WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)– U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) brought a lawsuit against the White House last week which accused the administration of unconstitutional overreach of its executive authority, to which the President mockingly responded saying, "So sue me." Later in the day, President Obama asked his cabinet to search for ways the White House could use its executive authority to bypass Congress and push his agenda without the legislative body.

    This guy bypasses the constitution, he bypasses congress, he bypasses what the "people" want done to improve their circumstances, he is no longer a president, because he is not operating as such, but he is rather a tyrant pretending to be president, which is evident because he is operating as such.

    I remember this guy being compared, before being elected to his first term, to Abraham Lincoln. The only way this guy can be compared to Lincoln is if Lincoln was the complete opposite of Lincoln himself. Lincoln signed the emancipation proclamation, Obama has made this a homosexual nation by his own proclamation. Lincoln, which is the kind of president we could use right now, said, "That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." Our country's present state is not the picture "Honest Abe" had in mind when he made that statement.

    We have a cunning coward of a president that is solely interested in promoting his own agenda at the expense of our country and everyone in it; his "pride" is in control (referring both to his actual pride, and to the fact that what he fights for the hardest is the empowerment of homosexuals – the very prideful, proud to live in sin, selfish, don't care for their country or their countrymen as long as they are getting what they want, gay "pride" agenda). He is no Christian because that can be seen by the fruits of his works, everything he promotes and approves of is contrary to Christian principles! He celebrates Muslim holidays openly, he promotes with the utmost approval that he can homosexuality and the homosexual agenda, he turns a blind eye and a deaf ear to the plight of Christians around the world, he hasn't done anything to help the 300 schoolgirls that were kidnapped by Boko Haram, he hasn't even mentioned Boko Haram with any kind of disapproval, he hasn't flexed any presidential muscle to help Meriam Ibrahim that was forced to give birth while chained in prison, sentenced to death for being a Christian, who's daughter now might suffer the life long consequences, I pray to God that she is made whole in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Perhaps Barack Obama agrees that Christians are second, or even third class citizens, who deserve such barbaric treatment; perhaps that is why he wrote a book that is titled, "The Audacity of Hope," which was his subtle way of delivering his true message, because while people were deceived into believing he meant the willingness to take bold risks when he chose the word audacity, when in fact what he really meant to say is, the rude or disrespectful behavior of hope, or the impudence of hope, because that is all that any one of us have received form him that believed in anything that he promised in order to get elected; Barack Obama's rude, disrespectful, insolent, impudent behavior.
