    Exclamation The Emergence of President Obama's Muslim Roots

    The Emergence of President Obama's Muslim Roots
    The Emergence of President Obama's Muslim Roots - Political Punch
    June 02, 2009 6:58 PM

    ABC News' Jake Tapper and Sunlen Miller report: The other day we heard a comment from a White House aide that never
    would have been uttered during the primaries or general election
    campaign.

    During a conference call in preparation for President Obama's trip to
    Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National
    Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said
    "the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he
    was able to -- or before he's been able to visit, really, the heart of
    the Islamic world -- you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a
    Muslim father -- obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of
    Illinois and Chicago."

    Given widespread unease and prejudice against Muslims among Americans,
    especially in the wake of 9/11, the Obama campaign was perhaps
    understandably very sensitive during the primaries and general
    election to downplay the candidate's Muslim roots.

    The candidate was even offended when referred to by his initials
    "BHO," because he considered the use of his middle name, "Hussein," an
    attempt to frighten voters.

    With insane rumors suggesting he was some sort of Muslim Manchurian
    candidate, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., and his campaign did
    everything they could to emphasize his Christianity and de-emphasize
    the fact that his father, Barack Obama Sr., was born Muslim.

    The candidate's comment at a Boca Raton, Florida, town hall meeting on
    May 22, 2008, was typical: "My father was basically agnostic, as far
    as I can tell, and I didn't know him," he said.

    In September 2008, candidate Obama told a Pennsylvania crowd, "I know
    that I'm not your typical presidential candidate and I just want to be
    honest with you. I know that the temptation is to say, 'You know what?
    The guy hasn't been there that long in Washington. You know, he's got
    a funny name. You know, we're not sure about him.' And that's what the
    Republicans when they say this isn't about issues, it's about
    personalities, what they're really saying is, 'We're going to try to
    scare people about Barack. So we're going to say that, you know, maybe
    he's got Muslim connections.'...Just making stuff up."

    Back then, the campaign's "Fight the Smears" website addressed the
    candidate's faith without mentioning his father's religion:

    "Barack Obama is a committed Christian. He was sworn into the Senate
    on his family Bible. He has regularly attended church with his wife
    and daughters for years. But shameful, shadowy attackers have been
    lying about Barackís religion, claiming he is a Muslim instead of a
    committed Christian. When people fabricate stories about someoneís
    faith to denigrate them politically, thatís an attack on people of all
    faiths. Make sure everyone you know is aware of this deception."

    The website also provided quotes from the Boston Globe and Newsweek
    mentioning his father's roots.

    Since the election, however, with the threat of the rumors at least
    somewhat abated, the White House has been increasingly forthcoming
    about the president's roots. Especially when reaching out to the
    Muslim world.

    In his April 6 address to the Turkish Parliament, President Obama
    referenced how many "Americans have Muslims in their families or have
    lived in a Muslim majority country. I know, because I am one of them."

    Who gives a RATS AZZ what religion he grew up with? Does he attend an Islamic church now or Christian?

    You guys should be applauding the fact that he has converted to Christianity!

    Cool Not the most important thing to me.

    Personally, I don't about whether or not he is Muslim. My biggest concern is that he is definitely a socialist, and more probably a Marxist communist.

    The point is that he is a two faced lier period. The Muslim reglion is dangerous. A Marxist that is one reglion one time a Christian another and the next time who knows is really dangerous. He will say anything and be anything to advance himself.
