The Press has Created a Monster: Why Should we be Surprised that Even Obama Thinks of Himself as Dear Leader?

By the Left Coast Rebel

I'll never forget the 2008 election. The media Obama circus was something that even I never would have expected to witness in America, truly fit for a third world nation.

One particular incident in early-to-mid 2008 comes to mind. My wife and I made a trip to the local Wal Mart to grab some odds and ends...I meandered by the magazine aisle, my jaw dropped by the spectacle in front of me: every single magazine (home decor, gossip, finance, entertainment, etc.) was plastered with Dear Leader-esque Obamamania propaganda.

Here's one of thousands of examples from that time:

I recall another Time Magazine cover glowingly reading, "When Barry Became Barack."

Three years later not much has changed. The media has created a monster.

Should it come as any surprise that he thinks he's the omnipotent Dear Leader, too?

Obama's statement to a group of youthful supporters his people reveals a recent Dear Leader moment.

White House Dossier (emphasis mine):

What kind of political leader tells his supporters this?

My belief in you has not lessened.

President Obama does. That’s what he said toward the end a speech at a campaign fundraiser last night in Washington to a relatively youthful crowd of supporters he was trying spur back toward the energy level of 2008.

He still believes in what he believes, which is also what they believe, he said.

The vision that brought us together in 2008, that’s undiminished in me.

And best of all, our Leader let it be known, thankfully, that he continues to have faith in you and me as well.

The confidence I have in the American people, in their decency, that’s undiminished. My faith that we can make tough choices on behalf of future generations, that’s undiminished.


I'm so glad that His belief in me has not lessened. Also, His blessing makes me feel so safe and happy, I'm grateful that His undiminished faith in me is something I can hold so dearly, especially since we don't have an economy, Constitution, freedom, economic mobility....

I'm just so grateful that He has graced us with His presence.

  1. Jeez. You really just personally don't like Obama, huh? Whatever differences I have with him, I don't think he's some Mesphistophelian lunatic.

  2. My differences with Obama are purely philosophical, political, and practical.

    However, I find myself in agreement with the article.

  3. JMJ: Again the forest for the trees...the article expresses my derision toward the "Dear Leader" aspect of Obamania and, that the man clearly thinks that he is the Chose One (to this day) to save America from it's selfish (capitalistic) ways.

  4. The 2008 coverage was clearly biased (the multiple Newsweek covers, etc.). I do, however, think that the luster has tarnished at least a little. At the very least, the guy's being being mocked and ridiculed on SNL.
