Hey, it worked for Muslims. Kinda.
From an editorial at Politiken.dk entitled Obama greater than Jesus…
Today, his historic Health Reform is being passed through the American Senate – a welfare policy breakthrough that several of his predecessors have been unable to manage.
Despite all the compromises, it has finally been possible to ensure something so fundamental, as the right of every American not to be financially shipwrecked when their health fails them. Add to that the biggest ever financial support package in America’s history, a major disarmament agreement and the quickest-ever re-establishment of American reputation.
On the other hand, we have Jesus’ miracles that everyone still remembers, but which only benefitted a few. At the same time, we have the wonderful parables about his life and deeds that we know from the New Testament, but which have been interpreted so differently over the past 2000 years that it is impossible to give an unequivocal result of his work.
Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus – if we have to play that absurd Christmas game. But it is probably more meaningful to insist that with today’s domestic triumph, that he has already assured himself a place in the history books – a space he has good chances of expanding considerably in coming years.
Wow. And the best Bill Clinton could do was an intern on her knees.
I was going to deconstruct the whole piece, but I have an aversion to 10,000 word articles at Redstate. I think the average Redstate reader can take one look at the highlighted portions above (my emphasis BTW) and figure out pretty accurately where I’d come down, so I’ll just leave it open for comments.
Three more years. Sheesh.
