And even Jesus didn’t have publicity like this guy.
On his 100th day in office, President Obama will be “crowned” in messianic imagery at New York City’s Union Square.
Artist Michael D’Antuono’s painting “The Truth” – featuring Obama with his arms outstretched and wearing a crown of thorns upon his head – will be unveiled on April 29 at the Square’s South Plaza.
Just stop with the Messiah imagery already. Barack Obama is not the Messiah. As a matter of fact, he cannot even be considered a very good president . . . yet. It’s been three months, people! What has he done???
According to a statement released about the portrait, “The 30″ x 54″ acrylic painting on canvas depicts President Obama appearing much like Jesus Christ on the Cross: atop his head, a crown of thorns; behind him, the dark veil being lifted (or lowered) on the Presidential Seal. But is he revealing or concealing, and is he being crucified or glorified?” (H/T – WND)
I have to admit that this First 100 Days nonsense is just that: nonsense. What has the man done to warrant such grandiose praise and celebration? Hell, he hasn’t even filled all of the positions in his administration yet! (There are still 542 empty appointments.) Stop being a rock star and a “messiah,” and start doing the work the American people elected you to do!
Of course, if Obama would do his job instead of appearing on The Tonight Show, posing for magazine covers, and golfing during a swine flu pandemic, he would probably get a lot more done.
I’m just sayin’.
