President Obama has said “pass this jobs bill” dozens if not hundreds of times over the past several weeks, and still Congress hasn’t passed the bill. Now a frustrated Obama has decided to kick it up a gear by invoking a higher authority:

He also sought to shame the Republican-controlled House by accusing its leaders of wasting time during a jobs crisis with debates over commemorative baseball coins and reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the country’s motto. The House has refused to consider Obama’s jobs bill.

“That’s not putting people back to work,” Obama said. “I trust in God, but God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work. There’s work to be done. There are workers ready to do it. The American people are behind this.”

God wants to see us help ourselves? Is this the same President who just warned of a painful era of self-reliance if he’s not re-elected?

Until action is taken on the jobs bill, apparently God also wants to see a slew of executive orders signed in order to work around Congress.

Update: Just got this Tweet speculating that Obama was merely speaking in the 3rd person.

Update II: WH Press Secretary Jay Carney tried to back up Obama on this and ended up serving himself a helping of fail.
