Theocrats to the left of me, theocrats to the right

President Obama, reacting to Republicans who had played the God card, proved that he could play it just as well:
Delivering yet another speech in front of a bridge in need of repair, Obama said House Republicans should work to put people back to work, instead of focusing on other measures that don’t create jobs, such as debating a commemorative baseball coin or legislation reaffirming the “In God We Trust” motto.

“That’s not putting people back to work,” Obama said as he stood before the Key Bridge that connects Washington, D.C., to Northern Virginia. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work.”
It's funny how God always agrees perfectly with what the person invoking His name wanted to believe anyway. And no, you may not ask how that person knows what God wants.

By the way, "God helps those who help themselves" is not in the Bible.
