Obama was in Chicago during Christmas 2007 ("I'm no Muslim")
DAILY NEWS ^ | Sunday, December 23rd 2007 | MICHAEL SAUL

A day before he will fly back to Chicago to spend Christmas with his family, a voter asked Barack Obama to explain his "Muslim background" - an Internet-fed fallacy that continues to dog his campaign.

According to this article, Obama was headed home for Christmas last year, despite his statement that he was not present for the Christmas sermon by Bullfrog. We are close to priving Obama lied!!

The TRUTH is whatever you can get others to believe. They’ve counted on the short memories of the gullible to work this game for millenia. Now we now have the Web and people actually fact-checking can get the word out, but it’ll take a while yet for evolution to weed out these scum.

Why on earth are Conservatives carrying the Hildabeast's water on this one. Doesn't everyone realize that she is the one pulling the puppet strings on this one? She wants US to knock Obama off for her.

People wake up! She is far more dangerous than Obama could ever dream of being. If she is the nominee, our nation is doomed.

McCain can clean Obama's clock in the General Election, he cannot beat the beast. She will do whatever it takes to achieve her lifelong goal.

Save this stuff for the general election AFTER we are sure that Obama is the nominee. It's suicidal to knock Obama off now and ensure that the Beast enters the Whitehouse.

I agree with you, but you have to realize that there’s conflicting paths involved - the GOP wants him nominated so Juan can beat him (easy), Hillary wants to become POTUS, she needs to knock him out NOW.

We need not be carrying the beast's water however. Save up the data, then unleash it as soon as Obama secures the nomination.

We are playing the part of Hillary!'s puppets. And she will cackle all the way to the Whitehouse.

I am not saying to turn it off. I am saying to research, store, and unleash at an appropriate time.

Trying to sink Obama now only ensures a Hildabeast Presidency.

Remember, the Beast doesn't have to beat McCain, she only has to get it close. Her minions will do the rest.

No, not really.

If the democrat primary goes to convention, that’s really only a 2 month campaign between solely mccain and the democrat after it’s done.

In the mean time, obama’s negatives are going higher without mccain having to get himself messy, clinton is ruining the democratic brand for many younger voters who would never trust the dems again if she is nominated and she will ensure that many, many other democrats (blacks, extreme liberals, etc) will not vote for her because of the way she kneecapped their ‘golden boy’ obama.

The longer the trench warfare goes on, the more costly it is to both sides.

That strategy was working until the MSM “discovered” what we knew for literally years - she’s using her MSM ties to ensure she’s the nominee.

There’s not much I can do about it while the Democrat primaries are going on - I’ll just say Juan needs to come up with a way to beat Hillary.

Not sure I agree with that. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't know. Either way, I truly believe that she would be easier to defeat in November. If he get the nomination, I'm afraid we will have ourselves a Marxist Muslim President.

Freedomwarrior, I have been off and on FR most of the day. There is one person who signed on today that has posted THREE threads, all about Obama and his minister.

FR is being used by some to do Hillary's dirty works.

Keep an eye open my FRiend, there will be more and more of them in the coming days,

When it is all over, Hillary can blame the right wing for his downfall.

He could be in Chicago and NOT have been at the church services......

Not trying to excuse Barack for the behavior of his pastor, but he could have missed the Christmas service- after all, why would a born Muslim want to go to Christmas services??

A different kind of church appearance for Obama

by John McCormick

MASON CITY, Iowa – Attending church with Sen. Barack Obama here today was a much different experience than one a few weeks ago in a struggling neighborhood in Des Moines.

The congregation of 100 or so here at the First Congregational United Church of Christ was almost entirely white, while the one at Union Missionary Baptist Church was almost completely black.

And so Obama’s low-key approach during a five-minute greeting to the gathering was significantly different than the fiery message he delivered in Des Moines or at other black churches he attends.

From the start, the pastor acknowledged as much, commenting on how the congregation is heavily “northern European,” a group she suggested is more staid in its approach to church music.

As he typically does, Obama first mentioned his home church of Trinity United Church of Christ. But he simply said it was in Chicago, rather than stressing that it was on the city’s South Side as he did in Des Moines.

After rising from his second-row pew, where he was seated next to one of his precinct captains, Obama’s message to the church was that he is trying to apply the values he has learned in church to life on the campaign trail.

“During this holiday season and during this political season, I’m continually reminded that the values that I learned … in church as part of the UCC community, are values that can’t just stay in church, but have to be applied outside of church,” he said.

How could he, a good family man - with a wife that is hitched at the hip to the church and it's leaders spewings - and "O" himself hitched to the other hip = how could he NOT have gone to church that Sunday -

If for no other reason than to appear a good Christian...

trap is getting tighter -

Guess his momma never taught him the one about "Oh what tangled webs we weave..."

“She is far more dangerous than Obama could ever dream of being.”

And why are you supporting Obama? Wake up and look at the polls. Even with all the negative press this past week, Obama still has strong support across all democrats. Why do you think Hillary is sweating bullets?

I've asked this on FR before, but never really gotten gotten a good answer:

If Obama USED to be a Muslim, then that makes him an apostate.

Why isn't the usual bunch of ragheads grousing about "Death to Obama"?

Do they know something about him WE don't?

People wake up! She is far more dangerous than Obama could ever dream of being.

Do you mean more electable, or more dangerous as president? I can't for the life of me imagine how anybody could consider her a more dangerous and damaging president. Obama has pretty much pledged to surrender Iraq immediately, God knows where his true loyalties actually lie. Hillary is despised by great numbers of people, would be thwarted at every turn by incompetence, and likely be bounced in four yeas after surrendering the congress mid term. Besides, have you considered the entertainment value of Bubba as first man?

Besides, consider how splintered the Dems will be after any Clinton nomination victory, no matter how it comes off. If BHO crashes and burns when exposed as a closet race hustler, it will still embitter large number of blacks and young groupies that the Beast will need November, and not have. If she has to pull teeth and overcome a delegate deficit, the fallout will be even worse. Relax and enjoy the spectacle.
