It figures. If you’ve got your own cult of personality, you might as well have your own bible.
While there are plenty of Bible verses to mention while discussing immigration, President Obama on Tuesday quoted one which isn’t so great, mainly because it’s not real. “The good book says don’t throw stones at glass houses, or make sure we’re looking at the log in our eye before we are pointing out the moat in other folks eyes,” Obama said during a speech in Nashville.
Please tell me he said “mote” and not moat. It would just be too depressing if we were actually living in Idiocracy and Das Kapital at the same time.
As far as throwing stones at glass houses, Obama’s good book seems to have been written by Chaucer. But it’s a safe bet that he doesn’t know who that is.
If George W. Bush had some said something that idiotic, there would be entire books written about it and a series of Saturday Night Live skits featuring him claiming that common expressions were bible verses. But Obama is far too smart to be mocked. There just isn’t anything funny about him we’re told.
Not a thing.
That’s what the good book says. “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.”
