Mark Hemingway, staff writer for Danish publication Politiken, asserts The Islamic Boy in the Oval Office is greater than Galilee’s Jesus.

Remember the Beatles? Didn’t they claim the same for their elevated position on the planet? Ooops. Didn’t happen.

Barack Hussein Obama’s miracles?

Here is Hemingway’s list: “the right of every American not to be financially shipwrecked when their health fails” as well as the “biggest ever financial support package in America’s history, a major disarmament agreement and the quickest-ever re-establishment of American reputation.”

After all, Jewish Jesus only miracle-dazzled for a comparative few. Muslim Obama is caring for millions upon millions. That then, per Hemingway, makes Obama what his mob hysteriacs claimed him to be—the anointed one.

By the way just as an aside, in Hebrew that term “anointed one” means “Messiah” and in Greek means “Christos” or “Christ.” So Hemingway, particularly for agnostics trying to figure out theology, may be on to something by pointing to the Koran-devotee as the Messiah/Christos. Of course, to hold to that is to discount the messianic claims of the historical Jesus.

There are those who query that Hemingway may be writing satirically. If so, he should at least give us a hint.

But if he is not, then the obvious question is that this Danish staff pen should ponder if Obama is of more significance than Mohammed. That would be a winner enthralling.

Hemingway goes on to state that both Obama and Jesus came from “humble beginnings” and helped the “poor and vulnerable.” However, Jesus still comes in second. Obama beats all records by being bigger and grander.

Never mind that the Obamangst surrounding a “health care” stack mass rivaling the Empire State Building, a mass no one understands and few have read, will bring down the sick and weak. It will put on wait lists those panting for immediate medical attention plus bankrupt small employers unable to underwrite health policies.

Never mind that the U.S. masses are throwing anger darts at Pennsylvania Avenue’s health implode. Only a handful agrees with Hemingway’s legendary spin.

Never mind that the anointed one’s financial lift goes to his cronies and government employees kissing up to the messianic throne through another election.

Never mind that the climate warm religion conclave did anything but place the anointed one upon a global pedestal.

In other words, those in the know ask what Danish drape has Hemingway been burrowing under lately?
