Things That Are Not News: Obama Attends Church

On vacation no less:

President Obama and the First Family attended church Sunday at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, where they spent the afternoon greeting troops on Christmas Day.

The Obamas attended services at St. Michael’s Church, the base’s chapel, at 11:05 a.m. local time. The family sat in the front row along with several unnamed friends who joined them on their annual vacation to the president’s home state, according to a pool report.

About 100 people were in attendance at the service and a full band and clapping parishioners sang “Joy to the World” as the press pool entered the sanctuary.

After the church service, Obama went golfing.

I realize that the White House press guys have to justify what their employers are paying to send them to Hawaii, but, really, who cares?

  1. Doug,

    Obviously, the fact that he is a secret Muslim makes this BIG news.

  2. Gustopher says:

    He had his fingers crossed the whole time, but you don’t see the Liberal Media reporting that, do you?

  3. Neil Hudelson says:

    Church? At a marine base? But I thought he was a secret Muslim atheist who believes in the radical black liberation Christianity? Are kenyan non-citizens even allowed on a marine base?
