Obama nation

At President Obama’s recent press conference in Turkey, he asserted that “...we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values.”

That statement is more revealing of the president than of America. Knowing that organizations reflect the philosophy of their leadership, the president’s admission that his beliefs and philosophy of governing are not rooted in Judeo-Christian values is telling — and explains the debacle that is his administration.

What mix of “ideals and...values” he’s referring to, and to what extent he picks from a grab bag of secular philosophies to employ as guiding principles is anyone’s guess. From my view, his sources of guidance are ineffective.

His promotion of class envy and racial division; his lies; his wealth distribution schemes; and his callous disregard for the lives of babies doomed by abortion reveal a man who elects to govern by other than Judeo-Christian values.

Mr. Obama wants to lead “by returning America to its former greatness” and by staking out the moral high ground; ain’t happenin,’ Mr. President. If he deigns to look down from atop his White House dais, he will see what his govern-without-God leadership has wrought: chaos. Stepping out from beneath God’s protection always results in natural consequences (none good).

Spurning God, His principles, and those who know that only His ways work, brings failure. And “failure” is the word that typifies this president’s policies, plans and performance.

If the teleprompter hadn’t conveniently hiccupped, I’m sure the next part of Mr. Obama’s press conference would have seen him quoting the late Bertrand Russell when he said, “I’m afraid you’ve got it wrong. [We] are socialists. We don’t pretend to be Christians.”
