Question: What do Britney Spears, Paris Hilton … and B. HUSSEIN Obama (BHO) have in common?  Answer: All three are celebrities and a fascination to the lapping media.  All three are examples of famous people who are famous for being famous but with no real accomplishments.


So … if BHO is merely a celebrity within the class of Paris and Britney, should the presidency of the United States of America and the leadership of the free world be handed to him on the basis of his star power?  


I have another question: What do Charlton Heston as Moses and BHO as a world celebrity have in common?  Answer: As y’all know, the biblical Moses parted the seas for his people, so they can go home to their Promised Land.  Of course, we have not seen BHO part the seas yet, but he’s talking like HE CAN, so we, the lowly and the wretched throngs, can also be delivered to our own Promised Land. 


He said HE CAN stop the WAR and that in a jiffy, HE CAN bring the troops home.  He said HE CAN talk to all the leaders of the enemies of America and pacify them with his charm.  He said HE CAN unify the red states and the blue states of America into one red, white and blue color of the flag of the United States of America. 


He said HE CAN balance the budget and make the budget deficit disappear.  He said HE CAN give universal health care to all Americans, without raising our taxes.  He said a lot of things that he said HE CAN.  He even said HE CAN stop global warming.  Can you imagine that?


He also said that HE CAN solve America’s energy crisis and the rising gas prices.  He said that the “offshore drilling” for oil that Sen. John McCain endorses is merely a “gimmick” and that the real solution to the rising gas prices is the “tire gauge.”  Yeah, that’s what he said.  By keeping our car tires inflated, we all CAN keep gas prices down low.


Hey, y’all remember that day during one of Mr. Bush’s 2004 campaign speeches, when he asked America: “Got wood?”  Now it’s BHO’s turn to ask America: “Got tire gauge?”  I am telling ya, these two are SAME-SAME.


The difference between them is that Mr. Bush claimed he can talk to God and God talks to him and it was God who told him to invade Iraq.  With BHO, he thinks he’s the Messiah.  Or Moses.  Because he said HE CAN … do it all and deliver us to our own Promised Land. 


Don’t mean to sound like a heretic, but I have one more question: What do BHO and Jesus Christ have in common?  Answer: Well, they don’t really have anything in common.  As we all know, Christ is the Messiah.  BHO merely thinks he is.   


BHO, CNN’S ANOINTED ONE: When BHO came into America’s consciousness, people asked: “Who is he?”  Before he became known nationally as a presidential candidate, he was locally known in Chicago as a state senator of Illinois who had a penchant for voting “present” during legislative sessions.  He was also known at that time as having a close association with Tony Rezko, that felon and notorious slumlord of the city of Chicago.  It was also during this time when he sat week after week in the pews of that “Southside” Chicago church to listen to Rev. Jeremiah Wright rant and curse “White America.” 


Now, thanks to the pawing left print media and mostly Black news analyst kuno of CNN and the left-leaning biased talk heads of NBC and MSNBC, like Brian Williams, David Gergen, Andrea Mitchell, Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman, BHO metamorphosed into a national figure, who can walk the walk and talk the talk of the Messiah.  They anointed him as the ONE.  And he began to believe that he’s the one.  Now people asked: “Who does he thinks he is?


PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, THE BOOK: My favorite columnist, Maureen Dowd of the New York Times has the perfect answer to that question.  She said in her column last week: “The odd thing is that Obama bears a distinct resemblance to the most cherished hero in chick-lit history.  The senator is a modern incarnation of the clever, haughty, reserved and fastidious Mr. Darcy.


“Like the leading man of Jane Austen and Bridget Jones, OBAMA CAN, as Austen wrote, draw ‘the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien.  He was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity; for he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased.’”


Yes, indeed, ABOVE … everyone else.  Prayed to, pawed at, like a god.  Like a wannabe Messiah.


A SPEECH IN MISSOURI: Not too long ago, Obama was in Missouri to deliver a speech.  Speaking evenly, with a touch of humor, to a nearly all-white audience, he told them:  “What they’re going to try is to make you scared of me.  You know, he’s not patriotic enough.  He’s got a funny name.  You know, he doesn’t look like those presidents on those dollar bills, you know.  He’s risky.’”


As Ronald Reagan used to say: “there you go again.”  With all due respect, Senator BHO, sir, but it’s true, that’s how many people perceive you.  You might think that you’re the one, but you ain’t.  Also, why do you have to keep on insinuating your race?  People can see that you’re BLACK.  Well, I suppose you’re not completely black, but only half and half.  But why do you keep on introducing the race factor and playing the race card into your campaign?  Then you turn around and accuse Senator John McCain of playing the race card.  It’s you who’s very adept in playing the race card … Sir BHO.


A DIALOGUE WITH A READER: A reader from Virginia asked me: “You had wanted Hillary to be the Democratic nominee and have been lambasting – nay, ridiculing – Obama since he became the obvious presumptive nominee.  Now would BHO be palatable to you if he chose Hillary as his VP?”


I answered: “Even if Hillary will run as BHO’s VP, I still will not vote for him.  I don’t trust this man.  I think he’s liar, like Mr. Bush.  BHO have said repeatedly that voting for Sen. John McCain for president would be a vote for a Bush’s third term.  That’s not true at all.  It’s the other way ‘round.  A vote for BHO is a vote for a Bush’s third term.  And that’s because, they’re alike.  Both, as I said, are big time liars.  And both have a Messiah complex.  That’s dangerous.  Anyway, I don’t think Obama will pick Hillary as his VP.  I heard Oprah is his choice.


“Seriously, I think the surest way McCain can win this election is if Hillary becomes his VP.  The Democrat Party then will get split in the middle, with the other half voting surely for the McCain/Hillary ticket.  Ms. Hillary has 18-million voters under her belt that she can deliver to McCain.  My wife and I are both registered Democrats, but we made up our minds to vote Republican this year.  We don’t want a president who has a Messiah complex . . .”  JJ
