“... I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth. This was the moment — this was the time — when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves and our highest ideals.”
Oh, really, Obama?
Now, for all of you who still have doubts about whether or not he thinks of himself as The Chosen, I guess you can set your minds at ease. But let me get this straight. Is he the one who is making the rise of the oceans begin to slow, and the nation begin to heal, or is he saying that because he is who he is--the official Democratic nominee for the Presidency--that nature itself, is falling into submission? Is he saying that because of his greatness, and his great love for the People, that he has secured our safety as a nation, and not only that, now we have become pure and whole, and beacons of light to the whole world? Is this when we, as spoken of in scripture, beat our swords into plowshares? When the lion will lie down with the lamb? Hey..are we in the Millennium now?
Okay, I know it's not all that funny--but, neither are delusions of grandeur.
