Yeah, not appropriate. The Bible is clear that we are to submit to the powers that be, which are ordained of God. Doesn't mean we accept or follow after ,sin and wrong illegal behavior, but insofar as we are not dishonoring or disobeying God or the law, we should submit.
Granted, with this President, not much legal to follow after, but we should still be praying for his wisdom and blessings. God will use Obama to do His perfect will, even as He used Pharaoh unwillingly.
I have had, for some time, a theory that all men have free will, until such time as they decide to seek temporal power. Once they gain such power, governor or President or whatever, then they don't have the same will the did before, because the Bible says "The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will." (Prov 21:1). Its true that Obama is not a king, per se, but he does, undoubtably, have great temporal power in the world, and as such, I believe would fall under the same as the king in this verse.
So if God turns his heart whithersoever He will, that tells me that temporal rulers don't have the same free will as most men do, because God uses such to accomplish His will in the world scene, bringing about the expected end.
So, we may not like what Obama does, but the Lord is still using him to perform His will.
