We are drowning in the adulation of The One.
Thousands, nay millions, are flocking to Washington to hail the new Messiah!
And that's just the news crew for the BBC!
Seriously, never has so much been expected from someone with so little experience.
Remember, he was a senator for just a couple of years, and not noted for achieving much.
Yet, because he gives a few good speeches, though I recall a few stumbles during the campaign, due to the failure of his autocure, he has been put on such a great pedestal.
And it is such a great pedestal, even the Democrats have been busy trying to downplay expectation.
But what about the audacity of a man, living on such hype, that already he is modelling himself on Abraham Lincoln, one of the greatest of Amercian presidents.
And this, barely before the man has assumed office.
Peter McKay of the Daily Mail is not impressed.
Now, I don't belittle Obama's achievements. He can be proud of achieving office, even though there's probably many a Clinton supporter still angry at the way he cheated his way to the nomination, as those old PUMAs claimed.
And while Obama is not the choice I wanted, I wish him well. Indeed, even George Bush wishes Obama well.
For Obama now has so much on his plate. Israel, Iran and Iraq, the wider war against Islamic terror. Then, there is the economy, and with so many from the Clinton era working for him, the Clintonistas who caused the financial problems, well, we can only guess how Obama might fare now with such a grave crisis.
Like I say, I wish Obama well. The problems he faces at home and abroad are so great that they will affect, if not engulf us all. Thus, despite my reservations about Obama; for our wealth, our peace and for our freedoms, we should all wish Obama well this week.
Even if he is not the messiah, but a rather inexperienced and, lightweight and naughty boy!
UPDATE: My co-blogger Barnsley Bill has reservations about Obama too.
And here's the Onion looking at the Inauguartion ceremony.
