    Obama refers to 'my Muslim faith" on TV this morning

    A righty already posted the you tube link in the local newspaper comments. I'm certain it will be very viral very soon.

    I did not see the interview; can some one please give me context so I can refute the claim that "Hussein bin Obama is finally admitting it"?

    I would have to see the whole clip, not just a few seconds with a partial sentence, before I made a judgment on that one. As someone said on these boards just the other day:

    Someone listed links to the full interview, with the statement that it was taken out of context (which does not surprise me). If I have time I'll watch it later, but here are the links that were posted:

    Okay. I had time to see it, since the video link gives you the specific spot. They had been talking about the rumors of Obama being muslim, and he uses the word and then corrects it to "Christian". It's a non-story, but he manages to work in the "victim" tone he's been using.
    BO: What I was suggesting... you're absolutely right that McCain has not talked about "my Muslim faith", and you're absolutely right that...
    GS: (interrupting) Your Christian faith.
    BO: My Christian faith. (smirking) Well, what I'm saying is that he hasn't suggested that I'm a Muslim.

    If Perilloux had bothered to check this instead of leaving it to me, he could have saved himself the posting trouble and saved me five minutes of my life.

    This is stupid.

    First of all, we're well aware he isn't a Muslim; that much has been made clear by his liberation theology-influenced pastor and his strange former church.

    Secondly, this is a non-story; he didn't say he was a Muslim, he was trying to refute that accusation. That much is absolutely clear.

    Peri's a she. I didn't see her leave anything to you.

    And everyone knows Barry's a closet Muslim. I've been telling every undecided voter I meet. You wouldn't believe my conversion rate.

    First, I am a she, not a he. And I did bother to check, but I found their (the DUmmies) reaction to it quite humorous and of course predictable. More times than not my posts in this forum are for entertainment. My post was only in that vein, I'm only sorry all the responders didn't get it. Guess I should have used one of these---> :D

    Oh well.

    I watched it when it happened but the funny part was DU's response.

    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.
