Osama bin Robertson

You know, if Osama bin Laden had come out of hiding long enough to call for the killing of President Bush, it would be considered an intolerable, imminent terrorist threat upon the United States of America. The threat level would be raised, extra law enforcement would be dispatched and secret service agents would be more copious than fireants on a nursing home patient.

So, based on the measured and thoughtful Christian sentiments coming from Pat Robertson's mouth yesterday regarding the President of Venezuela, what are we to think? Did Robertson call for healing? For prayer? For diplomatic dialogue between nations? Not exactly.

No, Pat "Christian Coalition" Robertson said that Venezuelan President Hugo Sanchez should be...ASSASSINATED!

Now there's a downright Christian belief for you. Is it any wonder that the religious right is so supportive of the Iraq War? They've got this numbskull leading them.

Who said all terrorists are Muslim extremists? Looks like we've got our share of Christian extremist terrorists, as well. If only THEY'D flee to the caves of Tora Bora, too. Ahhhh, one can hope...or pray!

Exactly right. I've been reading bunches of blogs and you're the first who's mentioned the "What if?" he said "If President Bush thinks we're out to assassinate him, then I think we should do it. It would be cheaper than prolonging this endless war, and I don't think one drop of oil would stop flowing."

Unfortunately, the Bush administration only tried to "distance" itself from the Robertson comments, saying they didn't represent the views of the administration.

Instead, they should have, in no uncertain terms, denounced the comments and offered a stern rebuke to Robertson, who plays a major role in delivering the fundamentalist vote to the Republican party. I mean, we have an administration that constantly talks about the war on terror, but they wimp out when one of their own advocates terrorist activity...which I think the assassination of a foreign head of state would qualify as. It's more of the hypocrisy that seems to define the Bush administration and the Republican Party.
