Why Not an Atheist President?

Atheists feel quite insulted that the majority of people would not elect them leader of the United States. Ya, like everyone else could get elected as long as they weren't an atheist.
Don't worry. Your day will come. Maybe. But here's the thing about why atheists can't get the votes.
The most dangerous thing about atheists is that they think they are good people. Stalin and Pol Pot etc. really thought that killing 90 million Christians was a good thing to do. More and more atheists today agree with Islamic extremists that Christianity should be outlawed, banished, removed from existence.
Reality is, normal people simply don't trust those who are so fantastically blind to their own nature.
In fact the only thing that is recognized as "wrong" by the atheists with whom I've interacted is what is generally called, crime. And even then, individual atheists pick and choose which behaviours should be called crimes.
For the atheist, moral behaviour is decided by:
a) society at large, IF they agree with what society thinks, or
b) the community, unless the atheist disagrees with the community. In that case it comes down to
c) the individual atheist according to h/her likes and dislikes.
When asked, "Are you a good person?" a response of, "Well, I haven't killed anyone," is seen as an acceptable answer.
Atheists must believe they are good people because one of their many points of dogma states, 

"I don't need God in order to be a good person." 

And, as long as they can point to someone who is visibly worse than they are, atheists truly believe that they are good people. This particular creedal point forces atheists to believe they are indeed someone who is good, someone who doesn't need the character transforming Spirit of Creator God in their lives.
So the average person on the street (someone who doesn't get sick or suicidal from looking at two steel beams in the shape of a cross) looks at the atheist's moral processing and thinks, if the levels of corruption that we see in government and even in ourselves occurs in people who recognize they need help to be good, what would it be like in people who think they don't need help?
