In an interview to air later tonight President Obama tells Brian Williams that he did not watch any of the coverage of Glenn Beck‘s Restoring Honor rally. Which I find totally believable, though I do suspect at least a few in his inner circle were probably glued to it.
This is certainly not to say he is unaware of Beck (though we already knew that), conceding that: “Glenn Beck can stir up some of the people.”
As for the Pew poll that revealed Americans are increasingly confused about Obama’s religion he said: “I can’t spend all my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead. I don’t think the American people want me to spend all my time on it.” Indeed.
