In January of this year, televangelist Pat Robertson informed his “700 Club” audience that God had revealed the results of the 2012 election to him in a vision, implying broadly at the time that the Almighty was less than pleased with President Barack Obama. According to Right Wing Watch, Robertson recanted on Wednesday, responding to a viewer question about his false prediction, saying he “missed” God’s message about the election result.
“So many of us miss God, I won’t get into great detail about elections but I sure did miss it, I thought I heard from God, I thought I had heard clearly from God, what happened? What intervenes? Why?” Robertson said. “You ask God, how did I miss it? Well, we all do and I’ve had a lot of practice.”

“You ask God, how did I miss it? Well, we all do ...."
Pat, with that statement,are you implying that every prophet who claims to have heard the word of God may have 'missed it'?

That's what your God thinks should happen to false prophets. I don't think God would accept that you missed what he said.

This isn't remotely the only failed prophecy Pats done, and that's tip on top of the nearless endless amounts of bad predictions and history wrongness he expels.

Just admit it, you were wrong. Come on, its not that hard.

I sure did miss it
So in other words you're saying that God loves Obama and is very pleased with him, or were you perhaps listening to (oh my gosh), Satan?
But if it was Satan you were listening to and he said God was upset with Obama, then that too means loves Obama and is very pleased with him, doesn't it?
Any way around, you lose and Obama wins, just like on November 6.

If Pat is seeing "visions" or hearing "voices," he is either lying or needs to be in psychiatric care.

Q: What's the difference between Pat Robertson and a mental patient?
A: For the latter, there is still some hope of recovery.

This reminds me of an old saying;
If you are talking to God, you are praying. If God talks to you, you are schizophrenic.
Take a guess which one Pat is.
