Has anyone seen Obama eating during the day since his vacation ?
Funny his multi week vacation starts with Ramadan............
Flew in a guy from St. Louis to host a pizza party.
I'm not kidding.
Someone just pointed out to me he went to the Prayer Breakfast but he blew everything else off — searched and found this:
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.
All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance.
For the past eight years, President George W. Bush invited selected Christian and Jewish leaders to the White House East Room, where he typically would give a short speech and several leaders offered prayers.
Obama White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that the president is simply reverting back to pre-Bush administration practice
So I assume that was “reaching out”, and the twin towers dropped when, a week later? Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that people don’t like you.
