Newsweek Editor Fellates God-President

Evan Thomas of Newsweek has exposed himself as being unable to hold the remotest objectivity needed to function as the editor of a news publication, declaring his unseemly and frankly creepy admiration of the President while simultaneously denigrating America:

Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obama's had, really, a different task We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he – he has a very different job from – Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is 'we are above that now.' We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something – I mean in a way Obama's standing above the country, above – above the world, he's sort of God.

Michelle Obama would LOL at this crap, and she married the man.

It is no secret that Newsweek long ago forfeited any claim to being an objective source of news, but this latest fanboy worship by Evan Thomas is simply shameful. It shatters any illusion that the magazine is capable of being anything other than an Obama propaganda device, and that Thomas is dangerously too biased to serve as a a competent and objective editor.

Newsweek is losing money and purposefully retargeting to lose even more. If their goal is make their employees radioactive while bankrupting themselves, I'd say that Thomas is doing exactly what they need.

Update: The Anchoress aims higher—literally— and suggests a higher oral interface between the President and a media latching on to his man-teats.

Holy guacamole! Is this man insane? And I find it almost impossible to believe that even Chris Mathews wouldn't push back a bit from that moronic declaration. Bush said he prayed to God and was lambasted as a loon and zealot. This puke declares Obama IS GOD?!?!?!!????!?! I had to watch the video, I thought your quote was a joke!

It's hard wired into humans to believe. The lapdog media, along with academia and other elitists, have long since abandoned any faith that requires them to refrain from any carnal pleasure. So they substitute one of the popular superstitions, Astrology, LGM, Global Warming/Climate Change or Obamaism. They laugh at churchgoers and scorn any expression of faith while worshipping their little tin gods.

Mr. Thomas sees his god on television. Obama sees his in the mirror.

I think it was Lenin who commented on the value of "Useful Idiots". Thomas doesn't even rise to the value of useful--he's just an idiot. But it is apparent that Newsweek at least (and I think Time also) has decided to exclusively do "The Full Lewinsky" on the New Messiah.

Evan better remember to get his blue dress cleaned.

I read an applicable phrase at some point in my life. If I remember correctly, it went something like,"Thou shall have no other Gods before Me". Of course that was so yesterday and supposedly carved in stone by this "invisible" God's finger. And no one has ever seen the old God anyway. Now this new God... well He's right here in front of us and we see Him in all His majesty and the miraculous works perfomed by His mighty hand every day!
/s... I hope God understands sarcasm

My sophisticated assessment of Evan Thomas?

"He's the jailhouse bitch of the MSM."

I'm sure Evan takes great pride in what he does, especially since he's so good at it that he can charge twice as many smokes as the rest of his cell-block competition.

That's just hilarious, nordlinger. Any objection to the deification of the community crack-smoker?

While Evan will be unemployed shortly, he knows that Obama knows of his man crush. For many liberals, that's all that matters in their insignificant lives.

It's much like one of the jocks many of the girls in my class fawned over. He was so tall and dreamy, they wet their panties every time he walked by them in the halls at school. Of course, the rumors about the "slapping around" of his girlfriends were always discounted, including the black eyes and bruises. Even when there was firmer evidence, the wanna-be girlfriends just knew that it was something stupid the girl had done. They wouldn't be treated that way because they'd love him better.

One after another would suffer his abuse, some even realizing his distaste for contraceptives and learning the excitement of "choice" in good liberal form. After all, what's an abortion when your boyfriend was able to pleasure himself without restrictions?

Indeed, it's not hard to understand why so many like Evan would die to be abused by Obama.

Thomas' father was a Socialist. Maybe Thomas really does believe Obama is godlike - in the way that Stalin and Mao were godlike.

So much for the "objectivity" of the 4th Estate, eh?

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.

You know after a few lines of coke I would often be thinking that too.

The press is no longer a "free press" it's just the media wing of the democratic party.

So is there any truth to the trumour that Brian Williams "went down" on POTUS Obama ?

Reminds me of Pravda or The Völkischer Beobachter ("Völkisch Observer", or less strictly "People's Observer") was the newspaper of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP or Nazi Party) from 1920.

It's enough for me to not want to be on a plane, train or automobile anywhere near this dude in that if/when the Almighty, Heavenly Father, Type One Each decides to execute the "Smite" option, I can only hope it's while he's alone so as to avoid 'collateral dmage.'

I do not approve of the language in this title. shameful.

You object to the language in the title, Mike.

I'll keep objecting to the complete abdication of integrity in the fourth estate.

Happy was alive, a brave move, can not lose confidence, as long as you do, and always have their own world, not to give up, never give up. At the same time, good people will give others encouragement to others filling in when others need help, help others. When a friend's success in the blessings of friends, there is no jealousy, not to harbor bitter resentment, remember everyone is in fact very good. Let us work together to have a better world.
