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

Posted on 03/15/2008 6:04:24 PM PDT by nwrep

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.

Last June, in a talk at the General Synod in Hartford, Conn., celebrating the 50th anniversary of the UCC, Obama urged church members to continue to be “troublemakers” for progressive causes such as civil rights.

Because they want him to be elected and reveal that he actually is Muslim? Didn’t “The Prophet” pedophile say that it was OK to lie to the infidels in order to advance Islam?

"My father was from Kenya, and a lot of people in his village were Muslim. He didn't practice Islam. Truth is he wasn't very religious. He met my mother. My mother was a Christian from Kansas," Obama said. "I've always been a Christian.... The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country. But I've never practiced Islam."....Obama told Michael that he lived in Indonesia, a Muslim country, as a child because his mother was teaching there...."

So is he going to get away with his lies?

When it involves his foreign policy credentials he cites his childhood in Indonesia - but other than that he forgets Indonesia.

What happened in Indonesia is not going to stay there.

Just click on the button next to the play button to stop action! I believe you have pinned him - this could be "Rather" bad for him!

Good on you!

We need yo be sure we cache this before it disappears! I can't get it to copy - but you can print it out!

We need to get this info to Hannity, Rush, Fox, O'Riley, et all NOW - This is the smoking gun and I don't think anyone Else has slowed these films down to scrutinize....

they actually zoom in on him!...the big wig, you know - This is HUGE (huge enough to spell huge correctly!)

Nope. Now is the time.

1. We want both of them slugging it out and we want Hillary competitive all the way til the convention.

2. We want to impressions formed NOW that Obama is an extremist should he somehow prevail as the dem nominee.

I don't understand why everyone is so scared of Hillary either. She has such high negatives that most of the work towards beating her has already been done.

Yet all over FR, you'll find folks whining about Rush suggesting we help her.

Okay...he's pretty will lynched now, so go ahead & try to finish him off. Just prepare yourself for this scenario...about 10 months from now...

Hillary, Bill...AND the Obamas...in full Muslim dress...waving copies of "Das Capital"...strolling down Pennsylvania Avenue on their way to the White House...along with Reverend Wright and the whole Trinity Church congregation whooping it up all along the way...toward a Brave New World...

Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we're free at last!

Why on earth are Conservatives carrying the Hildabeast's water on this one.

Because they stupidly believed that Obama would be harder to defeat than Hillary, and some of them even crossed over to vote for Hillary in the primaries.

Watching FReepers help the Clintons lynch Obama is nauseating...

FReepers voted for Hillary in the Ohio and TX primaries on orders from El Rushbo. If Hillary wins, there should be no gnashing of the teeth here, because "conservatives" helped play a role in it.

Hillary will be the nominee. She has ALL the trump cards. They are called stolen FBI files. Remember those? No matter how many delegates B. Hussein go to the convention with, HC will play her trump cards and the supers that wandered off the reservation will wander right back. Take that to the bank.

“...I’m afraid we will have ourselves a Marxist Muslim President.”

In a democracy, the country always gets the type of president it deserves. But then again, what is wrong with having a Muslim in the WH. Aren’t they followers of the ROP, and are we not letting them into the country in waves, and are we not accomodating them on a daily basis? Then why worry?

(And let’s not split hairs about whether the US is a democracy or a representative republic.)

"Save this stuff for the general election AFTER we are sure that Obama is the nominee."


It is highly unlikely that it would come out after the primaries. The GOP and McCain would not go near it with a 10 foot pole and the media is only exposing this because Hillary is pushing for it. There is no way that they would be on this if it was McCain and the GOP trying to expose it. I say let the two knock each other out in the primary, they have already slipped behind McCain in national polls and it they still have a hotly contested race in front of them.

Obama scares me more than Hillary.

That's ridiculous. Obama is nothing more than a low-level corrupt Chicago politician. Trust me, when the general election rolls around, a lot of people who backed Obama are going to do some thinking. The guilty white liberals are not going to support him. Why do you think Ferraro and Rep King came out with those statements? The guy's not ready for the big-time and Americans who love their nation are going to come all out in opposition of him.

"Obama scares me more than Hillary."


Me too, Hillary already has high negatives. Obama, on the other hand was practically considered a saint until now. There is NO WAY that we could get to him if he won the nomination without first getting bloodied up. McCain and the GOP not go near this and the MSM would tar and feather any conservative groups who tried to expose this if simply ignoring them did not work. I prefer to let Hillary and her goons wear the racist tag.

With the proportional representation in the Democratic Primaries and the high delegate concentration in gerrymandered black districts, it is highly unlikely that she will overtake Obama before the convention. That means she would ave to steal the thing at the convention. She has already burned a lot of bridges in this campaign to go along with her high negatives, stealing the nomination at the convention would almost cripple her in the general.

Yep...and Obama will definitely be her VP...to avert a riot at the Convention & placate Obama supporters...

THEN...especially here at FR...the REAL gnashing of teeth will begin...until that January '09 day when true HORROR sets in as Hillary, Bill, the Obamas & Rev. Wright with his congregation ALL stroll down Pennsylvania Avenue on their way to the White House...

Is crazy uncle still preaching until June?

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB120511457633523621.html...

Mr. Wright, who will be ending his 36-year tenure as the church's senior pastor in June, has previously been criticized for comments deriding President George Bush and lauding Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. Now Mr. Wright's and his successor's repeated enthusiastic promotion of their famous parishioner may be running afoul of federal tax law, which says churches can endanger their tax-exempt status by endorsing or opposing candidates for public office.

"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."


This should be repeated often. The damage being done now could affect he Dems long after November.

Complete and total nonsense you just posted. Obama is more left than she is. If Obama were to win on the far-left agenda, he would be emboldened to act as a far-left president.

Hillary will run to the center after the nomination and govern a bit to the right of the fringe kooks (like her husband did)

Hillary is obviously bad news, but Obama and his direct ties the muslim world would be far more dangerous as president.
