Reverend Obama Invokes “Grace of God” In Effort To Extend Unemployment Benefits

How funny is it that the left tries to push God out of absolutely every facet of life in our country, but when a Democrat President wants to invoke God, then that is perfectly fine? We can't have the 10 Commandments displayed in public places or a cross to honor war veterans, but let Barack Obama invoke the Almighty and every liberal swoons.

In President Obama's push, starting from his $7 million Hawaii vacation, to extend unemployment benefits, he made the statement on January 7, 2014, speaking of the unemployed, that, "We know that, there but for the grace of God, go I."

Of course he threw in how cruel Republicans would be if they did not vote for this 3 month extension on top of 26 weeks of benefits already received by the unemployed from their own states (which are actually paid for by the way, unlike federal benefits).

Unfortunately, this is how our President governs. He never just tells the simple truth, nor would he ever tell you 99 weeks of unemployment benefits (which is where this is leading to) are in reality, bad for the economy. Instead, he uses every opportunity he gets to vilify Republicans and exclaim how "cruel" they are. No wonder no one wants to work with the man.

President Barack Obama lauded the Senate’s advancement of a bill to extend jobless aid on Tuesday as a “very important step” and called on Republicans in both chambers to back the legislation “without obstruction or delay.”

"Voting for unemployment insurance helps people and creates jobs and voting against it does not," Obama said in remarks at the White House.

"We have got to get this across the finish line without obstruction or delay and we need the House of Representatives to be able to vote for it as well," he said. "That’s the bottom line."

Obama’s remarks came shortly after the Senate voted 60-37 to begin formal debate on the unemployment insurance extension, which would offer a three-month extension of the long-term aid to 1.3 million Americans. Those benefits halted on December 28 when Congress failed to reach a deal to continue the program.

In his first public appearance since returning from a two-week vacation, Obama excoriated the argument — put forward by some conservatives — that offering insurance to the long-term unemployed “saps their motivation to get a new job.”

“That really sells the American people short,” he said.

Making both an economic argument and a “moral case” for extending the benefits, Obama said Americans believe in helping each other in the case of misfortune.

“We know that, there but for the grace of God, go I,” he said.
