We’re Better Than This, Mr. President

In E-Mail Tidbits, The Pastor's Blog on November 24, 2009 at 7:24 AM

Someone sent an e-mail to me recently, and I thought it was pretty funny at first, but on further consideration, I couldn’t help being embarrassed. In the midst of all the things gone wrong, the supposed health care crisis, fake global warming, and all the other catastrophes the current administration doesn’t want to waste, I find it distasteful to see and hear of our president lampooning our country’s exceptionalism and spirit.

While President Obama should be thankful for the capitalist nature of our society, it seems he takes choice opportunities to criticize its virtues while attempting to lower our values and standards. It seems he wants us to be on equal footing with the rest of the world. By God’s amazing grace and power, we are exceptional, and we should never forget what brought us to this point. It certainly wasn’t our own greatness; it was the grace of God.

I believe many of the people who voted for the president are waking from their sleep and beginning to see right through the catastrophe they created. Let’s hope so, anyway. Let us never again fall into a place where we think the only hope we have is the type of person who currently resides in the White House. What a mess! How’s that hope and change working out for you?

Our only real hope lies in the promises of God’s word. Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, is our hope, and if we allow him to, he will change our lives for our good. We are better than what we have seen recently; our hope isn’t about us and we can’t fix our problems by ourselves. The whole world needs Jesus. Isn’t it time to pick ourselves up by our boot straps and run to Calvary?

  1. This scripture that my sister saw on a bumper sticker might make you feel a little better.

    “Let his days be few and let another take is office.” Psalms 109:8

    • Yes, indeed, let his days be few. I’ve said it all along, the people who voted him in didn’t realize what a drain on the country he would be. Thankfully, there are many who are beginning to wake up and see the error of their ways. To whom will he bow next, and how else will he embarrass our nation?

  2. It is a funny cartoon, but like you said, on further thought it’s really sad and pathetic.

    • e.b., it’s a sad state of affairs when this president has done more bowing to foreign leaders than probably all the other ones combined. It’s as if he has no clue about appearance; he is living in his own little dream world. Meanwhile, the rest of us Americans are left to suffer through the mess he is continually perpetuating on us.

  3. Dear Pastor Ron,
    Just dropped by to say, I’m remembering you today. Happy Thanksgiving.


  4. You are right on the mark, Pastor Ron. I really do not believe some of the people who voted for Barack Obama had a clue what they were doing to this country. I learned some things yesterday about the way taxes are going to be calculated on small business owners and believe me it is not a pretty sight. Remember his pledge not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $250,000 per year? That is a complete and total myth. I am trying to do some research and get more hard facts for a post that I hope to do later this week about it.

    I cringe to think what while happen if he gets a second term.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

    • Larry, I don’t believe much though was given by a great number of people; they saw a gravy train and voted to get on it. Little did they realize the dreadful consequences of their actions. In the meanwhile, Mr. Apology keeps blundering along and putting us into deeper and deeper debt, making the US look foolish and turning us into a nation our founding fathers would never recognize.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, too.
