His Heart Harbors Deceit

One comment from a piece by Tony Blankley in Real Clear Politics about President Obama's first press conference summed up my feelings about our president, his actions, and his words rather nicely:
Thank you for articulating exactly what many of us discern about Obama but are unable to put into words.

When I first heard Obama speak he just seemed "creepy" and I've heard so many others use that same word to describe what they have heard. Obama still seems creepy, but with even more clarity now that I hear him from the position of power.

It seems obvious to me that Obama's hubris and deception cannot carry him through the next 4 years.

Proverbs 26:24-26 (New International Version)
24 A malicious man disguises himself with his lips,
but in his heart he harbors deceit.

25 Though his speech is charming, do not believe him,
for seven abominations fill his heart.

26 His malice may be concealed by deception,
but his wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.

One need not be religious to realize the bible verses above do a pretty good job describing just about any glad handing, corrupt politician. And Obama, being a creature of the Chicago political machine, cannot have been untouched by its long established corrupt culture. He's just hidden it better than most.

The next four years will be interesting indeed. Let's just hope we can afford to keep Obama and his congressional cronies, Pelosi and Reid, in power that long.
