Why Can't A Muslim Be President?
Well thank God someone finally said it in public!
Colin Powell: on the campaign of lies, spread by whisper and e-mail, to convince people that Obama is a Muslim:
"Well, the correct answer is, he is not a Muslim, he's a Christian. He's always been a Christian. But the really right answer is, what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer's no, that's not America. Is there something wrong with some 7-year-old Muslim-American kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion, 'He's a Muslim and might be associated with terrorists.' This is not the way we should be doing it in America."

The Obama campaign itself has been too chicken to make this point. They always just respond to the claim that Obama is a Muslim, by saying, "It's a lie. He's a good Christian [just like all good Americans.]"
This is just one reason I continue to be underwhelmed by Obama. He only looks so good, because the alternative is so bad.
