Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Divine Intervention

The topic this morning all over the Internet seems to be about the President invoking divine intervention. I have to say that I find the topic being drudged up by the left a bit maddening and really petty!

I do NOT believe in Religion because it is man made. I do believe in God or a higher power. I also give others the right NOT to believe in God. I also believe in separation of Church and State.

He is being torn apart by the media and the left because he asked based on his beliefs for guidance and strength? For the President to act like we are not in dire need of help would have been deceitful. I know that sometimes the Democrats would rather not hear how bad things are and keep their heads hidden in the sand but that is not going to solve anything. The right love to preach fear and invoke that into the Country and the Left doesn’t want to deal with fear. There has to be a balance and we are fortunate to have a man in office that is calm and will ride out the storm with a steady hand if he has the support of those who voted for him.

I say to the left, STOP acting like spoiled children who have to have everything and have it NOW! If the left does not get behind our President then we will end up with someone like the dim wit from Alaska and the old man from AZ who doesn’t have a clue living in the WH come 2012. If that happens then the left better just suck it up and shut up because you helped them get there with your actions and non-actions.

As for the Prayer, I would rather have a man in the WH who believes in something then a man who believes in nothing! ~Mem

President Obama's stance on prayer and national prayer day for those on the left or right who question his faith and how he believes or how he betrayed himself during the election. This President has never denied his faith or beliefs nor did he run on a progressive or liberal stance. He ran down the middle and this should not be stated otherwise or it is a false statement in my opinion. ~Mem


Office of the Press Secretary
For Immediate Release May 7, 2009

Throughout our Nation's history, Americans have come together in moments of great challenge and uncertainty to humble themselves in prayer. In 1775, as the Continental Congress began the task of forging a new Nation, colonists were asked to observe a day of quiet humiliation and prayer. Almost a century later, as the flames of the Civil War burned from north to south, President Lincoln and the Congress once again asked the American people to pray as the fate of their Nation hung in the balance.

It is in that spirit of unity and reflection that we once again designate the first Thursday in May as the National Day of Prayer. Let us remember those who came before us, and let us each give thanks for the courage and compassion shown by so many in this country and around the world.

On this day of unity and prayer, let us also honor the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. We celebrate their commitment to uphold our highest ideals, and we recognize that it is because of them that we continue to live in a Nation where people of all faiths can worship or not worship according to the dictates of their conscience.

Let us also use this day to come together in a moment of peace and goodwill. Our world grows smaller by the day, and our varied beliefs can bring us together to feed the hungry and comfort the afflicted; to make peace where there is strife; and to lift up those who have fallen on hard times. As we observe this day of prayer, we remember the one law that binds all great religions together: the Golden Rule, and its call to love one another; to understand one another; and to treat with dignity and respect those with whom we share a brief moment on this Earth.

The Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a "National Day of Prayer."

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 7, 2009, as a National Day of Prayer. I call upon Americans to pray in thanksgiving for our freedoms and blessings and to ask for God's continued guidance, grace, and protection for this land that we love.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.
