Boy, you’d think after a heady vacation at Martha’s Vineyard that Barack Obama would have learned that being a whiner is not a turn on for the voters. Nope. He’s a goddamned cry baby. Here’s the boy-child from Hawaii in a sob fest with Brian Williams:
President Barack Obama dismissed a recent poll showing that a third of Americans don’t know he’s a Christian – and blamed an online campaign of misinformation by his conservative enemies for perpetuating the myth that he’s a Muslim.
Obama, speaking with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Sunday afternoon, was equally dismissive of conservative talk show host Glenn Beck – saying he didn’t watch the Fox host’s Saturday rally in Washington but wasn’t surprised that Beck was able to “stir up” people during uncertain economic times.
Williams . . . asked Obama why so many people were uncertain about something so fundamental as his faith.
“I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” quipped Obama, who took a deep breath to gather his thoughts when asked if the poll reflected his inability to communicate with voters.
“The facts are the facts. We went through some of this during the campaign — there is a mechanism, a network of misinformation that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly,” said a visibly annoyed Obama, referring to “birthers,” who have waged a guerrilla campaign questioning either the existence or the validity of his Hawaiian birth certificate.
This interview with Brian Williams is telling in many ways. A political pro would not have blurted out, “I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead.” WTF!!! This guy does not realize that bringing this subject up will simply feed the story. This is not the smooth move of a political pro. NOPE. It is an amateur drowning.
And since he mentioned it, I think it would be a pretty good idea if Barack would produce the original birth certificate. For starters his birth father was a muslim. No let’s agree that even though a baby born to a muslim father means that initially the child is a “muslim,” the reality is that the kid needs to be taught the faith before he or she becomes a praticing muslim.
Now here’s the tricky part, Barry Obama (he did not take on the name of “Barack” until he was in college) did not receive any significant religious instruction from his birth father. That education came instead from his adopted father, Lolo Soetoro.
When Barack Obama was enrolled in school (not a madrassa) in Indonesia his name in the application was listed as “BARRY SOETORO” and his religion as “muslim.” Why make up another name if he is actually BARACK OBAMA? He wasn’t. He had been legally adopted and Lolo Soetoro was raising him as his own.
Here’s the proof:
Let’s staple this on your forehead champ! Then you can start by answering some questions. At one point did you decide you were no longer a muslim? And why have you and your handlers gone to such lengths to cover up the fact that your birth certificate was amended to reflect the fact that you were adopted by Lolo. In fact, your half-sister, Maya, continues to carry the surname “Soetoro.”
Joining the church of bat-shit crazy Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not exactly the mainstream religious experience of the average American. It is an extremist sect. I don’t think there is any credible evidence that Barack has been a practicing muslim as an adult. He claims to be a Christian. I take him at his word. But he still fails to understand that the questions surrounding his faith have been generated by his own actions and statements. If you regularly fail to attend a Christian church but find time in your busy schedule to kick off the muslim religious event, Iftar, before starting your vacation, then don’t be surprised if folks start wondering if you are a muslim.
Some actual honesty might help you out of this mess. But that seems a foreign concept to you. Too bad. You once were a muslim. You once were a citizen of Indonesia. You were a young boy at the time and not competent to make these decisions on your on. At some subsequent point, while in college, you decided to change your name to Barack Hussein. You would not be the first one to do some crazy, irresponsible shit in college. You can’t hide from the truth forever. The longer you try to pretend that your past never existed the more the curiousity about what you are hiding will intensify. Bet on it.
