Barack Obama Mixes Religion and Politics, ala George Bush

As expected, the media is jumping on one of the great double standards in politics: religion. President Barack Obama is doing what many Democrats despised and harangued George Bush for promoting -- the Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships
The Democrat's inaugural pomp was steeped in prayer, and one of his first proclamations included a shout out to "an awesome God." Last week, Obama used the platform of the National Prayer Breakfast to unveil a new-look White House Office on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships that features a team of policy advisers from both religious and secular social service circles. Most are ideological allies, but not all.
