Media Charges Romney With Implying Obama Wants God Off Coins

The fact is, there have been attempts, movements, whatever, to remove "In God We Trust" from our currency, just as there have been movements and attempts to remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance".

I have a question for Democrats. Do the actions of what appeared to be the majority of delegates at the DNC Convention regarding the inclusion of God in the Democrat platform reflect your views? Are you willing to admit, out loud, that God has no place in America?

Media Charges Romney With Implying Obama Wants God Off Coins
...Romney never...implied that Obama wanted to remove God from the pledge or the coinage. He simply stated his deep support for the role of God in our public discourse – a position at odds with large swaths of the Democratic Party base, and at odds with President Obama. The fact remains that President Obama is significantly more uncomfortable with the invocation of God in public life than Romney is. That’s why back in November 2011, Obama singled out a House vote to reaffirm the nation’s motto, “In God We Trust.” And just the year before, Obama mistakenly said our national motto is “E pluribus unum.”

After saying that the House shouldn’t spend time reaffirming “In God We Trust,” Obama added, “the phrase from the Bible is, ‘The lord helps those who helps themselves.’” Except that phrase isn’t from the Bible.

Does Obama have a God problem? Absolutely. And it’s that broader issue that Romney was seeking to highlight.
