President Obama is so effective a leader he can devote every minute of every day to the economy and find extra time to hold a meeting with a selection of the country’s African-American faith leaders to discuss “how civil rights and equality are closely tied to voting rights and closing the gap on education, unemployment, and access to health care.”
Also among those faith leaders was MSNBC host Al Sharpton, who’s no stranger to the White House: he, other MSNBC hosts and selected “progressive journalists” were summoned soon after the 2012 election to help the president get his message back on track.
The White House press office reports that the faith leaders shared with the president their plans to inform their congregations about Obamacare’s health care marketplaces, and they concluded their meeting with a prayer.
Tomorrow? Back to getting that stubborn economy back on track, as promised.
