Posted on 04/25/2011 2:00:26 PM PDT by blueyon
White House press secretary Jay Carney was asked today why President Obama did not give a statement on Easter. He laughed it off. Barack Obama released statements for the Muslims holidays of Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, the Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha last year. Just last month he released a statement for the Persian Nowruz holiday.
The Hill has more:
Carney also scoffed at media reports calling out the White House for not releasing a statement commemorating Easter on Sunday, explaining Obama and his family attended church services in Washington.
The president went to church yesterday, it was well-covered. Im not sure if we put out a statement or not. He obviously personally celebrated Easter with his family, he said.

Who asked the question??? Gold star for them.
He might have been born in America but he is not American. Maybe he was born in the 54th state :)
I think you mean the 57th state.

Do you know how DemocRAT Presidents have observed Easter in recent years? On Easter Sunday in 1995, President Clinton called Monica Lewinski to service him immediately after returning from Easter services at church. On Easter Sunday in 2000, Janet Reno ordered that Elian Gonzales be taken by force from relatives in Miami and sent to Communist Cuba.
Obviously, Easter doesn’t matter to Democrats in D.C. and hasn’t for a while.
I don't know about you, but I had a chill go down my spine when I read about the massive lightning strikes over the White House on Easter Night.
It reminded me of the story of Belshazzar in the book of Daniel. MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN
He’s a pretend Christian; just as he’s a pretend capitalist. And for all we know, a pretend American.
No birth certificate; two social security numbers, one in 1975 in Hawaii when he worked in an ice cream shop, another issued two years later in Connecticut, where at that time, he’d never been.
No college transcripts. No college applications. Where did he get the money? Rumors are flying that he flunked out of schools in California and NY. How did he get into Harvard Law? What were his SATs and LSATs? Bush released all of his college stuff. Why can’t Obama?
We don’t know who this guy is.
If the President’s Press Secretary isn’t sure whether they put out a statement or not, he should be fired for incompetence.
That pretty much confirms that the church visit was nothing more than a campaign stop.
Jay Carney is a worm.
Yeh he went to another Whitey sucks, down with Whitey church. I guess as a Muslim he figures that doesn’t really count as attending a Christian church. He’s right.
When did you ever think you would live to see the day that the President of the United States would attend a church that preaches hate? Its beyond insane.
He is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an asshole.
LOL...you made me spit up Diet Pepsi on my keyboard!!
We get to infer that *he’s* Christian, while the world gets to realize that the United States of America didn’t honor Christians worldwide with any kind of recognition of their Holiest day whatsoever.
Hmmmm..... how nice of him. /s
“He is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an asshole.”
My new bumper sticker.....
What a junior. This administration is full of punky snotnosed idiots. I want them gone.
That was what struck me, too. I thought Gibbs was bad, but this guy is even more open in his contempt.
His own statements say he is Christian... His actions say he is Muslim. Muslims say it is okay to lie when necessary. You decide!
The entire administration’s strategy seems to revolve around contempt for those who even ask a question. The âparty approvedâ line was not followed, free thought partially snuck in, how contemptible...

“Ha ha ha ha ha”
Someone should ask Mr. Obama if he believes that Jesus Christ was actually resurrected from the grave and walked among men.
And yet you have idiots who, in states like MA and RI, overwhelmingly identify as Christian (Catholic) that vote “D” again and again, generation after generation.
He is, and always has been, a Muslim ... I wonder why people are still questioning this.
Pretty stupid by Obama. He should know this looks bad especially with him proclaiming Muslim holidays.
I guess he is thumbing his nose deliberately.
Or he and his staff genuinely forgot because that’s how little they care.
Yep! Ain’t diversity grand?
“Or he and his staff genuinely forgot because thats how little they care.”
B I N G O ! ! !
