President & First Lady Attend National Prayer Breakfast

President Obama criticized Washington's cut-throat political culture at today's National Prayer Breakfast -- including apparent blasts at critics who claim he is a Muslim who was not born in the United States.

"Surely you can question my policies without questioning my faith -- or, for that matter, my citizenship," said Obama, a Christian born in Hawaii.

Renewing his call for more civility in politics, Obama decried Washington, D.C., as a "Tower of Babel" -- which he pronounced "babble" -- in which "we lose the sound of God's voice."

The vast majority of lawmakers are good people trying to do the right thing, Obama said, and have on occasion worked for the good of the nation and the world.
