Bill Hemmer Say Congressional Prayer Caucus Is Awesome

Reported by Priscilla - November 4, 2011 -

"God" is very important to the GOP right. Who cares about unemployment, cuts to education/police/fire personnel due to budget constraints, a widening income inequality, foreclosures. There are more important priorities. Congress had to take and make the time to reaffirm America's godly motto "In God We Trust," as a result of a congressional vote taken earlier this week. Yesterday, alleged Fox "news" anchor, Bill Hemmer, positively gushed Fox News Christian anchor fellowship (cept for Chris Wallace and Greta are there any other kinds of Fox anchors?) with Congressiona GOP Rep. Tom Price, a member of the Congressional Prayer Caucus. Price was there to defend God's BFF's from the anti-God president who, in the words of the Fox video title, "mocked" the congress for voting for the motto resolution when they should be focused on jobs and the economy. Hemmer did his trademark glowing smile as he lobbed softballs and let Price promote the newest right wing meme.

Price claimed that the motto thing was to "remind" President Obama that "In God We Trust" is the national motto and not "E Pluribus Unum." The Prayer Caucus is very concerned about how nasty secularists are trying to take "God" away from God loving Merkins. According to the Prayer Caucus website, President Obama, in a speech given in the scary Muslim country of Indonesia, said that the national motto was "E Pluribus Unum." (Actually, the speech said "our motto" - not "national motto" but whatever). Not mentioned by Price is that "E Plurius Unum" is on the National Seal of the US and considered the "de-facto" motto of the country until "In God We Trust" was adopted in 1956, during a surge of God frenzy which also resulted in the insertion of "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance and the trusting God jargon on all money.

But you didn't hear any of that from Price who spent most of the time peddling the new GOP right wing narrative about how the House has sent 15 bills to the Senate where they are still pending. What was really priceless, though, was Bill Hemmer's initial comment to Price about the Prayer Caucus which about which he thinks that "if there's any caucus to be in on the hill, that would bring you the best."

Comment: Thank God our congress, inspired by its Prayer Caucus, has its priorities in the right place.
