    Sounds like the author is talking about Obama, doesn't it?

    Remember Obama giving a pre-election speech with Greek temple columns as props?

    Remember children being taught to sing the "Obama song" in school?

    Remember the uniformed yoots swearing an oath of allegiance to Obama?

    Remember Chris Matthews telling us that every speech Obama gives is "the greatest speech since the Gettysburg address"?

    Remember Obama comparing himself to Lincoln -- and Reagan?

    Yes -- I think all of us comprehend, quite well, the power of myth and story. :upeyes:

    I for one, never believed the story about Obama being "born in a manger in Bethlehem"

    but then again, given what few facts we DO have, it is still plausible.

    Well he has apparently subcontracted part of the "going after the moneylenders" thing out to Biden.
