Pat Robertson: God told him it's Bush in a 'blowout' in November: Religious broadcaster Pat Robertson said Friday he believes God has told him President Bush will be re-elected in a "blowout" in November. "I think George Bush is going to win in a walk," Robertson said on his "700 Club" program on the Virginia Beach-based Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded. "I really believe I'm hearing from the Lord it's going to be like a blowout election in 2004. It's shaping up that way." Robertson told viewers he spent several days in prayer at the end of 2003. "The Lord has just blessed him," Robertson said of Bush. "I mean, he could make terrible mistakes and comes out of it. It doesn't make any difference what he does, good or bad, God picks him up because he's a man of prayer and God's blessing him."
I ... see. So our Glorious Leader could commit all manner of amoral and immoral actions, and just because he prays, God would ensure that Bush wins.
Well. All-righty, then! So nice to know that not only does God play favorites, but he does it on such a flimsy basis!
Really, you know, one wonders if Bush and Rove don't periodically make a little phone call to Robertson and say, "Well, Pat, it's nice that you're supporting us and all, but please, stop trying to help ... No, really .... No. REALLY. Stop helping. You're making yourself look like an idiot, and you're not doing us any favors."Posted by iain at January 19, 2004 05:54 PM
