Barbara Walters says she thought President Obama would be the next messiah. In an interview with Piers Morgan Tuesday night on his show Barbara Walters was asked why President Obama has faced so much resistance while in office. Why is he struggling so much really to fulfill the great flame of ambition and excitement from when he was first elected?
This was Barbara’s response, she started off saying, “He made so many promises, we thought he was going to – 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 went on to say, “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.”
