Skip to comments.Newsweek: Obama is 'The Second Coming'

How did the rest of the media miss this? According to the new issue of Newsweek online, President Obama, who this weekend begins his second term--the third president in a row to do so--is "The Second Coming."
With flattering photographs, the magazine edited by Obama fan Tina Brown holds out hope that in his second Inaugural Address, Obama can inspire and show that he can also lead.
The conservative media watch dog, Media Research Center, first noticed the God-like cover.
"Conservatives have long joked that the national press corps see Barack Obama as the second coming of Jesus Christ. Today, Newsweek - at least what's left of it, an online product for tablets and e-readers - made it official," said Center Vice President Brent Baker
"Next to a side shot of Obama's head, the 'Inauguration 2013' cover story pronounces: 'The Second Coming.'"
Baker notes that the author, long-time Newsweek veteran Evan Thomas, gave Obama God-like qualities during his first year in office, saying on MSNBC, "In a way, Obama's standing above the country, above -- above the world. He's sort of God. He's going to bring all different sides together."
Kinda like a modern day BOHICA?
False gods have a habit of tripping up on their feet of clay.
The Second Coming of Hitler..yeah I already knew that
Does nobody on the left see any parallels in this worship thing.
Nah, Newsweak only wants him to be the second coming

I would suggest as kind of a rear guard action driving liberals insane would be refusing to call this cosmic joke “President Obama.” Instead call him “Mr. Obama” even adding in an AKA “Sotero” if one choses. I noted another day a liberal got very upset by a failure to call him President Obama.
They do not because they are always looking for a savior and they suffer from mental disorder.
There are tipping points for both sides, but the only side testing the tipping point is the Obama crowd.
The people on the other side just want to be left alone.
I honestly hope against hope that the Obama side just stands down for awhile.
This is probably why they couldn’t even make a go of selling their rag in print any more.
On the one hand, all the MSM takes any and every chance to belittle, ridicule and undermine Judeo-Christian religion in any way possible while fiercely lobbying for and protecting the rights of every other nutball religion (i.e., ISLAM).
They further cry, sob, and pontificate about the ‘gun violence’ that kills [GASP!] CHILDREN! but are vehement in the rights of those whose daily lives and fortunes are dedicated to the abortion of untold millions of unborn souls who aren’t even allowed to become children.
They can all go to hell - the sooner the better.
Did he tempt Eve during his first coming?
I wonder if Newsweek will go into mourning when Hugo Chavez goes room temperature from his cancer? Just a thought.
God will not excuse this blasphemy.
Second coming alright. Kind of like when you have diarrhea.
When I saw that a few months ago (given everything else surrounding this guy) this verse came to mind:
King James Version (KJV)
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth
by the means of those miracles
which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;
saying to them that dwell on the earth,
that they should make an image to the beast,
which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
He sure hasn’t done any miracles yet.
Evan Thomas, the great-grandson of a Christian minister. Blasphemy and double disgrace.
The Second Coming
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
Make that the Anti-Christ and you have an explanation of the Obama worship in this sick country.
Well, to be specific about it, it is the False Prophet in that verse that does the “miracles”.
I was gonna suggest “weak” - good job
They just forgot the halo.
I do not worship nor sell my soul for any man.
Perhaps we will see a repeat of this historic occasion...
Acts 12:21 So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them.
Acts 12:22 And the people kept shouting, “The voice of a god and not of a man!”
Acts 12:23 Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died.
more like a second defecation... of Jimmah Carter malaise.
second coming of what...diareha
Doesn’t clay tend to crumble? : )
Newsweek: Obama is ‘The Second Coming’ of SATAN.
It’s like food poisoning. FIRST you throw up. You feel a little better until, SECOND, you have scorching diarrhea.
It would be a cosmic irony to have the “second coming” occur as the second “Obama coming” was giving his inaugural speech.
Anyone who stands near him at his coronation, yes, I said coronation, is at risk, in case there is a lightning bolt out of the blue.
My thought exactly
I wished someone would knock that arrogant pos occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave off his high horse
BLASPHEMY! . . is an accurate description of all this worship of him and Michelle. If he were worthy of anything; he would have put a stop to all that nonsense early on when it first started. - I assume he encourages it because he agrees with it.

Bring all sides together? You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Obama has blown any chance of a credible leader with his divisive rhetoric...punish your enemies at the polls, you didn’t build that, get revenge at the polls...
You cannot unburn the bridges, Obama.
Evan Thomas’s father was a Communist. Hence, the adoration.
