I was under the impression that Presidents have been hosting prayer breakfasts forever....:huh: He claims that it was his idea...and this is the only the second time the white house have had an annual Easter Prayer Breakfast

He speaks about Passion tide and the feast of The Ressurection :blink:

I didnt think he did...well he flat out appears to lie in the video. I was under the impression that Presidents Routinely held Prayer Breakfasts...and I find it increadibly hard to believe that over three hundred and thirty years, and forty four Presidents...that the only two Prayer Breakfasts to coincide with Holy Week, were courtesy of Obama, this year, and last year...I think thats a bit of a stretch even before viewing the facts :laugh:

Not particularly at this specific time, but the White House has been observing National Prayer Breakfasts since the 50's.

Having one now at Easter-time is merely a self-congratulatory exercise, IMO. BO abolished National Prayer Day after he was elected. Here is a report from the liberal LA TIMES. (http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2009/05/obama-cancels-national-prayer-day-service.html)

But hey, he's now in full re-election mode so, anything goes! He will take any stand! Well, except cutting spending or toning down the partisan rhetoric.

wait...wasn't someone just talking about that recently?!?

I'm sure he can find a way to share credit with The Goracle.
