A True Messiah
Seems to me that you can either be cynical and disbelieving about Barack Obama or you have to buy him completely.
His power is in his integrity and it shines through every word that he speaks. Again, it is easy to say that they are just words but you, I and every human being knows in their soul when words have value.
The man is awe inspiring. In simple, direct statements he cuts through the murk and mud which mankind creates for itself. He is the man for our time, delivered to us apparently as an exact solution for our problems, he reveals the wisdom which all of us understand. He delivers huge confidence, trust and belief.
There will be others desperate to catch him out, to discover some inconsistency or failing. I doubt that they will succeed.
We are in the presence of greatness and we should value our good fortune.
