Androgynous Obama Down Under

I was at my dead grandparents house which was selected in a competition to be visited by Barack Obama in Adelaide, Australia. I couldn’t believe we had been chosen and when he arrived with his entourage and security it was a sight to behold. He entered the house and talked to me and then we went to the bedroom and sat and talked some more he sounded genuinely interested in me. Then with the door open he laid down and pulled out a breast, I couldn’t believe it, was this a man or a women? Then I started to suck on his breast before I knew what I was doing. Then we walked out to the lounge room and we were surrounded by security from both outside and inside the house wanting to know what had taken place in the room. Then Barack Obama and entourage left and it was all over. What was the most striking part of the dream which I’m not sure whether it was the beginning or the end, was his face up strickingly (sic) close to mine and his current appearance had changed to that of a grotesque figure.

From a 47-year old Australian male bridge inspector, on May 9, 2011

A political liberal, he said the dream has impacted the way he looks at Obama (although without specifying how).  After he woke up from the dream he felt “somewhat disturbed and in ore [awe?] of the reality of it. The dream was so real I searched for a similar dream and couldn’t believe it, that under the title Barack Obama dreams the first one to come up was someone’s dream in a similar vain in an elevator with him filling two bottles of milk from a breast pump.”

This dream starts with a typical “Obama as Friend” theme, transposed to an international setting.  But then it takes a sharp turn into the bizarre with a “grotesque,” androgynous Obama laying down on a bed and baring a female breast, from which the dreamer suddenly begins sucking, whether sexually or to nurse is unclear.  The dreamer’s association to a similar dream suggests a maternal meaning.  

Obama as nurturer of world hopes?  or, Obama as womanish, boundary-violating freak?
