God knows, President Obama can use all the divine intervention he can get.
Obama has been yelling like a sentry on guard duty about House Republicans ignoring his $447 billion American Jobs Act. Sort of like how some people ignore the Ten Commandments.
Since the president’s pleas have fallen on deaf human ears, he tried celestial ears today. He turned to God.
The president invoked the Almighty’s support after Congress approved legislation re-affirming “In God We Trust” as the national motto while his Jobs Act gathers cobwebs.
“That’s not putting people back to work,” Obama said during a jobs speech at a bridge (thank God nobody yelled jump) in Washington, D.C. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”
God created the earth and apparently the universe, but I’m not sure how versed He is with job creation.
“There’s work to be done, there are workers ready to do it,” Obama added, also criticizing House Republicans for debating a memorial coin to celebrate baseball. Must have been debating having a memorial coin celebrate lacrosse instead.
In response, House Republican aides said the baseball and the “In God We Trust” items were procedural matters that took less than 20 minutes — and that the GOP-run House has also passed some 20 pieces that would promote job creation through reduced regulations and tax changes.
“At this point, the White House will create any sideshow they can to distract from the fact the House has sent jobs bill after jobs bill over to the Democrat-run Senate, only to see them collect dust,” said Brendan Buck, a spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner.
I guess jobs creation does need God’s help. Of course, He could have made everything easier if he had created either all Democrats or all Republicans. But I guess God leaves politics to Lucifer.
