The bigger they are, the harder they fall. The media and the Obama campaign have succeeded in developing and elevating Obama to height of a deity. To his followers, he seems poised to conquer the world. But for those of us that know the truth about the man, we know it is only a matter of time before the myth meets the man – and it all falls apart.
The question isn’t if, it’s when. In my personal opinion, I believe that we will reach Obamyth Threshold shortly after the conventions. Historically, Republican candidates are down in the polls at this time of year, because people have only been hearing one side of the story – from the mainstream media. After the conventions, Republicans step up their game and release large numbers of media campaigns of all types. This is where they make up their deficit, and sometimes even win. This year is different. Obama is facing an alternative media (people like me and you) that is spreading the truth about him – before convention time. As a result, the Republican induced implosion may be much more dramatic than previous years, as they have yet another tool, one already hard at work, spreading the truth about Obama.
Of course, all plans can fail. It’s possible that Obama remains 1 point up by the end of the convention and the entire country goes on a political information strike ’til November. Even if disaster were to strike, the Obamyth Threshold is still inevitable. As Lincoln said, “You can’t fool all the people all the time”. It’s only a matter of time before enough people finally understand who Obama is. Let’s hope (and do more than hope) that the threshold is reached before November.
Let the myth meet the man, and let the whole world see it.
