Obama the Great Leader

The principle of the Great Leader was established in 1917 when Vladimir Lenin came to power in Russia after the Bolshevik coup.  With personal control over the Russian media and police, Lenin built his cult of personality and annihilated his opponents. 
When Lenin died in 1924, his grateful nation resurrected the ancient Egyptian ritual of having his body mummified. His remains are still propped up against the Kremlin wall in Moscow.

Adolf Hitler brought the Great Leader principle to a new height, one that will, God willing, never again be attempted. Hitler not only controlled the German media and police but he used sophisticated sensory techniques to control the minds and emotions of the German masses. Both Lenin and Hitler utilized conspiracy theories against scapegoats to inflame their followers and consolidate their power.

The Great Leader principle was emulated by Lenin’s and Hitler’s ideological successors, Josef Stalin, Mao tse Tung, Fidel Castro, Kim Il Sung, Ho Chi Minh, and every Communist dictator ever since. The cult of personality runs hand in hand with the utopian goal of creating an earthly paradise. The leader, who is without exception anti-religious, is presented as the savior and redeemer of his country. In every case, the Great Leader centralized authority which caused poverty and in some cases the murder of millions. The Great Leader always lives in luxury off the expropriated wealth of others.
Less radical Great Leaders imitated Lenin and Hitler including Benito Mussolini, Francisco Franco, Kemal Ataturk, Juan Peron, Abdel Nasser, Saddam Hussein and Muammar al-Gadhafi. Many African, Asian, and Latin American leaders were influenced by Lenin and Hitler as they centralized power under the cult of personality.
Americans have always rejected the Great Leader principle. The American idea of leadership was expressed in the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

For Americans, rights come from the creator, not from the state as personified by the Great Leader. This makes America the exceptional nation. This universal principle is available to all nations because it is self-evident and true. George Washington was respected for his accomplishments not worshiped for who he was. Many on the left have tried to venerate Franklin D. Roosevelt and, after his assassination, John F. Kennedy as Great Leaders but the deification has had limited success. The left often venerates its own leaders. Perhaps this tendency might emanate from lack of faith in God.

President Barack Obama is the closest thing to a Great Leader than has ever occurred before in America. Never before has an American President had such a worshipful following. Leftists, his core supporters, support him for understandable reasons as his authoritarian policies and his specific and identifiable goals to transform America match their agenda.

Yet what makes Obama close to being a Great Leader is his support among well-meaning and moderate Americans, many of whom are young people, who are drawn to his demagogic promises of hope and change and other aspects of his rhetoric that constitute classic Great Leader talk.

The Obama phenomenon is exacerbated by his mediocre record as president, mediocre as the term is conventionally defined. Particularly telling is the Orwellian phenomena of Obama railing against bailouts and corporate corruption while covering up billion dollar scandals at MF Global, Goldman Sacks, and Morgan Stanley. Obama railing against mortgage fraud while covering up for MERS. Obama complaining about the rich while, in 2008, receiving more financial support from Wall Street than any presidential campaign in history.

Governor Mitt Romney is a more conventional leader, one who is cut of classic American cloth. He has no cult following, he makes no pretensions regarding changing the world, and he obviously has no major media mandarins crafting an image for him as a “Great Leader.” Indeed, the main criticism the media has of Romney is that he is not well liked. Governor Mitt Romney and his running mate, seven term congressman Paul Ryan, are normal people who seem to understand the American ethos of rugged individualism. They get the idea that rights come from the creator, not from the state headed by a divine and transforming Great Leader.
