Obama campaign: Taking ‘God’ off coins as likely as alien attack
The Hill ^ | 9/9/12 | Jeremy Herb

The Obama campaign says Mitt Romney’s campaign rhetoric Saturday where he said he would not “take God off our coins” is comparable to arguing that President Obama believes aliens will attack. Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaski called Romney’s suggestion about God being removed from U.S. coins the sign of a "desperate" campaign. “Look, this is nothing more than a desperate attack based on a false premise by the Romney team and its sad that the debate has been driven to this level of discourse,” Psaki told reporters Sunday, according to a White House pool report.

This response is actually quite goofy enough to make the Democrats sound stupid.

its sad that the debate has been driven to this level of discourse,”

but calling republicans “Nazis” is still ok.

and “Aliens” are “attacking” America...from the south.

Yet we did issue some dollar coins that omitted “In God We Trust” recently.

Good of them to telegraph what they’re up to. “Never believe anything in politics until it is officially denied.”

I’m constantly amazed at the nonsense coming out of the mouth of this President.

I have to give Obama credit his his analogy - I think it’s pretty funny!

True, that was the intent. But some were struck and issued with plain edges.

As likely as Democrats booing at their own convention?

It's a bit off topic, but your photo illustrates a side-effect of the debasement of coins. When (modern) coins were made from precious metals, the edges were crenelated (had ridges) to keep people from clipping, shaving, or grinding off some of the precious metal. (They could still do it, of course, but it would be obvious if the crenelations were gone.) Now that coins for ordinary circulation are made from base metals, crenelations are no longer necessary; and the smooth edge is another surface that can be stamped.

Aliens already have attacked. They killed Brian Terry with weapons Obama gave them.

But saying that Republicans will put you back in chains, restore segregation, take away women’s right to vote, outlaw contraceptives is OK and accurate?
