Obama left the front door open. Romney can blow it, or gain traction.

I’d like to share an email i received with you.

Should Christians Support President Obama?
This man was on Dr. Charles Stanley’s program “In Touch” as a guest speaker.
I almost shouted “HALLELUJAH” when I finished reading.
Forward or’s your choice...but PLEASE read before you do!

Dr. David Barton is more of a historian than a Biblical speaker,
but very famous for his knowledge of historical facts as well as Biblical truths.
Dr. David Barton - on Obama
Respect the Office? Yes.
Respect the Man in the Office? No, I am sorry to say.
I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama.
Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama!
I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it.
I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that he is a one-term President!
Why am I doing this ?
It is because:
- I do not share Obama’s vision or value system for America;
- I do not share his Abortion beliefs;
- I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;
- I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make$150,000+
(the ceiling has been changed three times since August);
- I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;
- I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation;
- I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;
- I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than our
American Citizens who need help;
- I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;
- I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our
enemy who should give up any land;
- I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least the ones he has made public);
- I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America;
- I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East; and
- I certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran.
Bottom line: my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my GOD to do what is Right!
For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!
They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country!
They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!
They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years!
They have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country!
They have made every effort to remove the name of GOD or Jesus Christ from our Society!
They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code!
They have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!
Unite behind Obama? Never!
I am sure many of you who read this think that I am going overboard, but I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!
PRESIDENT BUSH made many mistakes during his Presidency, and I am not sure how history will judge him. However, I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!
Majority rules in America, and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and his “goals for America ...”
I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country!
Any more compromise is more defeat!
I pray that the results of this election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-GOD crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America!
GOD bless you and GOD bless our Country!

"Wait ... a Mormon is giving the address at Liberty University????"

It's the second time; Glenn Beck did it a couple of years ago. But it's even worse with Romney because of his abortion/homosexual support. It makes me sick. Jerry Falwell Jr., who runs the university, is charged with the care of those students, and IMO this is a major failing. I can't help but wonder if he and his brother Jonathan, the church pastor, are letting themselves be caught up in the allure of having the "big cheese" of the moment.

At the foot of Liberty Mountain, where some of the main shopping roads converge and traffic heads up and down from the university, there's major traffic disruption/congestion because of bridge repair going on, and it'll be much worse tomorrow with all the family coming from hotels for the ceremony. I hope Willard gets caught up in it, LOL.

I have news for Mittens. A couple gay men with twin toddlers on dog leashes parading through San Francisco is NOT a “family”.

Not a dozen words into the article, and I encounter the first grammatical error.

We should train all our unemployed oil workers to be internet editors.
