Thumbs down Obama says New Yorker insulted Muslim Americans

Quote:
CHICAGO - Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday that the New Yorker magazine's satirical cover depicting him and his wife as flag-burning, fist-bumping radicals doesn't bother him but that it was an insult to Muslim Americans.
So, Nobama claims to be a Christian? Me thinks that might not be the truth! Besides, Nobama never met a statement/position that he couldn't convert to his own use, no matter the "tweaking" necessary to do so! The Muslims/Islamics have CAIR (Council on Islamic Relations) to spew their hate rhetoric, they don't need Nobama in their corner!

...and if he said "it doesnt offend Muslims" you would say just the opposite and bash him for not defending them

A little off topic here, but if you are either born in America, or have become an American citizen, aren't you essentially an "American?"

I've never gotten the terms "African-American", "Irish-American", etc., especially when it describes a person who has never even stepped foot in the country from which their ancestors emigrated.

Sorry for the interruption...carry on!

Excuse me!!! Please don't put thoughts in my head that are not there! I have no use for Nobama, Muslims or the Islamic religion! This is just another example of Nobama and his boot lickers pandering to the Muslims/Islamics and the Black voters that they represent! Next time, please let me do the thinking for me!

Huh? Why in the world would "you thinks" he's not a Christian, just because he feels something may have offended Muslims? I'm Agnostic...does that mean if I defend Romney against anti-Mormon remarks, that I am Mormon and not Agnostic? What ridiculous nonsense that is, which you try to pass as logic. Any argument you may have had, lost all credibility the moment you wrote that.
