Barack The Beloved
From the moment Barack Obama emerged as a major player on the political stage, he has beenhailed by many as a man of unrivaled brilliance, eloquence, compassion, resolve, and wisdom—tosay nothing of his engaging humor, his “cool,” and his ability to “connect” with the averageperson. In the eyes of his admirers, Obama is, quite simply, larger than life—a once-in-a-generation phenomenon. Consider, for instance, what just a few of his more prominent backershave said about him since 2008:
Actor George ClooneycalledObama “the best candidate I've ever seen,” a man who “ possesses the one quality you cannot teach, you cannot learn, which is he is a leader.”
The rapper Chris Brown wore an “Obama or Die!” t-shirt to make his own sentiments clear.
Actress Halle Berry pledged, “I'll do whatever he says to do” in order to get Obama elected. “I'llcollect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear,” she said with utmost humility.
Actress Scarlett Johanssoncooed, “My heart belongs to Barack.”
ComedianChris Rock warned prior to the 2008 election, “You'll be realembarrassedif he won and you wasn't down with it.”
Filmmaker Spike Lee has called Obama “a historic figure” who “changes how the world looksat the United States” and ushers in the dawn of “a new day, a better day.”
Comedienne and television hostEllen DeGeneresdancedfree-style with Obama in front of her  live studio audience.
Actress Alfe WoodardcomparedObama to a cool, refreshing drink: “If you take orange juiceand mix it with a littleseltzer you get then same effect and it's good for you. And that's Obama —he's good for this country.”
Actor Tom Hankssaid, “He has the integrity and the inspiration to unify us as did FDR andHarry Truman andJohn F. Kennedy—and even Ronald Reagan—when they ran for the job.”
Actor Josh Lucassaid, “I've been around him and shook his hand. He's a truly scholarly man.I'm very excited that we have this powerful, intelligent, constitutionally brilliant president. Ifind him very soulful in private.”
Actors Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas opened their home to co-host, with EvaLongoria, the first-ever national Latinofundraiser for Obama's candidacy, which cost between$5,000 and $35,800 to attend.
Comedian George Lopezhelpedlaunch the website Latinos for Obama.
Basketball legend Magic Johnson has called Obama “wise beyond his years,” “very intelligent,”“very capable,” “a winner,” and “truly unbelievable.”
Another iconic athlete,Lebron James, said, “He's an unbelievable guy, honestly. He's verysmart. He's very cool.”
The rapper Drakesaid, “I hope somebody makes a movie about Obama's life soon because I could play him. That's the goal. I watch all the addresses. Any time I see him on TV, I don'tchange the channel. I definitely pay attention and listen to the inflections of his voice.”
Rapper Jay-Z says Obama is a better choicefor president than Mitt Romney “by leaps and  bounds.”
Singer-songwriter James Taylor says, “I really love this president. I love what it says aboutAmerica, that we were able to elect this man.”
Singer Paul McCartney says,“I’m a big fan, he’s a great guy ...he’s doing great.”
, shouting to her audience at a September 2012 concert, likenedObama to AbrahamLincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr.—depicting Obama as someone who has “fought for our freedoms, not just African Americans, but for all people of color, okay, or people who aredifferent, unconventional, or people who want to believe in what they want to believe.... Soy’all better vote for fu--in’ Obama, okay?”
Oprah Winfrey put it most succinctly in 2008, when shesaid, simply: “He is the One.”
The “little people”love President Obama, too, we are told. In August 2012, a
/Gallup Poll showed that registered voters saw Obama as “more likable” than hischallenger, Mitt Romney, by a 2-to-1 margin, 60% to 30%. And a
Washington Post 
/ABC NewsPoll gave Obama an even wider advantage, with 64% identifying him as the “friendlier, morelikable candidate,” vs. only 26% choosing Romney.
This document represents a rebuttal to the foregoing assessments of President Obama.
