President Obama - Mr. Christian or Richard III? Two props of virtue for a Christian

President Barack Obama is either as lame a President as any Tom Clancy novel could conceive, or he is the most densely saturated egoist alive.

The Mosque Flap was a further indication of his gossamer epidermis and narrow ethical compass.

When confronted by hostile critics who howled that he was a Communist, FDR damned their eyes with " I am a Christian and a Democrat."

When confronted by any question, Barack Obama sets his purse puppies who controlled the Campaign of 2008- the Journolists/MSNBC/E.J. Dionne/Mo Dowd and other fatuous cheerleaders - unleashed to howl, explain, excoriate and compellingly illustrate that President Obama's troubles begin and end with the American People. He wants to enjoy his waffles!

Thus, Crazy Aunt Maureen Dowd -

The country is having some weird mass nervous breakdown, with the right spreading fear and disinformation that is amplified by the poisonous echo chamber that is the modern media environment.

The dispute over the Islamic center has tripped some deep national lunacy. The unbottled anger and suspicion concerning ground zero show that many Americans haven’t flushed the trauma of 9/11 out of their systems — making them easy prey for fearmongers.

Many people still have a confused view of Muslims, and the president seems unable to help navigate the country through its Islamophobia.

It is a prejudice stoked by Rush Limbaugh, who mocks “Imam Obama” as “America’s first Muslim president,” and by the evangelist Franklin Graham, who bizarrely told CNN’s John King: “I think the president’s problem is that he was born a Muslim. His father was a Muslim. The seed of Islam is passed through the father, like the seed of Judaism is passed through the mother.”

Really? I talk to Americans every day black, white, Christian, Jew and the odd Muslim. All are disappointed in President Obama. There is no "They" are out to get him. Universally, I hear, "Jesus, he had good PR, what a lame ass."

Is He Christian? The ONLY loudmouths questioning whether he is or not were and are the media cheerleaders poisoning the well long before any draught was quaffed.

Is He Muslim? Americans are only aping Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and . . .? Really?

Here in Chicago a few years back when I helped out Obama's run for Congress, Bobby Rush ran the dozens on weepy Barry by asking -

Is He Black Enough? The answer was a resounding no, in that race for Congress.

Is he a cry baby - Oh, hell yes! If the President actually owned a pair, he'd man up and shove his birth certificate where the sun never shines on Glenn Beck; take all of his grades from K-Graduate School and make Hannity eat them; drag Rush Limbaugh to morning prayer with him; and tell Bill O'Reilly face-to-face that his book is duller than Robert Gibbs - it is.

President Obama is a 46 year old, wildly ambitious cry-baby with far too many retainers around him. Goatee'd Chuck Todd on MSNBC proclaimed that not only is Barack Hussein Obama a Christian, but 'the most religious' President in modern history. Yip,Yip, Chuckie! Maureen Dowd screamed that Americans are a Herd. Maureen Dowd is a Shower.

Obama might be Mr. Christian. I think that he is really Richard III - Thus, Obama as Gloucester and the Media as Buckinham?Mayor/Catesby from Act III, sc vii -

Enter GLOUCESTER, in a gallery above, between
two Bishops. CATESBY returns.
May. See, where his Grace stands 'tween two
Buck. Two props of virtue for a Christian
To stay him from the fall of vanity;
And, see, a book of prayer in his hand;
True ornament to know a holy man.
Famous Plantagenet, most gracious prince,
Lend favourable ear to our requests,
And pardon us the interruption
Of thy devotion, and right Christian zeal.
Glo. My lord, there needs no such apology;
I do beseech your Grace to pardon me,
Who, earnest in the service of my God,
Deferr'd the visitation of my friends.
But, leaving this, what is your Grace's pleasure?
Buck. Even that, I hope, which pleaseth God
And all good men of this ungovern'd isle.
Glo. I do suspect I have done some offence
That seems disgracious in the city's eye;
And that you come to reprehend my ignorance.
Buck. You have, my lord: would it might
please your Grace,
On our entreaties to amend your fault.
Glo. Else wherefore breathe I in a Christian

One thing is for sure, Barack Obama is no American President.
