler, a doubter, a burned-out former ’60s radical with no hope left, or are otherwise unable or unwilling to parse alternative New Age speak, click away right now, because you ain’t gonna like this one little bit.
Ready? It goes likes this:
Barack Obama isn’t really one of us. Not in the normal way, anyway.
This is what I find myself offering up more and more in response to the whiners and the frowners and to those with broken or sadly dysfunctional karmic antennae – or no antennae at all – to all those who just don’t understand and maybe even actively recoil against all this chatter about Obama’s aura and feel and MLK/JFK-like vibe.
To them I say, all right, you want to know what it is? The appeal, the pull, the ethereal and magical thing that seems to enthrall millions of people from all over the world, that keeps opening up and firing into new channels of the culture normally completely unaffected by politics?
No, it’s not merely his youthful vigor, or handsomeness, or even inspiring rhetoric. It is not fresh ideas or cool charisma or the fact that a black president will be historic and revolutionary in about a thousand different ways. It is something more. Even Bill Clinton, with all his effortless, winking charm, didn’t have what Obama has, which is a sort of powerful luminosity, a unique high-vibration integrity.
Dismiss it all you like, but I’ve heard from far too many enormously smart, wise, spiritually attuned people who’ve been intuitively blown away by Obama’s presence – not speeches, not policies, but sheer presence – to say it’s just a clever marketing ploy, a slick gambit carefully orchestrated by hotshot campaign organizers who, once Obama gets into office, will suddenly turn from perky optimists to vile soul-sucking lobbyist whores, with Obama as their suddenly evil, cackling overlord.
Here’s where it gets gooey. Many spiritually advanced people I know (not coweringly religious, mind you, but deeply spiritual) identify Obama as a Lightworker, that rare kind of attuned being who has the ability to lead us not merely to new foreign policies or health care plans or whatnot, but who can actually help usher in a new way of being on the planet, of relating and connecting and engaging with this bizarre earthly experiment. These kinds of people actually help us evolve. They are philosophers and peacemakers of a very high order, and they speak not just to reason or emotion, but to the soul.
The unusual thing is, true Lightworkers almost never appear on such a brutal, spiritually demeaning stage as national politics. This is why Obama is so rare. And this why he is so often compared to Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., to those leaders in our culture whose stirring vibrations still resonate throughout our short history.
Are you rolling your eyes and scoffing? Fine by me. But you gotta wonder, why has, say, the JFK legacy lasted so long, is so vital to our national identity? Yes, the assassination canonized his legend. The Kennedy family is our version of royalty. But there’s something more. Those attuned to energies beyond the literal meanings of things, these people say JFK wasn’t assassinated for any typical reason you can name. It’s because he was just this kind of high-vibration being, a peacemaker, at odds with the war machine, the CIA, the dark side. And it killed him.
Now, Obama. The next step. Another try. And perhaps, as Bush laid waste to the land and embarrassed the country and pummeled our national spirit into disenchanted pulp and yet ironically, in so doing has helped set the stage for an even larger and more fascinating evolutionary burp, we are finally truly ready for another Lightworker to step up.
Let me be completely clear: I’m not arguing some sort of utopian revolution, a big global group hug with Obama as some sort of happy hippie camp counselor. I’m not saying the man’s going to swoop in like a superhero messiah and stop all wars and make the flowers grow and birds sing and solve world hunger and bring puppies to schoolchildren.
Please. I’m also certainly not saying he’s perfect, that his presidency will be free of compromise, or slimy insiders, or great heaps of politics-as-usual. While Obama’s certainly an entire universe away from George W. Bush in terms of quality, integrity, intelligence and overall inspirational energy, well, so is your dog. Hell, it isn’t hard to stand far above and beyond the worst president in American history.
But there simply is no denying that extra kick. As one reader put it to me, in a way, it’s not even about Obama, per se. There’s a vast amount of positive energy swirling about that’s been held back by the armies of BushCo darkness, and this energy has now found a conduit, a lightning rod, is now effortlessly self-organizing around Obama’s candidacy. People and emotions and ideas of high and positive vibration are automatically drawn to him. It’s exactly like how Bush was a magnet for the low vibrational energies of fear and war and oppression and aggression, but, you know, completely reversed. And different. And far, far better.
Don’t buy any of it? Think that’s all a bunch of tofu-sucking New Agey bulls– and Obama is really a dangerously elitist political salesman whose inexperience will lead us further into darkness because, when you’re talking national politics, nothing, really, ever changes? I understand. I get it. I often believe it myself.
Not this time.
