    President Obama and his family attended services this morning at St. John’s Church, which is on the other side of Lafayette Square from the White House.

    St. John’s, often visited by presidents, is Episcopalian.

    The visit comes a month after a Pew Research Center poll said that nearly one in five Americans erroneously believe Obama is a Muslim…

    We have always thought that all the talk about Obama being a Muslim was utter nonsense. Everyone knows that Muslims were staunchly anti-Communist, because Communists tend to be staunchly atheist.

    The first family members all went up for communion, led by the president.

    Had they gone to ‘confession’ earlier?

    This is Obama’s third visit to St. John’s Church. He also attended services there on Jan. 20, 2009, just a few hours before his inauguration.

    Here are some more details from the pool reporter, Louise Radnofsky of The Wall Street Journal:

    I doubt the Dems would want to go there.
    Not the Dems, the evangelicals. Before he can run against Obama, he has to get the nomination. Evangelicals, the Christian Right, wouldn't vote for a Democrat if he were running against Voldemort.

    They might not vote for Obama ... and they might not vote at all if the choice is between Obama and a member of a cult.

    So what is it, 10, 20, 30 new jobs each month for 21 straight months?

Except ... that worker productivity -- the most important long-term indicator of the core health and competitiveness of an economy -- has risen at a really impressive 2.6 annual rate during the Bush years vs. 2.0 percent for Clinton and 1.6 percent for Reagan. (That factoid from the Wall Street Journal.) This is important stuff. It's one big reason why the World Economic Forum says the U.S. has the most competitive economy in the world. The economic rebound after the pro-growth 2003 tax cuts was no mirage.

    I guess the only results you care about are the ones you make up.

    Help me out here, Con ... what am I missing? You claim we had 52 consecutive months of job growth but when I look at the numbers you posted, the most I see is 8 consecutive months.

    Addition and subtraction are a little bit above his pay grade.

    Why do you post LNS12000000 numbers for Obama but post CES0500000001 Numbers for Bush? In my world that's called comparing apples to oranges.
