It is interesting to observe the sense of betrayal on display as the elites awake to the reality that the One is human after all:
So we’re witnessing a number of liberal and conservative elites scapegoating Obama for their own foolishness in deifying him. I say “scapegoating” because no one has a reasonable right to rely on another person’s self-portrayal as messianic. If they bought into his claims to personal transcendence, then they are more culpable than he is, and their anger is transferred hostility, redirected from themselves to the now-exposed mortal.
The elites’ investing of supernatural hope in Obama was a product of their worldview, which diminishes, perhaps even erases, God’s role and looks to man for salvation. Their subsequent deflation was inevitable because no mere human being is transcendent. ~ David Limbaugh
Kinda puts things in perspective, doesn’t it?
