Integrity, or the Lack Thereof

As President Obama continues to stick out his lower lip, cross his arms, and stamp his feet because no one at the G20 summit wants to go to war with him....

I think about the times I've reluctantly agreed with going to war.  Not that the consent of a Midwestern mom has much effect on geopolitics, but war does need the support of the people.  I agreed with Afghanistan because we were going after Al Queda.  I agreed with Iraq because of the weapons of mass destruction, and I TRUSTED THE PEOPLE MAKING THE DECISIONS.

In Syria, there are certainly weapons of mass destruction.  Both sides in this conflict have them.  It is unclear who has used them.  It is clear that Christians are suffering as they are attacked by all of the other players in the conflicts in Syria and Egypt.  But the suffering of Christians is of no concern to this president.

Every time this president is faced with a moral question, he sides against the Christian beliefs he claims to hold.  Abortion, check.  Gay marriage, check.  Freedom of worship, check.  HHS mandate, check.  Jihad 'work-place' violence in the military, check.  Muslim Brotherhood tyranny in Egypt, check.  Spying on American journalists, check.  Letting our Libyan Ambassador die without assistance, check.  Just to be clear, when a person in power lies repeatedly, obfuscates, and attacks those who question his authority, he has no integrity.  It is not racist to say so.  It would be racist to suggest that Obama is held to a different standard because he's black. 

So when a president most needs to rely on his integrity, President Obama has none.  In my list above, I specifically avoid mentioning all of the obfuscation and lies about his childhood, his college years, any part of his background before he accidentally told Joe the Plumber about his infiltration plans as our new communist leader.  I really don't know who thought giving him the Noble Peace Prize was necessary, but the why is obvious.  The handlers of the Manchurian Candidate recognized that his resume was a little thin.

So how do the handlers make Manchurian Obama appear to have integrity?  I don't think even they can schedule enough indoctrination meetings on the golf course to make that happen.  The jig is up.
