The Emperor has No Clothes

“When Congress refuses to act, and as a result hurts our economy and puts our people at risk, then I have an obligation as president to do what I can without them. I’ve got an obligation to act on behalf of the American people. I will not stand by while a minority in the Senate puts party ideology ahead of the people they were elected to serve. Not when so much is at stake. Not at this make-or-break moment for the middle class. I refuse to take ‘no’ for an answer.” –Chairman Obama

Everyone who has pride in his heart is disgusting to the Lord: he will certainly not go free from punishment. Proverbs 16:5 (BBE)

Have you met a person who thinks he is wise? There is more hope for a fool than for him. Proverbs 26:12 (GW)

The wicked person arrogantly pursues oppressed people. He will be caught in the schemes that he planned. The wicked person boasts about his selfish desires. He blesses robbers, but he curses the Lord. He turns up his nose {and says}, “God doesn’t care.” His every thought {concludes}, “There is no God.” Psalms 10:2-4 (GW)

His mouth is full of cursing, deception, and oppression. Trouble and wrongdoing are on the tip of his tongue. Psalms 10:7 (GW)

He waits in ambush in the villages. From his hiding places he kills innocent people. His eyes are on the lookout for victims. He lies in his hiding place like a lion in his den. He hides there to catch oppressed people. He catches oppressed people when he draws them into his net. {His} victims are crushed. They collapse, and they fall under {the weight of} his power. Psalms 10:8-10 (GW)

Your arrogance has deceived you. You live on rocky cliffs. You make your home up high. You say to yourself, ‘No one can bring me down to earth.’ Even though you fly high like an eagle and build your nest among the stars, I will bring you down from there,” declares the Lord. Obadiah 1:3-4 (GW)

Pride precedes a disaster, and an arrogant attitude precedes a fall. Proverbs 16:18 (GW)

I will punish the world for its evil and the wicked for their wrongdoing. I will put an end to arrogant people and humble the pride of tyrants. Isaiah 13:11 (GW)

Whoever honors himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be honored. Matthew 23:12 (GW)

But when he became so arrogant and conceited that he became overconfident, he was removed from the royal throne. His honor was taken away from him. Daniel 5:20 (GW) 

I think it could it be said that those of us who vote against Obama will be doing the Lord’s will come November 2012.
