I will not excerpt any of Meacham's comparisons between Job and our President. You might want to go and read them, but none will be surprising and all are quite laughable.
I will take this opportunity to lend you some of my theological wit and wisdom to the matter. There are several precise comparisons between Obama and Job that Meacham comes nowhere near:
-Both Job and Barack Obama were sitting 'on top of the world' early in the story.So President Obama IS 'sort of Job.'
-Both men get very bad news from servants:
-Servant Harry Reid rushes in to tell Obama that all his Congressional Jackasses were destroyed in a midterm raid by the Teapartians.-Both Job and Obama have nagging wives:
-Servant Nancy Pelosi rushes in to tell Obama that all of his Independent sheep have been taken by Progressophobians.
-Job's wife says to him, "Curse God and die."
-Barack's wife says to him, "#@&*!*#%, you %+@*)!" (My Hebrew translation skill is much more polished than it is for Angrywife-ese.)
