Christians Who Voted for Obama Must Repent!

-By Don Boys, Ph.D.

I have never done this before, but this column is written with an “I told you so” attitude. All honest, informed people will now admit that Obama’s becoming President was the greatest mistake ever made in American history! Therefore, those Christians who voted for him should confess their sin and repent.

His anti-American, socialist/Marxist, racist, antibusiness actions are far more egregious than the litany of complaints that early American colonists made against the tyrant King George III. It is incredible that those early colonists rallied to revolution against King George while many present-day Americans still think Obama is simply a liberal Democrat. It is time to repent of the sin of gullibility and stupidity although I’m not sure one can be forgiven for stupidity. That will probably continue even after conversion.

I wrote the following in 2008 and reiterate it today.

Face it; if another candidate as inexperienced as Obama suggested that he was considering a run for the U.S. Presidency, he would be laughed off the stage. Why is Obama the exception? Why are not Americans rolling in hilarious laughter at his presumption? It is not because he is a Democrat or radical liberal or part of the corrupt Chicago political machine. It is because he is black; however, color (or race or religion) is not a qualification or disqualification for any office.

The thought that such an “empty suit” could even become a U.S. Senator is itself appalling and atrocious but a tribute to the effectiveness of the corrupt political system in Chicago. But for him to think he is qualified to take the gargantuan step to the Oval Office is arrogant, asinine, and audacious. Have Americans lost their minds to think this phony savior can actually fill the shoes of former Presidents like Ronald Reagan or Harry Truman?

It seems that Obama’s ambition has overrun his ability. He was in the U.S. Senate 143 days up to the time he started making noises like a national candidate. He has accomplished almost nothing except to get the reputation of being the most liberal senator in the nation! That alone should disqualify him for any office!

During the nine years that he was a “civil rights lawyer” he never handled a trial but “worked in teams of lawyers who drew up briefs and contracts” according to Obama: From Promise to Power.” While editor of the Harvard Review, he never published one article. That never happens!

As a state senator, he voted “present” 130 times! He didn’t seem to understand that he was not elected to sit in the senate but to represent his district by voting. As a U.S. Senator, he has missed more than 20% of the votes! What would happen if you missed that much work?

Obama is an impressive failure, but still a failure, and to present himself as presidential timber, is colossal egotism. He is like a 10-year-old Little League player who wants to play with the big leagues; however, he doesn’t qualify. Someone would say, “Young man, come back to see us in 10 or 12 years.” Obama needs to grow up. After he has actually done something, then the voters can look at him seriously, but today it is embarrassing that more than his family and a few close friends would even consider voting for him.

If American voters have seizures of stupidity and elect him President, he will drive this nation over the cliff at 100 miles per hour. [They did and he did!]
His wife has told us “He is going to demand that you…move out of your comfort zones…and that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual….” Someone needs to remind her that he is not running as a king or dictator or Messiah. He will not rule, or reign but he will ruin the U.S. if he is elected. Moreover, he will not demand that I do anything and I will “engage” if I choose to engage. Furthermore, he will not tell me how to live my life.

Obama is like the rooster who struts out each morning thinking the sun had risen just to hear him crow! But a big problem is he can’t crow unless he is reading a script written by a hired hack. When he wanders away from the teleprompter, he does a great imitation of Elmer Fudd.

President of the United States of America? Surely this is a bad dream but if it becomes reality, it will become our worst nightmare.

I wrote the above in 2008 and am amazed how prescient it was; however, it was far too tame. Obama has made it clear that he is impatient with the constrictive presidency and prefers to dictate or rule. He disregards our constitution and form of government. He denigrates our country and her citizens around the world. He is trying hard to destroy America’s working middleclass. He hates free enterprise, independence, and our Christian foundation. On national television he referred to “My Muslim faith” until he was “corrected” by the host. He was born a Muslim to Muslim parents, trained in Muslim schools, and has climbed into bed with radical Muslims in total disregard of mainstream America. Is it an overstatement to suggest that Muslims are in control of this once-great nation?

Obama, if elected again, will totally destroy our nation that is already reeling from past decisions by various presidents. Christian supporters of Obama should repent and get involved in the next election to keep Obama and what’s her name from within ten miles of Washington. Anyone, even Elmer Fudd would be a better leader than Obama.
