Imagine challenging a neighbor: 'Don't cross from your lawn onto mine...or else! 'Or else,' doesn't usually cut it, and 'challenging' our neighbor only angers them in blatant disrespect, showing a lack of regard for their personal dignity, and a lack of intelligence and diplomacy on our part. And this is where President Barack Obama, repeatedly, finds himself. Making promises and making threats, and no one taking him seriously.
And then he lobs a bomb!
Crossing the 'red line' was purely political posturing on the part of the prototypical democrat who is, at best, an Appeaser-in-Chief. But what really makes Barack Obama dangerous is his enormous ego. This is why we should expect a massive Cruise missile attack on Syria within the next few days. Truthfully, Obama doesn't really care who win's Syria's civil war. After all, on one side is Hezbollah, and on the other Al-Qaeda. Both are a win-win for Obama. What he really wants is personal glory--even if it means shedding some blood in the process.
Obamacare is Barack's signature accomplishment. It doesn't matter that, in the words of a leading Democrat, it's a 'train wreck' which will further damage our economy. It doesn't matter that small business will be hamstrung and damaged. It doesn't matter that Catholic and Christian American's will be forced to fund facilities of death such as Planned Parenthood. Obama signed the legislation into law like a goofy carnival dude slamming the big hammer hoping to ring the bell! Pride is his power!
America needs a leader who brings together the various races and ethnicities into a union of single purpose in fraternity, charity, and prosperity. Martin Luther King Jr. was once that man. Barack Hussein Obama is not that man. When he needs to remain silent he reminds us that he could have had 'a son that looked like Trayvon.' When he needs to speak out, he is eerily silent. As President, he should have the power to bring peace; rather, he is a class warrior, a race warrior, and a social divider. He wields his force from the most powerful pulpit in the world like a little boy with a sledgehammer--and the American citizens are his melons.
It worked for Gallagher, it doesn't for Obama.
In contrast, Jesus Christ, the Word made man, was born in a cave, wrapped in a poor man's rags, and laid in a pigs feeding trough. He lived in relative anonymity for thirty years in a dirt-poor section of a tiny, obscure nation. He led illiterate fishermen, owned nothing, and commanded no armies. But He changed the world forever by His self-sacrifice, His Truthfulness, and His simplicity in revealing the God of Love. Real Leaders point to what we truly need. Not what they selfishly want.
Let us pray, and vote, for the next great American leader.
