RUSH: We went back to the audio archives here, folks, ’cause if you want to know what the left or what Democrats really think of God-d in politics, we have three sound bites for you. November 5 of 2003, and also December 7th of 2003, on two separate occasions, from Howard Dean, a presidential candidate at the time. This is a montage of things he said on both of those days. He said this.
DEAN: We have gotta stop having our elections in the south based on guns, God and gays!
DEAN: Why can’t we talk about jobs, health care and education, which is what we all have in common, instead of allowing the Republicans to consistently divide us by talking about guns, God, gays, and all this controversial social stuff that we’re not going to come to an agreement on?
RUSH: Yep, yep, yep. Why do we have to..? God gets in the mix here and messes everything up. Noooo. All of a sudden now the Democrats think that they have to show you that they believe in God. Here’s John F. Kerry (who served in Vietnam) on February 28, 2004. It’s a debate on CBS, a Democrat presidential debate with Dan Rather. Elisabeth Bumiller of the New York Times says to John Kerry, ‘President Bush has said that freedom and fear have always been at war. God is not neutral between them. He’s made clear in his speeches he feels God is on America’s side. Is God on America’s side?’
KERRY: God will…uh… Look, I think… I believe in God, but I don’t believe the way President Bush does in invoking it all the time in that way. I think it is… We pray that God is on our side, and we pray hard, and God, ummm, has been on our side through most of our existence.
RUSH: Yeah, well, you sounded like you just agreed with President Bush there. Yeah, ‘God has been on our side through most of our existence.’ That was a great follow-up opportunity: Well, when was God not on our side, Senator Kerry? Vietnam? (Laughing.) When you were there?’ When has God not been on our side? Another question, a montage of Kerry talking about God from a debate October 13th, 2004, in Tempe, Arizona.
KERRY: We’re all God’s children. … They felt God had made them. … I believe that choice is between a woman, God. … As I said, I grew up a Catholic. I was an altar boy. … There’s a great passage of the Bible. … But I know this, God’s work must truly be our own. He just said that freedom is a gift from the Almighty. Everything is a gift from the Almighty. .. And as I mentioned the words of the Bible, the greatest commandments are love the Lord your God. … And with faith in God … And God bless the United States of America.
RUSH: I’m sorry, folks, it just doesn’t sound like there’s a whole lot of conviction behind any of this. It sounds like, ‘Okay, let me start talking and see if I wander into a substantive thought here by accident.’ It sounds like a roll of the dice with the syllables. It just doesn’t so you would there’s a whole lot of conviction.
