Canadian Point of View

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by TJ (Canada), Jul 21, 2008 at 15:47

Living in Canada to bring up the fact or falsehood of ones practiced Religion during a Federal election and base your vote on this is so not right.

I have read a few of the comments but not all. The men running for President are both v ery quailifed to serve and manage the office of the President..

The fact we are in a war that will linger on a few more years no matter who is in office.

is also not a good reason to sway a vote to the promised end to it.

Take a hardcore look at energy, jobs, human rights, defense and your dollar .

The engine of your Country.

These are much more important then who is in what religion, remember the President cannot do much without Congress and support. You may fear the Executive Decision or Veto right of the President.

I am sure these two men would not do their Country wrong in that regard.

The big picture in your vote would I hope be looking at the running mate of the candidate.

This man or woman could be the one to fear and over looked. Like President Lyndon Baines Johnson

He kept your Country in war years longer knowing JFK wanted to end it.
