Is There An "Obama Cult"?Submitted by FreeJesseVentura on Sat, 03/21/2009 - 18:38
I am personally disturbed by blindly obedient, cultish behavior, regardless of whether it comes from Barack Obama supporters, Rush Limbaugh supporters, or even Ron Paul supporters.
It is my theory that desperate people, given today's economy, are willing to believe just about any "easy answer" given them. If you tuned into the Obama speech in California this past week you may have been appalled at the sycophantic behavior of audience members.
Here is a story that noted the same:
>>>>>During his trip, the president has sought to lower the expectations of his adoring fans, saying it will take time to accomplish their goals.
At a town hall meeting in Los Angeles earlier Thursday, he warned an audience anxious over cuts to schools that it will cost money to pay for high-quality education.
The president met a crowd filled with supporters, who cheered nearly every answer he offered. While tickets were distributed online and none of the questioners were preselected, the questions were friendly, sometimes fawning.
"You inspire such a passion," said one man, who identified himself as a campaign volunteer. "How can we best partner with you?"<<<<<
I listened to a woman fawning over Obama as if he were a favorite child... she actually wasted everyone's time by recalling an argument she had with her friend who bet her there would "never be a black president". It was repellent behavior.
