Breaking News: God Urges Rick Perry Not To Run For President

Describing Texas Gov. Rick Perry as grossly unqualified for the position, God, the Creator and Ruler of the Universe, urged Perry not to run for president of the United States Wednesday.

 “I prayed last night and asked the Lord to support my candidacy, and He said no,” Perry told reporters outside the Texas Capitol, explaining that God had cited the governor’s rejection of federal stimulus funds to expand state jobless benefits, his irresponsible speculation about Texas seceding from the union, and his overall lack of concrete solutions to nation’s problems as reasons why He could not endorse a Perry presidential bid.

“I believe God made some valid points about my lack of credentials, and He’s absolutely right. My extreme beliefs when it comes to social issues and states’ rights are not only disturbingly narrow-minded, but would also make me a horrible president.”

When reached for comment, God said He would not be present at Perry’s much-talked-about Christian day of prayer on Aug. 6, calling the governor’s use of his public office to endorse a religion both “irresponsible” and a violation of the Constitution.

Remember, God has Spoken!

Grover And ATR Admit That The Expiration Of Bush Tax Cuts Does Not Violate Their Anti-Tax Pledge

Via: Think Progress

Republicans have developed a cultish opposition to raising tax rates on the wealthy, consistently protecting over $1 trillion in tax breaks for corporate jets, hedge fund managers, horse breeders, etc. At the epicenter of this obstinacy is Americans For Tax Reform head Grover Norquist.

Shackling Republicans to his anti-tax pledge, Norquist is dictating to Republicans that they cannot close a single tax loophole or allow one tax cut to expire, not even to entice Democrats into agreeing to much larger spending cuts.

As Matt Yglesias explains, “Norquist’s apparent veto-power over congressional Republicans” would require them to make billions in cuts that increase unemployment, slow economic growth, endanger children, undermine safety and health, and weaken the social safety net in order to satisfy his anti-tax demands.

~

But there may be one chink in the Norquistian armor. The Washington Post editorial board reported this morning that Norquist himself
stated that:

Allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire in 2012 would not technically violate his pledge as . . .

“NOT CONTINUING a TAX CUT is NOT TECHNICALLY a TAX INCREASE”.
