Jed Lewison at Daily Kos observes how much can change in 18 short months and poses a good question. The following is a transcript from Glenn Beck 18 months ago.
And here’s another part of this poll. Most people say they have said a prayer for the troops, 87%. Oh, well, that’s big. 87% say they have said a prayer for the troops. Another 77% say they have prayed that the war would end in Iraq. A much smaller majority, 54% of Americans, say they have prayed for the President. I don’t — I don’t understand this. Republicans, 74%, say they are twice as likely as Democrats at 37% to have included the President in their prayers. First of all, we should all be down on our knees in praying for the troops. We should all be down praying for an end to this war. We should all be down on our knees every day praying for the President and praying for members of congress. My family prays for the President and members of congress, our leaders in all parties, our leaders all around the world. My family prays for President Tom. How do you not pray for everyone? How do you not pray for your enemies? How do you not understand that we all need guidance from God? What has happened to our country?
Yes, Glenn. What has happened to our country?
