POTUS marks Ash Wednesday

The White House this morning released the following statement to mark the beginning of Lent:

Michelle and I join with millions of Christians here and across the world to mark Ash Wednesday.   As we observe the season of Lent, we receive with thanksgiving this opportunity for grace and repentance, recommit ourselves to our faith, and remember our obligations to one another.

    Is Barry clinging to his religion? To all the Liberals that put people down for being Christian, bible thumping, and or believing in God and the academics that rank God equal to in Santa Claus the Easter Bunny or Greek mythology. How do you feel about the fact that your president also believes in God? If he was a Republican president would you be so tolerant or would you call him stupid?

    What in the world are you talking about now? Is the PRESIDENT clinging to his religion? I hope he is! That's probably the only thing that's allowed him to tolerate CALMLY, all of the spears of hate and ill-repuke that have been waged against him these past 2 years! If he was a Republican President, why WOULD liberals call him stupid? Afterall, Republicans are the main ones who claim to be CHRISTIANS, anyway! The KLAN even claims CHRISTIANITY! What's the BIG problem with OBAMA showing respect to his faith??
