Like many Marxists in public view, he becomes whatever is expedient. In Indonesia he was sort of Muslim, in America, he is sort of Christian.
He no longer goes to a church - he's "looking" for one.
He would go to a mosque, if he could get away with it, but he's really happiest with his Marxist buddies in private.
He is the "Nowhere Man" who sort of rules the world - when Soros lets him.
it's all about 'Control'..I find it strange what all the uproar is about this election; plenty of questions with obvious answers. So what if the Dems lose control of congress
? when they wake up the morning of November 3rd, who the President ? what's the fear factor ? Obama can no longer raise taxes on the middle class ? omg...that would be awful for the nightly BSNBC news

At any rate, he doesn't understand "complicated concepts" like common sense and his views are not very realistic since he doesn't work for a living. He just sits back and collects a big fat government check.
And if you argue with him too much, he will accuse you of being me because in his simple mind, everyone who disagrees with him, is me.

If Obama came out tomorrow and said, I have the cure for cancer, I swear they would call a press conference and say: Hold on, we're not sure this is the right thing to do. We got a lot of money from the cancer people. And we're not sure this -- but this could affect jobs, this could affect growth, what about the people who cure cancer? What about the people who operate on the people who have cancer?

First off, i want to state that that Obama is NOT the first President to tinker with states rights. Federally mandated speed limits, seat belt laws, and car insurance come to mind very quickly as does MLK day. States were forced to pass these laws or lose federal funding. Legalized extortion, basically. Secondly, he has to support the right to build the Mosque. The question is so straight forward, there is no room to manuever. His oath of office rquires him to support thr RIGHT to BUILD the mosque, now if he actually supports the Mosque itself, different story. The Mosque has no place being built anywhere near ground zero. Thirdly- as a Christian, i have a hard time understanding a religion that teaches violence. However, as a Christian i also have to remember our own history. The Holy Crusades that were carried out against the Muslim people did have the goal of exterminating and converting the Muslim world to Christianity. We as Chrstians have done this throughout history. If they didnt adopt our God and ways of life, we killed them. And as Americans, we have done the same thing. So, be careful casting blame when we have done the same thing for centuries.

Lets get the facts straight.This has nothing to do with the Constitution,except in Hussein Obama's mind and the rest of the far left social liberals.Hussein Obama thought he saw an opportunity to help shore up his dropping approval ratings.I thinks that they are now down in the 40's now.

It has been said time and time again,even by leading Muslims,that this is about SENTITIVITY,but all of you liberal are stuck on Constitutional Rights.Everybody knows that they have their Constitutional Right to build a mosque any where they chose.

Many Americans lost family members in the 911 attacks by RADICAL MUSLIMS and as stated by many Muslim leaders they see this as a slap in the face of Americans who lost family members there.So quite try to make this something it's not.

What part doesn't Hussein Obama understand about this statement,"IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CONSTITUTION"?

Hussein Obama made the statement as quoted by Bill Burton:Deputy White House press secretary Bill Burton said it was "not politics" but Obama's feeling that he had the obligation as president to "make sure people are treated equally" under the Constitution.The question is,was this just for show because it was made at a Ramadan Dinner at the White House with most of the guest being MUSLIMS?

This is his remarks a day later after being surrounded by American:Obama has said that religious freedom allows the mosque to be built. But he says he's not commenting on "the wisdom" of building a mosque two blocks from ground zero.It seems Hussein Obama wants his cake and eat it to.
Tell us straight out Hussein Obama,DO YOU SUPPORT THE BUILDING OF THE MOSQUE OR NOT?What does your WISDOM tell you we should do?

Here is what the #1 Democrat thinks:WASHINGTON (AP)- The Senate's top Democrat on Monday came out against plans to build a mosque near the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, moving away from President Barack Obama on the controversial election-year issue.

The Democrats are definity imploding and Hussein Obama is the MAJOR cause.He is a one term man and he knows it.This is why he is trying to DESTROY AMERICA.

Yeah, funny thing about these guys. To a lot of folks on the far left, Obama is a disappointment because they think he's too conservative and carrying out too many of Bush's policies. To all of the nuts on the far right, he's far too black for them...or communist...or Muslim...or not American. It's just amazing to me that no matter what he does, they will try to spin it into a conspiracy or a move toward communism and the minute you hit them up with facts, they go nuts.

I used to try to argue with them but then it dawned on me that they can't be saved. When their collective gene pool starts to look like a mud puddle, it's time to just move on. Make fun of them...yes. Piss them off...yes. But argue with them...you'd be better off arguing with a turnip.

Yes, from Obama's standpoint, it has everything to do with the constitution. He said they have every right to build there according to the constitution. A day later, he said that even though they had the right, he didn't think it was a wise decision. Why are you leaving that part out? Because Fox News isn't telling you that part?

Look Tea Bagger, you may be just that dumb, but that doesn't mean everyone else is. Let's break this down for you. He said they have right under the constitution to build the mosque. You even said that up there. Then he said, that doesn't mean their decision is a wise one. Why does that mean he is having his cake and eating it too? He spoke about the law and then he gave his opinion.

How does cheating the Governemnt out of paying taxes equal to him not being a devoted Christian?
I hate to tell you this sweetie, but a lot of people would be condemned if that were the reason:)
lol...not to mention, organized religions don't have to pay ANY taxes whatsoever on their profits...are they all bad christians?
BUT HERE'S THE BEST PART...they did a TWENTY YEAR cover up...so that no one would know he's really a muslim? Why? Many Americans are Muslims? It's not illegal or anti American. We all know his father was a muslim...so how is he hiding it? Where is your logic??? lol!
...and FYI, there is nothing more ANTI Muslim, than spending 20 years promoting the christian religion, in the christian church, giving to the christian church, praying to Jesus...lol ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!???
All you have to do is use common sense:)
The more you hate Obama, the more you get desperate, and the more you sound INSANE!
Also, you can be muslim and be president...so what would be the motive for a 20 year cover up?
<quoted text>
NO WRONG! It wasn't "Muslims" that attacked us...lol...It was AL QUAEDA!!!
DUH...are you really that dense, or is this a troll?
How does he come from a Muslim background? Because his dad shot out some sperm, and was Muslim at the same time?...wow, nice logic!
FYI...9/11 happened 9 years ago...he is DOCUMENTED as a member of the Christian church for OVER 20 YEARS!! So you do the math....how does that add up?
Not to mention, if he changed his religion to be elected to the senate after 9/11...yet he was elected to the Ill. senate in 1997!!! LOL!
You must feel soooo dumb!
<quoted text>
Explain EXACTLY how he's bending over backwards for the Muslims...explain exactly please??? I'm sure you can't.
Wrecking the country? WOW...how so?
You do know that Bush caused the recession right?...and that repubs are CRYING because Onama isn't getting us out "fast enough"...lol!
How soon repubs forget what go us here!
Lets see...a stimulus plan that prevented economic collapse! Health care reform! Extending unemployment! Extending the tax breaks for those who make under $250,000 a year, while cutting the BUsh tax break for only the top 1% wealthy!!...how is he wrecking the country?
<quoted text>
Where are you not getting it?
We can't just rip up the constitution whenever it doesn't support our feeling...right?
This 100% has to do with the constitution...nothing more:)
<quoted text>...again, why are you confusing Al Quaeda with ALL Muslims?
You do know that Most Muslims are peaceful, and many MUsims died in 9/11 too you know?
If a christain moved next to me...would I be mad because the Christian McVeigh bombed the federal building...no!
See the point?
The church is exempt from paying taxes and unless you don't know this but AL-QUAEDA is a Muslim radical terrorist group like HAMAS,hence the word "Muslim"
So you call killing family members for converting from Islam to another religion or for defying Islamic beliefs is peaceful?...strange,strange,st range.
If they are a peaceful religion then I'm father Abraham,the father of many nations.That's what I can't understand about you people,Muslims wants to kill you and your family,friends and neighbors because they consider you an infidel because you won't bow down and worship their god Allah but nevertheless you're still willing to kiss their ass,give them the keys to the city and role out the red carpet for them.
Its like you have no courage,no moral value and no respect for yourself as if you don't give a damn about this country.
Instead of defending ourselves against these terrorists you all want to (figuratively speaking) lay in bed with them.
Can't you see that these Muslims hate America and they want to kill Americans which means you too?

Quran Surah 5 Verse No 32 says that ” If you kill an innocent human, it is as though you have killed the entire humanity.” and the people in the twin towers were innocent so according to islam those terrorists were not among muslims . GOT IT

Although I applaud any attempt of any one in D.C. to uphold their Oath of Office; why pretend now that the Constitution is not "just a god-damned piece of paper" while the Patriot Act & Homeland Security Act have already pretty much burned it?

And, New Yorkers, where were you in July 2007 when I tried to get a Recall of the judge that let 100% off the Saudi Royal that let the Saudi royal & Bin Laden totally off in July 2007; even though there was "irrefutable evidence" that they DIRECTLY financed most of the 9/11 operation-even providing funds direct to some of the now dead terrorists? And they just happened to be here 9/11 for a ONE DAY trip, for and at a breakfast meeting with Bush Sr. with table reservations that specified a direct view of the one of the crash sights? Of course everyone knows that GWB flew them & 160 more of their "family members" from places around the country, home; during the "no fly" period, when even other former U.S. Prezs and U.S. VPs couldn't fly home to their families.

Why don't they take this isolated unConstitutional anger & INSIST ALL MUSLIMS be placed in the portable prison camps U.S. taxpayers have been renting for millions per month since November 2001 from Halliburton (as well as additional "hidden" costs of the contract), or get an answer from somebody what exactly were/are these prison camps for?(scattered in EACH state, enough to hold almost 1/2 the population of the local area).

What about "keeping your enemies close" so you may keep an eye on them? There is a mosque within a block of the "community center" location...

Irrational to me. Strange way to illustrate "patriotism"...I can't quite understand or relate.

This can only be about first amendment rights. People have freedom of speech. If I don't like what they're saying, it's tough. I can ask them not to voice their opinion because I am sensitive. If they don't listen to me, I'm s.o.l. Not much I can do about it. I know that. I can say what they're saying is not right, not true, or crazy but I can't just expect that person discontinue saying it because a lot of people don't like what they're saying or doing. If they're not breaking the law and they're within their constitutional rights, there's not anyone can do about it. You can't blame someone for acting within their constitutional rights no matter how insensitive it is. That's America. Land of the free. If they're free to do it, putting up with it is the cost of sharing those very same rights. I can't have EVERYTHING my way. I'm not a child. I know that.

I don't understand why so many people EXPECT to get what they want like they're ENTITLED to get their way. Personally, I don't agree that it's the sensitive thing to do.-No, I don't. But I don't walk around my whole life expecting everyone to be sensitive to my needs or desires. Esp, when that person or org has every RIGHT to do what they want.

I don't like hate groups but I will be the first to defend their freedom of speech because it's also MY freedom of speech on the line. You wanna start pushing people off a slide, get ready for that slippery slope yourself.

God revealed to mankind the True Church by which He is to be worshipped, and gave His only Son to the Whole Wide World the redeemer of the sins of Mankind. Islam worships a satanic counterfeit "god" and must be wiped of the face of the earth.
Jesus Christ fulfilled the prophecies concerning the Promised Messias, claimed to be the Messias and the Son of God, and publicly worked the most stupendous miracles (especially His Resurrection) to prove His claim. No other religion has this divine proof. Jesus Christ Himself founded a Church which we know from Sacred Scripture, Tradition and actual history to be the Catholic Church.
Islam on the other hand is a false religion, and Error has no rights, since rights are a claim given ultimately by God.
Obama's relativity a shocking evidence of the decay in America...That a false religion is as good as the True Church. That homosexual sodomy is as good as traditional. That night is day, up is down, black is white.

For one thing,Rev. Wright is a hate monger posing as a religious pastor to cheat the government out of paying taxes,he's not morally devoted to be a Christian pastor and secondly that whole thing about Obama being a Christian is a cover up to hide his Muslim roots.
Since we were attacked by Muslims and Obama comes from a Muslim background he knew that he had to falsely change his religious views before he became senator and since the attack on the USS Cole,some of our embassies over seas and of course 9/11 he painted his self as a Christian of which he is not a Christian at all.
Since becoming president if he isn't bending over backwards or I should say bowing down to the Muslims,he is wrecking the country with his bad decisions and inexperience as well as going on vacation every time you to turn around.
About the Mosque being built near ground zero,this is not a question really about the US Constitution this is about respect for the victims of 9/11 and their families.
Let me put it to you this way,would you appreciate it if someone killed a member of your family that you was very close to and that person bought a house right next door to you?
How would you feel about that where you had to walk out every single day for something and there that person is standing there as if to be laughing at what they did to your family?
Again,this is not about constitutional rights,this is about respect for others.
Delusional much? The terrorist that flew those jets into the twin towers are no longer here and have nothing to do with this building, your analogy sucks.
