Whether or not he meant the goods things he said about the U.S remains to be seen, at least he belatedly had something good to say about his own country, assuming that is, that he is actually an American. For this latter day revelation, he merits congratulations, and perhaps he is beginning to learn more about "God damn America" than he knew before he was elected. Perhaps he is belatedly beginning to learn that America is populated by millions of good-hearted, generous, hard-working people from all walks of life unlike the picture he had erroneously imagined, filled with 20 years of hate-America indoctrination by his vicious excuse for a pastor, the one to whom he proclaimed loyalty akin to his own family.
Lesson for Obama: America was founded by Christian men, received independence by the efforts and sacrifices of Christian men, made free by Christian men, advanced by Christian men and women, slaves freed by Christian men, Europe saved twice by largely Christian men, Civil Rights enacted by Christian men and developed the greatest economy in the world by Christian men and women on largely Christian principles.
To the extent that an evil, tyrannical minority comprised of anti-Christian forces in the Congress, media, education and religion have been allowed to dominate the wishes, rights and lives of the silent majority is about to change. When Obama promised "change," he unwittingly did a good thing although it was likely not what he had in mind. He awakened millions of Americans to their Christian heritage and now those who would quash the Kingdom of God in this great nation, and that evidently includes Obama, unless of course he is a latter day convert are about to learn a lesson. To his credit, his Copenhagen speech is a small indication that there may be genuine "hope" to go along with his mantra of "change."
One may oppose Obama politically and still pray that God would transform his mind from its dark and evil view as evidenced by those with whom he associates and surrounds himself, to the reality of America, warts and all, being the port in a storm, a beacon of light in a dark and dangerous world, the preeminent guardian of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
This is possible because Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God came, lived, taught, gave himself as a sacrifice, defeated Satan and arose in victory to make it possible.
Merry Christmas; and God save and Bless America!
