The election is over, so let's discontinue discussing the candidates.

Dicussion can continue on the President-elect and on issues, though.

Default We are sitting on gun powder and holding a match

As I have said before, if the Warning makes Obama and Hillary change their tune on abortion, it will have achieved that purpose. Hillary never had to be President to achieve this.

Now, of course, it occurs to me that if OB was assassinated, what would the rules be to choose a successor before the innauguration?

This time is much more unstable that we dare consider.

I think that VP elect becomes President, then he chooses his VP.
I don't know if that is what will happen.

Default The citizenship question is still alive

The attorney who has filed suit questioning Obama's citizenship is still pursuing his case. I believe the next court date is next week. I think I read somewhere that the Supreme Court has now been petitioned.

There are some very positive attributes to the character of Barrack Obama. If he was pro-life, I would very much like to support him. He seems to be ok with breaking the rules of norm in Washington. It is already unprecedented the amount of worldwide support he has gained, and this change and continuing support could be a rallying cry across the world on his change against abortion. Of course if this is the case, it would be the Warning, and not Obama changing hearts. But it seems Providential to me that the world would be so strongly behind one person.

Default God can even use Obama for His purposes

Few people in history had absolutely no positive attributes. It just so happens that there is clear evidence that Obama has no problem with letting babies who survive abortion die, with defending and encouraging family and marriage issues contrary to Church teaching and with forcing people of faith to submit to his view of society.

He is a good speaker, a charismatic figure, loved by many in other nations etc. Hero worship is nice, but it is not enough to render a person a good choice for a leader.

As I have said before, God can do anything and use anyone for His purposes, and using Obama or Hillary for that matter would be powerful proof of that.
