Never-mind the embarrassing, sycophantic drooling of many reporters in the MSM. Why does Obama allow himself to be photographed like this? Bill O’Reilly asked this question on his t.v. show, Monday night:

“A cult of personality is similar to general hero worship except that it is created specifically for political leaders. However, the term may be applied by analogy to refer to adulation of non-political leaders.”
Some other examples of “cult of personality”:
