Considering the languid tone, explain to Syrians today how tiresome 20 debates between Presidential candidates are and then consider what a rare blessing this process is in relation to world history.

While mocking "this guy" Gingrich and his record why not explain to the audience what he is referring to in that sound bite because they will probably be ignorant of Obama's record in the Illinois state senate thanks to the media which is much more exacting this year than in 2008.

You are confusing how many believe in "evil" versus how many believe in "Satan." Many people believe in evil - only approximately 35% of Catholics believe in Satan.
