Is There An "Obama Cult"?

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.

You gotta hear this... the song for Rahm Emanuel.

Legalizeliberty found it awhile back. I think it falls into the category of what you are talking about.

Look at the words:

There was a time when I felt so lost
When I was confused
At night I turned and tossed

Then I saw your eyes lookin' right thru me
And I knew I was saved
Yes, I knew I was free

The sun feels warmer now
The day seems brighter now
The wind blows cooler now

Rahm Emanuel...Rahm Emanuel

My eyes can see more now
My dreams more vivid now
A chance for us somehow

Rahm Emanuel...Rahm Emanuel

The sun feels warmer now
The day seems brighter now
The wind blows cooler now

Rahm Emanuel...Rahm Emanuel

My eyes can see more now
My dreams more vivid now
A chance for us somehow

Rahm Emanuel...Rahm Emanuel
Rahm Emanuel...Rahm Emanuel
Rahm Emanuel...Rahm Emanuel
Rahm Emanuel.

The wayward "Israelites" got their king....

"The Number one reason people lose money is the FEAR of losing money." Sir John Templeton

You are right.

Many people do seem to be displaying this attitude...and it is quite scary.
