Why is God so bad at picking GOP candidates?

    Interesting observations from a blog article:

    "As of writing this, right-wing theocrat Republican presidential candidate, Rick Santorum is announcing that he is "suspending" his campaign. In March, Santorum's wife Karen stated that "...when God asks something – you do it" for why her husband is running for office.

    Yet, God has also asked Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, and Rick Perry to run as well.

    All have dropped out.

    As far as I can tell, the Paul, Gingrich and frontrunner Romney campaigns have not stated that God asked their respective candidates to run.

    For those keeping track at home the score is like this:

    Summoned by God: 0-4
    Not summoned by God: 3-0"

    Of course no one takes the GOP candidates seriously when they claim they were chosen by God. Do they?
    Do Republicans just pretend this stuff is not ridiculous, or are they really that gullible?
    Wouldn't sincere people of faith be offended by these kind of transparent, self-serving lies?
    (The idea of God picking rambling fool/sexual predator Herman Cain to lead our nation is the most absurd thing I can think of. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif:lolicon_smile.gif

    Sadly, I think there are many people who do take their claims seriously. These are the same people who live in Social Security and Medicaid but don't want "no government hand outs" and give their pittance to the local Mega Church millionaire who thinks Jesus asked the lepers for a co-pay.

    I am a believer and I do think that people can be called by God to do certain works but it's not like he calls you on the phone. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I'll tell you "Why God is so bac at picking GOP Candidates" !!!


    Because 'God' don't have a 'horse in that race' !!! LOL !! He could care damn less !!!!

    And can you imagine if there is some god looking down on us from afar, just how embarassed he is to be supposedly represented by, Santorum, Palin, Gingrich, Perry and a host of other repubs that have claimed being chosen by god. He must be rolling over and over at the very thought.
