Obama's "temple" revealed!

By
Real Estate Agent with Orlando Area Real Estate Services

Yes it will soon be time to anoint the Messiah - and what better place to do that in than a "temple" (the description used by Reuters I might add). Obama temple

This leaked picture from Congressional Quarterly and reprinted here via a link at Glennbeck.com shows the "temple" or if you are feeling really generous, a "White House" setting.

Perhaps somebody should tell this candidate that he hasn't been elected yet!!

The arrogance is incredible, but perhaps understandable considering how long the mainstream media has been bowing down at his feet and getting tingles up their own legs!

Wouldn't it be spectacular if Bill Clinton had the guts to stand up tonight and repeat the famous and less than generous comments he made about Obama during the primary campaign?

Anyway, for those of you who have been waiting for the alter, here it is!

You might have to correct yourself, Simon.  I'm not sure Obama has said anything about his race. 

I just got into this conversation with 2 different people over the past 24 hours and although I have read that he refers to himself as black, I have not heard it from his mouth.

Mike - I urge you to find a better example.  While neither scenario is good, voting for someone because of race isn't as vile as NOT voting for someone because of race.

We need to get away from the whole race discussion. Twice this week I have been called a racist because I am against Obama.. This is helping noone I am against Obama because I am pro-life.

Nothing to correct Tchaka - unless you wish to correct yourself. From ABC News of August 1:

Sen. Barack Obama's chief strategist conceded that the Democratic presidential candidate was referring to his race when he said Republicans were trying to scare voters by suggesting Obama "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."

Of course the fact that no one on the Republican side has ever said anything like that lead John McCain's camp to say the following from the same ABC report:

"The comment had triggered a charge Thursday from Sen. John McCain's campaign manager that Obama had "played the race card... from the bottom of the deck."

Tchaka - I know we disagree on that, but prefering one candidate over the other because of skin color is racist.

What has this got to do with the Temple of Obama? Can anyone tell me this is not over the top. Even Tchaka has to agree on this one...maybe not.

Simon - I am aware of the quote you pasted, but that still begs the question as to what race he considers himself.  What that quote does is eliminate white.

Mike - Preferring one candidate over another base on skin color is by definition racist, we don't disagree on that.  But I might have to refer you to my blog which generated a lot of heat.  I won't go into details, what I will say is that your example would have been more accurate if you compared the 8% to the percentage of blacks who would not vote for McCain solely because he's white.

Nicholas - I agree, this has nothing to do with the temple.  I don't think it's over the top.  Now if he had hot women in Roman or Greek garb and olive branches in their hair waving at the crowd, perhaps that's taking it one step too far.

Simon - What are you talking about? Where is the temple? Why not just stick to the issues?

I mean, there was a picture of Sarah Palin taken from above the podium that looked like she was standing in the middle of a s-w-a-t*** giving the salute. Fortunately, the "liberal" media outlet that had the picture realized what it looked like a took it off the website in minutes. Only a crazy person would even give that credence; but giving it credence is as silly as all of this Obama Messiah talk.

All of these comments are just sour grapes - reminds me of slacker kids in school who picked on the kids who actually studied and did what they were supposed to.

For the people who say they don't know what he stands for - the information is on his website and has been for months - or perhaps you can search for the text of his speech - if you can't or won't read it, there's no helping you.

Hi janice - your fame precedes you. Yes he is not the Messiah. SOmeone should tell him that before he again tells the world 9as he did the night he beat Clinton) that "this is the moment when the seas began to fall and the planet began to heal". Yep - he does not think he is the messiah.

Well, my first mistake was to try to find the speech based on the quote you provided. I searched the news sites, alas, the only sites I could find referencing the quote were the neo-con ones.

So, I finally found the text of the speech, and Obama was talking about us, all of us, the American peopple working together to slow global warning - you know the rising of the ocean is caused by global warming, right? Or maybe all the scientists have it wrong?

So, in the interest of those pesky things like fact and truth, here's the excerpt from the speech by Obama June 3, 2008.

But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people. Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on Earth. This was the moment - this was the time - when we came together to remake this great nation so that it may always reflect our very best selves, and our highest ideals. Thank you, God Bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America.

You are of course looking in the wrong place. it was the night he beat Clinton. I think that was early June. This is the DIRECT QUOTE from the Messiah: "This is the moment when the rise of the oceans begin to slow and our planet began to heal."

Simon, perhaps you should try actually reading my comments - it has the date as well as the direct quote.

Simon wrote (my responses are in bold): You are of course looking in the wrong place. it was the night he beat Clinton (um, yeah, Simon - read comment post where I clearly showed the date June 3, 2008). I think that was early June (read my post). This is the DIRECT QUOTE from the Messiah: "This is the moment when the rise of the oceans begin to slow and our planet began to heal."

try reading my comments again. I'll make it easier for you by reposting it and highligting the direct quote.

But I also face it with limitless faith in the capacity of the American people.

Simon ~ there is just NO showing the blind what they can not (CHOSE NOT) to see! Even if Obama HAD something to do with "healing" the planet, just by him saying that it would begin with his nomination makes him sound like he's a god or something. He is such an ARROGANT & POMPOUS little man. He knew EXACTLY what he was insinuating by putting up that type of backdrop.

He had not one ounce of COOTH (that's TACTto all ya'll not suthern) about him.

I honestly don't think there is anything to worry about in this election. I used to think there were a lot of people who were falling for this guy but there really isn't. The media wanted us to believe it so that we'd go with who they were telling us was the most popular guy but the more he talks the more people he loses. It looks like the only people he will have voting for him are still fortunately outnumbered by the rest of us.

I will be blogging about this soon, but I'm going to be offering free rides to the voting location in my area come election time.

If real estate is slow in your area, what better way to use your time than to make sure the right guy gets elected by helping people get to the voting booth?

The rhetoric (on both sides) astounds me, but it shouldn't...

Tell me about what your stance and practice and implementation is and will be regarding the following:

-  The Economy

-  Health Care

-  The Price of Fuel

-  Domestic Policy

-  Foreign Policy

-  One term senators receiving healthy pensions and health care... for life. (ok, I am steering the wheel with this one... a tad;-)

-  Taxes, of any kind.

-  Education

And that's the short list.  I'm not trying to steer the wheel (not yet at least) but there's a list and I checked it twice.  No particular order at all.

As far as race, religion, children, slanderous drama of any kind... I don't care.  It's not my concern.  My concern is the above, I want to know about all that.

Thank you!

 

Jason Sardi

 

(pssst, I didn't forget about the housing industry... but try me.  Before that though, answer the above.  Drama does us little good.)

It is one thing as PROFESSIONALS to discuss the political issues as mentioned in Jason Sardi's comment but all this mud slinging serves NO PURPOSE.

 You can disagree with every Political policy Obama stands for BUT some of you are waging the most Ungodly attacks imaginable. Aren't YOU the ones Playing God making the Bold judgmental statements you are about this man?

Which one of you has crawled into his skin and walked in His shoes to make such outrageous comments on such subjects as him being Muslim, non Christian and he thinks he's the Messiah?

To you who are "claiming" to be Christian and behaving this way. Explain to me, if you can how Jesus agrees with what you are doing to Obama.

Stick to the Facts people. We are educated professionals. I don't call slanderous non christian behavior "letting off steam" Take a cold shower.

Tchaka- He says so in his memoirs, the two books he wrote. It states it quite clearly in his books.
