Clinging To His Religion: Obama Invokes Jesus More Than Theocrat Bush Did.

I presume they aren't counting every time He says "I" either.

Jesus, like patriotism, is cool again. Thanks Obama.

More than four months into the Obama presidency, a picture is emerging of a chief executive who is comfortable with public displays of his religion — although he has also paid tribute to other faiths and those he called “nonbelievers” during his inaugural address.

Obama’s invocation of the Christian Messiah is more overt than Americans heard in the public rhetoric of Bush in his time in the White House — even though Bush’s victories were powered in part by evangelical voters.

...Obama’s public embrace of his Christianity so far has not included choosing a church in the capital, and he has attended Sunday services only once since his election, on Easter Sunday. The White House said at the time the family was still looking for a spiritual home in Washington.

Funny how the rules seem to change so suddenly. It might have something to do with the fact that most liberals probably don't think he really means it.

The story goes on to talk about how it was a political danger for Bush to talk about his faith but for Obama it's an opportunity!

Gee, I wonder why it might have been dangerous for Bush to be seen as too religious?

Might it have been because he would get smeared and ridiculed by his supposed betters on the left? Naturally, it never occurred to them that perhaps Bush was simply a main of faith who, despite the left's nightmares to the contrary, never wanted to impose his faith on others or seem to be disrespectful to fellow citizens who didn't share his faith. Nah, couldn't have any of those things.

Being a liberal or a member of the MSM (BIRM) means never having to say you're sorry.
