God’s Political Failures

Every presidential candidate who was directly endorsed by God was failure.  They will likely not become president in 2012, and, probably will not ever become president.  Of the most recent crop, the only Republican who did not make the claim to have been endorsed by God, Mitt Romney, will be the Republican candidate for president.
