Where will the rhetoric end? It’s absolutely unbelievable how juvenile this presidential race is becoming.
Take this one from yesterday’s one-minute Congressional speech by Tennessee Democratic Representative Steve Cohen.
If you want change, you want the Democratic Party. Barack Obama was a community organizer like Jesus, who our minister prayed about. Pontius Pilate was a governor.
Pull the horses back in the stable for a minute here, Mr. Cohen. To say a statement like this on the campaign trail is one thing, but to do it on the floor of the House of Representatives is another.
Yes, while some Republicans and conservative commentators have said that Obama envisions himself as rather messianic in this campaign, to turn around and then compare, not his presidential opponent, but his VICE-presidential opponent to a spineless governor who couldn’t stand up against the “community forces” of the day is taking it too far.
As a Christian, this is insulting to me. God is neither Republican nor Democrat, and Jesus was MUCH more than a “community organizer”. As the true savior of mankind, Jesus did a lot more than rally a few people behind a good cause.
Come on, Mr. Cohen. It’s time to stop playing games.
This race is not about pigs, lipstick, hockey moms or pit bulls. It’s about the future of America.
If you want to disagree on politics, that’s fine. If you want to disagree on policy, that’s fine. But drop the song-and-dance, and get to the business the people of your state elected you to do… and I don’t think that was to be an insulting, over-exagerating mouthpiece trying to score a few points during a political campaign.
