How dare our president end his speeches with "God Bless America!" How can a person who promotes partial birth abortions, legalizing mind-altering drugs, promoting same-sex marriages and saying America is not a Christian nation ask God to bless us?

He refused to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act, his continued disregard for states' (Arizona and Alabama) rights when enforcing illegal immigration laws.

He has defied a Louisiana court ruling not allowing drilling of the coast of Louisiana.

He has termed "phony" on several occasions about the NSA, IRS, Benghazi, Fast and Furious and investigations into FOX News and Associated Press reporters.

He has brushed off the fact that the Congressional Budget Office has concluded Obama care will not be deficit neutral. Ask yourself how affordable the Affordable Care Act is when an estimated 27 million people will qualify for government subsidies. Ask yourself where will this money come from.

God help us.
