Bachmann channeling Robertson

 Is Michele Bachmann channeling Pat Robertson? Preacher Pat has been generous in sharing with us his private conversations with God that reveal divine dabbling in natural and man-made disasters. Those hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes and terror attacks are punishment for liberal policies.  

His spiritual spawn, the Minnesota congresswoman and presidential wannabe, said last week's earthquake and hurricane are God's message to "rein in the spending."

Didn't know God was such a passionate fiscal conservative and Tea Party backer, did you?  Here's what Bachmann had to say in a Florida speech the other day:

"I don't know how much God has to do to get the attention of the politicians. We've had an earthquake; we've had a hurricane. He said, 'Are you going to start listening to me here?' Listen to the American people because the American people are roaring right now. They know government is on a morbid obesity diet and we've got to rein in the spending."

Congresswoman Bachmann's reference to Tropical Storm Irene was obviously a political metaphor, which all her listeners and readers understood. But Team Obama media mouthpieces have tried to pervert the clear meaning of her language that the the Obama Administration is systematically blocking the development of U.S. energy resources while grossly overspending money it doesn't have. From Abrahamn Lincoln through Winston Churchill and FDR, top political leaders have routinely used God language in political metaphor.

American Jews and Israel have so many friends in politics (like B. Hussein Obama) that they think they can sneer at the few good friends they have.
How pathetic
