Indeed OnlyHim! there is probably many facets to this situation.
This part I believe is Spitually inspired in some way, we may not know the mechanics but we can understand how it might be accomplished:

And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith?

So lets put Obama in this:
And the Lord said who shall persuade the American people to vote for Obama and allow him to act unimpeded by the Congress to turn the USA into a dictatorship to bring about Satan's Kingdom on Earth? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner. And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the LORD, and said, I will persuade him. And the LORD said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a compelling spirit in the heart of the Americans and Congress. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.
The whole situation on Earth is principalities, powers, and the rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in high places that are maneuvering to bring about God's Prophetic Words to Fruition.
Based on what all we Christians do observe, which does frustrate us because we love both God and Country, it all goes contrary to what we feel should be the appropriate response to what we obviously see as both treason and major crimes being commited against our Country and its citizens.
This in and of itself points to an extreme nearness of when our Lord shall come and get us. For we all know that if "o" isn't re-elected He will "RE-INSTALL HIMSELF" IMHO
John 13:34-35 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.Matthew 5:23-24 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
