Does that make yesterday the “Sermon on the Mount?”

Apparently, there is a great deal of confusion in this country. Yesterday, we inaugurated a President… although to hear some tell the tale, we anointed a saint, at a bare minimum.  In the words of Don King:

““I would say that he would be Joshua going across to the Promised Land,” King told CNSNews.com. “Martin Luther King Jr. went to the mountaintop like Moses, and he said, ‘I might not get there with you, but I can see the Promised Land.’ But we gonna’ get to the Promised Land. So Joshua carried them across. Martin Luther King, Jr. was prevented from going into the Promised Land.”

Given the enthusiasms of his speech-writers, what with “the day the waters stopped rising,” etc., it becomes readily apparent that *SOMEONE* has a Messiah complex, mayhap by proxy.

Don King, however, in the end sum, seems to have his head on right, unlike some others:

““No,” said King. “America changed my life. Barack Obama is just a part of the American scene, and what this means to me is that America is looking colorblind. They are no longer suffering from myopia. What we are talking about here is much more profound than just a guy who happens to be American and happens to be black.””

To paraphrase Michelle Obama, “This boxing promoter gets it!”

    "we inaugurated…, "we anointed…", surely you were not part of the "we", were you?

    Get over it: whomever you were for lost!

    At least you are more gracious than Rush who hopes Pres. Obama fails… that means the country wins?? he is beyond the pale.

      In this I agree with you 100%, davis. You see, I was for America.

    I would think that Obama and Congress could certainly fail in implementing liberal/socialist/progressive policies that I disagree with; while America wins. I hope that will be the case.

    "While America wins". LOVE THAT, by losing! and how that is going to come about? By following the same policies that have brought us to the current disaster? I am so glad that you can look at the loss of wealth by EVERYBODY (except the exploiters: Maddoff and all the edge-fund managers) and hang on to your dogmatic positions. The Conservatives had their chance for 20 years  and blew it (I wish they had not) and now my heirs (and I have some) and yours (maybe be you have them too) will have to pay for what has enriched a few dishonest people (heard about Thrain at Merrill-Lynch today??)

    I have to disagree with King: America was anything BUT colorblind in this election.  Obama won because he was black.  Whatever combination of black support/white guilt/not so subtle accusations of racism to vote otherwise/threats of race riots got him elected supercedes anything he brought to the table, which, by any realistic estimation, was nothing. The constant parade of "first black president" mantras is testament to that.  And racist besides.   The observation of the "thinnest resume in presidential history" is no exaggeration. 

    Secondly, it was not Bush's policies that brought about this economic quagmire: it was the crash of a superheated real estate market, combined with truly lousy subprime mortgages which were almost guaranteed to fail.  That they all did so almost simultaneously was the trigger.  It wasn't "predatory lending," it was "lackadaisical lending" that got too many unqualified people into houses they could not afford.   I don't recall any complaints by Democrats (read this: Dodd and Frank) while it was happening (quite the opposite in fact), implying either they approved, or were angling for the economic collapse in time for the election (ever wonder just why Schumer dropped a dime on INDYMAC(?), that California bank whose collapse he triggered with his unethical disclosures?).  Obama is an economic neophyte.

    It was more like when the people said give us a king like all other nations to Samuel. 1 Samual 8;7 

    And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
