Remember when Obama thought that questions of religious import were "above my pay grade"? Or when the left thought that an American president shouldn't presume to act on behalf of the Lord? Not any more:

In a morning conference call with about 1000 rabbis from across the nation, Obama asked for aid: "I am going to need your help in accomplishing necessary reform," the President told the group, according to Rabbi Jack Moline, who tweeted his way through the phoner.

"We are God's partners in matters of life and death," Obama went on to say, according to Moline's real-time stream.

So if Obama's on God's team, which team is the other 54 percent of Americans on?
