Obama: God wants Congress to pass my jobs bill
Hotair ^ | 11/02/2011 | Tina Korbe

Posted on 11/02/2011 3:23:32 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

The president has no patience for the House of Representatives these days. Never mind that Republicans in the House have passed 15 different jobs bills or that the Republican Study Committee today unveiled a new job creation program. Did you hear they took time to pass a non-binding resolution to remind Americans of the nation’s official motto? (That would be “In God We Trust,” by the way.)

Don’t mistake Barack Obama: He trusts in God. He just doesn’t want the House to take a single minute to address any topic other than his jobs proposal. Why? Because that’s what he God wants.

The Washington Times reports:

Urging Congress again to pass a portion of his jobs bill, President Obama claimed Wednesday that God is on his side.

Mr. Obama was standing at the D.C. side of the Key Bridge, calling attention to America’s crumbling infrastructure and the need to put more construction workers back on the job. He criticized House Republicans for ignoring his legislation while approving a measure that reaffirms “In God We Trust” as the national motto.

“That’s not putting people back to work,” Mr. Obama said. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”

It’s hard not to ever-so-slightly suspect that, in Obama’s mind, God’s will ought to conform to his and not the other way around … but I’m trying very hard to banish that suspicion. Humility might not be Obama’s strong suit, but surely not even he is that arrogant.

At the daily press briefing, when a reporter asked Jay Carney whether Obama’s invocation of God might not have been a bit much, the press secretary defended it with this: “I believe the phrase from the Bible is ‘The Lord helps those who help themselves.’” Not so, Mr. Carney, not so. Nowhere in the Bible does that adage make its appearance.

What’s so disappointing about this entire episode is the way the one piece of feel-good bipartisan legislation to pass the House in ages has been drafted into the partisan circus of the president. Sure, electorally speaking, jobs legislation is more important even than any kind of faithful or patriotic display. But, spiritually speaking, it comes as a welcome relief to this American, at least, to remember that, while politicians repeatedly prove themselves unworthy of trust, the God of our fathers has always been and will always be trustworthy.

Which God he talking about?

God likes debt? The Bible has a lot to say about it being very dangerous.

Will the Dems and the media go after him for invoking the name of God?

So many questions.

“I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”

Where in the Bible can one find “God helps those who help themselves”?

Absolutely. Perfect.

Keep talkin', Jay.

Fascinating. No matter what Barry does, he can't seem to do anything except prove his pathological narcissism.

The Lord helps those who help themselves.’

A favorite saying from my grandfather:

"God helps those who help themselves but the Irishman says God help those I catch helping themselves......."

Hmmm.

God told me he wants us to help find Obama a new job.

I certainly am open to the possibility that Barry’s god is not my God.
