Barbara Walters confesses to Piers Morgan: we thought President Obama would be ‘the next messiah’

Barbara Walters appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan show Tuesday night and managed to make headlines with her controversial comment.

“We thought that he was going to be – I shouldn’t say this at Christmastime, but – the next messiah,” she told Morgan.

The response came after Morgan asked why Obama has faced so much opposition, and “Why is he struggling so much to really fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement that he was elected on originally in 2009?”

“He made so many promises,” she began. “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, that 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.”

Walters attempts to explain the expectations and the President not living up to those standards.

“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.”

The Obama painting as Jesus created a stir, but seems appropriate now.
