Obama Invokes Religion in Healthcare Push

It’s said that when people are experiencing trials and tribulations, they often seek a higher power. The president is apparently one of them.

On Aug. 20, in perhaps the most overtly religious move of his tenure thus far, the selectively faithful Barack Obama preached his message to more than 1,000 leaders of different faiths in two conference calls, hoping they will see the light with regard to his overhaul. No word if Rev. Jeremiah Wright was on the line.

According to the Los Angeles Times: “The effort, known as ‘40 Days for Health Reform,’ features a national television ad, prayer rallies, meetings in congressional districts where lawmakers are waffling and a nationwide ‘sermon weekend’ at the end of August. The push also aims to influence leaders in the Jewish faith before the fall religious holidays."

I suppose grassroots organizing isn’t so bad when you have the guy upstairs on your side. Take that town hall evil doers!

“We are God's partners in matters of life and death," Obama said during the call with Jewish leaders, according to Washington Rabbi Jack Moline via Twitter.

Translation: Seeee America?? It’s just you and the man upstairs. No death panels!
