A person with this complex is a state of mind in which they hold a belief they are, or are destined to become, a savior.
The Obama’s have an acute case of it – to the point of taking credit for almost anything…and everything:
Today the White House credited Michelle Obama’s three-year-old “Let’s Move” initiative with halting and even reversing a thirty year trend of increasing childhood obesity, a trend that has led to what the Centers for Disease Control has called an epidemic. A press release from the Office of the First Lady announced details of a “two day nationwide tour” at the end of the month to celebrate the third anniversary of the program that promotes exercise and healthy eating habits to young people. The press release also included a short history of the program (emphasis added):
Mrs. Obama launched Let’s Move! on February 9, 2010 to unite the country around our kids’ health and create real support for families to live healthier lives. Since then parents, business leaders, educators, elected officials, military leaders, chefs, physicians, athletes, childcare providers, community and faith leaders and kids themselves have stepped up to improve the health of our nation’s children.
Thanks to these efforts, families now have access to more information to make healthier decisions for their children. Young people now have more opportunities for physical activity in their communities. Food in schools has been dramatically improved. More Americans now have access to healthy, affordable food closer to home. And the national childhood obesity rate has leveled off, and even declined in some cities and states.
Of course, they offered no evidence to support the assertion that it was the singular efforts of the FLOTUS that was responsible for this change or even that the change actually is occurring…but they clearly want people to believe that Michelle Obama is the reason.
This is goes beyond propaganda, this is pure fiction.
