That whole mess about take God out, put God back, take Jerusalem out... It's funny, and it's to be expected. Sure I believe Obama was OK with it until he got word that subtracting God was a net vote loser. Obama just wanted to appease his base, the antisemitic atheists. And inside the Obama bubble, it seemed like a good idea.
But the most telling bit was when they corrected it. People have been playing the video because the delegates seem to be booing God and Jerusalem. But even more interesting is the voice vote.
Antonio Villaraigosa had to take the vote three times and it sounded to me like it was split 50-50. The language change needed a two-thirds majority to pass. But the word had come down to change it. What to do? Well Villaraigosa followed orders. He pretended that he heard a two-thirds majority. He demonstrated that the President was OK with cheating.
So, in one swoop they've managed to offend Christians, Jews, and atheists. And for a cherry on top, they demonstrated their willingness to ignore the rules.
Democrats were OK with ignoring the rules (the Constitution) in order to make Catholic institutions buy birth control for their employees. It's just karma that they should get bit by Obama's dishonesty as well. Or should I say: "it's just a random coincidence (in a universe that just happened to evolve matter, space, planets, living organisms, mammals, man, and Democrats) that they should get bit by Obama's dishonesty as well."
