Faith? Obama's faith is only in himself

  So the Washington Post has a great article about how Obama's "faith" has meant so much to him during his presidency.  It is entitled: The quiet impact of Obama’s Christian faith:Why the president’s convictions led him to believe he could unite a divided country — and why he failed
  It is replete with touching photographs of Obama praying, bowing his head, holding hands with other people.
  What I didn't get was the "why he failed" part because it just isn't in there. Here's a sample of the meaningful and touching rhetoric of Jaffe in describing Obama's deeply held faith
Obama did not grow up in a religious household and became a practicing Christian as an adult. He has written more extensively about his spiritual awakening than almost any other modern president, addressing it in two books before he was elected to the White House and in more than a dozen speeches since.
His faith had been central to his identity as a new kind of Democrat who would bring civility to the country’s political debates by appealing to Republicans through the shared language of their Judeo-Christian values.
With just one year left in his second term, Obama now holds a different distinction: No modern president has had his faith more routinely questioned and disparaged. Recent polls show that 29 percent of Americans and nearly 45 percent of Republicans say he is a Muslim.
  A primary relationship Jaffe cites is with a doctor who is pro-life who wrote him a letter while he was in the Illinois legislature. This relationship, to my mind, perfectly exemplifies the trouble with Obama's relating to other people.
  The doctor wrote to Obama, expressing concern that so often abortion rights advocates use heated language in describing pro-lifers....language that indicates that the pro-lifer is somehow deficient in understanding the dilemma of pregnant women. 
  Of course, the doctor and Obama have never met, but somehow Obama knew enough about the doctor to assume other political positions about him and repeatedly cite the doctor anonymously in numerous speeches and even his biography. 
  Obama felt comfortable talking about this letter to millions of people but never bothered to actually meet with him for that fair and balanced debate he's always claiming he's up for.
  In fact, the doctor was upset because Obama voted four times against the Born Alive Act in which babies who are born alive are protected by law as human beings, what Lila Rose calls "infanticide."
  We all know how Obama has pampered Planned Parenthood, even in the midst of the horrifying video scandal which revealed the marketing and sale of baby body parts. Democrats challenged the videos only by saying they had been "edited," which they had for time. The pro life group of course, released the videos in their entirety. Anyone watching those videos would have trouble believing that Planned Parenthood didn't know what they were doing.
  The WaPo article is typical of the media: release small details and paint a broad picture of compassion of any Democrat, even when the Democrat party are the ones who actually booed God.
  Now, I know God can take it, but I can't.
  The announcement today that the Obama administration will investigate the government's role in fetal tissue research leaves out the part about not investigating the Planned Parenthood scandal.
  This proposal on the Post's part that Obama actually has any kind of Christian faith is absurd.
  He not only doesn't value Christians or Christianity, he mocks and ridicules them.
  I know one thing.
  I doubt if, in my lifetime, I will ever vote for a Democrat again.
