SERMON: Trust Me

June 3, 2013

Just when I was starting to get along with Barack Obama, as they say in Latin: “Ehr iz oif guht gehochter tzores.”

As you know, during his first term I was not a fan of Barack Obama. But with the start of his second term either he changed or I changed or both! There are two issues that are very important to me: Israel and gun control. At the start of his second term, I found myself seeing eye to eye with President Obama on these two issues. I felt that his visit to Israel signaled a radical change in policy – all for the better. And as for gun control … I lost a cousin to the madness of gun-toting America. We have sold our souls to the NRA. A few weeks ago the Republican National Committee ran a television advertisement lambasting the accomplishments of Barack Obama’s first 100 days of his second term. They pointed out all his failures, including taking note of his failing to pass legislation on gun control. Yes, the President did fail on this matter, but do you remember why he failed? Because 90% of the Republicans in the Senate voted against the bill! And the Republican National Committee, of all people, is criticizing this failure?

So me and Mr. Obama have been getting along – more or less. But that is just about the only good news he’s had recently. The deadly debacle in Benghazi, followed by the revelations that the IRS has been targeting conservative groups, and then topped with news that the Justice Dept. had secret and sweeping seizures of Associated Press phone records … wow – that is a trifecta that would take a toll on any presidency. Mr. Obama has his defenders but no matter what defense is offered, he stands in danger of losing what Moses lost in this morning’s Torah portion. READ MORE
