    As per a promise to Crabtownboy, here are 10 things I like about Barack Obama.


    • He is an excellent speaker
    • He seems to be a great father and husband.
    • As a father with children with learning disabilities, I like the fact that he wants to fix Bush’s “No Child left behind”
    • He has a grasp of the potential power of the internet, and is not afraid to use technology.
    • Along those lines, he realizes the potential of technology, and plans to use it to help our country advance in the 21st century.
    • Although he is not an evangelical, (He follows liberation theology).. his policies reflect his brand of “Christian” faith.. at least he is consistent.
    • He has charisma that has mesmerized the world, and in some parts improved relations between our country and others.
    • He dresses, and behaves professional.
    • He is not afraid to try new things… is not stuck in 20th century ideas..
    • He has a great sense of humor.. I Love this video!!!! YOU have to watch it…even if you don't like him, you will get a laugh out of this...

    He's 10 times better than Bush...

    1. He's asked for 10 thousand more troups than Bush did during the push.

    2. He's increased Bush's extravagant spending 10 fold.

    3. He's out golfed Bush by 10 games since taking office.

    4. He has 10 times more political czars.

    5. He's 10 times more interesting on late-night comedy shows than Bush ever was.

    I just can't think of even one thing that I like about Obama in his role as President. I just haven't been "mesmerized" like the "world". It would be good to have a President "stuck in late 18th Century ideas" about the role of the federal government.

    Here is ten things I like about Obama
    He will be defeated in 2012.
    He will not run for office in 2016.
    I got through 57 years of life without this guy in office.
    He will never carry Kentucky.
    He will fail to get his health care agenda through.
    He will cause a resurgence of the coservative movement.
    He will wake people up to the meaning of a Constitutional government.
    After next November, with republican gains, he will be much weaker.
    The off button to the TV when he appears.
    The channel changer when he appears.

    It just gets you right here, in the heart of your soul, to see the liberal Republicans and the super liberal Democrats putting down the swords for plow shares. I mean, the Bible says in the last days, the elephant will lie down with the donkey. Now we can have unConstitutional government that has less bickering, and more efficient. Maybe we can get so united, we can have a Democrat President and Republican Vice-President. Here is the latest picture of the new and improved loving Congress.

    Wow...I just mean WOW!!!!!!
    I mean, you're a father, and have great respect fo your wife and children?
    I'm sure Obama does too.
    Just not for us or our (or fo) our families.

    I believe you are referring to the Millennial Reign of Christ, not the last days of this age.

    While I appreciate your intention, I do not believe Obama is raising his children up in Christ.

    "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children..."

    As Jesus points out - even an evil parent can still love and care for their children.

    That Obama is dedicated to his wife and children doesn't necessarily speak to his broader character.

    The image of the organized ganster is that he will kill others in cold blood and then go home to his loving family without a second thought about what he had done.

    Not saying that Obama is anything - good or bad - just pointing out that dedication to one's own family doesn't give us the full picture of a man.

    You are correct. It was a bad illustration.
