Its at the 10:52am part of the ABC This Week show.
I wonder why he doesn’t use Barry rather than the very islamic sounding Barrack? It doesn’t make sense, especially after our country has been attacked by islamic whackos. I think he has sympathies for them.
GS: You mention your Christian faith, yesterday you took off after the repbs for suggesting your Muslim connections. Just a few mins ago, Rick Davis, umm.. John McCain’s campaign manager said they’ve never done that, this is a false and cynical attempt to play victim.
BO: You.. you.. you know what? I.. I... I mean, these guys love to throw a rock and.. and... and hide.. hide their hand the ...
GS: The McCain campaign has never suggested you have Muslim connections.

Something which I find deeply offensive and that has been going on for a pretty long time.
