God God God God God God

I think what Obama needs to do is to wake up every morning, go to the Oval Office, tap in to all the TV network feeds, sit and look sternly at the television camera, and chant "God God God God God God God God.  Have a nice day."

Because, for some unknown (comical) reason, the wingnuts bounce off the wall every time Obama doesn't mention God.

Here is Fox News' Todd Starnes going ballistic because Obama didn't mention God in his 11th Anniversary of 9/11 Proclamation.


ZOMG!!!!  No GOD!  That just proves that Obama is a Muslin atheist socialist… who was probably behind the 9/11 attacks himself!

Charles at LGF wondered if Bush mentioned God during his 9/11 Proclamations:

The answer was rather quick to find at Wikipedia in the Patriot Day entry.

It turns out that George W. Bush did not mention God for his "Presidential Proclamation–Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance" for 5 of 8 such proclamations — meaning that the majority of these proclamations did not include the word "God."

He mentioned it in the initial proclamation in 2001, and in the years 2004 and 2005.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2002.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2003.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2006.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2007.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2008.


Obviously, what happened was the Obama retroactively edited Bush's proclamations.  Oh, the horror!

UPDATE:  Besides, it's not really true.  Here's some of Obama's remarks prior to the proclamation — bold by me:

Eleven years ago, America confronted one of our darkest days. The events of September 11, 2001, brought collapsing towers in Manhattan and billowing smoke at the Pentagon, wreckage on a Pennsylvania field, and deep ache to the soul of our Nation. Nearly 3,000 innocent people lost their lives that morning; still more gave theirs in service during the hours, days, and years that followed. All were loved, and none will be forgotten. On these days of prayer and remembrance, we mourn again the men, women, and children who were taken from us with terrible swiftness, stand with their friends and family, honor the courageous patriots who responded in our country's moment of need, and, with God's grace, rededicate ourselves to a spirit of unity and renewal.


On September 11, 2001, in our hour of grief, a Nation came together. No matter where we came from, what God we prayed to, or what race or ethnicity we were, we were united as one American family. This weekend, as we honor the memory of those we have lost, let us summon that spirit once more. Let us renew our sense of common purpose. And let us reaffirm the bond we share as a people: that out of many, we are one.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 7 through Sunday, September 9, 2012, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance. I ask that the people of the United States honor and remember the victims of September 11, 2001, and their loved ones through prayer, contemplation, memorial services, the visiting of memorials, the ringing of bells, evening candlelight remembrance vigils, and other appropriate ceremonies and activities. I invite people around the world to participate in this commemoration.

Got that, Fox & Friends Morons?
