This is no more than another example of how RACIST closed minded Americans, once again, prove just how ignorant they can be. Racism is alive and well in this country. What does a person's religion matter? Was not this country supposedly created based on religious freedom? Obama is a qualified candidate and because no one wants to admit that they would rather have ANYONE but a Black man running this country, they spout this "He's a MUSLIM!" ...

Why don't some of you educate yourselves on what Islam really is and then find another argument to support your racist tirades. Then maybe you can argue the point that he's tall or he has big ears or maybe he walks by putting one foot in front of the other. "Oh my God! He walks upright! He can't be president!..but wait...so do I"
