Bravo Dear Sir, Bravo – Georgia Congressman Walks Out On Obama…

President Obama has changed the ticket for 2012.  He has removed Joe Biden and replaced him with his interpretation of Jesus Christ.

(The Hill) — Republican Rep. Phil Gingrey (Ga.) walked out of President Obama’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, his spokeswoman confirmed to The Hill. Jen Talaber said the five-term lawmaker “left quietly” in the middle of the president’s remarks.

“He was disturbed and offended by the president’s use of prayer and reflection time for partisan politics and class warfare,” Talaber said. “Rep. Gingrey enjoyed listening to the keynote speaker and found the breakfast to be inspiring until President Obama began politicking.”

At the breakfast, Obama tried to tie some of the proposals from his State of the Union address, such as everyone paying their fair share in taxes, to Biblical teachings.

“When I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street, when I talk about making sure insurance companies aren’t discriminating against those who are already sick, or making sure that unscrupulous lenders aren’t taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it’ll make the economy stronger for everybody,” Obama said. “But I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years, and I believe in God’s command to love thy neighbor as thyself.”

Talaber said Gingrey listened to several minutes of the speech before he “slipped out” because he found the perceived politicking “inappropriate.”

“There are 364 other days a year in which to do that,” she said. “While he commends the president for his attendance, Rep. Gingrey wanted to hear what was in his heart and not campaign rhetoric. He was disappointed that the president seemed to be unaware of the reason so many gathered there today.”

  1. Just sent the guy $100 bucks along with my sincere appreciation for standing on principle. Never heard of the guy before, never known of him before today. But I’m darn willing to stand next to anyone, and support anyone who finally does the right thing.

    Steel resolve.

    It would be novel if he could get others like him to follow suit.

      If he could…well, it would definitely be a sign to us Americans which one of them were taking Obama’s side or not. We need to see their loyalty. Now. No more curtsy, no more polite nodding with affection or due diligence. No more. We need to see their flags. Now. If they can’t or won’t show a flag of loyalty, sh00t the fuckers down the next election. Get new ones in to replace them.

  4. Well, maybe Obama will end up on his own Chicago Jesus TV Network after he leaves office. He could bring in Rev. Wright as his Ed McMahon-esque sidekick and crowd stirrer-upper. Ol’ Barry could out-shuck and out-hustle Rev. Jesse, Rev. Owl and even old Benny Hinn. Hey, if Benny can raise the dead, so can Chicago Jesus! If Rev. Tilton can sell Magic Jamba Juice to heal the sick and lame, I have no doubt that Michele can whoop up something equally potent. Bill Clinton can teach Obama to lay hands on…. Uh, strike that last sentence. Anyway, y’all get my drift.

    This POS has redefined unscrupulous. I think the USA needs to dig up Nixon, Grant, Harding and, hell, even old Huey Long, and apologize to them for the names we’ve called ’em. Obama sets a new standard for smarmy.

    Watching some of the video of Obama’s lecture at the prayer breakfast, I am struck by the fact that he can not relate interpretations of Scripture without reading from his notes, while secularist and vitriolic rhetoric flows effortlessly from his mouth.

    Unlike the late, great President Reagan who inspired from his intelligence, and clear knowledge of and love for the Scriptures.
