Prophet in Chief
From the New York Post:
Repeatedly invoking the Bible, President Obama yesterday told religious leaders that health-care critics are "bearing false witness" against his plan.
The fire-and-brimstone president declared holy war in a telephone call with thousands of religious leaders around the country as he sought to breathe life into his plan for a system overhaul....
He said the reforms aim to carry out one of God's commandments.
"I am my brother's keeper. I am my sister's keeper," Obama said....
Pastors, rabbis and preachers from every part of the country joined the call and prayed for health reform and told woeful stories about parishioners without adequate health care.
Say, whatever happened to the good old days, when atheists and assorted secularists would rail against any invocation of God or religion by the president as violating the "wall of separation between church and state?" Oh, wait, I forgot: The 44th president is the One We Have Been Waiting For; he is the Obamacle. Barack H. Obama is America's twelfth (hidden) imam.
While the brand new faith in an earthly messiah is intriguing, I still say -- "Give me that old time religion!"
(I wonder if Jesus is personally advising his prophet to use the nuclear option to pass ObamaCare?)

What would the world have said if Bush had done this?
Ah, but it is really okay. He is cynically using religion against the believers.

If there is a moral imperative for government to provide, why didn’t the “stimulus” just give everybody a new American automobile, an endless supply of gasoline, a lifetime supply of Viagra (that isn't dangerous after 4 hours), an X-box, a boat, a lifetime pass to Burger King and no taxes ?
