GLENN: Barack Obama’s having his prayer breakfast, there he is, standing so humbly again. See, his stance just screams arrogance. But he’s having a prayer breakfast. If I’m not mistaken, Pat, he didn’t have one last year, did he?

PAT: Skipped it I believe, if I remember right, yeah.

GLENN: Anyway, he’s got one because he’s so involved in his church and

PAT: Wait. No, he’s not involved in a church.

GLENN: Huh?

PAT: No, not a church. Not a church.

GLENN: He is not going to church?

PAT: He’s been to church according to ABC three times.

GLENN: Three times?

PAT: In a year.

GLENN: Okay. Well

PAT: In a year. That didn’t include Christmas.

GLENN: But he’s I’m sure he’s looking for

PAT: But I’m sure he’s looking really hard.

GLENN: Does he have a spiritual adviser at least?

PAT: He does, he does.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: He does have a spiritual adviser.

GLENN: Do we know anything about his spiritual adviser?

PAT: We know a couple of things.

GLENN: We know, really, a little bit more about his spiritual adviser? Huh, I can’t wait for that episode to air. Anyway, here he is at the prayer breakfast today. Go ahead. Let’s listen in.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Help our neighbors from poverty. We may disagree about gay marriage but surely we can agree that it is unconscionable to target gays and lesbians for who they are, whether it’s here in the United States or as Hillary mentioned, more extremely in odious laws that are being proposed most recently in Uganda.

GLENN: How about Iran?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Surely we can agree to find common ground when possible, parting ways when necessary. But in doing so let us be guided by our faith.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And by prayer.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: For while prayer can buck us up when we are down, keep us calm in a storm, while prayer can stiffen our spines to surmount an obstacle, and I assure you I’m praying a lot these days, prayer can also do something else.

GLENN: What can it do? Create and save jobs?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It can touch our hearts with humility. It can fill us with the spirit of brotherhood.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh!

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It can remind us that each of us are children of an awesome and loving god.

GLENN: Oh, yes.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Through faith but not through faith alone.

GLENN: Right.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We can unite people to serve the common good.

GLENN: Oh, that’s good.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And that’s why my office of faith based and neighborhood partnerships has been working so hard since I announced it here last year.

GLENN: Faith based and neighborhood partnerships.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And build effective partnerships and arrange uses, from promoting fatherhood here at home to spearheading interfaith cooperation as well.

GLENN: I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore. I can’t take it anymore. You know this guy, if I’m not mistaken, he didn’t believe in God at all, did he? He was not a religious guy?

PAT: Not a religious guy.

GLENN: And then he found his faith, if I remember, he was speaking to some, you know, prayer group last year or last summer and he was saying, you know, but I understood, I came to Jesus and found Jesus when I found my church in Chicago, which was Reverend Jeremiah Wright. And that taught me how to implement my faith.

Okay. So he doesn’t believe in this stuff until he found the Marxist theology of Reverend Jeremiah Wright. I mean, this guy, I mean, if anyone would do their homework in the media, if anyone was interested in actually telling the truth in the media, doing their job in the media, this guy’s not that hard to figure out. He’s not that hard to figure out. He was raised as a Marxist, he had Marxist friends, Marxist mentors, sought out the Marxists in

PAT: College.

GLENN: In college. I mean, what does it tell you that the guy went from look, he’s trying to fit in. But when he’s 18 years old, as he’s getting ready to go into Marxist, you know, seek out the Marxist professors, he changes his name from Barry, which makes you fit in, to Barack. Now, what does that tell you? Just psychologically what does that tell you? What does it, what does it take to change your name? You know, immigrants used to change their name to fit in. They used to want to be more like the culture. He did the exact opposite. You know his wife, when he was on the campaign trail, his wife said, you know, well, they are just making fun of him because he has a funny name. No, no, no. He chose the funny name. He went on and said, you know, they’re just trying to scare you because I have a funny name. Again, you chose the name that you now think that people can use to scare other people with. Why would, why would anyone do that? Why would anyone do that? It doesn’t, it doesn’t make any sense to me. If you’re mainstream. If you’re just, you know, I’m just like everybody else, I’m just the every man, it doesn’t make any sense. And then, of course, you finally come to Jesus when you meet the Marxist preacher. Ah, okay.
