Today’s daily devotes three pages, an editorial and a Benson cartoon to the Second Coming Of Obama — since his January inauguration. The front page is bannered with his exhortation to the assembled Arizona State University grads and their fainting families to “Change the course of history.”
The first paragraph begins with gushing adoration by describing Obama’s “eloquent message” and his “witty response” to swaggering university president Michael Crow’s stinging embarrassment over the withholding of an honorary degree for Obama’s lack of a “body of work.” After recovering from the snafu, the school quickly backpedaled, naming a continuing scholarship in his honor.
The Leftist Obamessiah said Americans could benefit from “a fundamental change of perspective and attitude” for America, causing approximately 130 people to feel faint and dozens other to require hospitalization — one of whom suffered a seizure upon hearing such words from a sitting U.S. President.
J. D. Hayworth, a former 6-term Republican Arizona Congressman and popular KFYI-AM radio host, led a crowd at Tempe Marketplace where he did a remote broadcast of his political talk show.
