This is why these people scare the hell out of me

So,…. in my twisted brain, it would seem that if God despised Barack Obama and the policies he’s set forth soooo much,….

That instead of creating an economic meltdown in the world, with all the very bad, bad stuff that would accompany it,….

Maybe God could have just caused Barack Obama to lose the election.

Seems that might have been a simpler solution.

But I guess I’m not a deep enough thinker. And definitely not a pious enough individual.

Wonder if I’ll be saved on the day that I finally understand people like Franklin Graham.  I hope so.

From David Corn at Motherjones

Franklin Graham: God May Have to Cause “A Complete Economic Collapse” to Save Nation From Obama

Some conservatives are having a tough time with President Barack Obama’s reelection. Take social conservative leader Franklin Graham. In an interview with Newsmax.com, the Rev. Graham, a prominent evangelist and son of top-dog evangelist Billy Graham, maintained that Obama’s victory will put the country further along a “path of destruction.” And he suggested it would take a “complete economic collapse” to place the United States on a better course and return it to godliness.

Graham equated the Obama years with a national rejection of God. “In the last four years, we have begun to turn our backs on God,” he said. “We have taken God out of our education system. We have taken him out of government. You have lawyers that sue you every time you mention the name of Jesus Christ in any kind of a public forum.” Oddly, Graham ignored the fact that he and other shepherds of the Christian right have griped about such matters for much longer than four years. It didn’t start with Obama.

Ryan Budget in Pictures

Tax breaks to the very wealthy – Check

Gut programs for poor and disadvantage – Check

Deficit Reduction – well this is a little more complicated.  The CBO scored Ryan’s budget using HIS revenue projections.  These projections are based on “closing loopholes” in the tax code.  And what loopholes would he close? He has no idea, hasn’t specified a one, and we have seen how much the Republicans want to go after tax loopholes with the recent Big Oil subsidy fight.  The Tax Policy Center scored the Ryan plan using what is on paper, not what “we’ll get around to doing”, and it don’t look pretty

Obama called the budget “thinly veiled social Darwinism.”  That is indeed what it is.  The whole basis of modern conservative economics is social Darwinism, and many of us have thought that for a long time.  But it has had to become so blatant and egregious for politicians to finally speak it aloud.  And this budget comes from a man who milked the “entitlement society” for all it’s worth … A man who had the balls to tell a student to work three jobs for his education instead of relying on Pell Grants when he himself relied on SSI survivor benefits for his education.

Bush and Paulson Save America from Depression!

Bet that got your attention 🙂

That is the line that Mitt Romney is pushing,

“I keep hearing the president say he’s responsible for keeping the country out of a Great Depression,” Romney said in front of around 200 people at an American Legion post. “No, no, no, that was President George W. Bush and Hank Paulson.”

Reeeeeally? lessee here …

Sorry Mitt … Gotta call BIG bullshit on that one …
