The Romney campaign is in desperation mode. Paul Ryan told a group of Evangelical Christians that President Obama’s second term plans threaten Judeo-Christian values. That’s the equivalent of throwing a Hail Mary pass, hoping it will stick. Yeah, people like Pastor Charles Stanley should drink that Kool-Aid fast. I’m sure he could come up with some Scriptures to bolster Ryan’s assertion. Zeke Miller reports, this was “a dramatic charge aimed at the Republican base, and delivered during a conference call that did not appear on his public schedule.” Um, Paul Ryan is trying to paint President Obama as an outsider. The Romney campaign’s race-baiting is so transparent.
In his remarks to what organizers said were tens of thousands of members of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, Ryan said that President Barack Obama’s path for the next four years is a “dangerous” one.
“[It is] a path that compromises those values — those Judeo-Christian values that made us a great nation in the first place,” he said, referring to religious liberty and Obamacare.
On the call, Ryan said he has been “sustained” on the campaign trail by the people he has met who tell him that they are praying for him. “I can’t tell you how important it is to have the prayers of the tens of thousands of people we meet across the country,” Ryan said. Source: Buzzfeed
The candidates shouldn’t be spouting religion in an election. Lost on Paul Ryan is that he has violated one of the basic charges of the Roman Catholic faith — to take care of the poor. His view is that 30 percent are takers, in keeping with Mitt Romney’s 47 percent of Americans are deadbeats. Never mind the fact that these right wing evangelicals treat women with little regard and spit on our rights. The government has no place in anyone’s personal life and shouldn’t be telling a woman she can’t have an abortion or get contraceptive through her insurance.’ By the way, I am pretty sure people are also praying for President Obama and Joe Biden to win the election.
