As Chief and Leader of the Pack, Barack Hussein Obama (i.e. BHO) is in a quandry of a situation (like most other Chiefs of the past, such as Pilate, Nero, Caligula, Augustine, Napoleon, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, JFK, Carter, Reagan, Clinton, and George W Bush).
He has (as all national Head Honchos of countries and governments have discovered and experienced) an obligation to oversee and rule both those Biblically-termed: "righteous" and those Scripturally defined as: "wicked."
THAT is not a casual walk in the park - to put it mildly.
Most of all, as with all presidents and prime ministers of antiquity, he has become more and more aware of his own Creator King-of-kings, Commander-in-Chief along with His Operating-Manual-Text parameters associated with infinitely-powerful-and-knowledgeable, indestructible and non-defeatable, Almighty Divinity...whether he innately supports or instead opposes such.
American presidential elections have been very close in recent years, but the slight majority are the ones who voted in whoever was elected - much to the displeasure of the significant nearly-50% minority who work to not merely undermine and discredit whom they consider defective and lacking, but campaign for a suitable replacement.
It can be expected that the man whom the slight majority supported will function as President in accord with the needs, wants, and desire of those who got him into office, and accordingly much of what that President does can be credited or blamed on his politically-supportive constituency.
The Social-Security-and-Medicare-as-welfare-entitlements-to-cut, feminist-oriented aberrations of rebbies in the relatively recent past (Reagan nominating Sandra Day O'Connor, George W Bush appointing Condi Rice, the GOP running Sarah Palin with John McCain) are as deviant as the black-reparations-racist, pro-homosexual, pro-feminist, pro-abortion-homicide-choice, anti-Ten-Commandments-posting of demoncrat subversives.
Obama gets criticized by both the fundamentalist-Christian right and scurrilously slandered by so-called "left-wing liberals" who in fact viciously attack BHO for compromising with common-sensible, morally-minded, financially-saavy Republicans and not doing more to suppress and in effect destroy them and their Christianity-compliant influence.
It is interesting that whoever the President temporarily is, the Lord places a special unction on him with regard to enlightened amorally-benign decisions and authority deserving unique protected respect:
Proverbs 16:10 Inspired decisions are on the lips of a king; his mouth does not sin in judgment.
Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the LORD; he turns it wherever he will.
Proverbs 24:21 My son, fear the LORD and the king, and do not disobey either of them
Esther 7:3 Then Queen Esther answered, "If I have found favor in your sight, Oh king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request.
4 For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to be annihilated. If we had been sold merely as slaves, men and women, I would have held my peace; for our affliction is not to be compared with the loss to the king."
5 Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther, "Who is he, and where is he, that would presume to do this?"
6 And Esther said, "A foe and enemy! This wicked Haman!" Then Haman was in terror before the king and the queen.
7 And the king rose from the feast in wrath and went into the palace garden; but Haman stayed to beg his life from Queen Esther, for he saw that evil was determined against him by the king.
8 And the king returned from the palace garden to the place where they were drinking wine, as Haman was falling on the couch where Esther was; and the king said, "Will he even assault the queen in my presence, in my own house?" As the words left the mouth of the king, they covered Haman's face.
9 Then said Harbona, one of the eunuchs in attendance on the king, "Moreover, the gallows which Haman has prepared for Mordecai, whose word saved the king, is standing in Haman's house, fifty cubits high."
10 And the king said, "Hang him on that." So they hanged Haman on the gallows which he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the anger of the king abated.
Esther 8:5 and Esther rose and stood before the king. And she said, "If it please the king, and if I have found favor in his sight, and if the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let an order be written to revoke the letters devised by Haman the Agagite, the son of Hammedatha, which he wrote to destroy the Jews who are in all the provinces of the king.
7 Then King Ahasuerus said to Queen Esther and to Mordecai the Jew, "Hey, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and they have hanged him on the gallows, because he would lay hands on the Jews.
8 And you may write as you please with regard to the Jews, in the name of the king, and seal it with the king's ring; for an edict written in the name of the king and sealed with the king's ring cannot be revoked."
9 The king's secretaries were summoned at that time, in the third month, which is the month of Sivan, on the twenty-third day; and an edict was written according to all that Mordecai commanded concerning the Jews to the satraps and the governors and the princes of the provinces from India to Ethiopia, a hundred and twenty-seven provinces, to every province in its own script and to every people in its own language, and also to the Jews in their script and their language.
11 By these the king allowed the Jews who were in every city to gather and defend their lives, to destroy, to slay, and to annihilate any armed force of any people or province that might attack them, with their children and women, and to plunder their goods....

Many of us have heard stories of the [Christian?] German resistor Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was hanged in prison by a few Nazi guards during the final days of Adolf Hitler.
There have been other accounts in history of kings and their officials being under duress from evil instigators:
Luke 23:20 Pilate addressed them once more, desiring to release Jesus;
21 but they shouted out, "Crucify, crucify Him!"
22 A third time he said to them, "Why, what evil has he done? I have found in Him no crime deserving death; I will therefore chastise Him and release Him."
23 But they were urgent, demanding with loud cries that He should be crucified. And their voices prevailed.
24 So Pilate gave sentence that their demand should be granted.
25 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, whom they asked for; but Jesus he delivered up to their will.
Acts 12:1 About that time Herod the king laid violent hands upon some who belonged to the church.
2 He killed James the brother of John with the sword;
3 and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread.
4 And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.
5 So Peter was kept in prison; but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church.
6 The very night when Herod was about to bring him out, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries before the door were guarding the prison;
7 and hey, an angel of the Lord appeared, and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter on the side and woke him, saying, "Get up quickly." And the chains fell off his hands.
8 And the angel said to him, "Dress yourself and put on your sandals." And he did so. And he said to him, "Wrap your mantle around you and follow me."
9 And he went out and followed him; he did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision.
10 When they had passed the first and the second guard, they came to the iron gate leading into the city. It opened to them of its own accord, and they went out and passed on through one street; and immediately the angel left him.
11 And Peter came to himself, and said, "Now I am sure that the Lord has sent his angel and rescued me from the hand of Herod and from all that the Jewish people were expecting."
18 Now when day came, there was no small stir among the soldiers over what had become of Peter.
19 And when Herod had sought for him and could not find him, he examined the sentries and ordered that they should be put to death. Then he went down from Judea to Caesarea, and remained there.
20 Now Herod was angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon; and they came to him in a body, and having persuaded Blastus, the king's chamberlain, they asked for peace, because their country depended on the king's country for food.
21 On an appointed day Herod put on his royal robes, took his seat upon the throne, and made an oration to them.
22 And the people shouted, "The voice of a god, and not of man!"
23 Immediately an angel of the Lord smote him, because he did not give God the glory; and he was eaten by worms and died.
24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.
Whether or not Obama was under duress to declare support for Planned Parentlessness (a.k.a. Planned Promiscuity), the so-called "right" of military soldiers to unashamedly declare their anti-heterosexual phomohobic effeminate/sodomy orientations, and to nominate pro-choice-for-abortion-homicide Sonja Sotomayor and Elena Kagan (conspirator in the forced BHO birth certificate proceedings?)...is known only to Obama and to God. But, "but their fruits you will know them" - even though "man looks on the outward, but God judges the heart."
Two things, in summary, can be said (relating to "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay"):
Second Samuel 1:1 After the death of Saul, when David had returned from the slaughter of the Amalekites, David remained two days in Ziklag;
2 and on the third day, hey, a man came from Saul's camp, with his clothes rent and earth upon his head. And when he came to David, he fell to the ground and did obeisance.
3 David said to him, "Where do you come from?" And he said to him, "I have escaped from the camp of Israel."
4 And David said to him, "How did it go? Tell me." And he answered, "The people have fled from the battle, and many of the people also have fallen and are dead; and Saul and his son Jonathan are also dead."
5 Then David said to the young man who told him, "How do you know that Saul and his son Jonathan are dead?"
6 And the young man who told him said, "By chance I happened to be on Mount Gilboa; and there was Saul leaning upon his spear; and lo, the chariots and the horsemen were close upon him.
7 And when he looked behind him, he saw me, and called to me. And I answered, 'Here I am.'
8 And he said to me, 'Who are you?' I answered him, 'I am an Amalekite.'
9 And he said to me, 'Stand beside me and slay me; for anguish has seized me, and yet my life still lingers.'
10 So I stood beside him, and slew him, because I was sure that he could not live after he had fallen; and I took the crown which was on his head and the armlet which was on his arm, and I have brought them here to my lord."
11 Then David took hold of his clothes, and rent them; and so did all the men who were with him;
12 and they mourned and wept and fasted until evening for Saul and for Jonathan his son and for the people of the LORD and for the house of Israel, because they had fallen by the sword.
13 And David said to the young man who told him, "Where do you come from?" And he answered, "I am the son of a traveler, an Amalekite."
14 David said to him, "How is it you were not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy the LORD's anointed?"
15 Then David called one of the young men and said, "Go, fall upon him." And he smote him so that he died.
16 And David said to him, "Your blood be upon your head; for your own mouth has testified against you, saying, 'I have slain the LORD's anointed.'"
Job 34:10 "Therefore, hear me, you men of understanding, far be it from God that he should do wickedness, and from the Almighty that he should do wrong.
11 For according to the work of a man he will requite him, and according to his ways he will make it befall him.
12 Of a truth, God will not do wickedly, and the Almighty will not pervert justice.
13 Who gave Him charge over the earth and who laid on Him the whole world?
14 If He should take back His spirit to himself, and gather to Himself His breath,
15 all flesh would perish together, and man would return to dust.
16 If you have understanding, hear this; listen to what I say.
17 Shall one who hates justice govern? Will you condemn him who is righteous and mighty,
18 Who says to a king, 'Worthless one,' and to nobles, 'Wicked man';
19 Who shows no partiality to princes, nor regards the rich more than the poor, for they are all the work of His hands?
20 In a moment they die; at midnight the people are shaken and pass away, and the mighty are taken away by no human hand.
21 For His eyes are upon the ways of a man, and He sees all his steps.
22 There is no gloom or deep darkness where evildoers may hide themselves.
23 For He has not 'appointed' a time for any man to go before God in judgment.
24 He shatters the mighty without investigation, and sets others in their place.
25 Thus, knowing their works, He overturns them in the night, and they are crushed.
26 He strikes them for their wickedness in the sight of men,
27 because they turned aside from following Him, and had no regard for any of His ways,
28 so that they caused the cry of the poor to come to Him, and he heard the cry of the afflicted...
29 When He is quiet, who can condemn? When He hides his face, who can behold him, whether it be a nation or a man?
30 that a godless man should not reign, that he should not ensnare the people.
31 For has any one said to God, 'I have borne chastisement; I will not offend any more;
32 teach me what I do not see; 'if' I have done iniquity, I will do it no more'?
33 Will He then make requital to suit you, because you reject it? For you must choose, and not I; therefore declare what you know."
Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.
2 Therefore he who resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment.
3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of him who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval,
4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain; he is the servant of God to execute his wrath on the wrongdoer.
5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
6 For the same reason you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, attending to this very thing.
7 Pay all of them their dues, taxes to whom taxes are due, revenue to whom revenue is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due.
8 Owe no one anything [including The National-Deficit Debt], except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.
9 The commandments, "You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and any other commandment, are summed up in this sentence, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
10 Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
