Obama: “I am an instrument of God’s will.”

…those were his exact words.

You know, just like Governor Palin said, “Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God.”  Charlie Gibson emphasized that those were her exact words.  A typically witless New York Times editorial (reg. req.) repeats this lie:

Her answers about why she had told her church that President Bush’s failed policy in Iraq was “God’s plan” did nothing to dispel our concerns about her confusion between faith and policy.

Where did those quote marks come from?  “God’s plan?”  At one time she must have uttered the words “God’s” and “plan,” so I guess those are her exact words, too.

The question is, what’s scarier?  A theocrat from Alaska who believes that toppling a cruel dictator is God’s will, or a pipsqueak from Hawaii who believes that his every action, thought and word come directly from the mind of God?

Senator Barack Obama said, “I am an instrument of God’s will.”

His exact words.


One response to “Obama: “I am an instrument of God’s will.”

    Maybe he’s right. Maybe he’s the nation’s “cross to bear.”
