Obama: Prayer Breakfast ‘Forgotten on the Same Day as the Prayer Breakfast’
cnsnews.com ^ | 1/7/13 | Melanie Hunter

“I do worry sometimes that as soon as we leave the prayer breakfast, everything we’ve been talking about the whole time at the prayer breakfast seems to be forgotten – on the same day as the prayer breakfast. You’d like to think that the shelf life wasn’t so short. I go back to the Oval Office, and I start watching the cable news networks, and it’s like we didn’t pray,” Obama said.

I fail to make the connection between the prayer breakfast and cable news....

Besides, I thought he said a few days ago he does not watch cable news...

Obama is right. I prayed at the breakfast...that he would go back to the White House and resign.

Yet...nothing happened.

It sounds as though the prayer breakfst wasn’t enough of a photo op. Perhaps he should skip them.

I read an interview of him somewhere in which he said he "prays" by having an all day conversation with...himself.

I kid you not. This was when he was mostly still unknown outside of Chicago.

Barry does his prayin on a rug facing East 5 times a day. The prayer breakfast doesn’t count.

He was making a somewhat valid point, as far as the people he knows. They go to the politically expedient function so as to be seen praying. Then, when you see them later that day on the news, they are contradicting what they prayed. Of course, he doesn’t seem to realize that he is the chief Pharisee.

Yes, on Cavuto in July, 2010, he said he does not watch cable.

Muslim prayers are quickly forgotten in any instance.

Once the pro forma prayers are out of the way, Islam largely permits the practicing Muslim to do just about anything he wants, as he has absolution for the rest of the day.

So that's what he does all day.

Is he saying that the only effective prayers are the ones that agree with him? “Nevertheless, not Thy will, but MINE be done.”

He likes to go to watch the cable networks as they worship him(BO). He probably gets his talking points against Republicans on MSNBC. A prayer breakfast is not about BO, but the cable networks are.

I walk out of church, and I wonder, where are the Christians in the parking lot?

Let the other guy go first...

I’m quite sure he was ready to forget everything Dr. Benjamin Carson talked about as soon as it was said. Obama only cracked a smile a time or two for the duration of the politically incorrect 26-minute speech by Dr. Carson.

Obama thought he was going to push amnesty and gun control to Jeff Sessions.

Carson’s speech was the highlight of the Prayer Breakfast. It was, perhaps, the highlight of my week. I’m surprised it didn’t get more covereage on FR (unless I missed a thread or two).

Obama was clearly pissed. He grimaced and misbehaved like a 6-year-old in church. The man has no class; no social skills. A Breitbart poster mentioned that Hussein probably was pissed because he was at a prayer breakfast and didn’t have his rug with him.

Re: Video - Obama is clearly uncomfortable. Dr. Carson is for personal responsibility, Obama victimhood.

I didn’t see much coverage of it either. I was so inspired by his message!

This is absolutely fabulous - the new definition of “priceless” will be the picture of Carson giving this speech and Obama being forced to sit there and try to look as though he doesn’t want to strangle the good Doctor - Carson tackles everything from political correctness to the blame game to playing the victim to destroying the rich (”God gave us the perfect tax plan in the Bible - it’s called ‘tithing’”) to the perfect medical coverage plan - and the zingers he gets in at the end are perfect (”Do you know why the eagle flies so well - because it has a left wing and a right wing - ‘nuff said”) - thanks for postig - this is for sure a must see.......

Did they pray about gay marriage at the prayer breakfast? Babies born alive and left to die on a stainless steel table? Babies with their brains sucked out of them in the womb?

I can understand the president thinking it was like they never even prayed.

Why did the president turn on cable news in the Oval Office? Did he want to see himself on tv? Was there some Breaking News?

Maybe not. Pray that he doesn't.

Obama only cracked a smile a time or two for the duration of the politically incorrect 26-minute speech by Dr. Carson.

Glad BHO is not a neurosurgeon. Hope he was listening very carefully when Dr. Carson was discussing spirituality. But:

"For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them, but the word preached did not profit them not being mixed with faith in them that heard it" (Heb. 4:1).

And regarding prayer:

"If I regard iniquity in my heart, The LORD will not hear me" (Ps. 66:18).

But in that case, the god of this world does hear, and does answer.

Thanks for posting the link to Dr. Carson's address -- muchas gracias.
