WASHINGTON—In a display of weakness unbecoming a head of state, President Barack Obama concluded remarks to his nation Tuesday by asking a pretend man who lives in the clouds to watch over and guide the United States.

To think this is a “joke”. What a surreal world we live in! This is basically a good report…

Surreal indeed.  When will we get a sane President that doesn’t worship a primitive cartoon character.

The Onion is right on. The pretend man is not doing a very good job what with all the rape and murder and stuff now is he? He could as least kill all the flies in Africa that are spreading disease and that would help those kids.
Remember bush had the pretend man as part of his administration, I wonder if he was in charge of killing all those Iraqi’s? Do ya think. I’m just sayin’

I think this is just part of his ploy. He is definitely a deist, but I don’t believe he actually practices religion. You could say whatever you want about his insane pastor, but I doubt he practices any faith; he pretty much had a secular childhood.
