Wasserman-Schultz dodges questions about why the DNC removed the 'G' word from their platform
newsmax ^ | Sept 5, 2012 | Patrick Hobin

Democratic National Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz refused to commit to an answer when pressed on whether the party removed the word “God” from its platform, according to the Washington Examiner. The Florida congresswoman was asked by CNN’s Piers Morgan if the removal of the word “God” was a “mistake.” “Well, we have a commitment through all faith traditions that our values are reflected in our policy and that means we should look out for the least of these, that we should fight for the middle class . . .,” she told Morgan. Wasserman Schulz refused to admit that it was a mistake, and said instead that “our values are reflected in our policies.” “The thing is, somebody has deliberately taken out the word God because it was in the last one,” Morgan said. “I can assure that that no one has deliberately taken God out of our platform.” Wasserman Schultz said, according to the Examiner. “So it was an accident.” Morgan said. Wasserman Schultz refused to answer. In 2008, the Democratic platform read, “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.” For 2012, the words “God-given” are removed: “We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us.”

Why would they bother to invoke God when they have Obama?
You have to realize there was probably an argument made that removing God would be a PR problem. And in spite of that they just couldn’t bring themselves to put it in.

Deb may have (accidentally) told the truth for the first time this week when she said, “our values are reflected in our policies.”

That’s why the Dems are gonna get stomped in the elections!

I am really surprised they did not insert the word allah where God used to be.

Marxism, of which the president and much of the demon-crat party is aligned, is atheist so why should anyone expect the demon-crats to include God in anything unless it is to demean.

It is no wonder these vermin absolutely must hide behind the Progressive or democrat label less they be exposed for the most anti-American group of individuals the country has known since we won our little spat with England.

It won’t take many more Democrat conventions before “Allah” crops up in their platform.

When they have an Antichrist-type promotion with twisting of Scripture, of course they're going to do something like this.

Their "artwork" and "calendar" reveal what their agenda has really been about. Not that it wasn't known before.

Of course the Democrats are not anti-GOD or against religion.

Why just check out any Democrat blog (IE Democrat Underground for instance) and see for your self how tolerant they are about GOD and religion.

And when you are done I want to talk to you about a great land deal in new development named Atlantis!!

Don't let her stunning beauty distract you. Pay attention to her policies, and to what she says.

If only their values were clearly outlined in their speeches and in their policies, and they were trying to convince everyone that those policies are superior,

instead of hiding what they really believe and what they really want to do (to us).

Rush said if they were honest they’d only get 30% of the vote. I’m thinking it would be closer to 10.

Any authoritarian government will not be able to coexist with any belief system that has an absolute, objective basis for judging right and wrong,

because authoritarian governments derive their power from the arbitrary application of force to impose their will on the populace.

Durbin has Lithuanian roots. They are a solid Catholic people. Dem Catholics hate it when they get called out for their political hypocrisy. That one will sting.

I don’t understand why anyone asks this woman anything. She is an extraordinary and unapologetic liar.

Has the ‘G’ word perhaps been removed because Barack Hussein does not allow competition?

You will never get a straight answer from any paid political hack. They do not have the luxury of being frank or honest. Its not their job and not in their character.

That makes it fun to watch them squirm, back-peddle, do spontaneous acrobatics and invent history and statistics out of thin air and do it like they mean it.

the removal of the word “God” was a “mistake.”

It was no mistake.The main goals of secular humanism are:

1) permissive morality
2) socialism
3) statism
4) one world government based on secular humanist principles

And, there is that great, huge, but quiet possibility that our Father, Himself, saw to it that his name be excluded because of those very policies that Wassarwoman spoke of. Perhaps God does not want to be associated with the filth in their platform. Who knows? Just sayin. Saw a comment about this on twitter and thought it was worthy of thought.

Dems ignore basic Christain values- They fail to protect and advocate killing them, they fail to protect the most defenseless, advocate perversion, condemn Israel, bear false witness (note debbiedo falsel quoting the Israeli Ambassador), etc.etc.etc. Geeeez. They read like a bunch of losers. People so jealous of genuine character they find repose in mucking in crap and mocking what they are not.
