he Devil goes down to Georgia on Super-Tuesday
February 28, 2012 - Ron Hart
By Ron Hart "Satan has his sights on the United States of America!" Rick Santorum With all the issues that matter (“it’s the economy stupid”) lying right in front of them, GOP frontrunners took the bait from Obama and spent weeks entangled in social issues. These highly divisive and contentious issues are, and remain: God, Guns, Gays and Contraception. I feel particularly well suited to speak on these issues because that happened also to be my high school prom theme. With $4 gas prices (the highest price ever in February), the economy anemic, trillion dollar deficits and people unemployed or underemployed, somehow Obama, with the help of his press agents in the media, tricked the GOP into arguing over their personal religious beliefs. It is a big loser for the GOP, and it creeps out many independent voters. As a result of all of this, Obama’s approval ratings skyrocketed ten points to a two-year peak of 51% by just sitting there. In one week, Obama has gone from polling in a dead heat against the leading GOP contenders to polling ten points ahead. Obama’s reelection strategy of simply not being the judgmental GOP candidates running against him is paying off. After Afghans killed more U.S. soldiers over a dubious discarding of old Korans, Obama apologized. He may actually be the most religious of all; it would take a real Christian to turn his cheek after being struck that many times in the face. Obama gains a lot of good will by being tolerant of all religions, even the ones who continue to build condos in East Jerusalem. Over the holidays, Obama reinforced his faith by telling his favorite Christmas story about an extraordinary child, born in a faraway place, who comes home to lead his people. The next day White House Press Secretary Jay Carney corrected the media press corps’ assumptions, and confirmed Obama was actually talking about Jesus. Democrats think Obama is Jesus, the GOP thinks he is a Muslim. If he was a real leader like Moses, he could bring peace to the Mid-East by arranging a three-way summit with himself. The only way Republicans should talk about this is in the broader context of facts in Charles Murray’s books, the most recent one being Coming Apart. His data-laced book The Bell Curve, drew spurious contempt as being racist. As we know, facts, by their very nature, are considered racists to the left. So in his latest book Murray focused only on whites, concluding that founding virtues like marriage, industriousness, honesty and religiosity define the successful in America. Dingy Harry Reid touched on religion last year when he said he does not know Hispanics could ever vote Republican. Let’s see: the GOP is pro-life, pro-work, pro-free market, pro-right-to-work, pro-family and blacks hold them in contempt. E-Harmony has a 99% happy marriage arrangement rate with less compatibility traits. God, per the candidate, told Palin, Bachmann and Cain to run for President; in voices only heard by them. Usually God reserves his endorsement for the general election. As Santorum said, Satan might well have come to America. How else would you explain the Kardashians? But to get into the theology thicket, by advocating the hard line Catholic construct that contraception is forbidden, is politically perilous. Santorum would do well to lay off his religious dogma and better explain his “take one for the team” RHINO voting record in the Senate. Santorum may have met Satan way back in the U.S. Senate: The devil was in a bind, ‘cos he was way behind and he was willin’ to make a deal. He came across this Jr. Senator, from PA who was playing it hot, and the devil jumped up on a hickory stump and said boy let me tell you what (to vote for). I got this prescription drug entitlement bill and a labor union’s dream, I bet you a pot of campaign gold against your soul, you will take one for the establishment team. My name is Ricky, and it might be a sin, but I will take your bet, I am going to regret, ‘cos I will be running for president again. Ironically, the only one in the race who has not sold his soul for a fiddle of gold is Ron Paul. High praise indeed for a man who really values gold---and the fiddle too.
