President Obama has just returned from a Marthas Vineyard vacation, cut short from the passing and funeral of Senator Ted Kennedy. Tonight, at 8:00 p.m. ET, President Obama will host a dinner in honor of Ramadan at the White House and you can watch it live in the player below.

meanwhile, he refused to participate in the national day of prayer...
But he blows off the national day of prayer and still doesn’t attend a Christian church. Any doubt that this guy is a Moooslim? (Next - a minaret at the White House?)
President Barack Obama gets ready to chip to the 18th green as he plays golf at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va. , Monday, Aug. 31, 2009.
Elections have consequences. I think a big a hint about where this man’s allegiances were was his name. The voters of this country are freaking clueless. None of this should come as a surprise.
I wonder if he will mention his Muslim upbringing, and then John McCain will rush the stage and say that it’s not fair to bring it up.
(An old joke, but a good one.)
“So is he going to bring in the Rosh Hashana in three weeks, I think not.”
Right, and he’ll broadcast it too.
: o /
Why should I watch this farce?
Remind me, how did he commemorate Good Friday?
Doesn’t celebrate Easter, the foundation of the Christian religion,
but celebrates Ramadan...
Shuuuuuurrrr you’re a Christian, Barry.
It’s a PR stunt, IMHO.
How many WH dinners are broadcast LIVE???
this POS is vacationing more than he is in office and still he screws things up
He was on vacation last week. he leaves for vacation Wed and he played gold yesterday?
MSM is hypocritical to not point this out.
Don’t all presidents do this, though?
The only good side to this would be if Michelle starts wearing a burqua - without the boob belt.
People were sick of seeing him on TV constantly. The less I see of him the better.
He did celebrate a seder.
I wonder if Axelrod and Rahmbo will join him for ramadamadingdong.
Its a PR stunt, IMHO.
This whole administration is nothing BUT a PR stunt. Nothing genuine about them. Nothing.
Really? News to me that this ever went on. Why should any president celebrate any religious event with which they are not personally affiliated? People are touchy about religion; best to celebrate your own, and not comment on others.
Oh no! Don’t be scared by that muslim sounding name! He’s not a muslim at all! Pay no attention to his upbringing! After all, who as a kid didn’t worship allah every now and then?
The American people, in their stupidity to elect this unqualified inexperienced marxist-moslem empty suit, have the government they deserve.
To see if he gets down on a rug.
His vacation was not cut short!!!
It was only planned for a week and a week it was....Sunday to Sunday..
But tomorrow he (they) go to Camp David for 5 days...life is one long vacation for them and their many friends who travel with them...
JUST WONDERING...HOW MANY TIMES HAVE THEY ATTENDED CHURCH SERVICES ON A SUNDAY SINCE HE MOVED TO THE WHITE HOUSE????
Yes, they do...in fact, Bush 43 did the same thing in 2001...magritte
Bush 43 held “iftar” events quite frequently during his 8 years in the White House
And Muslim military members go to do, gasp!, prayers at the White House during Ramandan 2006
This is bogus.
Bush hosted many Ramandan dinners. Including right after 9/11
Hmmmmm' French Fried Taters...the facial expression in uncanny.
I have never eaten any ramadan is it any good?
But what about the seperation of church and state the neo-commies are always shouting about?
As other FReepers have pointed out here... but Obama blows off the national day of prayer and still doesnt attend a Christian church...
Oh, and there's this: 50,000 Muslims expected for Islamic prayer on Capitol Hill (Sept 25th, 2009)
What is happening to our country??
Thanks for the ping!
Maybe someone in the White House kitchen will mess up and serve ham.
President Bush hosted a White House Ramadan dinner every year he was in office starting in 2001.
And he didn’t broadcast it like this guy. AND Bush attended christian prayer events (including church) often and regularly.
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.
“So I assume that was reaching out, and the twin towers dropped when, a week later?”
In 2001 Ramadan was in November.
