Presidents' Day & then there is Obama
By Grant Swank

Marxist Muslim Barack Hussein Obama has brought such confusion and depression to the title "United States President" that celebrating Presidents' Day leaves one in a quandary.

How can we really sit back to contemplate the high office of U.S. President while knowing that the chief enemy of America sits in the Oval Office? It is such a sad and dangerous dilemma.

Yet how to rid the White House of this horrific mistake. He sits there with his czar shadow government, profiling dictatorship images while grabbing executive privileges for everything his heart desires.

He bypasses legitimate channels, ignoring the Congress now cracked via Senator Scott Brown's vote and marches forward to behead the nation.

Presidents' Day should be a time to honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln's natal days in February. However, now even the term "President" conjures up our drudged present tense.

Obama in his first year-plus has done nothing commendable for this country. Nothing.

Instead, he has lied repeatedly. He has broken promise after promise. He has followed through with his loyal-Islamic code, otherwise known politically correctly as his "ideology."

Yet a nation of millions wakes up captive to this anti-white, anti-Jew despot every morning. When we go to sleep at night, we pray that when awakening the nightmare will be gone. But he is still there.

Further, Michelle talks to Barbara Walters about her amazing husband. Of course Walters smiles throughout for she along with her liberal moral relativists cannot think reality.

The liberal ethical relativists along with mob hysteriacs swooned this Illinois, Nation of Islam child onto Pennsylvania Avenue. And now the intelligent citizenry is stuck with the worst irony our history will ever have to endure: a Muslim cultist so soon after 9/11.


President George Washington wrote a prayer addressed to "O most glorious God, in Jesus Christ" and ended it with this: "Let me live according to those holy rules which thou hast this day prescribed in Thy Holy Word. Direct me to the true object, Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life. Bless O Lord all the people of this land."

President Thomas Jefferson: "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis — a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that His justice cannot sleep forever."

President Andrew Jackson: "I nightly offer up my prayers to the throne of grace for the health and safety of you all, and that we ought all to rely with confidence on the promise of our dear Redeemer, and give Him our hearts. This is all He requires and all that we can do, and if we sincerely do this, we are sure of salvation through His atonement."

Patrick Henry: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not religionists, but by Christians, not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, property, and freedom of worship here."

President Abraham Lincoln: "The ways of God are mysterious and profound beyond all comprehension. 'Who by searching can find Him out?' God only knows the issue of this business. He has destroyed nations from the map of history for their sins. Nevertheless, my hopes prevail generally above my fears for our Republic. The times are dark, the spirits of ruin are abroad in all their power, and the mercy of God alone can save us."

President Grover Cleveland: "All must admit that the reception of the teachings of Christ results in the purist patriotism, in the most scrupulous fidelity to public trust, and in the best type of citizenship."

President Woodrow Wilson: "America was born a Christian nation. America was born to exemplify that devotion to the elements of righteousness which are derived from the revelations of the Holy Scriptures."

President Dwight Eisenhower: "Without God, there could be no American form of government, nor an American way of life. Recognition of the Supreme Begin is the first — the most basic — expression of Americanism. Thus, the founding fathers of America saw it, and thus With God's help, it will continue to be."
