You’d like to think the shelf life wasn’t so short. I go back to the Oval Office and I start watching the cable news networks and it’s like we didn’t pray.President Barack Obama • Making a pitch for cooperation, rather than angry, frustrated discourse, at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning. That should last about 20 minutes. He kept away from more controversial issues in his speech, choosing to focus on the faith of noted leaders like Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr.
There are a lot of Democrats who agree with the need to deal with this. It’s a mathematical thing, it’s not an ideological thing. But he basically said we’re not going to change these programs, we’re not going to reform these programs to prevent this. He basically said we will not fix this debt crisis.Rep. Paul Ryan • Expressing his disappointment with President Obama’s inauguration speech, widely viewed as a staunch defense of liberal policy, during an appearance on The Laura Ingraham Show. Many Republicans have spoken out against the remarks, saying President Obama did not sufficiently reach across the aisle with his speech. source
Most Americans agree that a president’s children should not be used as pawns in a political fight. But to go so far as to make the safety of the president’s children the subject of an attack ad is repugnant and cowardly.White House Spokesperson Jay Carney - Commenting on a new political ad, released by the National Rifle Association, which calls President Obama an “elitist hypocrite” for opposing the stationing of armed guards in every school. We’re inclined to agree with Carney on this one. Say what you will about the man’s legislative agenda, but reasonable human beings should be able to agree that children aren’t acceptable targets for political attacks. source
