Skip to comments.Has God Sided With Mitt Romney? (Vanity)
Posted on 10/29/2012 3:50:27 PM PDT by OrangeHoof
Here's a little angle to the Hurricane Sandy story that might not be noticed when they are analyzing the effect the storm could have on the November 6th elections.
A lot of folks in the Northeast are going to be without power this week and possibly next, especially in some important swing states like Pennsylvania and Virginia and perhaps even impacting Ohio.
Without electricity, many people will choose to stay in their homes or dank emergency shelters. Without working televisions, they'll drag out the extra blankets and fire up the furnace or the fireplace while they listed to the RADIO for news and emergency updates.
Yes, radio. Many homes still have some battery-powered radios, some attached to emergency flashlights, with which they will listen attentively since the batteries on their laptops and cell phones won't function very long without recharging.
Some undecideds and even a few frustrated liberals will sit through shows like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Laura Ingraham and possibly hear, for the first time, about stories the mainstream media has ignored or pooh-poohed and could inspire a few of them to not vote for four more years of Obama. Even if they are just miffed enough to not vote at all, that's probably a win for Romney.
Further, there are close Senate races in some of the Northeast states which might get helped by a week of otherwise busy voters listening to Limbaugh or others.
And just before the election too! Could be a nice little miracle for Mitt. Stay tuned...
Funny how, in a crisis, so many have only one major form of mass communication left and it just happens to be the only one dominated by conservatives! He does move in mysterious ways!
Hurricane or no hurricane Mitt would win, IMO. No effect.
Well, a hurricane is after all an act of God. Why would we presume that God shouldn’t have a vote...
If we are spared another term of Obama, it will be by God’s grace alone. Hopefully, given the opportunity, we will not fall quickly asleep.
Since Romney isn’t a Christian I’d guess the Christian God hasn’t “sided” with him.
God may still favor America, I pray for it anyway.
Not really—like most of us the Almighty is just ABO—Mittens just lucked out as the best bet to stop the evil SOB.
I have to imagine all this is going to suppress voter turnout - of all voters. It is probably going to be just too hard for some to get to the polls.
Orange Hoof, you wrote “a few frustrated liberals will sit through shows like Rush Limbaugh.” C’mon, liberals only listen to “All Liberal Things Considered” on PBS.
Did God favor Obama in 2008?
Pharaoh, Ahab, Herod, Nero - Psalm 2 is what ultimately prevails over all of them.
I think if anything this is going to help Obama
The media is going to try to make this storm out to be worse than Katrina and they are going to portray Obama as a fearless decisive leader.
Let us all gather and count the chicken before they hatch.
I think it will be a wash. Obama voters are younger and poorer. Romney voters are older and maybe not as spry.
Weather is weather.
We can’t change God, we can only change ourselves.
Has God Sided With Mitt Romney? Romney is a faithful Mormon, so I’d say the answer is yes. And if you ask me, God has been hedging up the way for Obama and opening doors for Mitt for a while now. If Romney stays true to his faith he’ll wind up being one of the greatest presidents.
“Since Romney isnt a Christian Id guess the Christian God hasnt ‘sided’ with him.”
Are you one of those who think that there is a God for Christians, a God for someone else and still another God for others? Sounds strange to me. I always thought there was only one God.
Please do not use my well reasoned response to attack Romney. Attack only my response to the issue that you identified a Christian God as apparently some other identity other than a God for all of his children.
Does God really care about politics or the condition of the heart?
Why would you think God would want hundreds to suffer and possibly die so Romney would be president?
And Obama is going to milk this all the way to Election Day with announcements, manufactured dynamic images during on-site appearances and most of all a major change in subject. Libya won't see the front page again until after Nov. 6. For now, he's going to benefit.. Americans attach themselves to their president in a time of crisis. The only question is how much.
Maybe Obama’s voters will be too busy looting to vote.
The one point to be made though is, WHO are the motivated voters? No matter what, Mitt wins that one and we will vote NO MATTER WHAT (If there's an election, that is. LOL!.. This ain't over yet!)
Cracks me up to hear Shep Smith say 'Fire Island'. Isn't that a gay bar in California?? LOL
If God is siding with Romney, this hurricane has nothing to do with it. The storm could supress more Republican votes than dem. Obama’s going to have the media fawn all over him for his “expert handling” of the crisis, and it gives the media an excuse to ignore Benghazi.
I guess northeast “broken glass” conservatives are going to have to put their money where their mouth is, hey? How little did they know now prescient they were!
These sodomite baby killers should be on their knees repenting for the way that they live. Bad storms have happened in many states with very sad results.....but this is the worst storm ever experienced in the the U.S.A. and to me it's a sign of the retribution for the way things have been going in our country.
Let this storm put the fear of God into our country to save ua.
“Are you one of those who think that there is a God for Christians, a God for someone else and still another God for others? Sounds strange to me. I always thought there was only one God.”
No I’m one of those who thinks there is one God who created everything, some people worship this God. Other people have invented false Gods who they choose to worship. At least this is what Gods Word tells us.
I wasn’t planning to attack Romney, he’s the best of two poor choices. I won’t even attack you or your ignorance.
God is only your God if you’ve accepted him. Its called free will which he also gave us.
(I didn’t know only GoPers had all each an xtra canoe or kayak tucked away in their garage for special occasions like voter turnout...until you implied such in your thread)
The Big Guy also likes the Falcons @ home against Dallas on Sunday.
His Lordship proactively impacting the election in an actionable way? At the end of the day it’s a value-added win-win strategic fit!
As long as that idiot Jason Garrett is the HC of the Cowboys, I would not bet against the Falcons!
God places all leaders into their positions, be they good leaders or bad.
How are we going to vote if there’s no electricity,
since they’ve stopped using paper ballots and punch cards?
God also removes all leaders from positions, be they bad socialist leaders or arrogant "I'm-a-god-in-embryo" temple Mormon leaders...
“The Big Guy also likes the Falcons @ home against Dallas on Sunday.”
And Tony Romo will be the most valuable player for the Falcons!
Why would you think God would want His own beloved Son to suffer and die for sinful retches like us?
God allows all leaders to be in their positions. Does he place them in power? Did he place all the evil leaders in office? Or did he sit back and allow bad men to do bad things?
Speaking of wash, it looks like NYC received a power wash and a blow dry. Hopefully, it gets rid of the pee smell.
Which God are we talking about now? You’re comparison is so bad it makes it difficult to tell.

I really wouldn’t be shocked to find out that Obama lied, cheated and stole to get Ohio in his column only to lose to Romney in Pennsylvania where he didn’t think he needed to cheat.
Schools and city buildings will get high priority for restoring electrical service. No way they're still down by next Tuesday. Some houses may still be dark but the necessary places ought to be back on before then. (Of course some may double as shelters - that could be another problem).
I prefer to think of it as God conducting an object lesson in exactly who really controls the ocean levels.
No, I think it helps Obobo. Look for his encouraging words everyday. I expect to see him passing out relief supplies too.
God’s will shall prevail in this election. Our job will be to accept His will gracefully. He knows what is best for us.
The Bible says that he places them all in power and sometimes he lets bad people get into power because we ask for it.
God cares about our morals as people, not who the president is.
As the local morning ‘radio gawds’ pronounce:
“You put THAT on the radio, and SOMEBODY’s gonna listen to it!”
Gee, I’ve been through the original “Where were you when the lights went out?”, on a military base on Cape Cod. I’ve been through a few hurricanes, ice storms, blizzards, and just plain boredom. How did I manage?? RADIO!!
Sure, there has been the development of the television/cable broadcasts through the years, but RADIO challenges you in a different manner. How? All that you hear, in news, in stories or plays (old time radio is the best), has to be interpreted by that thing between your ears. They can’t spoon feed you on radio, as much.
So, all those folks in the NorthEast, and I’ve lived there a year or two, have to get used to deciphering all that stuff that they are NOT hearing on TV. The only stations that are not conservative, are those pesky 9am to 3pm classical music stations, that pass along the NPR pablum.
For those to know, a Grundig radio still works best. I can use ‘D’ or “AA” batts in mine. (Watch out for that — some of the newer models are “D” size HOGS (more than a 4 cell Maglite can hold), and NOT interchangeable with “AA” batts.
Yes, you get a power adapter, but with power fluctuations, it is winter now, just keep batts on hand. The signal will be cleaner with no extra ‘noise’ to hear.
I use my radios to listen to Rush every day. When I get up in the dark of morning, I use a little “AAA” batt set, with headphones to listen to Walton and Johnson (They are a hoot, and not at all for Obama).
Yes, the folks affected by the storm named Sandy will discover what radios can do. I’ve been a radiohead, eight transistors and counting, since the days of “Cousin Brucie”, from NYC. Sure, I have the TV/cable, the computer internet with YouTube and Live365 Internet radio, but it’s that boxy thing with the knobs on it, the PVC T-antenna clipped on for shortwave reception, that two-buck T-antenna we used to get with our $200 stereo receiver plugged in the back, that little needle thingie that tells me when I have the best reception, my five feet of #22 gauge ground wire trailing off and tied in a knot, and that sound of a human voice, challenging me to envision, as I interpret it, what they are talking about, that is Freedom to me, as long as I have batteries to feed it.
Has he won yet? If he wins are you converting to LDS?
