President Obama appeared before some religious leaders yesterday and apparently turned in a performance that, had it been done by former President George W. Bush, would’ve sent the left into paroxysms of “theocrat” and “Christianist.”
Repeatedly invoking the Bible, President Obama yesterday told religious leaders that health-care critics are "bearing false witness" against his plan.
The fire-and-brimstone president declared holy war in a telephone call with thousands of religious leaders around the country as he sought to breathe life into his plan for a system overhaul.
Without naming anyone specifically in the 10-minute conference call, Obama said opponents had been spreading lies.
"I know that there's been a lot of misinformation in this debate and there are some folks out there who are, frankly, bearing false witness," Obama said.
"I need you to spread the facts and speak the truth."
When he says “the truth,” he means “my truth.”
I particularly liked this bit:
"I am my brother's keeper. I am my sister's keeper," Obama said.
No, not this brother.
