Calling Bullshit on Obama

From the AP:

Sen. Barack Obama chastised fellow Democrats on Wednesday for failing to "acknowledge the power of faith in the lives of the American people," and said the party must compete for the support of evangelicals and other churchgoing Americans.

"Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation. Context matters," the Illinois Democrat said in remarks to a conference of Call to Renewal, a faith-based movement to overcome poverty.
"It is doubtful that children reciting the Pledge of Allegiance feel oppressed or brainwashed as a consequence of muttering the phrase 'under God,'" he said. "Having voluntary student prayer groups using school property to meet should not be a threat, any more than its use by the High School Republicans should threaten Democrats."

Ummm - unless this is the AP getting a little loose with their reporting, I wonder?

Who is Obama refering to here? Can he name the Democrats he is chastising? I don't know who they are. Last I checked it was the federal court that said that "under God" was un-Constitutional. Last I knew school prayer was an issue decided by the Supreme Court.

Barack this is BULLSHIT. Why are you Liebermaning your party?
