Republican politicians refer to God as if he is their running-mate. Its a nice strategy, because it presents their platform in simple "good vs. evil" terms which appeal to simple-minded voters.

People of lower intellect tend to be more religious and republicans like to exploit that.

Yep, republicans are all about God... and big oil and Wall street banks.

Like the Dems don't exploit simple minded people. The vast majority of the Obama base is welfare recipiants, the unemployed, and minorities. Welfare is a short term measure, yet some people make it a way of life living off the public dime..(Obama and the Dems base). The first lady went on and on about her husband and hope everyone should have opportunity. I agree they should, but not at the expense of the taxpayer and the government spending money foolishly. Unemployment sits at almost 9%. If we used the old UV4 formula that was used during the Depression Years that number would be 15%. At the height of the Depression it was 18%. Obama is that close. Here is where God comes in.. God forbid he be re-elected so his poor ecomonic policies continue to fail as the debt rises another $5 trillion. Even the "simple minded" should see they are not better off. Those with common sense know they are not. But I guess when you live off the public dime as long as the checks keep rolling in there are no worries. God helps those who help themselves, not free loaders who bring children into the world just to increase the monthly check amount

As a NY Dem I must confess the Obama crew is making basic avoidable political mistakes where their ideology gets in the way of practical reelection considerations. The Obama crowd is embarrassingly amateurish and unsophisticated in an operational sense.

Your post makes sense. The stimulus money was not put where it would do the most good but was put into green energy - solar panels - in keeping with his
ideology.....and you know the rest of the story.

Muslin cleric was signed on to say prayers at
convention.
Archbishop Dolan, NYC, was denied request to say
a prayer at convention but because of public
clamor request was granted.
Religious plaque covered while president gave
speech at George Washington University.

Well lets see.. The DEMS said the GOP was the party of non inclusion.. They looked at the GOP convention and saw no minorities and basically said the GOP didn't want them. I saw hundreds at the DNC last night. Now looking at the proportionate rate of white versus non-white recipiants (you can view on a one to one basis as there are more white people in America than black or other race, so don't use the more white people are on welfare crud.. Google look up states that:

There are more whites on welfare than blacks but percentage-wise there are more blacks on welfare than whites. It's also important to note that 24.7% of the black race lives below poverty line while only 8.6% of the white race does (as is stated here http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/se …) again becuase there are more white people than black in the US.

There is a government website with statistics on who is receiving TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) that clearly points out by race and statistically who get the dole and it's OBAMA's voting base..

NOW read and get some education

Yes the rest of the story is Solyndra.. The Obama backed company that got a boat load of tax payer money and went belly up.

Where do you get that the "vast majority" of Obama supporters are on welfare? You know nothing about the political demographics of this country, and even less about statistics.

It's funny that you use the word "amateurish'. Edward Klein's new book on Barack Obama, The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House, is a withering portrayal of a radical adrift. The title comes from a comment made by former President Bill Clinton who called Obama an amateur..

the Dem. Convention was in disaray and some participants did not wear proper attire.
There was a family with a boy about 7 years old. Lovely.
The dad and son had on suits, shirts and ties. Then
you get a guy in the audience booing about adding God and
rephrasing Jerusalem wearing a t shirt with some wording....
certainly not dressed for success yet alone a national convention..
you'd have to see it yourself. Dems don't let these people ruin
a once great party.

We get too wrapped up in "proper attire". Who cares what someone is wearing? Does a suit and tie make you a better person? Does one outfit or another make you more honest, harder-working, or smarter?

We're far too concerned with appearances; we value form over function, we judge people by the cars that they drive and the labels that they wear and that's part of what got us in this mess in the first place.

Let me put it in Republican terms: Jesus never wore a suit.
