Our Born-Again Evangelical President Obama

You have to give him credit. Our 44th President is one clever, not to say, wily, politician. But of late he has become a bit too transparent. First, following the “shellacking,” his party took in the 2010 elections, he suddenly shifted from left to right off center by cozying up to the business sector, which he had virtually ignored and even denounced during his 2008 Presidential campaign. And now, to dispel suspicions that he might be a foreign-born Muslim and, thereby, burnish his true-blood American Christian image for the upcoming 2012 elections, he recently declared:

"A call rooted in faith is what led me, just a few years out of college, to sign up as a community organizer for a group of churches on the south side of Chicago. And it was through that experience, working with pastors and laypeople, trying to heal the wounds of hurting neighborhoods that I came to know Jesus Christ for myself and embrace him as my Lord and Savior."

Whether the American people believe that these changes in Barack Obama are genuine or politically calculated remains to be seen. He already can count on the vote of most leftist and many independents for the 2012 Presidential election. Could well be that he may convince some Evangelical conservatives to vote for him as well.
