Obama is not a Christian. Obama says he is a "citizen of the world". Well, any real Christian knows that Jesus says his followers are in the world but not of the world. And also he said that the world hates him so it will hate his followers too. This is why the world hates George W. Bush. And in I John, you'll find that God says that friendship with the world is enmity with God. There a many places in both Old and New Testements that God speaks of his relation of with the world. He sent his son to reconcil the people of the world to himself.

Obama is still muslim. He is just using any means necessary to advance his agenda, and saying he is a Christian is more expedient.
