White House Defends Obama’s Tone Deaf Comparison of ISIS and the Crusades

February 7, 2015

The fact that they feel the need to comment on this proves that they know Obama really stepped in it.

From The Hill…

White House defends Prayer Breakfast remarks about the Crusades

The White House on Friday defended President Obama’s remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast after he was widely lambasted by conservatives for bringing up acts done in Christianity’s name amid a discussion of modern-day terrorist threats.

Americans should hold themselves “up to our own values and our own standards,” deputy press secretary Eric Schultz said aboard the president’s flight to Indianapolis, where Obama is speaking at a community college, according to the pool report.

Obama believes that “when we fall short of that, we need to be honest with ourselves,” Schultz said, noting Obama’s “belief in American exceptionalism.”

“The president believes that America is the greatest country on earth, not only because of our military or economic prowess or because we serve in a unique leadership role amongst the international community,” he added.

Raise your hand if you think Obama believes in American exceptionalism. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
