Barbara Walters on Obama: 'We Thought He was Going to be the Next Messiah'

Has the cult of Obama seen its first media apostate? When false gods are seen to fail, their believers turn against them. There seems to be the beginning of something like this happening to Barack Obama, who promised to halt the rise of the oceans and bring us together.

In a stunning confession of media bias, Barbara Walters, discussing Barack Obama, admitted to CNN's Piers Morgan:

He made so many promises. We thought that he was going to be - I shouldn't say this at Christmastime, but - the next messiah. And the whole ObamaCare, or whatever you want to call it, the Affordable Health Act, it just hasn't worked for him, and he's stumbled around on it, and people feel very disappointed because they expected more.

Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters, who broke the story, comments:

Just imagine someone of Walters' stature actually admitting that she and others expected Obama to be the next messiah.

Quite a thing to say on the very day a new poll found this president having the lowest approval rating of any since Nixon.

It's also worth noting that this came the day after the Washington Post said Obama was responsible for three of the top ten biggest Pinocchios of the year, and five days after PolitiFact awarded him the Lie of the Year.

Walters does not seem to be taking any responsibility for her embrace of a false messiah, Instead, she seems to lament Obama's mistake in over-selling himself, and takes no responsibility for buying.

It's very difficult when the expectations for you are very high. You're almost better off when they are low and then they rise and rise. His were very high and they've dropped. But you know, he still has several years to go. What does he have, three years, Piers? And, you know, there will be a lot of changes, one thinks in that time.

Let the apostasy begin! Confession is good for the soul, Ms. Walters.
