What? Why are you looking at me like that? Didn't you hear?
First, remember: Obama's voting record (when he could be bothered to vote) was distinctly left. Obama ran as a leftist, murmuring Socialist concepts. On the war, Obama made his name in the Senate as being out-front pro-surrender and pro-defeat. He predicted the Surge would never work but would make things much worse (oopsie), then refused to admit that he was dead-wrong. Obama's alliances were racist, Marxist, radically leftist.
Obama was supported by the most insanely leftist folks in America and abroad, beloved by our enemies who want to see us as weak, timid, cowed, and apologetic. They'd love to see an America on its knees (and not in prayer — at least, not at first), and they saw Obama as the man to make it happen.
Yet now apparently Obama's assembling this respectable (to many), more centrist and moderate team for his administration. (Truth is, it's looking a lot more like Clinton III than "change" to me.)
Conservatives and liberals alike are noting this. Lefty E. J. Dionne (Jr.) noted it. I heard righty Bill Bennett celebrating it just this morning.
Now, of course, they're not saying it the way I am. They're all admiring and praising and marveling, and all that. And don't mistake me: as I said, I'm happy for Obama to make complete fools out of everyone who voted for him, by not delivering on his distinctly evil and/or foolish promises.
But let's not be dopey children about it. I urged Christians to pray for two things: that the Lord would soundly convert Obama and get him discipled, or that he'd be prevented from delivering on his foolish and/or evil promises.
There is no evidence for the former. So keep praying. But if this is a species of the latter...
Just not naïve.
Now we wait to see what he actually does.
