from James Taranto/WSJ:
Yesterday we noted that President Obama, not as part of a deliberate strategy to counter the false impression that he’s a Muslim, talked at some length during one of his back-yard shindigs about his ostensible Christian faith. Among things, the president said that “the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead–being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me.“
ahahahaha! Isn’t that funny. He misquotes the intent of the Biblical Golden Rule which says:
“Do to others as you would have them do to you.”
This is not about tit for tat, unless you’re theObama. For him, it’s all about HIM: how he’s treated by someone will determine how he treats others.
Reminds me of his other famous Chicago-style maxim: “If they bring a knife to the fight, you bring a gun.”
Or how about this very famous misquote:
These are all statements and misstatements that reflect the kind of man, in his heart of hearts, that he really is.
From the caption at YouTube:
A Republican staffer (and Iraq War vet) has hot coffee poured down his back by a Strickland supporter while trying to videotape Gov. Strickland’s remarks at a campaign event. The assailant later returns to make an obscene gesture. Authorities are trying to identify the man in this video. If you can assist, contact the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office at (740) 355-8245.
A caller to the Mark Levin show mentioned this video today:
This is amazingly simple and should explain to anyone who doesn’t understand why the central government has no place in the building of cars, pencils or the production of any goods.
