Sick… Obama Pushes Obamacare and Dodd-Frank at National Prayer Breakfast – Turns It Into Stump Speech

What a disgrace.
Barack Obama gave a campaign speech at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning.

Obama: I pushed Dodd-Frank and Obamacare because of Christ!

Can I Get an Amen?

National Journal reported:

President Obama wove politics through his speech at Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, echoing themes from his recent State of the Union address and calling for economic fairness.

“When I talk about our financial institutions playing by the same rules as folks on Main Street; when I talk about making sure insurance companies aren’t discriminated against those who are already sick; or making sure that unscrupulous lenders aren’t taking advantage of the most vulnerable among us, I do so because I genuinely believe it will make the economy stronger for everybody but I also do it because I know that far too many neighbors in our country have been hurt and treated unfairly over the last few years. And I believe in God’s command to love thy neighbor as thyself.” Obama said.

The president also shared a part of his own faith journey, as his Republican opponents have done on the campaign trail, recalling reflections spurred following his visit with the ailing Rev. Billy Graham.

“Growing up in a household that wasn’t particularly religious; going through my own period of doubt and confusion; finding Christ when I was not even looking for him so many years ago; possessing so many shortcomings that have been overcome by the simple grace of God. That simple fact [of praying for Graham] humbled me to my core,” he said.

Obama has attended each National Prayer Breakfast held during his presidency. This year, Occupy D.C. protesters held their own counter event called “The People’s Prayer Breakfast,” where attendance was free.

He has NO shame.

    Politics supersedes everything thing to include religion with this fool in the White House. This guy has been an embarrassment to the American people for three years. Isn’t that long enough?

  • StrangernFiction

    *yawn* Pure Evil

  • Adirondack Patriot

    As the Messiah, he is naturally entitled — nay O B L I G A T E D — to promote himself at a Prayer Breakfast.

    What a joke.

  • SeniorD

    The only thing different than a typical Sunday is that the Socialist is not an ordained minister (and neither are ‘Rev’s Jesse and Al). He’s just trying to beef up his ‘street creds’ with the urban culture,


    biggest POS….surprised he is at a prayer breakfast…is his hand on a koran…he could give 2 $hits about the prayer b-fast…only interested in promoting his mooslime ideals…

  • Highlander

    When he “found Christ”? I’ll believe that when monkeys fly …

  • BarbaraS

    Did y”all expect him to talk about religion? Seriously? That’s a joke. He has none. He only knows two subjects: himself and …himself. Well, one subject then. Camaigning is what he does best. That and tearing up the country and turning us against each other.

  • Adirondack Patriot

    At least he didn’t start singing Al Green again:

    “I-I-I, I’m so in love with me.
    Anything I want to be. . .
    Is all right with me-e-e-e.
    Let me
    Be the one you come crawling too oo oo oo!
    Cause I’ll probably become unglu-u-ued!
    Hey, baby let’s
    Let’s pray together
    Pray for me forever, and ever,
    When times are always bad,
    I’m so happy you’re sad.”

    I guess “finding Christ so many years ago” is referring to his close association with Black Liberation theologist, Jeremiah Wright, Jr. A theology that was so Marxist when in South America, that the Pope came out against it.

    And certainly, he must push his “redistribution” agenda. You know, when the vunerbles (as Sheila Jackson Lee calls them) buy houses they can’t afford and now you are going to have to pick up the tab, or when they make decisions that destroy their ability to be productive citizens, you will have to give them even more hand outs. “Hey, vunerbles, free lottery tickets and vouchers for tony restaurants are right around the corner. Just hold on, they’re coming. Didn’t you get all those free cell phones with lots of minutes? I got more coming for you, and the stupid tax payers are going to pick up the tab. And all you people now on food stamps? You be sure to vote for me or the evil Republicans will want you to be personally responsible. We can’t have that now, can we?”

    All Obama has done is reared millionaires and billionaires with govt loans and free money.

    One might wonder why.

    Answer: NO dictator can completely gut the country he is trying to take over. He MUST have friends in high places to keep things going for the small cadre of totalitarian controllers under his command. So he’s picked his “friends” so to speak. They fall for it because initially it puts them ahead of their competition. But they’re not looking down the road.

    Obama has made the poor and middle class poorer and the rich richer.

    #11is right.

    Obismal tears people apart and talk about himself.

    His “Christ” is not the Son of G-d as many here understand, but the Personage claiming to be that in Black Liberation Theology.

    In that venue , all who struggle against white oppression are “Christ” so yeah–essentially Obama believes he is God as a core principle.

    It doesn’t help that he is on a major head trip because he knows the “secret” — that he is the son of MalcolmX . I say again: big deal.

  • PamelaofthePoconos

    Not surprising. He did the same at his own TUCC church during 2008 primary. Probably not to the extent that he’s done here. He had a register to vote table outside, nearby. Maybe far enough away, but he made reference about becoming president in his speech which was inside the church. Jim probably wrote it up at the time! TUCC was charged with holding political function but FEC exonerated saying it was not their fault that Obama threw that in. Of course no one ever went after Obama on that.

  • Multitude

    This should help clarify Obama’s orientation toward religion for some. He’s no Muslim, nor a Christian. He’s a Leninist, seeing religion as a useful means to deliver propaganda and compel more to his totalitarian cause.

  • PamelaofthePoconos

    And the short reply here is “That’s why so many question his Christianity DUH”

  • Joe College

    I just now saw the Chevy Volt story (way below) and did not respond in time to be relevant.

    The ridiculous ad video for the Volt purports to show the Volt being built in a typical “mid-American” small town of Hamtramck. What is pictured in the ad is not Hamtramck. This is Hamtramck…,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=782384432d316272&biw=1006&bih=615

    …and this is Hamtranck…,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=782384432d316272&biw=1006&bih=615

    Hamtramck is a place where militant Islam is pushing out the indigenous population. Now, why would Obama have HIS car built there? Is the Hamtramck facility the logical resource for doing so? Or is Obama kicking some big money to his friends, and perhaps strengthening his Union goon army with fresh blood?
