Obama:‘I Often Search Scripture to
Figure Out How I Can Be a Better
Man as Well as Better President´

Cybercast News Service, by Melanie Hunter

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/7/2013 10:22:24 PM

President Barack Obama, speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C., on Thursday said he often searches scripture “to figure out” how to be a better man and president. “Sometimes I search scripture to determine how best to balance life as a president and as a husband and as a father. I often search for scripture to figure out how I can be a better man as well as a better president,” Obama said. The president said he often searches “for the words to console the inconsolable.” “And most of all I know that all Americans,

He is self-absorbed without being self-aware. He has no inclination to self-examination. He demonstrates no humility at all. His claim to seek guidance from Scripture to improve his character is no more convincing than his claim of going skeet shooting "all the time" at Camp David. Actually, it´s no more convincing than anything he has ever claimed about himself.

With his media lapdogs faithfully gushing over his every utterance, he will say anything and get away with it.

Barack, you are The Second Coming, so how could you possibly be a better person? You´re perfect just the way you are!

His Majesty must think His subjects are really, really stupid to fall for this one.

And now the Left will scream warnings from the rooftops about the impending theocracy of Bible-thumping Christian oppressors (oh wait, that was during W...)

Clearly, the search has not been going very well.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

Proverbs 6:16-19(KJV): "These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

Obama needs to do more searching and less talking.

He reads ´scripture´ as often as he ´shoots skeet.´ Obama is forcing us to self-select into two different groups: those who know he is a malignant fraud and those who believe he is some sort of messiah. But there are signs that some of his former believers are now becoming apostates. Will there be enough apostates to salvage the country?

The last one to say this was Lyndon Johnson.

He didn´t mean it.
Zippy means that he seeks proof texts to back up his socialist heart.
He is as good a theologian as he is a skeet shooter.
This must mean he opened the Bible once, got offended, and never looked again.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game.

But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.
