At National Prayer Breakfast, Obama grounds his controversial policies in the Bible.

The president said he often falls to his knees in prayer, and emphasized the role of his religious values in determining where to lead the country.

"I’d be remiss if I stopped there; if my values were limited to personal moments of prayer or private conversations with pastors or friends. So instead, I must try — imperfectly, but I must try — to make sure those values motivate me as one leader of this great nation."

Obama maintained that his call for the wealthiest to give up their tax breaks, he's doing so out of economic necessity, but also in line with biblical teachings.

"And I think to myself, if I’m willing to give something up as somebody who’s been extraordinarily blessed, and give up some of the tax breaks that I enjoy, I actually think that’s going to make economic sense. But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’s teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,'

My comment: Obama could've said the devil made him do, but instead chose to say Christ made him do it...bottom line...not his fault.

90% of life is "showing up"

In other words, he wishes "charity" to be by "government decree".

"charity" through "government decree" is not "charity".

Its simply "government decree" as taxation.

There is so much waste, fraud, and vote getting through taxation that it cannot possibly be considered "charity".

Its simply more taxation and wasteful, out of control spending.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.

Great find Dusty, but the right wingers will all dance around that one.

Tea Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends

Of course they will.

Same as the loony left will dance around creating over $5 trillion in debt in 3 years.

What do you expect?

Not such as "great find" after all.
