Having Healed Us, Obama Turns Sights to Ocean and Earth

"[T]his was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal . . ." -Barack Obama, June 4, 2008 in a speech after on his receiving enough delegate votes to clinch the Democrat nomination for President

Barack Obama used to be content with healing the nation's racial divisions as he careened across the country tossing his family and old pals under the bus in a color-blind manner as he sped along. Now that he's sewed up the nomination, apparently he has also begun to heal the earth. Anyone concerned? So much humility.

Commentary: The Wall Street Journal weighs in on "The Obama We Don't Know."

I fully expected him to wave his arms and part the crowd of humanity in the arena when he made the comment about the oceans of the earth. How lucky we all are that we get to vote for a new messiah...........NOT.

Amazing how so many self-proclaimed agnostics are into the "new messiah". Do you think that maybe something is missing in their lives?

I chalk up Obama's apparently wide appeal across the nation as evidence of the decline in public school education (thanks to the teachers' unions, courtesy of the Democrats), and private school education (staffed and directed by guilt-driven effete snobs who think mouthing the word "change" is all one has to say and -- poof! -- things change for the better). If there's anything missing in Obama supporters' lives, it's likely to be a brain.

Anon at 3:08 PM, what absolutely amazes me is how voters who probably use common sense in their everyday affairs could fall for this. Some of those lines knock Saturday Night Live out of the box, and could possibly come from that sci fi movie that played direcctly after "The Attack of the Killer Carrots."

El Rider, Think? I know it! There is a whole generation of people now who have had no introduction to religion and I am sure this is where it leads to. Should we campaign or just hold prayer meetings?

JK, Part one I don't agree with, as we had some fine presidents way back when much of the nation was illiterate, but your last comment is spot on as to what is missing.

To clarify, I wasn't referring to the masses as illiterate when I spoke of the failure of public and private education. If you use the verb educate to mean instruct, then my intent was to reflect that education in general has been so "dumbed down" due to the nefarious impact of teachers' unions, and the wider coarsening of culture and society. Many years ago,far fewer citizens were as "educated" to the number of years of schooling seen today, but in many ways their wisdom sprang from common sense, life experience and a healthy skepticism about any old fad (like Obamessiah) coming down the pike.
