Well, if he's not Muslim, but rather a Christian, then what the hell is wrong with him? Something's not right because we (USA) are still going to Hell in a hand basket, and he seems content with that. I'm not seeing that his "changes" are for the betterment of the USA.

So many haters out there!

It is one thing to disagree with the President's policies, but to believe all of these lies is beyond comprehension. Some people are willing to believe anything about this president. It has been established that President Obama was born in this country and is a Christian.

Personally I don't care what religion he is. This country was founded on freedom of religion. Many of our first settlers came here to escape religious persecution in their native countries. The diversity of the people and the different religions in this country is one of the things that makes it great.

Americans are so lazy. They are content to believe all of the distortions put out by FoxNews (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Republican Party). The Republicans are a party of the rich. They always have been. Somehow Republicans convince the middle class to vote for them.
Anyone who stands up for the middle class is considered a Socialist. Who can forget the lies put out against Senator Kerry (Swift-boat lies). I guess if you spend enough money spreading lies, people will eventually believe them.

America's standing in the world has definitely improved under President Obama. He has accomplished so much is such a short period of time. In addition to winning a Nobel Prize, he became the president to finally reform the health care system. He stood up to Wall Street and encouraged Congress to pass the strongest reform of the financial system since the Great Depression. Guess which party controlled the White House when the Great Depression started?
Most respected economists agree that the recession would be much worse if a stimulus program had not been passed. Has anyone noticed that the auto companies and the banks are starting to pay back the bailout money paid by the government?
FDR was one of our greatest presidents. He faced substantial opposition from Republicans, similar to the opposition against Mr. Obama. He persevered, and because he did, programs like social security, unemployment insurance and many other programs that benefit those less fortunate are in place. The Republicans did NOT want these programs. For those of you those of you that have older parents, ask yourself where your parents would be without Social Security and Medicare?

History will be the judge of President Obama's performance.

Why doesn't he just produce his birth certificate??? That would solve a lot of the bickering. When people apply for jobs, to register to vote, to get a passport etc etc etc they must produce a birth certificate..why doesn't he???
Why hasn't he attended church while in office????
And he prays everyday??? So do the Muslims!!!!
And....how come his scholastic records have been sealed??? Also, you don't hear from 'any of his friends/classmates' when he went to college. Anyone else in public office...we hear of 'stories' about those years. We DO know about (Rev) Wright and Bill Ayres....but that is all....
Why is he so damn close-mouthed about his previous life????
Too damn many unanswered questions....
Hell, "THEY" had a lot of crap to yak about when Bush was running/elected. Even the crap about John Kerry and his military 'story'.
Yeah, I know..."Oh there is another 'birther' posting this crap....SO WHAT????
NoBamaRama is flushing this country right down the crapper.....AND he works for US...and WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO QUESTION HIS QUALIFICATIONS TO BE PRESIDENT!!!..or did you forget the president works for the CITIZENS of the USA????

I think he is doing a fantastic job and needs to keep pushing through all the negative. People will always look for some reason to hate others, I choose to look for the positive. A huge mess was dumped in his lap and he is doing what he can with resistance all the way. If our government would work together on behalf of the American people instead of spreading untruths to get the next vote our country would be so much stronger.

There are millions of Americans that don't have birth certificates and he has proven he is American, this the most ridiculous argument of all. As for the Muslim, what difference does it make? I don't remember there being a rule that one had to be Christian to be President. George Bush was a proclaimed Christian and he destroyed the Country, not really seeing your reasoning.

Every politician that has ever been has lied to the American people, is it right...no but it is how it is. I think Obama is the best thing that has happened in this country in decades. Once people start to benefit from his hard work they will realize how wrong they were to judge him so harshly but until then I will just keep believing in his desire to do what is right for the majority of this country.

Born a muslim (muslim father).
Entire extended family is muslim.
Lived with a muslim stepfather in a muslim country.
Was educated in muslim schools, where his religion was listed as muslim.
As President, interfered and financially supported a fundamentalism muslim candidate in Kenya.
Knows the muslim call to prayer and praises it as beautiful.
Wrote in his biographer that when the chips are down, he will stand with the muslims.
Bowed low to the Saudi King, the highest secular authority in Islam (guardian of Mecca and Medina).
Apologized for American foreign policy in a muslim capital.
Is allowing Iran to go nuclear.
Equates Palestinians' "suffering" with the Jews' suffering in the Holocaust.
Does not attend church, and hasn't joined one in DC.
Has never attended a public religious service while in office.
Has never declared a National Day of Prayer, nor attended a prayer breakfast or similar non-sectarian event (muslim law would forbid it).
Says America is not a Christian nation.
Held a Ramadan dinner where he supported the establishment of a mega-mosque overlooking Ground Zero.
In an interview referred to "my muslim faith."
Refuses to identify islamic terrorism by name.
Downplays the role of islamic jihad in the Ft Hood assassinations, Detroit Christmas bomb attempt, Times Square bomb attempt.
Vowed to close Guantanamo and give foreign combatants held there full US constitutional rights.

Given all those facts, what are we to believe? That membership in Rev. Wright's hate-America pseudo-Christian congregation— which he has downplayed and virtually denied — makes him a Christian?

It just shows how easily people are lead by a fear based media. I wish people would stop and think every now and then and realize how much money these people make when they freak people out. It's totally irresponsible journalism.

Edited and corrected:

As President, interfered in a free election by financially supporting (with taxpayer money) a fundamentalism muslim candidate in Kenya.

Wrote in his biography that when the chips are down, he will stand with the muslims.

What is your point? He doesn't have to be Christian to be president. Even though the media is trying to induce fear I feel safer now than I have in the last 10 years.

Why were his medical records not published during the campaign?
Why are his undergraduate records and student loan records unavailable — would they reveal that he was registered as a foreign student, Barry Soetoro, at UC Irvine?
Why are all his undergraduate writings and transcripts hidden?
Who paid for his education at Columbia and Harvard Law?

What is in this man's past that requires so much secrecy?

I'm not quite sure how people have become so ignorant. It's astonishing that people actually believe what they read. All politicians have agendas, but Obama seems to be the only one who is trying to better it for the PEOPLE.
Oh, sorry if you are one of the people who make over 200,000 a year and will have higher taxes. Honestly, if you can't live off that, that's your problem.

Oh-how can he push through and do what he says he wants to do when he has to go through all the bull to even get certain things passed? He has been doing what he can with the Republican party protesting everything he does.
