OMG. Rick Perry shook hands and signed a cultural exchange agreement with an Arab businessman?!
Damn. That is IT. I have HAD IT. I’m just going to vote Obama in 2012. < \sarcasm>
Anyone bother to look at this “Muslim”’s record? He is about as far removed from Osama bin Laden’s philosophy as James Madison is from Barack Hussein Obama: yes, both occupied the White House, but one was a protector of liberty and the other may as spit on our founding documents.
The problem is not and never was Osama Bin Laden’s “philosophy”.
The problem is the teachings actually in the Koran and the Hadith.
You get an F - in knowledge of Islam.
Moderate Islam is as acceptable as moderate euthenasia.
Thanks for adding a little insight into this. PDS should now stand for Perry Derangement Syndrome as well as Palin DS. There are many here whom I suspect of being Democrat moles.
However, Perry should be made aware that the mathematical and scientific advances attributed to the Arabs ended with Mohammed's arrival on the scene. I do not object to his being polite and complimentary to his visitors, keeping in mind that he was not so with Obama, a good thing. Some here in Texas criticized him for speaking Spanish, in which he is fluent, at an appearance in Los Angeles. That is how far the PDS has gone with some.
I approve of Perry though he may not be perfect. I would be happy with him as our nominee, just as I would with most of the others, except Romney, but I would take Romney over Obama.
You either didn’t read carefully, or don’t want to understand. It’s not that Perry has a Muslim friend, it’s that he FLEW DOWN for the groundbreaking of a mosque when he would never do such a thing for a new church. Moreover, his vomit-worthy comments about Muslim scholars and scientists ,and “cultural treasures” of this religion should be a red flag for those of us considering him. Bob
I guess you *are* a recovering democrat, given that you can’t see that Rick Perry is treating the Imam “special”
BTW, you premise (that if you don’t vote for Rick Perry you are voting for Obama) is a classic Straw Man argument.
It’s a tactic demo liberals use to change the subject when they are losing.
