Obama Portrayed As Saint In Latino Paper

From the New American Media:

Obama Portrayed as Saint in Latino Newspaper

El Planeta, Posted: Nov 08, 2008

BOSTON – Barack Obama is compared to a saint on the front page of the Nov. 6, 2008 edition of Boston’s weekly Spanish-language newspaper El Planeta. The frontpage article is titled, “San Martín de Obama” and includes 12 illustrations of Obama dressed in robes and holding a crucifix.

The article calls the Illinois senator’s quick rise to the presidency a “miracle.” “Obama has achieved miracle after miracle… feats worthy of a saint,” El Planeta reports. “We will see what this ‘saint’ is made of.”

Images depicting Mr. Obama as a saint have been knocking around the internet for some time:





And that is not even including the work of our watchdog media’s photographers:

Of course he could turn out to be one of the other kind:

plaster saint

a virtuous person; freq. in ironical use, a person who makes a show of virtue; a hypocrite.

Time will tell.

    A mere saint? He’s being demoted. I guess this is how they begin lowering expectations.

    The picture bottom right looks more like something you would see Stalin or Mao on. I guess that is fitting though.

    Is there such a thing as “The Religious Left”?

    All I’ve heard for years is that “The Religious Right” put George Bush in Power. How conservative candidates only appeal to “The Religious Right”. TRR this, TRR that.

    What I don’t recall is anyone ever comparing George Bush or even Ronald Reagan to the Messiah, or trying to elevate them to sainthood. When they were elected, you sure as hell never heard anyone running around in the streets hollering “Praise Jesus!” and if anyone had done that, we’d still be hearing about it.

    Nice to see that those BHO supporters aren’t clinging to their religion.
