The national media is once again expressing faux outrage and taking statements out of context. Down here in South Georgia we call it “pitchin a hissy fit.” This time it is over a passage of Scripture quoted by David Perdue at the Faith and Freedom Convention.
Perdue said that we should pray for President Obama. Then he quoted a portion of Psalm 109:8 “Let his days be few and let another have his office.
I watched it on C-Span. It was clear that he was referring to the remaining days in the office of President. He was smiling as he quoted it as a one-liner and the audience also laughed understanding it as humor.
No reasonable person could watch, hear, or even read the transcript and conclude that he was praying for the death of President Obama. Yet the howling left wing media looks for any opportunity to misrepresent statements and then demand an apology.
David Perdue owes no one any apology for adding political humor to a speech. If anyone apologizes it should be those who misrepresented what he said and falsely attributed ulterior motives.
Read it for yourself below and watch the video:
DAVID PERDUE: I think we are called to pray. I think we’re called to pray for our country, for our leaders, and yes, even our President. In his role as president I think we should pray for Barack Obama. But I think we need to be very specific about how we pray. We should pray like Psalms 109:8 says. It says, “Let his days be few, and let another have his office.”
DAVID PERDUE: In all seriousness, I believe that America is at a moment of crisis.
