Mr Hope & Change

Published February 22, 2009 by glaumland

I think he meant that he hope’d he could change, but I think we can all see he really hasn’t. But to be honest, he has lived up to everything I expected.You see, I have a litmus test for politicians. Really pretty basic, but it’s amazing how many people don’t measure up.

Test #1 – What is their relationship with God? And I’m not talking about the photo op standing outside of church looking churchy. I like to know that a candidate/politician lives out the Christian life they claim to have.

Test #2 – What is their relationship with their family, and especially with their spouse. I’ve no respect for cheaters. Period.

Test #3 – How do they treat others? Are they respectful of other people or do they act as if the world revolves around them? Do they keep their promises. And finally,

Test #4 – How do they treat America? Do their words and actions hold her up, or do they muddy her reputation. Do they understand that they are living in MY house and working in MY office building? Do they realize that they are paid with MY money, and that all of the parties and jets and paperwork are paid by ME?

So one month into his administration, how IS Obama doing?

Test #1 – Fail. Anyone who would attend a church for 20 years and expose their children to the vulgarity that is preached cares more for worldly matters than listening to God’s Word. I can’t tell from anything he says that God has any part of his decision making or agenda. And, of course, he claims to be Christian, but he spends a lot of time making up to the Muslim world. Hmmmm….

Test #2 – Pass. It is easy to see that Obama genuinely cares for his wife, and his daughters appear to be happy, well-balanced children.

Test #3 – Fail. I knew from the beginning that Obama wouldn’t or couldn’t keep everything he promised. Whether that was from stupidity or ambition, I’m still not sure. We know he’s ambitious – just look at his meteoric rise in office. And his two autobiographies (like anyone cared who he was back then – most people wait to write their life story AFTER they’ve done something). Then we have little comments like, “I won,” that sounds more like grade school whining, and showing up to meetings late (again proving that the world should revolve around him). How pathetic. And as for transparency, let’s start with REAL birth records and college transcripts and medical records. How about the promise to give up the Blackberry? Or the promise of bipartisanship (oh, I’m sorry…he DID invite some folks over o watch the Super Bowl). Why does he get a pass when no one else does?

Test #4 – Fail. While thousands of people are suffering from cold, Obama turns the heat up in the Oval Office (and I’M paying the electric bill). He’s surrounded himself with lobbyists (broken promise), tax cheats, and idiots (the Energy Secretary that doesn’t know he’s in charge of oil; the Transportation Secretary who wants to tax us by the mile; the Treasury Secretary who’s too dumb to figure his own taxes; the Secretary of State who just told China that as long as the money flows our way, you can treat your people anyway you want; he let two power-hungry morons put together a “stimulus” bill that was so porky it oinked (But he said “there are no earmarks in this package.” Nobody read the bill since it was rushed through in the dark of night, and to pass it the Dems had to wake up Teddy K and wheel him in to sign. And our dear leader has been jetting around the country campaigning for his programs…how much fuel does Air Force One use, anyway?

But wait! There’s exciting news today! Obama said that starting in April my family can expect to have an extra $65 every month! WOW! I wonder how I’ll invest that? I know – I’ll send it to the Chinese Christians, I know they’re going to need help.

At least is seems like some people are starting to come out of the trance (even MSM) and see Obama for what he really is. You know, I think he would have done really great on Baywatch. Solving beach & relationship problems one hour at a time, and lookin’ good doin’ it. Yep, he missed his calling.
