    What has this man done? Some people are just stupid I guess.:mad:


    Poll: Obama More Popular Than Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

    President Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.

    John Lennon once claimed the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. Now President Obama has evidence that he's more popular than both.

    Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.

    Jesus came in second on a list that includes God, Mahtma Gandhi and George Washington.

    Other historic or notable figures making the top 10 were Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa.

    Participants named the heroes randomly instead of being shown or read a list of people to choose from. The poll was conducted online between January 12 and 19, 2009.

    At the 16th spot in the poll, George Washington, Bill Clinton and Colin Powell tied.

    Other politicians who made the poll's top 25 include Hillary Clinton (12), FDR (13), Condoleezza Rice (12) and Sarah Palin (21).

    God ranked 11th, between Mother Teresa and Hillary Clinton.

    Of the multiple reasons participants gave to explain their choices of heroes, the ones most cited is, "Doing what's right regardless of personal consequences" with 89 percent, "Not giving up until the goal is accomplished" with 83 percent and "Doing more than what other people expect of them," with 82 percent. Also popular were "Overcoming adversity" and "Staying level-headed in a crisis."

    In the first Harris Poll asking this question in 2001, Jesus came in first, followed by the Rev. King, Powell, John F. Kennedy and Mother Teresea.

    Obama joked last year at a roast that contrary to rumors, he was not born in a manger but on the planet Krypton. Apparently, Obama is even more popular than Superman, who didn't make the cut.

    It really is alarming, we don't know diddly squat about this person, yet the American public has put him in office and raised him to superhuman status. I think Americans have been watching too much television and have lost touch with reality.

    It woulds be poetic justice to offer a worthless Obama shaped fruit loop for auction to be paid for with useless US dollars.

    :D:D I thought we have a president that is a fruit loop, with the rest of the box in the Senate and House.

    It is truly a crazy bunch running the country right now. I was just watching VH1, History of Rock on TV and looking at the crowd at the Monterey Folk Festival in the '60's and thinking...these people are in charge now. Sad.

    We're a nation of idiots, pure and simple. Sometimes I listen to what people say in public and think I must be from a different planet than they are, judging by how childish or brutally stupid what they're saying seems... :(
