In the midst of the faux controversy about Obama’s prayer note (did he deliberately release it to the press, or didn’t he), the ever-observant Melanie Phillips points out that there is, as usual, a gaping hole in the media where a fairly major story should be.
One final thought. President Bush was said to be a dangerous
nut-case because he allegedly spoke to God – ie, prayed – from whom he
imagined he was taking instructions. Barack Obama, however, has
actually asked the Almighty – in a handwritten note that he purportedly
imagines will be read by the Divine eyes — to
make me an instrument of your will.
Well now, there’s a point. An accusation by a former Palestinian Authority man and subseqently denied even by the PA themselves that Bush had proclaimed that he had heard the ‘voice of God’ was literally front page news in the Indie, complete with lurid speculation as to the possible mental health of the President. Yet, as Mel points out, there is nary a peep from them or any other MSM outlet when Obama says things like he is going to ‘heal the oceans’ or wishes to be an instrument of God’s will.
Bush’s supposed religious mania has been (no pun intended) an article of faith with the Left ever since that point, yet their great anti-religious champions such as the Dawk and the Indie are utterly silent on the matter, as they are with so many of the utterances of their new political Messiah. No such excoriation for Obama – once again the media proves that it is full of the most blatant hypocrisy imaginable.
