John McCain says he may postpone convention ... and he's praying about it

John McCain said the Republican National Convention may be postponed Hurricane Gustav approaches New Orleans, Politico reports.

"It just wouldn't be appropriate to have a festive occasion while a near-tragedy or a terrible challenge is presented in the form of a natural disaster," McCain told Chris Wallace of "Fox News Sunday," in an interview taped for tomorrow. "So we're monitoring it from day to day and I'm saying a few prayers, too."

President Bush, first lady Laura Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney are scheduled to speak on Monday, the convention's opening day. Just three years ago, McCain was celebrating his birthday with Bush when floods were hitting New Orleans.

Larry Sabato, director of the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia at Charlottesville, told the San Antonio Express-News that there's too much time, money, and energy tied into the event to change it.

"Only the toughest partisan would criticize a convention for going on as scheduled. It's not like people can change a hurricane," Sabato told Peggy Fikac. "Maybe they should put Pat Robertson to work to pray it away."

It was publicized on MSNBC that Dr Gary Smalley was prayng that God would send rain on the outdoor acceptance speech for senator Obama. I dont think that this is the answer he was looking for.

You are so right. If Dr Gary Smalley's prayer request had come true at Denver, he would be an evangelical hero by now. His congregation will double by the week and more dollars added to his account. Now that the opposite occurred, and RNC has been affected, no one brings it up, not even the "liberal" media. This world of pastor-politicians.

What a world we live in!
