Barack Obama's 'Ostentatious Display of Faith'

Charles Krauthammer has been dead on regarding Barack Obama. Here is his latest opinion , delivered on Fox News, regarding Barack Obama's sudden and very public talk about his faith.
A couple of key points from Mr. Krauthammer. He calls Obama's display of faith "ostentatious" and says there is a connection between his "late and recent ostentatious display shows of religiosity" and polls showing many Americans skeptical about his being a Christian. "Clearly he is acting like a politician". He also takes Obama to task for his cynicism and hypocrisy: "whenever he does something for obvious political reasons he pretends that he is not" and always claims the opposition are the ones reacting to elections or partisan politics. He always claims he is rising above such considerations. In other words, he is genuine and other politicians are phonies.

One another panelist noticed he often appeared in churches during the campaign; that, as President, he has not gone to church much and spent a lot of time golfing on Sundays. She said Democratic strategists said they want to see the President do this more - and that White House sources said he intends to do this as the campaign for 2012 ramps up. He wants to defuse the image of his being "distant".

The public and political baptism is being rolled out for all of us to witness.

Gee..wasn't George Bush often reviled as being too religious, too Christian?

Well worth listening for a few minutes.
