Pelosi: Obama Blessed by God

God may be technically an independent, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi has stated that he is the power behind the selection of Barack Obama as our leader. It was God who “blessed us” with the elevation of Obama — a remark that seems designed to justify a controversial video below on Obama being divinely chosen for good or evil.

At a California fundraiser, Pelosi called Obama “a leader that God has blessed us with at this time.” For the full story, click here.

This comes after Obama was criticized for statements that were portrayed (unfairly in my view) as claiming virtual divine status. These statements led to this controversial spoof video.

Given the fact that we just finished eight years with a president who believes that God speaks to him on such questions as invading Iraq, many voters are actually not looking for more divinely inspired leadership.

  1. Dear Michael Spindell,
    Go tell the improved part to the people of color who have recently been tasered, shot, and otherwise murdered by some of the police. I think they would disagree if they could, but they can’t because they are dead.
    And as for what I mean by save ourselves I mean the people should stop deluding themselves into thinking that some messiah is going to save them. “a leader that God has blessed us with at this time.” is delusional.
    And exactly what did Obama do to make you think he truly believes in positive change and has the capacity to produce it? From what I have seen he does not have any capacity to do anything. He is a demagogue and a downright embarrassing one at that. Purely a product of the machine bought and paid for. I hope I am wrong but the evidence says otherwise. I regularly meet white liberals who think that since Obama is black they can vote for him to make themselves feel good about themselves.
    And my question is not rhetorical either, please direct me to at least one speech he has given where he speaks in other than vagueness and feel good rhetoric. Oh I did hear a speech were he clearly said the problem is that the People need to be coerced into volunteering their free time to the government and that would solve our problems (funny I thought the government being run by crooks wasting trillions of dollars was the problem, silly me). Oh and I did read his book the Audacity of Hope which amounted to, gee wouldn’t it be neat if I were President.
    Yeah he might be better than King George Jr. or John 10,000 years in Iraq McCain but you couldn’t set the bar much lower. Want something positive to do then sign the impeachment petition at http://kucinich.us/index.php and get your friends and neighbors to do so as well. At least one person in Congress has guts.

    mnoble,
    Nowhere have I said that racism is no longer a part of the American scene and if your read my statement that was obvious:”Racism in the US is still palpable, yet the lives of people of color have improved greatly.” But if you don’t think that the lives of people of color have improved greatly from the past, you have no sense of history. Understand this, I am fully aware of all of the problems faced by people of color and while I’m not one of them and so can’t fully feel the yoke of hatred, I have spent a career and a lifetime of more than six decades fighting those evils. At personal risk and personal loss to myself and family.

    “If you sense defensiveness in that statement, you miss the point, which is that I don’t accept lecturing from someone who doesn’t take the time to seriously read what is being stated, preferring instead to project his own angry feelings onto to those who don’t fully agree with him.

    “what I mean by save ourselves I mean the people should stop deluding themselves into thinking that some messiah is going to save them.“a leader that God has blessed us with at this time.” is delusional.”

    Didn’t you read the comments of myself and most other posters on this thread saying the same thing? I don’t believe that many people, like myself, who support Obama see him as a Messiah. Pelosi’s statement, like many of her others, was stupid and does not reflect the views of Obama supporters. However, there is a qualification to that in that many Hillary supporters and the McCain Campaign have tried to paint Obama supporters in this light, is that where you are coming from?

    “And exactly what did Obama do to make you think he truly believes in positive change and has the capacity to produce it?”

    I’ve already stated quite clearly my belief in the urgency of Obama’s election and they have little to do with anything more than the urgency of defeating McCain and the right Wing. But since you ask I’ll name one, of many. As Summa Cum Laude at Harvard and as editor of the Law Review, Obama could have gotten a starting salary of $200,000 a year at any major law firm and a bonus to boot. Instead he chose to go to Chicago and work at the successor to Saul Alinsky’s Community Organization Program. Google Saul Alinsky if you don’t know the name it may be instructive to you.

    “Want something positive to do then sign the impeachment petition at http://kucinich.us/index.php and get your friends and neighbors to do so as well.”

    I signed that petition the day it came out and a few other petitions as well, such as Robert Wexler’s, the ACLU, MoveOn, etc. I also sent them to my friends and family to sign.

  3. Wow, so after 60 years of fighting you live in a country where the police regularly kill people of all colors for little reason and the President is King George Jr. who has gotten us into two Vietnams and bankrupted the country. I stand corrected, you have seen great progress.

  4. mnoble,
    Are you sure you’re not channeling Zakimar under a new identity? You utilize the same style of ignoring points being made and setting up answers that beg the question. Your style of irony is also quite similar and lacking in maturity. In the end though all you expose is the inability to actually read what is being stated. Had you done so you would find that I am clearly not a fan of George Bush, his wars, or his economic policy’s. You’ve chosen to ignore that though, because this is all about you expressing your pent up anger and little about changing anything.
