Today We Vote and Obama Comes to Town to Tell Us How

Before I share a few thoughts on today's election and President Obama's visit to Seattle today to tell us how we ought to vote---- and to pick up money for the road ahead, a heads up on two important national news stories.

First, President Obama is parsing words, again. This time it's over his comments at a White House dinner to celebrate the start of Muslim Ramadan, regarding the
Mosque at Ground Zero.

Friday: "Let me be clear: As a citizen and as a President, I believe that Muslims have the same right...to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan."

Outrage from the public, including his own Harry Reid.

Saturday: "I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making a decision to put a Mosque there."

Monday: Hamas agreed with the President and publicly backed the plan to build the Mosque at Ground Zero.

Tuesday: On to Seattle to raise money for Patty Murray. And to point out that Republicans are obstructing while his party is acting. He will also tell you to forget Rossi, Didier, Akers and vote to send Murray back to DC because he needs her.

And secondly, a federal appeals court put
California's homosexual "marriage" on hold, indefinitely, pending the appeal.

So today we vote. Oh, I know many of you have mailed in your ballot weeks ago and some are busily dropping them off or getting them postmarked today. But today, they begin counting and reporting the results after the polls officially close this evening. Today is election day.

We will be giving updated reports and links on our website this evening as they become available.

Our position on this primary has been to strongly advocate for people to become informed, to be prayerful and to be very discerning regarding their vote.

In some races there are several highly qualified candidates. We sincerely believe that as Christian, conservative voters become informed and prayerful, they will make wise decisions. And God will lead them.

In other races it is very clear who Christians and conservatives should and will vote for.

Following today's election, Faith and Freedom will be working every day to help elect those who will support our values and principles and to defeat those who do not.

I know you will stand with us and all those qualified candidates, whether or not you voted for them in the primary.

Be Informed. Be Prayerful. Be Discerning. Be Active.
