Obama plans rare appearance Sunday at a church in the District

By Hamil R. Harris
President Obama will deliver remarks about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday morning when he appears at a church in the District for the second time since he was inaugurated and the third since his election.

As president-elect, Obama and his family attended services once at Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington institution that is one of the oldest historically black churches in the District. They attended Easter services at the historic St. John's Episcopal Church near the White House.

The White House did not disclose the name of the church Obama will attend Sunday.

Obama has a strange way of "fixing the mess" when all he has done is take the Bush doctrine and put it on steroids.

He is now trying to shred the bill of rights by demanding that we buy his health care or go to jail.

That's "Chains you can beleive in".

Obama plans rare appearance Sunday at a church in the District???

and he will "deliver remarks about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sunday morning when he appears at a church"

Whay happened to the liberals whining about the required separation of Church and State? Seems that democrats are exempted from their own words...when it is convenient.

Not sure what planet you live on ohioan but the mess that the republicans created is being fixed. We finally have a president who is delivering solutions for the "average American", holding Wall Street accountable, making sure credit card companies are held accountable and ensuring that all Americans have access to healthcare. The nation is better off today than it was in October of 2008. Thanks to the Democrats and President Obama.

Democrats have lost their Integrity. They've underestimated the sophistication of their supporters. They've demonized many of their own supporters who are business owners and wealthy.
They've taken their supporters for granted.
Lying and bribing just doesn't cut it....
