God endorses ObamaCare?

Remember all those liberals who warned that the Religious Right would impose a Taliban-style theocracy in America? They were right!
In a morning conference call with about 1000 rabbis from across the nation, Obama asked for aid: "I am going to need your help in accomplishing necessary reform," the President told the group, according to Rabbi Jack Moline, who tweeted his way through the phoner.
"We are God's partners in matters of life and death," Obama went on to say . . .
Oy vey! (Hat-tip: Weekly Standard.)


  1. I wonder if Andrew Sullivan will now label President Obama a "Christianist"? Or at least a "theocrat."

    Seriously, if a Republican said what Obama said, people on the Left would be having a fit. But for some reason, I am sure that the President's comments will receive nary a work of rebuke from Sullivan and others.

  2. Yeah, right.
    Medicare - Broke!
    Medicaid - Broke!
    Social Security - Broke!
    Freddie-Mae Mac-Fannie - Broke-Broke!
    U.S. Post Office - Broke!
    Cash for Clunkers - Broke!
    Federal Health Care - B-b-b-b-but think of the fierce moral urgency!, especially that G-d is our partner.

    That though gives me such... peace.

    Otter: DEAD!
    Someone more clever than me (are you listening Mr. Other McCain?) needs to adapt the comment above to the classic Animal House scene.

  4. Aside from the obvious (and stunning) arrogance of this, what really gets me is the tone-deafness. For the past couple weeks Obama & Co. have been doing damage control over the death panel hubub. When you need to assuage people's fears, you say THIS instead?! Heckuva job, Barry!

  5. By "partners" he means "surrogates," but in the singular, as in Vicar of God, or more to his point, Khalifa, and even more to his point, Messiah, Divine Personality. Himself. The self-promoting unerringly signal in their language, and intentionally, their pathological nature and intentions.

  6. The constitution the United States basically wrote for the new Iraq government guarantees every Iraqi citizen the right to a job, to an education and to healthcare. Tens of thousands of Americans have died and been wounded securing these constitutional rights for the people of Iraq. Over a trillion American dollars have been spent to make this new Iraq government with its constitutional guarantees of a job, an education and healthcare a reality.

    My question for you is: why are Iraqis allowed to enjoy these constitutional rights but we here in the United States are not? Seriously. How do you defend what we've done for the people of Iraq while accepting that Americans have no claims to such legal protections and guarnatees? What makes the Iraqi people so much more deserving than us?

  7. ^ I don't know anything about the Iraqi constitution. Assuming that you do, however, it seems to me that unless their constitution is substantially the same as ours (though you indicate the contrary), it hardly makes sense to complain that they have different constitutional rights than Americans do. If you think Americans ought to have the same constitutional rights as Iraqis, I suppose you ought to be campaigning for some (American) constitutional amendments.
