No, no, not a swipe,. I’ve said throughout the campaign and before, there’s no question about where he was born. He was born in the U.S. This was fun about us, and coming home. And humor, you know — we’ve got to have a little humor in a campaign.”

Obama campaign spokesperson Ben LaBolt quickly denounced the remark,

embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

God our Father,
Giver of life,
we entrust the United States of America to Your loving care.

You are the rock on which this Nation was founded.
You alone are the true source of our cherished rights to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Reclaim this land for Your glory and dwell among Your people.
 
Send Your Spirit to touch the hearts of our nations leaders.
Open their minds to the great worth of human life
and the responsibilities that accompany human freedom.
Remind Your people who true happiness is rooted in seeking
and doing Your will.

Through the intercession of Jesus Christ
grant us the courage to reject the “culture of death.”
Lead us into a new millennium of life.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.

In this I pray

amen
