Obama's "Inner Muslim"
By John W. Lillpop
Barring any conviction for high crimes and misdemeanors, Barack Hussein Obama has secured the White House until at least 2012.
Knowing where his mail will be delivered and where he will be sleeping for the foreseeable future seems to have liberated the new president, whom now has the luxury of finally coming out of the religious closet with regard to his Muslim roots.
Obama began his self-induced "outing" in Turkey on April 15 when he proudly declared that America is NOT a Christian nation.
It is estimated that about 75 percent of the adult population in America is Christian, therefore, the president's declaration came as a huge surprise to about 160 million American adults.
Obama added to his religious quagmire by declaring that America, the nation that is not Christian, is one of the world's largest Muslim nations.
As reported at Telegraph.co.uk, in part:
"It is important to note that "if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world".
"So says President Barack Obama. Or I should say: Barack Hussein Obama.
"That's right: Barack Hussein Obama. Say it proud. Say it out loud. The middle moniker that dared not speak its name during the election campaign is now front and centre of the US president's attempt to woo the Muslim world, the theme of his visits to Riyadh on Wednesday and Cairo on Thursday.
"Petrified of the potential political fallout of being branded a Muslim, Candidate Obama - a practicing Christian - never used the name "Hussein" and its use was frowned upon as a forbidden code for the nutty accusation that he was some kind of Islamic Manchurian candidate.
"No more. To say Barack Hussein Obama - BHO for short - now appears to be the height of political correctness."
"As ABC's Jake Tapper and Sunlen Miller astutely outline here, the Obama administration is embracing the new president's inner Muslim, as it were. Deputy national security adviser stated that Obama had "experienced Islam on three continents...growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans [are] a key part of Illinois and Chicago."
"So that's once, twice, three times a Muslim?"
How thoughtful of Obama and the Democrats to shield the American people from that information during the presidential campaign.
After all, transparency is not without cost!
Thanks also to John McCain who refused to bring up Obama's religiosity for fear of distorting the election. Better to have quietly retreated on the question, right John?
