In an article headlined Obama: God backs jobs plan, AFP is reporting:
The president rebuked the House of Representatives for passing a bill reaffirming the US motto “In God We Trust” rather than getting to work on his stalled $447 billion jobs program.
“That’s not putting people back to work. I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work,” the president said.
Hmmm. Think he went to far in that?
Obama’s spokesman Jay Carney denied that Obama had perhaps gone too far by dragging the Almighty into a fierce political spat.
Well, okay then.
“I believe that the phrase from the Bible is ‘the Lord helps those who help themselves,’” Carney said.
