They're trying to "pull a Disraeli"--win by ripping off your opponent's agenda. That's how Disraeli beat Gladstone, by taking up the cause of electoral reform. Good luck..........

Maybe he was just being sarcastic, trying to mock Bush?

Before anyone jumps on me, I'm just thinking it's a possibility. We'd have to see a transcript, there's no context given in that article.

Or maybe he does actually think that way

If Kerry loses, God will be seen as the ultimate flip-flopper.

I'm sure God would prefer us to have a Godly leader. But I wouldn't call this the most Godly country any more so we'll see.

I certainly hope not. Then again, perhaps you'd be extremely surprised by what God wants. I think many people who "quote" God are probably in for a very rude awakening when they kick the bucket.

That's the best response of the day.


Just like anyone who claims W is God's doing, they're all

While I don't agree with Tom Harkin's comments IF he meant them seriously (I happen to agree with Mrs Springsteen that this was probably a tongue in cheek comment), I don't really see the difference between the Democrats invoking "God's Blessing: any worse than the dribble that we've been hearing from the neoconservative wing of the Republican party that wears God on their shoulders every time they want to justify a foreign policy decision.

Neither side should speak for God, but it has been the conservative side with its Bible thumpers who have most often sullied God's name by dragging Him/Her into every ridiculous political and/ or moral position they hold!

Definitely time for regime change....

I can't tell you how many times I have heard this.

W has even said he believes God wanted him to be President.

This is the ultimate "Taking of the Lord's name in vain."

The neocons are hardly what I would call devout evangelicals - in fact a lot of them, as we are reminded to no end, are Jews.

I agree, assuming that God takes sides in elections is just plain ridiculous. You *could* say that God gave us the right to choose our leaders, but that's it.

*sigh*

I just bet God can't wait until this election is over.

(And how come folks only care what he thinks every four years?)
