      Hi, AV, hope that your Thanksgiving Holiday was all good.

      As for this video, it was a comic parody. I am surprised that anyone would take this seriously. The conservatives had better be concerned about the Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, clowns not quite ready for primetime that are passing themselves off as responsible politicians. I have heard more from Bill Maher, Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck, Hannity and others regarding political commentary.

      The GOP had better start to soul searching instead of emphasizing sour grapes and limp d*** excuses, or they will be forever relegated to the side show act.

      Some of the more arrogant posters here seem to imply that all of us libs and progressives are misled, funny I said the same thing in 2004 when Bush received a second term and when this cowboy won in November 1980. The righties have lost and elections have consequences, lost is the word that replaces messiah.

      I have provided a little comic relief for the occasion, all the best, from BLUE Hawaii,  I think that it is funny and will probably have to be blown up to appreciate the captions.

    Obama's 'messianic' stature among liberals is no longer funny at all. His reelection is a ominous warning to all freedom loving Americans that the majority of Americans no longer cherish liberty as much as they love their free stuff. Barack Obama is the 'Messiah of Free Stuff', and both daddy and husband to millions of Americans.

    If that's how he feels, why shouldn't he express it. I personally find it no more or less annoying than some one saying the same thing about Jesus.

      Well, it is difficult to tell if he is kidding or not on the video. I certainly hope that it is given tongue in cheek.  If it truly annoys you when someone says it about Jesus, who has been accepted by different sects of Christianity for thousands of years as Christ and Savior, then it should bother you a thousand times more when they say it of someone living who is obviously not a God, or messiah.

        It bothers me about the same when anyone claims a mortal is a God, be it Caligula, Jesus or Betty White.

        Which is to say... it doesn't bother me a lot. People believe weird stuff.  That's their right.

              And I didn't hear any conservatives correcting the record by pointing out that their new poster girl for Obama handouts was benefiting from a Reagan-era program. You all were perfectly happy to spin her as a welfare queen whose vote Obama bought with a phone, in spite of the actual facts.

              And THAT is the real point. You have invented a caricature of the President and his supporters that is disconnected with reality, and spin everything you see to fit the caricature.

                Actually the subject is what Foxx said specifically about worshipping Obama and I just gave you one well known example, there are literally millions to the extent of teaching chidren to sing songs glorifying him or haven't you seen those videos. You can find many many obama zombies who wuldtotally agree with Foxx's quote if not literally in spirit and anyone who denies that is just out of touch wth reality.

    You are aware that Jamie Foxx is a comedian, right?

    Though the video is no longer available, I'm willing to wager that he said it ironically. Conservatives are pretty unintelligent in general, so it's no surprise that you're taking it the wrong way.

    And I'm not sure what "free stuff" Will is referring to. I certainly haven't received any free stuff from this administration. What am I supposed to get?

            Not just on a global scale, but on a U.S. scale as well.

            Compared to past U.S. presidents, President Obama is the most conservative democrat since 1945. This is according to an objective study of presidential political ideology conducted by University of Georgia professor Keith Poole: http://voteview.com/blog/?p=317

            He only looks farther to the left because conservatives have been moving steadily to the right.

      Ok, just watched.

      Still sounds like a joke to me. It's very "meta," which is why you don't get it.

      See, we in the reality-based community all know that whole "Obama Messiah" thing is a fabrication of the right. No sane person actually thinks of President Obama in messianic terms. Certainly not liberals, who are among the president's biggest critics.

      Comedian Jamie Foxx is making a joke about the conservative "Obama Messiah" belief. In other words, he's making fun of you conservatives. And you're falling for it, which makes the joke even funnier.

If everyone cannot make a joke about this video, see it for what it is, then there is no hope for an immediate fix in Washington because "We the People" cannot even get along.

    Gosh...how I hate to be a party-pooper...but....to those curious as to whether Jamie was joking?  Are YOU joking?  Of course he's not joking.   Black comedians may make fun of one another for comdey's sake (which in turn makes them $$)....but when it's as serious as politics & THE FIRST BLACK PREZ....blacks make no jokes.   If you're old enough....ever hear a CATHOLIC say a single negative thing about Kennedy?  No, you didn't.

        Surely, I have seen no "insulting nor derogatory" jokes made about the Prez, by black comics......I have seen some extremely funny "skits", and impersonations, done in good taste, just for laughs.....The comedy team of Key & Peele are an example.....check out their videos on You Tube......HILARIOUS, but they are almost COMPLIMENTARY to Obama, because they do skits of the President's Anger Translator (in reference to his calm and serious demeanor)......If people were paying attention, after Obama's first election....Jamie Foxx admitted to crying tears of overwhelming joy.
        I see no need for dems or reps....to use every and any mention of a political figure....ANY political figure....another opportunity to bash, crash and smash....   Yet, somehow it always happens.
        It appears beyond human capabilities for individuals to make a comment or simply speak one sentence, without ripping up an opposing side...........Main reason my husband and I are Independents.

    Calling all comparisons to Hitler logical fallacies is in itself, a logical fallacy.

    I would point out that I compared schoolchildren being taught to sing songs about a leader, not just to Hitler (they were), but also to Stalin and Mao, so Godwin does not apply. In any case, Godwin was exercising his right to be sarcastic.
