Democratic Party Platform By the Numbers: God--Zero; Obama--200

God does not appear in the Democratic Party's 2012 Platform 

Barak Obama is mentioned by name over 200 times in the Democratic Party's 2012 platform, appearing on 38 pages of the 40 page document. 

God is absent.

 In 2008, the party platform read:
We need a government that stands up for the hopes, values, and interests of working people, and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.
But that plank has been rewritten to remove the phrase "God-given."

"We gather to reclaim the basic bargain that built the largest middle class and the most prosperous nation on Earth – the simple principle that in America, hard work should pay off, responsibility should be rewarded, and each one of us should be able to go as far as our talent and drive take us,” the platform now reads.

  1. There is more religious value, character, and conviction in Mr. Obama's pinky finger than there was the whole Republican Convention at Tampa.
