In order to get a proposal made into law, a President has to convince Congress to pass it. What happens when a President can’t convince Congress? He has to take it to a higher power — the voters. When a President can’t convince the voters, what can he do? Maybe tell voters and Congress that he can speak for a Higher Power:
Urging Congress again to pass a portion of his jobs bill, President Obama claimed Wednesday that God is on his side.
Mr. Obama was standing at the D.C. side of the Key Bridge, calling attention to America’s crumbling infrastructure and the need to put more construction workers back on the job. He criticized House Republicans for ignoring his legislation while approving a measure that reaffirms “In God We Trust” as the national motto.
“That’s not putting people back to work,” Mr. Obama said. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”
What’s the difference is between God and the President of the United States? God doesn’t think he’s the President of the United States, that’s what. I’m pretty sure He would have a competent economic policy, too.
