Ralph Reed: “There’s More Work to Be Done”

At the National Press Club the day after the election, Ralph Reed, founder and chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, criticized the Romney campaign and the Republican Party for “underperforming.” “We did our job,” said Reed. “But we can’t do the Republican Party’s job for them, and we can’t do the candidate’s job for him or her.”

    To everyone in the evangelical community that participated in the 2012 election , the freedom loving people and the other religious groups in America are very proud of the work that was carried out. God bless Ralph Reed and his group .

    Guess what Ralph, you are part of the reason the GOP lost the election. We remember your partnership with Jack Abramov delivering so called Christian voters for lobbying firms. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    Robert Sicilliano: “God bless Ralph Reed”? Does God know that Reed essentially used his “flock” as his own private hit squad to intimidate casino owners to cut him and his buddies in on their profits? Or did you not know of his involvement in that scam?

    Romney could not identify with the marginalized. Period. Obama’s governance stinks, but at least we know he’s felt our pain at some period of his life.

    And yet you lost. What does that say about the validity of your religious beliefs? Perhaps God isn’t exclusively on your side, or perhaps he doesn’t exist at all.

    So, seventy seven percent of 28% is only ~21% of the electorate who are “self-identified evangelical Christians who voted for Mitt Romney.” News Flash: Twenty-one percent of the electorate has never been and never WILL be the majority of voters.

    Why don’t you who are part of this 21% go read the RED sentences in your Bibles and then come back and explain why you think lowering taxes on the rich funded by raising taxes on the poor is a “Christian” value. Where exactly do you think Jesus of Nazareth would stand on cutting food stamps that enable poor children to eat, and especially if the reason for doing it is so millionaires can keep paying the lowest tax rates they’ve had since the 1920s?
