The delirious media are gushing over a photo of a shirtless Barack Obama, The One, in Hawaii. According to the reporters he’s already equal to Lincoln in Presidential greatness, AND now he’s the leading male cover model. He’s everything! He’s wonderful!
This scripture, Isaiah 9:6, is meant to be extravagant praise of Jesus, the Messiah, the priceless gift from God to humanity:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Some of the “reports” in the media look more like this scripture than anything that could be called “news.” The downside for Obama is no mere human could possibly measure up to the expectations the media have planted in the minds of voters.
