Isn't This Above His Pay Grade?

As Allahpundit, linking to a Politico item would say, dude:

President Barack Obama needs some outside help pushing health care reform, and he’s turning to rabbis to get it.

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.

We’re His partners now? I know The One once promised to slow the rise of the oceans and heal the entire planet, but eschatological hyperbole aside, I missed the memo when the playing field was evened.
