Political Fallout: OBAMA is Bigger Than Jesus
Excerpted from this post at Political Fallout
... OBAMA is bigger than Jesus on My Space, not Our Space. Although, given Obama's phenomenal rise of late, one could argue that he is giving the Savior a run for his money -- at least in the world of politics. ... So how would Jesus stack up against Obama in the '08 Presidential Race? Political Heavyweight Tale of the Tape ... 4. Reach: Obama: Although Barack has been blessed with long, lanky arms, his message has just begun to reach out and extend to Americans and the global community. Although, keep an eye out for his political right jab. Jesus: Has already built a solid political base, his message reaching out and resonating with key activists for over 2000 years. Not to mention, Jesus is well organized on the ground and has thousands of branch offices across the United States. Advantage: Jesus (A 2000+ year head start is too big an obstacle to overcome in a single year.) ... 7. Gospels/Message: Obama: "Audacity of Hope" is currently #1 on the N.Y. Times Bestseller List (non-fiction) and #10 for all books purchased on Amazon.com. Jesus: "The New Testament" -- the highest ranked edition falls in at 92,925 on the Amazon rankings list for all books. Advantage: OBAMA (Granted, more copies of "The New Testament" have been sold worldwide and it's one of the highest ranking all-time bestsellers in America, but this doesn't cut if for the next year of the political cycle.
