Obama's Jesus Nod and Wink
Frank J. Fleming
Barack Hussein Obama has invoked Jesus for his proposal to hike taxes:Obama has started to use Jesus to try and justify his horrible policies, which seems pretty blasphemous. You know how the media freaks out about a coming theocracy if a Republican even mentions God, but Obama can claim that he did all his policies for religious reasons and the media won’t care? I think a big part of that is that when a liberal invokes God, no one really takes them seriously. Actually, I think half the time in Obama’s speech, he pronounced the Son of God’s name as “Jebus”.
President Obama offered a new line of reasoning for hiking taxes on the rich on Thursday, saying at the National Prayer Breakfast that his policy proposals are shaped by his religious beliefs.
Coming from a Republican with well-known religious beliefs - George Bush comes to mind - invoking Christianity as the basis for a policy decision would be greeted with howls of outrage coupled with ridicule and the warning that the government was turning the country into a theocracy. So why are the only people noting the rise of the Obama Theocracy people on the Right?
Simple: no one on the Left believes for a moment that Obama means it.
The fact is, those people who rise to prominence as Democrats may proclaim their religious affiliation, but everyone acknowledges that when it comes to faith and politics, faith takes – not just a back seat – but becomes a sock puppet and supports whatever political position the Left espouses. Exhibit “A” at the moment is the famously Catholic Nancy Pelosi who is loudly proclaiming that forcing Catholic institutions to finance contraception and abortion is a Catholic as the Pope. She is also a strong abortion advocate, but with the exception of Bob Casey a few decades ago, that is a requirement of Democrat office holders, and is not new.
Obama, Pelosi, (and Bill Clinton carrying his oversized Bible during the Lewinski scandal) are, in the immortal words of the late Sen. Pat Moynihan, shoveling “boob bait for the bubbas.” They are proclaiming their religious beliefs with a huge wink and nod to their supporters who know they don’t mean it; not for a moment.
