In this video clip of Obama in Turkey, he stumbles through a speech that could make an ostrich proud.

It is no secret that at heart, Barack Obama’s allegiance is more Global than American. Given that fact, I don’t know who the President thinks he is fooling when he mixes religion and politics. Maybe it is because of his early training that he has such a difficult time getting his head around the facts. Happily, the President now fools very few people when he mixes his religion and politics. It is ludicrous to run around using the term “Christian” the way he does, and all thinking Americans are smart enough to figure that out. Real Americans generally do not mix religion and politics the way Obama does.

By “affiliation” (which is the only real way to view religion politically, since no one can accurately judge an individual’s heart) we are indeed a Christian nation.

Evangelical Protestant Churches – 26.3%
Mainline Protestant Churches – 18.1%
Catholic 23.9%
Historically Black Churches – 6.9%
Mormon – 1.7%
Jehovah’s Witness – 0.7%
Other self-identified (chiefly metaphysical) – 0.3%

Total percentage of US adults who would claim a “Christian affiliation” is 77.9%

Unaffiliated – 16.1%
Jewish – 1.7%
Buddhist – 0.7%
Muslim – 0.6%
Hindu, Unitarian, New Age, and Native American are equal to or all less than 0.4% each.

Obama could claim that we are politically secular, because there are truly aggressive attempts made to separate church and state, but to deny the nation’s Christian affiliation is the ostrich’s approach—head in the sand. ostrich

Also worth noting is that the Muslim percentage was not broken down into categories the way Christian affiliation was. This has the potential to be misleading. Islam is not homogenous. There are Sunnis and there are Shiites. There are tensions, major tensions, between the two groups. Again, the President seems to play ostrich about this when it comes to his domestic policy. So when, as he did this past week, he travels to Ireland and makes a speech that calls their parochial schools as much an obstacle to peace as racial segregation, he portrays himself as a hypocritical, propagandizing fool.

When Americans follow the leader and put their heads in the sand too… well, think about what is left on display.

Dear Speaker Boehner:

You called him a traitor, but if YOU had been doing your job, sir, Edward Snowden would not have felt compelled to expose the warrantless surveillance and data-mining.

It has been reported that the NSA is downloading 1 trillion communications on the Internet per month.

Let me tell you what a TRILLION is:
A million seconds is just under 12 days. A billion seconds is 31 years. A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.

How can you possibly think NSA’s actions are Constitutional?

Let me tell you what the Constitution says:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

We learned that the NSA is systematically monitoring the Internet posts and telephone conversations of U.S. citizens.

Your defense of this spying was that 9 out of 10 people in the briefing room were lawyers. ARE YOU STONED? Having to have even ONE lawyer in the room ought to be a BIG warning sign that something may be sketchy. Ninety percent is Red Alert!

Your job is NOT to “work together” to destroy America. It is NOT your job to do the apologetics for a President who has no fear of God. YOUR job is to be the CHECK and the BALANCE. You are supposed to be calling for an investigation of the Benghazi lies and asking for resignations. Your job is to question the three Generals and an Admiral who were fired by Obama in the wake of it all. Your job is to demand that the IRS is fully vetted. Your job is to shred the funding of Obamacare. Your job is to support a pro-job tax system. Your job is to open a serious look at the many, many questions about Obama’s passport, social security number, selective service papers, school funding, and birth certificate and end that scandal with a fully transparent Congressional Investigation. Your job is to strengthen America, not dilute it by refusing to guard her border and deport criminals.
But instead, your knuckle-dragging, kowtowing, Republican leadership has aided and abetted the destruction of any responsible representation of the people in American government.

The real traitor is the person you see in the mirror, not Edward Snowden.

I checked in to the election coverage of the day and saw this headline, “OBAMA: ‘A New America In Which Prosperity Is Shared'”

I was skeptical, but tried to remain objective. I clicked for the quote. Here it is:


“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked. “Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?”

Seriously? Who is writing this guy’s speeches?

Anyone who has passed second grade arithmetic and learned about borrowing in subtraction problems is going to recognize that the “sharing exemplar” taught back in one’s pre-K classes is an outmoded paradigm. Sharing cookies never created more cookies, just more crumbs; and every time something is borrowed from the tens column to make the ones bigger, the tens lose a major chunk of their value.

As I recollect, Old King George thought that the colonists ought to “share the wealth” too. They did not like it very much. That was fifth grade social studies.

I suppose a true cynic would say that before one can share prosperity, one must first have prosperity. I don’t think I learned that in school at all. I think I probably overheard that attitude from some late-night comic.

It is rather curious that Obama would bring up “the same policies that got us in the mess,” as if he’d been doing absolutely nothing the past three-and a half years.

Not to Worry, Mr. Obama. I know you have been doing stuff. The headline right before that one said, “Treasury: U.S. to lose $25 billion on auto bailout.” David Shephardson of the Detroit News explains, “The Treasury Department says in a new report the government expects to lose more than $25 billion on the $85 billion auto bailout. That’s 15 percent higher than its previous forecast.” The loss was calculated two months ago when GM stock sold for $22.20 a share. It has since dropped to $20.47, making the loss to taxpayers even greater. Okay, perhaps the economics of the stock market was not studied until high school, but I think most people can understand that the President has been working hard to save a vital industry that has been held in the thrall of labor unions that contribute to his campaign.

Of course, you really do not need a formal education to select a President. You can always fall back on getting your information from TMZ instead.
