Oh yeah--throw God in there somewhere

In case you need a little pain in your life to make you feel alive, try watching the democrats attempt to amend their platform at their delegate convention.

Somehow they neglected US support for Israel by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. So they threw that in. That was one amendment.

But attention was drawn to the fact that they apparently had somehow left out God from their platform. Perhaps they felt they didn't need Him if they have Obama. I guess they got enough complaints or bad press that they decided to put Him in.  Here's how they did it:

Amendment 1: Page 32, line 48:  "We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential."

Seriously? I mean I am extremely grateful the Lord has provided work for my family, but THAT is how they sneak God into their platform? A mention of "God-given" potential in terms of working?  

And do they see the irony of this, considering the President recently waived the welfare work requirement?

Unbelievable.  But just as unbelievable, was the fact that such amendments require a two-thirds vote. Clearly they couldn't get it! Even after voting three times, trying each time to get the cheers of those in favor louder than the cheers of those opposed, there was still not two-thirds in favor.  So, what did they do about it? Passed it anyhow.  Typical Obama style.
