Obama Lets It Slip About His Muslim Faith

Speaking to George Stephanopoulos today on This Week Barack Obama caused a stir with just three simple words, “my Muslim faith.” Obama was running his line about they want to scare you, and Stephanopoulos interrupted and explained, “the McCain campaign has never suggested you have Muslim connections.” “I don’t think that when you look at what is being promulgated on Fox News, let’s say, and Republican commentators who are closely allied to these folks,” Obama said. Stephanopoulos then replied, “But John McCain said that’s wrong.” “Let’s not play games,” Obama said. “What I was suggesting — you’re absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you’re absolutely right that that has not come.” Stephanopoulos interrupted Obama to correct him by saying, “Christian faith.” Obama then figured out what he said and explained, “Well, what I’m saying is that he hasn’t suggested that I’m a Muslim. And I think that his campaign’s upper echelons have not, either. What I think is fair to say is that, coming out of the Republican camp, there have been efforts to suggest that perhaps I’m not who I say I am when it comes to my faith — something which I find deeply offensive, and that has been going on for a pretty long time.”

  1. Well, the Swift-Boaters” are really plugged in, and are in full force with “proof” that Obama spoke of “my Muslim faith” in an interview show this Sunday. He was speaking of his “alleged” faith, but that makes no difference to the evil-doers out there. They took their little snippet and are going to town with it all over youtube. What do you guys think about all this? I give my point of view at peoplepowergranny.blogspot.com. People need to start thinking critically in this election.
