Josh Schroeder identifies Obama Messiah Complex.

The opposite of Bush Derangement Syndrome is the Obama Messiah Complex.

What are the marks of Bush Derangement Syndrome? Blind hatred. Demonization. Reflexive opposition to any Bush proposal, viagra generic purchase policy, or position. With the Obama Messiah Complex we have the exact opposite: blind acceptance, exaltation, automatic acceptance of Obama proposals, policies, or positions.

I’d say this is how Obama emerged victorious in the Democratic Party primary – Obama Messiah Complex is positive (whereas BDS is negative). People got all wrapped up in hope, change, new politics, and so forth. No surprise then that the more radical portion of the left backed Barack early on (whereas Democrats we could call more moderate leaned toward Hillary). If you have BDS, you probably also have Obama Messiah Complex. The combination is a political bipolar disorder.

    BDS is explained here.

    I am waiting for someone to explain BADD (Bush Apologist/Defender Disorder).

    Didja notice that the only folks who refer to Senator Obama in those terms are those who would denigrate him? It’s probably compensation for their own flawed candidate. ;)
