Washington Post columnist Colbert King writes about FOX NEWS attacked President Obama for not recognizing Easter Day with an official proclamation —even thought the prior day he had mentioned it in his radio address. During Holy Week, the President had held an Easter prayer breakfast with clergy. On Sunday, he attended with his family Easter services at Shiloh Baptist church.
Instead Fox tried to paint him as a Muslim—which in their word is an evil thing, despite the Bill of Rights guaranteeing freedom of religion.
Fox News wants to unseat Obama in 2012. That’s their right, but do it on facts. Challenge his positions and actions—not his birth or faith.
BTW: No president in the past 20 years has issued an Easter proclamation. For the history-challenged, this means George W. Bush didn’t do it either.
