Blessed is the man whose sin the LORD does not count against him and
in whose spirit is no deceit.
Psalm 32:2.

I am continually amazed at how candidates are positioned on issues by
their politically savvy staffs. Take Barack Obama’s position on Middle
Eastern issues for example.

The war in Iraq is going well and within inches of being
successful—finally. This should be a cause for celebration for Obama,
but it isn’t. It’s in his best interest for us to be losing. It’s what
his most loyal supporters want, and they expect him to cast victory
aside and produce defeat. That’s why Obama will not say the surge has
been successful. He can’t champion victory, and his staff will not
permit him to admit the obvious.

Could you imagine the World War II generation rooting for Hitler to
win?  Of course not, but that’s what we have today. Millions in our own
nation want us to fail. Actually, it’s more than that. They demand
failure, and their champion is Barack Obama. That’s how radical he
really is.

Because this is not popular with enough Americans to win the
presidency, his staff has also tried to modify his position slightly,
especially his kindred spirit with Muslims and his antipathy for Jews.
In his speeches, he is being positioned to deceive voters about who he
really is. Because he is charismatic and very articulate, millions
believe what he says instead of who he is. In politics, this is called
good positioning. In God’s Word, it’s called having a deceitful spirit,
which God will not bless.
