Last Tuesday, during a speech in front of Organizing for Action officials and volunteers, President Obama told the group not be discouraged by partisan bickering because their work is divinely inspired:
Organizing for Action is essentially President Obama’s personal political arm, and he sought to mobilize the group ahead of the March 31 Obamacare deadline. According to Politico, about 4 million people have signed up for private healthcare plans under Obamacare, and the President used the speech to urge his supporters to help enroll as many people as possible before March 31.
“It’s hard work, but it’s God’s work to get his agenda jammed through,” Pat joked.
You may recall back in 2009 when Newsweek’s Evan Thomas likened President Obama to a “sort of God” during an appearance on Chris Matthew’s Hardball:
Glenn couldn’t help but question if any of these people regret casting their vote for President Obama now that they have had the chance to see his leadership (or lack thereof) in action.
“I wonder if he regrets saying that now,” Glenn pondered. “Are any of these guys going, ‘Geez, man. Boy, we’re in trouble. Boy, that was a wrong vote there, huh?’”
At least one Obama supporter seems to fall into that category. Last week, Glenn played the incredible testimony constitutional law expert and self-proclaimed Obama supporter Jonathan Turley delivered in front of a congressional hearing about the “constitutional tipping point” this country has reached.
“Jonathan Turley is a hero. He is a hero of mine. Here’s a guy who I doubt we agree with on… anything except, you know, maybe the Constitution. And that’s enough,” Glenn said. “But he says he supports the President, supports the President’s policies, just doesn’t support the way he’s doing all of them. And he’s ringing the warning bell. And yet, again, I haven’t heard anybody talk about him… Have you heard any Republican even go, ‘Hey, maybe we should listen to the constitutional scholars here who are saying that we’re at a constitutional tipping point?’”
