Pat Robertson "hears" from God

I laughed when I read this article. It looks like God told Pat Rob Robertson the winner of this year’s presidential election. I guess it’s pretty safe for him to make a statement like this considering the relevant popularity of Bush now that he has an added feather in his cap with the capture of Saddam Hussein. Why would God reveal such important information to anyone and not reveal how to win the lottery, for example? It appears that people use “prophecy” very conveniently.

Another thought I had is that if God said Bush would win the election, then why should anyone even bother to vote? The Christian right can stay home in November and perhaps that’ll push the election in favor of the Democrats. That would teach him.... and make me very happy.

Robertson: God says it's Bush in a 'blowout' in November

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — 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."

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, a frequent Robertson critic and executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, said he had a prediction of his own: "Pat Robertson in 2004 will continue to use his multimillion broadcasting empire to promote George Bush and other Republican candidates."

In a reference to Bush's political adviser, Lynn said, "Maybe Pat got a message from Karl Rove and thought it was from God."

Unfortunatley, I think Pat Robertson may be right (though I doubt he really heard it from God). Bush and his warmongering corporations have it in their best interest to keep the fear level high among the American people. You just watch, in a few more months the terror alert will go back up in time to whip the stupid people into a frenzy thinking we need this idiot in office to "save" us from all the evil terrorists!

Yes, Sadaam was captured, but it's funny how before he was captured, after nine long months of searching, all Bush would say was that capturing Sadaam wasn't that important, but now that he's captured, it's the greatest victory in the world, and of course, only Bush could've possibly defeated this monster.

I hope, but am not holing my breath, that the American people will use their heads in this upcoming election and actually hold Bush accountable for his words and actions instead of voting based on fear and hype from a President who has nothing else to lead by. While their at it, people might want to also take a look at who is really benefiting form this war, fpr example Bush's corporate buddies like Haliburton (Cheney's company) and Bectel (Rumsfelds corp. that got 1.5 billion in no bid contracts...don't hear too much of that in the press do you?).

I’m trying to stay optimistic…you never know what might happen between now and November. Also I know (a few) people who voted for Bush but who will not be voting for him again primarily due to the false pretenses his administration used for going to war in the first place. I'm not holding my breath, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Btw, who will you vote for in the primary? Personally, I think Dean is the best candidate, but I'm inclined to vote for Clark since he might be more capable of actually beating Bush.(reply to this comment

I'm still in the process of researching, but right now I really like Dennis Kuchinich (spelled right??) he says it like it is and has some really good ideas about education, taxes, and the environment. I don't think he has a chance in hell though. I'm goona give him my vote in the primary as a matter of principle, but I do like Dean and think he'll probably win the nomination. Nothing much about Clark excites me. I haven't heard too much from him other that he can beat Bush because he's a general. But, like I said, I'm still researching! Good for you for being optomistic! At least someone is. I just hope Bush is thrown out for what he's done and what he's trying to do to this country.(reply to this comment

I've followed some of the debates etc. and Kucinich (spelling?) is too far out there for me. I think he’s genuine and idealistic, but many of his ideas too far left which distances him from both party members and “middle of the road” voters. It’s nice to “meet” a fellow liberal on this site, frmrjoyish, I’m not on here very often but a lot of the comments I’ve read indicate that many ex members have conservative tendencies which to me is ironic given that candidates generally favored by Berg were Republican. In any case, I was “middle of the road” until I became disgusted with many of the current administration’s policies.
