Yes, Mitt Romney just went there–joking, of course, but never expect the left to have a sense of humor. He told a home town crowd in Michigan: “Now I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford hospital. I was born in Harper Hospital. No one has asked to see my birth certificate–they know that this is the place where we were born and raised.”
Cue predictable outrage from the left, the Obama campaign, and the mainstream media (which are fast becoming one and the same). Birthers! Dog whistles! Racism! Except, of course, that Barack Obama was likely the very first Birther, apparently telling his literary agent–and letting her claim for sixteen years–that he was “born in Kenya.” It was untrue in 1991, and remains untrue today, but Obama evidently wanted to appear more exotic.
In fact, what emerges from David Maraniss’s fascinating but incomplete biography of Obama is that the President has constantly exaggerated the details of his life, while the mainstream media is constantly trying to smooth out the rough edges and inconvenient details. Obama wants to be perceived as an epic hero, a radically transformative figure; the media often tries to portray him as the resolution of our past, a symbol of unity.
I certainly do not agree with all of John Hagee’s beliefs; however, one cannot disagree with his plea for 40 days of prayer prior to this next election. Our country is in trouble and will be in dire straits if we reelect our current President. Here are comments that Pastor Hagee recently made:
“Greetings to all of our Salt Covenant Partners and friends across the nation and around the world.
First, I want to express my profound appreciation to President Barak Obama for doing what all of the Republican candidates have not been able to do for months: he unified the Bible-believing church in America in one week over the issue of abortion.
When the President ordered the Catholic Church to provide contraceptives to prevent the birth of new life, he hit a nerve in the heart of every true Catholic and Evangelical. Being a politician, he will attempt to compromise his position until after the election and then release the full power of government to force the church to obey the state. Think about this!
If he made this bold statement before the election, consider how brutal he will be if he is re-elected! I have said it before and I will say it again: the election on November 6, 2012 for the office of President is the day of decision for America.
Four more years of Obama will bring absolute socialism to America. Our children and grandchildren will never know the greatness of America that we have experienced. THIS MUST NOT HAPPEN! FORTY DAYS OF PRAYER I am asking the Christians of America to join us in 40 days of prayer for this Presidential election.
These 40 days of prayer will begin on September 28, 2012. You can do it individually or in groups, but prayer is the most powerful force God has given us to bring our nation back to righteousness. I’ll be saying more about this as the year progresses, but mark it on your calendar and start telling your family, friends, and church members NOW about the 40 days of prayer.”
Pastor John Hagee
Let’s join and pray for a return back to God!
