Jim Geraghty on Obama’s Messiah Problem

And it is a problem in this country. The Left Finally Accepts Religion in Government… So Long As You Worship Obama Thinking about the Smith College op-ed where a student declares Obama to be her "Personal Jesus," I'm reminded of something I wrote on the off-duty blog: This [children singing about Obama] video illustrates a… Continue reading »
