"Lest we get on our high horse": How low can Obama go?

Ladies and gents, can the imposter in the Oval Office get any more ridiculous than he did this past week?
You have no doubt heard—because if you read me, it means you're intelligent and you're aware of the geopolitical situation—about the absolutely sickening video that ISIS released of their captured Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasaesbeh and how they cremated him alive. Kasaesbeh was reportedly a devout Muslim, but that did not spare him the irrational wrath of ISIS. Jordan is now on the warpath against what the King himself, Abdullah II, has admitted are savages. I dearly wish the Jordanian leader had said to Obama during their meeting, "we're dealing with this horror because you didn't sign the Status of Forces agreement with respect to Iraq." But the King is a gentleman.
Remember from your history books the days when kings used to be head military commanders and take part in the fighting themselves? Abdullah II has quoted Clint Eastwood from the film Unforgiven that summarizes his planned response to the brutal murderers of ISIS: "Any son of a bitch takes a shot at me, I'm not only going to kill him, I'm going to kill his wife and all his friends and burn his damn house down." It is thought that the King of Jordan will partake in airstrikes against ISIS targets.
What is the American President's response to the video that so enraged the King, Queen Raina and the population of Jordan?
"You know, I just got word of the video that had been released. I don’t know the details on the confirmations. Should in fact this video be authentic, it’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization. And it I think will redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of a global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated. It also indicates the degree to which whatever ideology they are operating off of, it’s bankrupt."
Ummm, viciousness and barbarity? He's on track with barbarity, but how about "evil"? Organization? It's not the Association of Enterprise Architects or the Urban Land Institute, Mr. President. It's a global coalition of terrorists, a metastasizing cancer on the Middle East. And their "ideology" is not "bankrupt". Their poisonous charter, their mission statement, is attracting thousands to their ranks on a constant and consistent basis. And what does ISIS do with recruits who decide that the lifestyle isn't for them? Not that I particularly care, but they kill them, Dear Leader. They track them down and they kill them.
This isn't bad enough. Days after ISIS released their agitprop, Obama engaged in the moral equivocation typical of the Left at the National Prayer Breakfast, dragging Christianity into the foray where it has no place. The National Prayer Breakfast, a tradition that just had its 63rd anniversary, is, according to Sam Rohrer of The American Pastors Network, "a time to come together for fellowship and prayer in the Spirit of Jesus." Rohrer said that at the 63rd NPB, the Prez "turned it into an event that worships the god of political correctness while attempting to create some feeble moral parity between Christians and radical Islamic terrorists." Ben Carson, in an interview with Greta Van Susteren of FOX News, said that alleging that Christians "are no worse than other people have been in the past" is "absolutely irrelevant". Dr. Carson also said that "having a leader who doesn't seem to understand what a basic school child might understand is somewhat worrisome."
Here's a direct quote from Obama's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast: "And lest we get on our high horse and think this [murder and intolerance in the name of religion] is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and the Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ."
Spoken like a man who does not know history. The Crusades were launched in response to the nearly complete takeover of Europe by the the Muslim world at that time. Abolitionists were led by Christians, and the civil rights movement was spearheaded by those who believed in Christ. Martin Luther King Jr. was a minister, as were so many others during the fight for civil rights during the '50s and '60s.
Why does Obama not know history? Is he simply towing the Leftie-liberal line which has to equate Christian fighting in the Crusades to the current savagery of radical Islam? Or is he, as so many Right-wingers have for a long time asserted, a Muslim himself?  I used to question that, thinking, "c'mon now, let's not step over the line in rejecting what the man stands for."  Now I'm not so sure.
For a man who has promised transparency, he is very secretive with respect to his religious affliation as well as birthplace and college transcripts.
Two more years with this charlatan in office and what amounts to precious little opposition to him in Congress. It's the stuff of nightmares.

And yet another embarrassing moment of the Obama presidency. They just keep adding up.
He's treating ISIS like it's a pebble in his shoe. I can't take two more years.

Two more years with this idiot in office seems like forever.
