The Men of the American Family Association Explain how George Clooney Swung the Election to Obama
American Family Association president Tim Wildmon and research director Ed Vitagliano today spoke to WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah about how they are all still astonished that Obama won re-election. Vitagliano apparently did his research into the Obama campaigns strategies, and figured out that “they hooked women to Obama through these Hollywood stars” like George Clooney and Sarah Jessica Parker. Vitagliano said that our “devolved” culture has made women voters simply think, “‘I love George Clooney, George Clooney loves President Obama, therefore I love President Obama.’” Farah concurred.. more here
After Obama’s Re-Election, Religious Right Demands Repentance and Resistance
Dejected, downcast and angry, conservatives have begun attacking the media and other Christians for not signing on to the anti-Obama campaign, maintaining that Obama’s re-election proves that America is experiencing moral breakdown. Family Research Council head Tony Perkins told talk show host Janet Mefferd that the election results reveal “symptoms of a deeper moral and spiritual problem that we’re facing in our nation,” and beseeched Christians not to just “go on the mountaintop and just wait for the Rapture.”
Mefferd even claimed that she does not believe America will survive an Obama second term and feared that death panels will try to kill her when she is older.
Mike Huckabee on Focus on the Family said conservatives experienced a “humiliating defeat” and must repent. more here

“Why should Vermont and Texas live under the same government?” he wrote. “Let each go her own way.” Morrison went on to express anger at the “maggots” who backed Obama, specifically calling out non-white voters, whom he accused of voting for the president on an “ethnic basis.” more here
