If 2 of his hands were trying to pick his nose and the other 4 were trying to pick everyone’s pockets around him, I would say that’s a reasonable caricature.

This weasels at Newsweek are so damn predictable. The story isn't "Obama made a mess and he can't handle the job."

Nope. Instead, the story is "The job is just too tough and not even a God can handle it."

Just making excuses for their pet president.

President Bush had more on his plate dealing just with the events surrounding 911 than this Bozo has had to deal with.

But then again, President Bush was up to the task.

And Newsweak employees wonder why they’re shutting down that rag...

It hasn't occurred to them that butt kissing worship of all things liberal is offensive to half their potential readers.

And by 'half' I'm generously including all those inner city people who are functionally illiterate and extremely unlikely to ever subscribe to Newsweek...

Included in that 50% are groups of recent illegals who vote dem, but don't read English well enough to subscribe ...

and Union households where 'Newsweek' isn't the first magazine of choice... or even on the list.

Also left out - 'independents' - not committed to either party - and might be put off by a magazine that's picked sides...

Guess it's easy to understand why Newsweek's going under, afterall... The 'half' they appeal to is about 1%...

That’s why it’s a good idea to listen to G-d and let the free market handle the economy.

Newsweek just doesn't get it.

The Presidency has ALWAYS been too big for just one person. He/she is not an all-knowing dictator. They are the leader of a team.

The President is the chief Executive of the Federal government. The CEO; responsible for hiring the best qualified staff to run the Administration.

His main responsibility is to put the correct staff into place and coordinate, delegate and provide the guiding priniples for the team.

The last time the Presidency was too big for the President was when Skippy was in there.

The creepy thing about this “caricature” is that Obama belonged to a sect with a racist, new age, cult-like doctrine, Black Liberation Theology, which held the black race is the manifestation of god on earth and that a black man will exalt himself as the messiah, who will be the “destroyer” of America and white society. Below are some qoutes from Cones books on BLT:

http://www.box.net/shared/static/k33cip03y0.pdf

It is a theology which confronts white society as the racist Antichrist,

Blackness is a manifestation of the being of God...

The black Christ is he who nourishes the rebellious impulse in blacks so that at the appointed time the black community can respond collectively to the white community as a corporate “bad nigger,” lashing out at the enemy of humankind.

The new day is the presence of the black Christ as expressed in the liberation of the black community.

This question — What about integration? — completely ignores the beastly behavior of the “devil white man”

To be black is to be committed to destroying everything this country loves and adores.

The black revolution is the work of Christ.

I believe that all aspiring black intellectuals share the task that LeRoi Jones has described for the black artist in America: “To aid in the destruction of America as he knows it:”

he (Christ) is those very blacks whom white society shoots and kills. The contemporary Christ is in the black ghetto, making decisions about white existence and black liberation.

God’s revelation... is what happens in a black ghetto when the ghettoized decide to strike against their enemies.

Because whiteness by its very nature is against blackness, the black prophet is a prophet of national doom. He proclaims the end of the “American Way,” for God has stirred the soul of the black community...

The goal of black theology is the destruction of everything white

To be a disciple of the black Christ is to become black with him. Looting, burning, or the destruction of white property are not primary concerns

The appearance of Jesus as the black Christ also means that the black revolution is God’s kingdom becoming a reality in America. According to the New Testament, the kingdom is a historical event.

The black revolution is a continuation of that small kingdom. Whites do not recognize what is happening, and they are thus unable to deal with it.

Why the modern presidency may be too much for one person to handle.

It's not the office, it's the occupant. The President is the head of the execute branch...the CEO. If he appoints competent secretaries, has a good staff and doesn’t micro-manage, then he can manage the job with only two arms…

This is why we should elect "big picture" leaders and not policy wonks.

Par for the course for liberal atheist pagans.

First of all, Obama is not "God of all things."

God is God of all things.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End."

Revelation 22:13

Secondly, the Hindu "god" Shiva is Satanic.

Shiva is the destroyer of the universe (as Hindus believe Brahma created the universe). Shiva is simply Satan by another name, although even many Hindus do not realize it.

Black Liberation Theology is a Gnostic occult doctrine, in my opinion. The “Gnosis” (hidden knowlegde that will transform the world) is that the black race is God and the white race is the devil. Despite what you may have heard, BLT is derived largely from that of the Nation of Islam, which is also a Gnostic sect, not orthodox Islam. The exaltation or worship of man is characteristic of Luciferianism. One does not actually have to worship the red demon to be Luciferian. In the Bible, Lucifer was cast out, because he wanted to be equal to God. It is Luciferian in the sense that it follows the same principle. That means, man is not subject to any moral frame of reference.

You're a very smart person, and know your bible as well.

"For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil."

Genesis 3:5
