Video: No, Obama didnít ďadmitĒ to being a Muslim on ABC
hotair ^ | Allahpundit

Posted on 09/07/2008 12:46:16 PM PDT by flyfree

Within 10 minutes of this airing we’d already gotten four or five e-mails about it; 20 minutes later, a bowdlerized version had already hit YouTube and begun circulating. I despise lefty sites for twisting conservatives’ words by selectively editing clips, so let’s cut this one off at the pass before it gets going. Here’s the full exchange with Stephanopoulos, making it perfectly clear that when he says “my Muslim faith” he’s referring to how the people smearing him see him, not how he sees himself. No mas, please.

Or I can't spell potato.

You left off the e.

In grade school (50s) I taught it could be spelled both ways.

He's very inarticulate, and it's hard for me to listen to such a poor speaker. However, it does seem like his "admission" is taken out of context.

But the point raised at the link is a very good one: Obama smears the McCain campaign for everything anyone says against Obama, even when McCain says "Knock off the attacks against Obama". And so on that basis, Obama MUST be responsible for all of the disgusting slurs against Palin. The fact that Obama has said "Knock off the disgusting slurs" does not matter -- at least by Obama's standards.

From what I understand, a Muslim wouldn't say “my Muslim faith.”

“Muslim” is a person who practices Islam. If it were a true Fruedian slip, Obama would have said “my Islamic faith.”

Muslim and Islam cannot be used interchangeably to describe both the person and the religion as the word “Christian” can.

Someone should get the Muslim prayer times for North America and see if Barry’s trips to the washroom with a little floor mat coincide with them. Hehe, know what I mean?

The reason Steffy corrected him was that he expected Obama to say something like “my alleged Muslim faith.” When Obama said “my Muslim faith,” Steffy panicked and tried to cover for him, which in actuality only made it worse.

If you have heard only the short clip that is on Youtume, I can understand why you would as me to elaborate what he was trying to say, but if you saw the discussion in context, you wouldn’t need to ask. He said “Senator McCain does not talk about ‘my Muslim faith’”, meaning, McCain does not say that BHO is of the Muslim faith.

True. Just like Sarah Palin never advocated teaching creationism in schools. That won’t stop either from being endlessly repeated.

The left says McCain should be tested for Alzheimer’s. Obambi’s gaffes sound just as bad. And we want to play nice... screw that, he says he is a Muslim, then he is a Muslim.

So, why did Stephanopoulos interrupt and offer the correction: “Christian faith”. And why did Obama accept the correction and repeat it?

How many Christians or Jews do you know that would make such a statement (subconciously)?? Answer.....NONE!!!!

Like someone needs Steponallofus to tell them?

Oh come on!...if a Republican misspelled potato it would be huge news that could change the course of an election.

An amoral Marxist-leaning narcissist is far more dangerous in the presidency than your typical Muslim, IMHO...

I agree with both of you. We don’t need to stoop to the RATs’ level. We have enough that is positive to focus on and Barry will probably step in it real good all on his own before too long.

"When I saw the video, it was obvious his comment was being taken out of context and people were hearing only what they wanted to hear. "

Well then obviously Stephanopoulos took him out of context too, because he felt compelled to point it out and correct him on it.

Yep, if a Republican makes a gaffe the MSM beats him over the head with it until it destroys his politcal career, but if a leftie says it, well, we all make mistakes ... move along.
