Obama Delivers Intensely-Religious Prayer Breakfast Speech: ‘As Christians We Place Our Faith in the Nail-Scarred Hands of Jesus Christ’
Feb. 7, 2013 9:56am Billy Hallowell
This morning, President Barack Obama spoke at the annual National Prayer Breakfast address, during which he highlighted his Christian faith, praised Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln and encouraged the nation, despite intense ideological differences, to find common ground. Painting a stark difference when compared to past speeches in which he pointed to a more complex and less flattering picture of Christian scripture, Obama heralded the Bible as a sustaining document with the power to teach important lessons.
At the beginning of his address, he said that the annual National Prayer Breakfast is an opportunity for the nation to come together “not as Democrats or Republicans, but as brothers and sisters and children of God.” This theme of togetherness was one that followed throughout the president’s speech, as he told those in attendance that the United States is a country that is continuously humbled by its history and “ever-attentive to our imperfections.”

One of my favorite juvenile court referees (kind of like magistrates) requires all the children of the appropriate age who come before her (delinquent and foster care alike) to watch "Gifted Hands" (the movie about Ben Carson's life) and write her a paper about what they learned from it.
The school in the Wayne County Juvenile Detention Facility is named for Dr. Carson, also.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

I absolutely loved the speach by Dr. Carson ...
And to see Obama's reaction to it while he was speaking, was and added bonus!!!
Can't stay, Mr. ABC is waiting for me to get off this machine.
Just wanted to add 2 things:
#1 ... Dr. Carson is going to be on Hannity tonight.
#2 ... Here is a touching short video about the man ...
and who he is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxADBiygjtU
Now tell me the difference between him, his love for children, and Obama, who thinks nothing of killing them in the womb and even after out of it, by letting them die if the abortion failed!

Just wanted to encourage anyone who has not seen the video, to tune in.
At 18 minutes he gets into the national debt; then a marvelous allowance parable; then the taxation system, where he takes on the tax system and rips into those who feel taxing a rich man does not 'hurt' him;...Obama is not happy.
At 21 minutes he takes on health care..Obama is not happy.
24 minutes, the bald eagle analogy..
26 minutes the story of Francis Scott Key and Ft McHenry..
It's well worth your time.
