Obama To Jesus Heckler: ‘I Believe In God, Thanks For The Prayer’

I believe in God, Jesus, Kansas City, Lord of Israel, President Barack Obama, Republican lawmakers, Thanks for the prayer

Kansas City, Mo. (CBS ST. LOUIS/AP) – President Barack Obama responded to a heckler in Kansas City on Wednesday, with Obama responding to the woman yelling, “Jesus is the Lord of Israel.”

“I’m sorry what you hollering about?” Obama asks the woman, as the crowd noise picks up to drown her out. He then casually replied, “I believe in God. Thanks for the prayer. Amen. Thank you.”

As Obama chuckled and continued with his speech to supporters, the crowd erupted in a chant of “We love you! We love you!”

The president is in Missouri ridiculing Republican lawmakers for congressional inaction.

“Stop being mad all the time. Stop just hating all the time. Come on,” the president said in a boisterous and sharply partisan speech in Kansas City.

Addressing about 1,500 supporters at the historic Uptown Theatre, Obama cast the stalemate in Washington as a personal reaction to his presidency, accusing Republicans of choosing political stunts to undermine him over taking action on issues like immigration, transportation spending and tax reform.

Obama’s tough talk came hours before Republicans were planning to push a bill through the House authorizing a lawsuit against Obama and accusing him of exceeding his powers in enforcing his health care law. Obama dismissed the suit as a waste of time, noting he’d likely be out of office by the time it’s resolved and warning that taxpayers were on the hook for the legal expenses.

“I know they’re not that happy that I’m president,” Obama said. “I’ve only got a couple of years left. Come on, let’s get some work done. Then you can be mad at the next president.”

At the same time, Obama offered an optimistic assessment of an improving U.S. economy on the heels of new data showing strong growth in the second quarter of the year. “We hold the best cards,” he said. “Things are getting better. The decisions we make now cold make things even better than that.”

Embracing the populist economic message that Democrats are promoting ahead of the midterm elections, Obama said he was glad that stock markets and corporate profits were booming, but said the country must ensure that the middle class has opportunities to take part in that prosperity. It was a theme the president underscored the night before over ribs and beer as he shared a barbecue dinner Tuesday with four Kansas City residents in an effort to highlight the struggles of working Americans.

There is a place in the corner in a dunce hat, for those "conservatives" who can't figure out his clever manipulation of Republican opposition to him.

Republicans SHOULD be stating opposition to his policies. He claims Republicans "hate"  him as a person (a black person).

And all  he needs to accomplish is getting a few tasty quotes, from some "conservatives" who cannot hold their tongues, or maybe even are plants in the crowd.

The democrats decided that they would turn the table, on those nasty Republicans who planned to "personalize" the coming midterms, to attach the candidates to Obama.

In effect I think Obama is saying: "you want to make it personal, I'll make it personal back at you."

Especially for those who mock God.

Sooner or later, Obama is going to pay for his flippant disregard for the Righteousness and Holiness of God.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
