The Muslim Rumor That Just Won't Die
Ever since he began running for president in 2007, Barack Obama has been dogged by rumors that he's secretly a Muslim. Whether it's his exotic name and background, the color of his skin, or (most likely) some combination of the two, the Muslim lie just doesn't seem to go away.
Each time it has begun to fade from public discussion, the Muslim rumor has cropped up again, like it did last year when real estate tycoon Donald Trump, who was publicly weighing a presidential bid at the time, insisted he had evidence showing Obama wasn't born in the United States (and that his birth certificate might show that he's Muslim). >>>
Just 34% of Americans correctly say U.S. President Barack Obama is a Christian, while 44% say they don't know Obama's religion and 11% say he is a Muslim.
I see that Matt conveniently left out when when George Stephanopoulos stopped being an interviewer and assumed the role of media coach when he corrected the 0bamboozler ... "My deep Muslim, er Christian, faith."
Or how about his 2008 statement to a New York Times reporter that the Muslim "Call to Prayer" is the "loveliest sound on Earth at sunset" and his ability to then chant that "Call" in a perfect Arabic accent. Or his listing as a "Muslim" on Indonesian school records (the only school records anyone has seen) and of course, the statement on those same records that he is "Indonesian". All the while being educated in a Madrassah and rooming with Pakistanis.
Then there is the attack on religion and the Catholic Church. His extraordinary statements and outreach actions favoring Muslims, unwillingness to deal forcefully with domestic terrorism by Muslims, and by his disdainful and harsh treatment of Israel.
Maybe it's because he used to tell everybody he was Muslim, just like he used to tell everybody he was born in Kenya Matt ...
