Obama Asks For Prayers to Raise Taxes (Video)

Obama asked for prayers today to raise taxes on Americans.

Obama says he believes in prayer when he goes to church. He’s been to church maybe three times this year.

The President arrived in Thailand earlier today.

ABC reported:

Taking a break from deficit negotiations for a whirlwind tour of southeast Asia, President Obama joked this afternoon as he toured a sacred Buddhist temple that he could use some prayer to help reach a budget deal.

“We’re working on this budget, we’re going to need a lot of prayer for that,” the president told a monk at the Wat Pho Royal Monastery.

The president later explained the quip at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. “I always believe in prayer,” he said. “If a Buddhist monk is wishing me well, I’m going to take whatever good vibes he can give me to try to deal with some challenges back home.”

    My prayer is that Obama goes to hell sooner than later. There’s no 72 virgins in his future.

    I’m not a fan of Muslim prayers. My prayer is some truth finally comes out about the crew in the WH. I was the loser gone. Impeachment is one way.

    Our president was quoted as saying:
    ‘“I always believe in prayer,” he said. “If a Buddhist monk is wishing me well, I’m going to take whatever good vibes he can give me”

    I think any sincere Christian would have chosen different words: prayer is more substantial than ‘good vibes’. Further, prayer is answered by God, not by good vibes from the one praying for you.

    This is similar to ‘punished with a baby’ or ‘my Muslim faith’. A sincere Christian would not utter such words in a public setting.

    Best regards, Peter Warner.

    He’ll extend Bush tax cuts for one year then sock it to us in 2014 buy making new taxes retroactive for 2013 a la Clinton. Then finally in Nov 2014 we’ll have a GOP majority in Senate
    and impeachment will begin.

    If it isn’t perfectly clear already, Liberals do not want to fix anything. All they care about is securing and holding on to as much power as possible.

    Liberals are excellent politicians, but ‘politician’ is not meant as a compliment. The way that a “good lawyer” can get an obviously guilty person off of a murder charge, Liberals excel at rhetorical political warfare. They know how to make a slim majority ignore reality and vote on the basis of their wants. They are illusion makers. They create a new perception that the problems they were hired to fix, have been made better instead of worse.

    Liberals are good liars. And the critical component that made their deception possible was their accomplices in the media. Obama lies would go nowhere without the participation of the media.

    Obama Asks For Prayers to Raise Taxes

    He can sit on his prayer rug and HOPE.

  • mg4us

    We should answer his prayers for more taxes by taxing ALL those Democratic institutions that support him and his policies so dearly. .

    Like Actors, Concert Performers, Sports Players, Hollywood, TV Talking heads, Newspapers, faux-journalists, Goldman Sachs, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet as well as Unions

    I say a sur-tax on all of them and also on their services. . .

    Oh, by all means – pray for Bambi.

    Use Psalm 109:8.

  • Carol

    “Good vibes???”

    That’s terminology that atheists use, not Christians.

    Only God truly know the condition of one’s heart, but all the evidence shows that Obama isn’t a Christian in the true sense of the word.

    Please do not call Barry Sotero “President”, because he and the Demogangsters stole th election, and he is an illegal alien, and an impostor posing as President. The Demogangsters, who own and operate our Judiciary, got the cases against him fixed.

    This is how they stole the election of 2012:

    The Demogangsters have been flooding the nation with 3rd world aliens, starting in the 1960’s. As most of the 3rd aliens of darker-skinned races will ALWAYS vote for the Democratic party, no matter what, the Democratic party was able to increase the real number of registered Democratic voters massively through immigration.

    They have allowed almost 3 million aliens to enter this country legally every year, thus acquiring 30 million voters over the last decade, even though America is already the 3rd most populous nation on earth, by weakening our border and allowd the illegals to vote and steal the election using the Motor Voter Bill and electronic voting machines, which are made by Democratic party controlled corporations and all the votes are rigged.

    Good luck trying to sue for election fraud. The Democratic party also owns and operates the Judiciary, as 90% of the lawyers and therefore prosecutors and Judges are also Democrats and they are also a part of this criminal gang.

    The stupid Republican party went along with this immigration flood, and instead of working to ban immigration, the death knell of the Republican party, so they thus supported Demogangsters in bringing in more and more aliens to vote for their opponent!

    The Republican supported the Motor Voter Bill and electronic voting machines, all of which enabled the Demogangsters to steal the election and illegally usurp power (which makes all their laws, rules, regulations, statutes and orders and appointments all illegal and null and void).

    Also, Whites, who tend to be more Republican, conservative, stopped having children, but blacks and Mexicans, the majority of whom tend to be Democrats, have 3-10 each. Thus, the percent of whites in the population is declining.

    The Republican party will NEVER EVER win any votes from the 90% of the blacks and Mexicans and Asians, even by pandering to them or trying to “talk them into” becoming conservative, such as the promoting free enterprise and all that garbage.

    By supporting more immigration and amnesty, it will only help bring in more black and Mexican Democrats here and the Republican party (and America) are then finished.


    a. The Republicans must BAN ALL IMMIGRATION. America is the 3rd most populous nation on earth, overcrowded, facing severe shortages of basic resources such as water and land. Alienism is crime against humanity.

    Banning immigration is supported by 80% of the public, include immigrants, and democrats, as they do not want fresh aliens to come and steal their jobs. This will make the Republican party popular with all and especially its core voter base, the white majority, which is totally against more immigration or it will otherwise lose the white majority for ever, as 3rd world aliens will soon outnumber them.

    b. We must amend the constitution to allow binding superseding national referenda so people can ban immigration directly.

    c. Whites must have more children, 5-10 each to restore white percent to over 80, for their own safety and preservation.

    The Republican party must be the CONSERVATIVE and PATRIOTIC alternative to the evil alienist Democratic party.

    If you are in a small town and there is a large popular burger joint, selling the best burgers at the best price, you will not win by trying to imitate them; you must be an alternative and try to sell pizza instead, so those who do not like burgers can come to you.

    The left-wing nuts who are telling the Republican party to try to become like Democrats to win are basically telling it to drink more of the poison that is killing it!
