Angle says campaign to defeat Reid God's 'calling'
Associated Press ^ | July 14, 2010 | MICHAEL R. BLOOD

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Republican Sharron Angle says her campaign to unseat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in Nevada is "a calling" from God and that her faith is helping her endure a fiercely competitive race in which Democrats have depicted her as a conservative extremist.

"When you have God in your life ... he directs your path," Angle told the Christian Broadcasting Network in an interview posted on its website Wednesday.

I’m curious to see how/if/when the NRA’s endorsement of Reid will help him.

Before the usual journalist suspects give Sharron Angle crap about this, they need to check out this Jan. 21, 2008 story in "Salon":

Today, Greg Sargent posted a brochure which the Obama campaign is distributing in South Carolina which seem to include religious appeals at least as overt and explicit as anything Huckabee has done. The center page of the brochure proclaims -- in the largest letters on the page -- that Obama is a "COMMITTED CHRISTIAN," and includes three pictures of Obama, all of which show him praying or preaching in a Church, and also includes a fourth picture: of the interior of a Church with a large cross lurking in the background. The page also says that Obama is "guided by his Christian faith" and quotes Obama saying: "We do what we do because God is with us."

That same page prints Obama's views "on the power of prayer," and -- using the same language George Bush has frequently used as a signifier to evangelical voters -- says that Obama is "Called to Christ," "Called to Bring Change" and "Called to Serve":

Similarly, the front page of the brochure shows Obama in a chin-on-hand contemplative posture and underneath, it reads: "Answering the Call." The last page shows two more pictures of Obama in Church, proclaims him again in large letters to be a "COMMITTED CHRISTIAN," and describes how he "felt a beckoning and accepted Jesus Christ into [his] life":

I can’t imagine it will help the NRA.

Angle needs to stick to bread and butter issue. The democrat
polls now claim Reid has pulled ahead of Angle.

Ah yes. AP as predictable as showers in April.

They have a nose for hunting down candidates that mention their faith in God directing their path, and make sure that gets out their always with some snide mention of how they must be a religious nut that will lead the US into a theocracy.

Does anyone remember when AP started talking about Palin’s church bulletin and sending reporters to her church, hoping they could get her acting “too religious”?

And someone did burn down Palin’s church, didn’t they? Of course, the MSM didn’t deem that worthy of too much mention.

Err, that’s not exactly what I meant.

What I mean is, it’s good to at least attempt to undermine their hypocrisy before it hits the ground running.

She's right. It is.

We all have a calling to resist evil and drive these criminals out of office.

First time I ever heard of a large cross ‘lurking’. As if it was skulking about, and decided to lurk in the background of Obama’s photo. Odd.

From the 2008 campaign: “Obama is a “COMMITTED CHRISTIAN”.

You have to be a liberal cultist to not believe God is guiding her.

The NRA has not endorsed him yet. I haven’t heard anything from Angle that I don’t like so far but she needs to narrow her message and focus. She just needs to focus on what Reid has done and how he must go. Her constant need to let people know everything she is thinking is not really helpful. Her job is easy if she just focuses on beating a guy that the majority of Nevada voters do not like anymore.

I know they've yet to do so that's why I said "if/when" they do.

But given they're defending the thought of doing so it's clear the endorsement is forthcoming.

They've yet to do so but if you read this it's clear that is their plan.

I've already written and informed them they'll lose 2 Life Members in this household if they endorse Reid. You should write them too.

Republicans should get many copies of the Christian version and hand it out in Dearborn...and Hollywood. :)
