The fact that conservative bloggers got all fired up about this indicates how badly things are going for the GOP these days.
Here’s Tumblr’s very own anonymous voice of conservative reason on the deadly serious breach committed by President Obama:
Shame, shame on the President. Tweeting during a church service! What kind of example is he setting for Sasha and Malia?
The one this morning came from St. John’s, the church across Lafayette Park from the White House, where the first family went this morning on the chilly and overcast day of the public inauguration ceremonies:
“I’m honored and grateful that we have a chance to finish what we started. Our work begins today. Let’s go. -bo”
The president and his family arrived at St. John’s at 8:35 am EST.
The service ended at 9:39.
BO tweeted at 9:25.
The tweets that are supposedly from Obama (as opposed to a member of his team) are all signed “-bo.” So, he can’t blame this one on his staffers.
Incidentally, if you type “church tweet” into Google, you’ll find lots and lots of religious people making arguments in favor of tweeting during church or discussing the value of social media to church attendance, all of which was there prior to today’s much-discussed church tweet.
As my friends at the Short Form Blog point out, “You know people schedule tweets all the time, right?”
But, personally, I like the image of the president tweeting away from the pews. The man made some time in his busy day to go to church, after all. I wonder how many of the conservative scolds did the same.
