Obama's RISE to being a cult figure.

I dare not let this day pass without refreshing my memory of many of the bizarre images that have come out of this amazing rise of a cult figure beside the fact that he is president of the United States. We've seen him recreated in comic books as Spiderman, Superman and others. We've seen news blogs and websites dedicated to giving a human-like character to his teleprompter. Prior to the election, candidate Obama, signaled to the world that he was more than a possibility to becoming an American President but a serious world figure by speaking to thousands in Berlin, German in front of Victory Column. In the U.S., he was compared to Abraham Lincoln, had many many photos at the Lincoln Memorial, took a train ride prior to his inauguration mimicking Lincoln's same journey to the White House as well as visiting Ford's Theatre where Lincoln took his fatal shot.

In Denver, Colorado, at the site of the 2008 Democratic National Convention Obama gave his acceptance speech in front of the recreation of a greek style facade representing the birth place of democracy. At a parade, spectators saw a large float showing him as an angel with wings and halo while it effortlessly appeared to float along the route in the air. A blogger compared Obama's lean physical body to his own youthful cult figure, "Bat Boy" while the Obama's vacationed in Hawaii.
Lastly, is the comparison to Christ in artwork portraying Obama sitting atop a live donkey and is paraded through the streets mimicking the ride of Christ through the streets of Jerusalem. Today marks his 100th day in office and a painting has been created depicting Barack Obama, holding back a veil or curtain mimicking Christ hanging on the cross. About the only thing that hasn't been depicted yet is Obama being resurrected. I'll be waiting for that graphic depiction and at the rate things are happening, it won't be long.

Many graphic depictions have been created up-to-now. Read how Michele Malkin depicts his first 100 days in office on her blog entitled: "100 days of reckless photo-op hubris" http://michellemalkin.com/2009/04/29/100-days-of-the-poser-presidency/
