There’s an election on the horizon so Barack Obama decided to attend the prayer breakfast this morning.
CNN reported on his comments:
“My Christian faith has been sustaining for me over the last couple of years and even more so when Michelle and I hear our faith questioned from time to time,” the president said Thursday, referring to his wife. “We are reminded that ultimately what matters is not what other people say about us but that we are true to our conscience and true to our God.”
He decided against reciting one of his pastor’s favorite prayers.
It was probably a smart move.
