The White House Celebrates Ramadan
By PETER BAKER SEPTEMBER 1, 2009 6:25 PMSeptember 1, 2009 6:25 pm
President Obama will hold his first White House dinner celebrating the Muslim holiday of Ramadan on Tuesday night as part of his effort to rebuild American relations with the Islamic world after years of strain.
The dinner follows in the tradition of former President George W. Bush, who held eight Ramadan dinners in office to stress that America’s war with violent extremists was not a war with Islam. Despite that outreach, Mr. Bush became a polarizing figure to many Muslims, in large part because of the Iraq war and his staunch support for Israel.
Mr. Obama, while adopting a similar message of respect for the religion of Islam, has none of the baggage of his predecessor and some distinctive advantages that aides hope give him credibility. While the president is a Christian, he comes from a family that includes Muslims, and he spent several years as a child growing up in a Muslim country, Indonesia. His opposition to the Iraq war and his tougher stance on Israel also contrast with Mr. Bush’s policies.
Among those invited to the White House on Tuesday night are the ambassadors from most major Muslim countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Iraq and Turkey, as well as envoys from nations with significant Muslim populations like Israel, Germany, India, Britain and France. Also on the invitation list is the chief of mission of the Palestinian Liberation Organization.
Besides the president, the administration will be represented by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of health and human services. Senator Richard G. Lugar, Republican of Indiana, and Representatives Andre Carson, a Muslim from Indiana, John Conyers of Michigan, Keith Ellison, a Muslim from Minnesota and Rush Holt of New Jersey, all Democrats, are expected as well.
Among the community members invited are Lt. Cmdr. Abuhena Saifulislam, a Navy officer who has given the prayer at Mr. Bush’s Ramadan dinner, and Jameel Jaffer, a lawyer with the American Civil Liberties Union who has been giving the White House fits with a lawsuit that has forced it to release secret documents on C.I.A. interrogations and detention.
So?

ROTFLMAO!!!!

HILLARY: LET’S GET BACK TO BELIEVING AMERICA IS GREAT
In an otherwise cuddly interview on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”2016 Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton still found a way to stick the knife into her 2008 rival and former boss, President Obama. The former secretary of state, who has been distancing herself from Obama, took an unmistakable jab at the current president in answer to a question about diminishing American clout in the world:“We have not been telling our story very well. We do have a great story.” Clinton said,“We are not perfect by any means, but we have a great story about human freedom, human rights, human opportunity, and let’s get back to telling it

Pope Francis: Migrant Children Must Be ‘Welcomed And Protected’

Since ascending to the papacy last year, Pope Francis has made immigrant populations and their struggles a central focus of his ministry. His first official trip outside the Vatican was to Lampedusa, an island in the southern Mediterranean that harbors African migrants seeking passage to Europe. There he met with immigrants and later tweeted,“We pray for a heart which will embrace immigrants. God will judge us upon how we have treated the most needy.” On the World Day of Migrants and Refugees in September 2013, he condemned human trafficking, saying “Migrants and refugees are not pawns on the chessboard of humanity. They are children, women and men who leave or who are forced to leave their homes for various reasons, who share a legitimate desire for knowing and having, but above all for being more.” He also surprised 2,000 immigrant residents at the Dono di Maria shelter near the Vatican with Christmas gifts last year, offering them care packages and prepaid phone cards so they could contact their families over the holidays.

Racial slurs are so natural to Eed that he doesn't even realize they are slurs.
Eed knows that calling a black man "boy" is a racial slur & now he will pretend he meant something else.
Pathetic, low life ignorant racist POS Eed.
Calling Obama the boy president is not racial, except to a race baiting moron like you.

Obama is in over his head and acts like a juvenile.

You are an idiot Dumbo Dave.

You can't understand what you read, you make no sense in anything you say whatsoever so all you have left is the race card and name calling.

I'm really not sure exactly what your problem is, but I happen to have a good life and more friends of all races than I can do things with, I happen to be a well dressed gentleman with manners and financially secure. I am considered good looking and drive a 650i BMW, my homes are paid for and I am very happy.

I have served my country with honor and distinction, and received a schlorship for my baseball ability, played on a national Championship team until I broke my leg sliding into second base Which ruined my baseball career, from there I joined the US Army and all the rest you can read about when my book is complete, i'm shooting for the first of the year. You will find that I mix well in most any environment..Politics excluded. Really don't much matter or care if you believe or not. You read my book when it comes out.
