I hope this video is dubbed or a fake.

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.
If you think that's bad you should see this.

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.
I don't know one single person who "worships" Obama, and that is in the US and Canada.
Well you either need to get out more or need to define worship like the rest of us because by my experience they are all over the place, the media thinks he can do no wrong and I'msure you knowthe Obama Phone girl - they all worship him - you mean Obama doesn't send a tingle up your leg?
I think you mean the Reagan Phone girl: http://thinkprogress.org/election/2012/ … bama-phone
And supporting a President because you benefited from a 30-year-old government program is hardly the same thing as worship, by any tortured stretch of the definition of the word.
Reagan phoone? I don't hear the obama zombie calling it a reagan phone - that is the whole point, thank you for making it, Obama worshippers blindy credit him with being the giver of everything.
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.
Well, I guess I disagree with you about that. Don't use ignorant people to argue your case, they exist on every side.
You said it not me, the obama worshippers are ignorant people andwe agree on that. BTW we are talking about Obama worshippers, not the other side. Nice try at changing the subject.
Actually, the subject is Jamie Foxx and what he said.
And the opposition seems to have found one woman who is ill informed and is an idiot, she is the only one I keep hearing about.
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.
I personally don't believe in worshiping anything or anyone. But I don't give a damn what other people do if it doesn't hurt anyone. Unlike some so-called libertarians and small government conservatives.
In the parallel universe inhabited by Fox News and Glenn Beck, yes.
Got any surveys or studies to back up your claim of Obama worship here in this universe?
You don't need a study when you can witness it throughout our society, in our homes, schools and on the liberal media shows - try this on for size http://www.prisonplanet.com/school-chil … ssons.html

I don't see anything about the messiah in having a photograph of the President of the United States next to a flag, other than the person writing the article. Or singing a song mentioning the President. I seem to recall there were songs sung in honor of George W. Bush in schools.

Oh my, you're onto us. I start my day awakened by my custom Obamalarm shouting "Forward." I leap from bed wearing my Super Messiah Obamajamas. My feet, encased in my red-white-and-blue Obama sunrise logo socks, land on my Squishy Soft-as-Liberals plush area rug, a designer label product of the government-subsidized commie co-op, OFA (Obama's Free Stuff). I then call in sick using my free cell phone, because who needs a job when I can get all the "Obama's Free Stuff" I want, which gives me even more time to worship at my Obamaltar.
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?
"But I don't give a damn what other people do if it doesn't hurt anyone."
Neither do I, but when people vote for someone because they view him as a messiah, we will all suffer. I sense a disaster in store for America.
Why? Because one moderate centrist beat another moderate centrist in an election?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Obama a Moderate ROTF HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH Oh my, Whew, Thanks Scott, I needed a good laugh
On a global scale, Obama is very much in the middle.
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.
If someone is dumb enough to do that, they can't be helped.
Ditto those who won't vote for Obama because they seriously think he is the anti-Christ.
I thought Mighty Mom or Habee would have come by and make sarcastic comments. I posted this for everyone to laugh at but it appears it ruffled some feathers. Where are you guys, save me, I need a laugh.
Scott, I went back and the video worked for me but I saw a note that it will not work in all browsers. They put another video link in their for those who could not see the original one.
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.
Wow, wouldn't it be amazing if a mainly comic actor was joking?
I am glad you saw it but it is you that does not get it. I posted it for a laugh, not a debate. But you all went off on each other. 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. People need to get over themselves, take chill pills again.
We'll see what folks get when they worship false idols. The day that I label someone "Lord and Savior", they will be a hell of a lot smarter than one Barack Obama. You can put lipstick on a pig and add a pretty dress but in the end it's nothing but pork. Obama is a trainwreck and the country is not far behind....just keep watching. ~WB
I wish the American Taliban would stop plastering the word "American" on everything they do. The recent elections just told them where they stand.
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.
Scott, I agree 100% in your explanation of what Jamie is doing..........and I'll join your Betty White prayer group.
I don't know about you but I have seen lots of black stand up comedians making jokes about Obama.
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.
I don't make it a practice to get into ADORING politicians....That's utter nonsense.
I seriously hope you're being ironic here.
And regarding Catholics and Kennedy, try talking to some Cubans over 50.
... I'm honestly trying to figure out if you're joking. I hope so.
Thousand words.....The clip of Jamie, appears to me...to be Jamie using sarcasm to "jab" the far right for originally creating the belief that liberals worship and adore Obama.....as in....."OK, you Right wing looneys want to make us look like Obama fanatics?....let's play the game." (Maybe a passive/aggressive or comic/seriousness statement) Does this help you figure out what I was saying? After all, this is merely my take on the clip.....only Jamie knows what he was conveying. Correct?
"Or singing a song mentioning the President."
Schoolchildren were also taught to sing tributes to Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, and we all know how that turned out.
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.
Oh, right. My bad. I didn't realize that comparing Obama to Hitler didn't count if you compared him to Mao and Stalin at the same time.
Godwin's law doesn't say the reference is a fallacy
"Oh, right. My bad. I didn't realize that comparing Obama to Hitler didn't count if you compared him to Mao and Stalin at the same time."
Liberal snark acknowledged.
It's called a joke................Nothing more, nothing less

It's possible that Foxx, who performed at President Obama's inauguration, became disenchanted with the president. Many Americans did.
I mean, in the four years Obama's been in office, how may good movies -- make that how many movies period -- has Foxx starred in???
No wonder he's making fun of his former idol!!
The tape is cut to make sure no one gets the fact that Jamie Fox was joking and then walks out and talks in the direction of Michelle Obama, who was in attendance. I guess it must be illegal to joke around here.
It's amazing to see how quickly the feathers are ruffled at the mere mention of his name.
It's a joke, lighten up.
I agree. this "left" and "liberal" categorizing is inaccurate when it comes to people voting democrat. It is a dying classification (and generation) as the majority of people have come closer in thought when it comes to politics.

Why?? And yes, I know most conservatives support this, but I do not. How many weapons and soldiers do we really need to protect ourselves? Aren't the rest just "overkill"? The left screamed about Bush's military spending. Why are they giving Obama a pass? Don't you think some of that...
