    Poll Shows Nearly 20% of Americans think Obama is Muslim

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Anyone who would repeatedly and willingly sit in Jeremiah Wright's church and listen to that spewed gutteral hatred, week after week, could not possibly believe in anything worth believing in.

    And assuming Obama really attended that Church week after week, and didn't just go there every once in a while.
    Reality tends to have a liberal bias.

    If only someone would conduct a study that would ask people whether they thought Obama was a Muslim and then cross-reference that by their various affiliations, breaking it down in excruciating detail...

    Honestly this is the way I look at it, I wouldn't say people are stupid just misinformed no matter what the religion. Look at the guy's name for God sakes. It's very spicy and with just a hint of hummus. If his name was Barry Harold Orville do you think anyone would think he was Muslim at all? While I am just going to make assumptions like the rest of you here is mine: there are two kinds of people that believe he is muslim, the ones that are generally just misinformed and only really follow politics around election time (if that) and then the ones that are informed but are just generally on the fringe.

    LOL, you'll defend anything. "God Damn America!!" I guess if you only say it once, it's okay.

    I'd bet "Jesus" is a rare topic in that tax-free hate shelter.

    Do you know what an appeal to emotion is?
