All it takes is a bit of objectivity and desire for "meat" behind the "deceit"; hopefully, Americans will catch on.

I wonder if the relative silence from Muslims reflects a "crossing of the fingers" on their behalf that Obama wins the Presidency.

Something tells me they would overlook his interim "apostacy" and welcome him with open arms.
