    from President Obama's address to the nation.

    Is it me, or did his address not end with a long diatribe telling us to pray?

    I've noticed the prayer hasn't worked so well yet.

    In fact, I'm seeing reports that the gush might continue for another 1 to 2 years.

    •  But the prayer was not legitimated (0+ / 0-)

      by lawmakers. Since God is a Republican, He only hears prayers from elected representatives, and not private petitions.

      It's in the invisible books of the Bible.

    •  IMO, "diatribe" is not the word to use at all (3+ / 0-)

      and I doubt he was "telling" people to pray.  I think he wanted to give comfort to the people most directly affected by the spill in terms that were familiar to them.

      •  It was intended (0+ / 0-)

        to reach the swing voting religious bloc; I get that. I saw some polling that suggests it is working.

        To me, it was a long to very long anecdote that didn't resonate.

        But I was one who preferred Rachel's version of that speech.
