President Barack Obama has found himself in hot water for taking the Lord’s name in vain. A YouTube video has quickly gone viral of Obama laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier during Veteran’s Day services. After laying the wreath, he exits into a building and is heard saying “Jesus” off-camera.
Obama’s “Jesus bomb” outraged patriots and religious conservatives who thought the President was out of line for using the Lord’s name in vain during the occasion. The YouTube video of the slip also proved to be unpopular and received a significantly larger amount of thumbs down than thumbs up.
“The one time he acknowledges the Lord is to profane His name. And at Arlington National Cemetery, on hallowed ground,” wrote one message board user. “This from the man our armed forces look to as their commander-in-chief and leader.” Horrifyingly unpresidential conduct. Another user wrote that “anyone who believed this pospotus was a CHRISTian needs to have their mind checked for a tumor.”
However, it seems that Obama is even struggling to win Democrats over these days. The website for the Affordable Care Act continues to struggle with glitches that could take weeks to fix, preventing people from signing up for ObamaCare in the process. The White House reportedly hoped for 500,000 people to register for the plan by the end of October, but only 40,000 people have registered so far. There is also the possibility that the ongoing website glitches may not even be fixed by the end of the year, which is causing concern among Democratic leaders that the rollout difficulties could have an impact on the upcoming primaries.
