    Reading comprehension and/or improving your listening skills will go a long way towards understanding what he really said. The following quote is taken directly from the President's speech in reference to Jim Crow laws in their historical context where such laws were followed sometimes with religious justification behind them:He never said that Christians initiated Jim Crow laws. He did say that were some who justified their actions when adhering to Jim Crow laws based on their religious faith something we all know to be very true.
    Then, in order to clarify things, he should have mentioned who these people were and named some names. How often was often? This connection, while being applied to the Crusades and high horses, makes his intent to associate Christianity with Islamic terrorism very clear.

    Why would he mention this at all while still not saying who's committing all the terrorism in the world?

    Now we even have his goofy electorate claiming that anyone who raises their voices about abortion is a terrorist. This is yet another example how a leader can manipulate their followers into believing, excusing and supporting whatever he or she has to say, no matter how deep their history of lies and deceit. It's no different from followers of any religion.

    No need to be sorry at all. BHO is an incompetent, no matter what the color of his skin. However this man arrived where he did largely because of racist policies and accusations, just as in those you just suggested, that any criticism, or even a lack of support, was racist. There is a depth of ignorance here that will not be easy for the American political or economic system to solve.


    but it doesn't change the truth. If you're not intelligent enough to read back through the thread to see why I posted that comment, then you'll just have to live with the disappointment of never knowing.
    I tend not to read your posts unless they're directed at me. You're just not that interesting though I try to be polite.

    It's any leaders job to speak the truth, yes. It really is.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Now you're just being ridiculous.

    This connection, while being applied to the Crusades and high horses, makes his intent to associate Christianity with Islamic terrorism very clear.
    Only insofar as acknowledging that followers of both religions - Christianity and Islam - have used their religious faith to justify their wicked actions. That's all.

    Why would he mention this at all while still not saying who's committing all the terrorism in the world?
    He did call ISIL out for their barbarism during his speech.

    We see ISIL, a brutal, vicious death cult that, in the name of religion, carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism -- terrorizing religious minorities like the Yezidis, subjecting women to rape as a weapon of war, and claiming the mantle of religious authority for such actions.
    Again, either you weren't listening or you didn't read the transcript for yourself and instead are just spouting off what you've heard from the conservative radio talking heads.

    Now we even have his goofy electorate claiming that anyone who raises their voices about abortion is a terrorist. This is yet another example how a leader can manipulate their followers into believing, excusing and supporting whatever he or she has to say, no matter how deep their history of lies and deceit.

    Come now, Grant. People have been calling those who bomb abortion clinics "terrorist" for years, as far back as the '80s to the best of my memory. There's nothing new there. It's not any different than those who call folks who have abortions "baby killers". But let's leave the abortion slander and/or debate to another thread shall we?

    No, the people did NOT elect him to make dumbassed Foreign Policy decisions that would enable the spread Islamo-Facism.

    I always feel sorry for those who cannot look beyond skin color. Those who are racist will never understand truths, only their ignorance.

    No, he is President because he was voted by America to be President. No matter how much you wish to make this an issue of race because he's black, it will never change the truth.

    just as in those you just suggested, that any criticism, or even a lack of support, was racist.
    I did no such thing. But when someone claims a person is only in a position because his skin is black, that's a racist comment.

    I tend not to read your posts unless they're directed at me. You're just not that interesting though I try to be polite.
    Then why would you reply to a comment which was directed to someone else?

    You're not making any sense. If you want an answer to your question, read the posts which generated my post. If you're not intelligent enough to do so, then you'll just have to live with the disappointment.

    That said he did tell the truth, people should not hijack religion or use it as a weapon..
    So when Mohammed was running roughshod over the Middle East subjecting non-Muslims to terror campaigns of conquest was he hijacking the religion or founding it?

It's no wonder we have the issues we have with the lack of critical thinkers.
    Obama has policies other then appeasing Islamic terrorism and Russia's designs on Ukraine?

    When Europe was running roughshod all over the world subjecting non-Christians to terror campaigns were they hijacking Christianity?

    Neither did they elect him to kiss Saudi Arabia's and Israel's ass.
