Deeply religious Obama just can't squeeze in one more thing and skips National Day of Prayer

Pictured: Obama and Biden order burgers at Ray's Hell Burger. The president's handlers surreptitiously placed a teleprompter on the counter cleverly disguised as a chalk board menu.


Remember when McCain Called for a debate delay during the campaign in order to focus on the blossoming financial crisis? Obama's teleprompter instructed him to rebuff McCain's request to fly back to Washington, thus winning him political points.

September 24, 2008, in response to McCain:
OBAMA: "A president is going to have to deal with more than one thing at a time."

He added: "If there were ever a time for both candidates to hold a debate before the American people about this serious challenge, it is now."

Fast forward: President Obama makes a guest appearance on the 'Tonight Show’ to chat it up with Leno and to make fun of Special Olympian bowlers. This was the first time a sitting president makes such an appearance, and so he was asked whether the television stint distracted from his work to fix the economy.

March. 19, 2009, in response to his critics:
OBAMA: "I can do more than one thing at a time and am working on a host of issues, including climate change and health care reform."

Joe "The Simple-minded democrat": See there!? Obama is a multi-tasker. Unlike Bush, President Obama can walk and chew gum at the same time! Ha Ha!

Apparently, even our SUPER HUMAN president has his limits, for while he had time to wait in line yesterday for a hamburger with his vice president (and the full regiment of enchanted press corp followers covering this huge story and taking pictures from every angle), he just can't seem to make room for God.

Obama to be prayer day no-show
"President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning."

OBAMA: You thought the Hell burger that I had for lunch yesterday was big, well I've got a lot more on my plate today. Get this... I will be spending the day signing a proclamation honoring the day. I couldn't possibly work in one more thing. Well, I might have time to walk Bo, but that's it! Maybe a few quick smokes on the back porch, but other than that, my schedule is booked! My lack of attendance at the prayer service should in no way insinuate that I harbor utter disdain for those bitter clingers.

PRESS SEC. GIBBS: "Prayer is something the president does every day. We're doing a proclamation, which I know that many administrations in the past have done. The proclamation was Mr. Obama's choice. That's the way the president will publicly observe National Prayer Day - privately, he'll pray as he does every day."

If there were ever a time for both candidates The President to hold a debate pray with the American people during these serious challenges, it is now.

"...Privately, he'll pray as he does every day."

Kneeling on a rug facing East, no doubt.

I can't believe he did this, thanks. Plus, I was sitting here wondering if I should get over to our local event and thinking "Naaa..." Maybe I will after all. The darned thing starts at 7 AM here!!

Have you noticed there's been no "First Sunday in Washington GO TO CHURCH DAY holding each others' hands and shaking hands with the new pastor for the Obamas"? He has every right to do what he wants, but with his background, wouldn't you have thought they'd maybe at least FAKE attending a church? "we haven't found one we like"....in DC??
It just occurred to me that it might be a problem if he picks an all Black church and another problem if he chooses a White church; got to be politically correct.(tongue in my cheek here)

Ya, I'm sure Obama's praying today........five TIMES today.

Super post, DaBlade...

How are they ever going to find a church they like if they never visit any of them?

Since he thinks he is the 'messiah' (as you noticed, no caps)he probably thinks he doesn't need any prayer, especially to SOMEONE better than him.

Is anyone really surprised?

RightKlik said...

Too many Christians at the National Day of Prayer. Do you have any idea what that would do to his image?

Kneeling on a rug facing East, no doubt.I was already there.

Z- That is an excellent point. I do wonder why he isn't faking it. Then again, his biggest constituencies are atheists, humanists, and 55% of catholics, so why mess that mix up? Better to play it safe than fake that he prays to God and risk losing his base. That's the Republicans problem.

Cartman-glad you like!
Linda- You're so right. WE are supposed to pray to him (lower case:)

American Girl- obama is quickly losing any ability to surprise us. Still... The collective non-reactions to this clown tell more about us as a country and how far we have fallen. Obama has earned my contempt and I will darn well make sure he gets it in spades.
RK- ah ha. I should have read ahead. That is where I was going!

Chuck- Can you recommend a good rug stain remover?
