Obama skips National Day of Prayer – but five minute video for Ramadan

This is another example of the young president’s inexperience. Really now, who’s running the show in the Executive Branch? This morning, the White House blog posted a five minute Obama video message sending greetings to Muslims around the world. That’s fine and all, but he basically ignored the all-faith-inclusive National Day of Prayer on May 7.

Christians, Catholics, Jews, Episcopalians and members of other faiths…. what say you? From The Washington Times on May 6. Hat tip to Jim at Gateway Pundit and HotAirPundit.

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.

And from the White House blog earlier today, with translations available in 13 languages.

    Is this part of President Obama's plan, to "divide and conquer" people in this country by favoring one religion over another? This WILL NOT promote good inter-faith relations between Muslims and non-Muslims, but simply create more tensions.

    This is a real clown that we have for a president! Everyone who voted for this Bozo should feel a sense of shame… I know I do, and I didn't even vote for the dork! Will someone please pass the Kool Aid?
