Audacity of an Atheist

I keep thinking that Obama's audacity will eventually cease to surprise me, but not so far:

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, according to Moline’s real-time stream.

Partners? Really? Does God need Obama's help?

Allahpundit sums it up: "I don’t think I’ve ever heard a believer be so presumptuous as to say we’re “partners” with God on the ultimate question, let alone one who’s pushing a government program that’s got people worried about “death panels,” but oh well. Water off an atheist’s back, baby."

I'm confused. Is he a practitioner of Islam or Black separatist "christianity" or voo-doo by proxy (mother in-law) or just a plain old fashion bullsh#tter? He wants to shun Isreal but solicits 1000 rabbis to help get Obamacare passed. That's some nerve. Or short-term memory.

It's chutzpah. And Obama has a limitless supply.

Red, AMEN! I will add a word you left out to describe Obama, SHAMELSS!

Obama will do and say what is politically expedient for the occasion or moment he finds himself in. For he has no core values.

But you can sure be that had the rabbis, or any other member of the clergy, said something based in Faith or God related that was unsolicited, the Left would be screaming the "Seperation of Church and State" clause in the Constitution, that doesn't exisitent.

Perhaps God is an Aobamaist. Who knows?

In one sense, Pat, you could say he needs all the help he can get, but I do think he'll have to look in the opposite direction of heaven for it [perhaps he already has].
