The Obama family attended church in Hawaii yesterday at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. A report a few days ago said the President took a book about Ronald Reagan with him to the Aloha State. Perhaps going to church is a bit of Reaganesque to boost his image? Going to church might do it. It should be noted that Mr. and Mrs. Obama also extended their “warmest thoughts” to those celebrating Kwanzaa and it’s seven principles. See a video below.
“Michelle and I extend our warmest thoughts and wishes to all those who are celebrating Kwanzaa this holiday season,” the statement said. “Today is the first of a joyful seven-day celebration of African American culture and heritage. The seven principles of Kwanzaa — unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith — are some of the very values that make us Americans.
“As families across America and around the world light the Kinara today in the spirit of umoja or unity, our family sends our well wishes and blessings for a happy and healthy new year.”
Hear Obama’s Christmas address to Americans in the video and see a bit of the beautiful White House in all it’s Christmas splendor. The President speaks of the Christ Child and about “peace,” meaning we must ‘keep it’ by accommodating the sensitivities of Muslims. Michelle wishes us “an even happier New Year.” Gosh only knows how we are praying for just that.
