Comments on: Obama, Moses and exaggerated expectations http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/10/25/obama-moses-and-exaggerated-expectations/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Welred http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2010/10/25/obama-moses-and-exaggerated-expectations/#comment-33957 Mon, 20 Dec 2010 18:04:26 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=8490#comment-33957 @efes: Yes, some Americans are like that. And so are you and your countrymen. Perhaps your country hasn’t developed yet to the point where you can indulge yourselves in such banal things, but you will. I love when non-Americans criticize Americans, as if they were any better. You are not. Get over yourselves. And thank god that the USA has the power it has, and not some other government, like yours…

United States of America!!! your credit cards and loans maybe an instant push of the pen, but paying back what youve spent is getting to cost your fourth generation grand children.
You want quick instant fixes to your pain.You want want your cake before it even gets to the oven.
you are an emotional rollercoaster type of a people. who are aimless and easily swayed by the neon lights and the flishy flash unsteady insecure and looking always looking toblame or rationalize your way arround facing issues one at a time.

It is like watching a Communist Scapegoating court session back in the day of Antisocialist witch burning regarding the people of American giving up on Obama and voting for the Republicans. I cannot believe Americans are still scared of the word Socialist, and are so scared of any socialist policies or responsible taxation that they would have the Rebulicans back in office after they created the disastrous mess that America finds itself in right now. There are 3 facts that people in American don’t know but should. America is the only 1st world nation without a proper Socialized health care system. Ask the people in Hawaii how they like theirs and you will see how well a good socialized health care system can take care of the people. America is the only country in the world not making tax increases and making huge spending cuts right now, its a global recession caused by American, or should i say Republican policies and Americans are scaring the world right now, by voting the same foolhardy, selfish politicians back into power. The rest of the world can see the mistakes America is making but Americans cannot. The third topic is that in 2 years Obama has done a lot towards what he promised and if given 2 more years of support you would see the changes start to evolve and after his first term see that he would have changed the world. Now America has crippled the government with its beliefs and put a bunch of selfish politician into the game again whose sole purpose is to make sure these last 2 years and the next two years are completely undone and useless.

the article states that Obama said “If…we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it then I’m absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs for the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last best hope on earth.” And America stopped believing, and wasn’t willing to fight for it, and make the necessary sacrifices for what needs to be done for the future. It seems Americans instead wanted to go back into the past, and believe those that got the American nation into this mess in the first place and give up on the future.

Not for personal gain.

Since the day of President Obama’s inauguration, I have consistently witnessed a plethora of unwarranted negativity being hurled against him on every side, for attempting to accomplish that which is good, just and honorable for America. It is more than commendable and honorable for him to have taken on the undaunting task of fulfilling the Office of the Presidency, considering the mess that was left by the previous administration.

Each and every topic that is cited in this article is a direct result of the rampant and blatant disregard of the lives of the American people, which was caused by the latter administration. Corruption, deception, untruths and those whom upheld them, are the reason that America is in the shape it is in now. This is proven by the actions of those which are adamantly opposed to any effort to move this country forward.

The hatred, discrimination, and every form of evil that is being perpetrated against President Barack Obama is also being carefully scrutinized by God, and just as God used Moses to lead a people to the promised land, He will also use President Obama to lead America to its destiny.

God’s destiny for America is to be productive and prosperous, as well as a leader among nations. That includes all people of all nationalities, religious beliefs, sexual orientation and political affiliation.
God does not favor anyone individually, we are all equal in His eyes.

The reason Moses’ people wandered is because they chose to do things their way, and not follow the way of God as instructed by Moses.

People, your hatred blinds you. You are the wanderers, lost in your own minds. Moses did finally lead his people the promise land, after they received the ten commandments, and the people denounced their worshiping of false idols. Do I need to say more?
