in response to reader comment: If obama's biological father is Muslim and his stepfather was muslim and his mother was an atheist...

How many white Kansas born Bible-belt females by chance would marry two Muslim men back to back, further, two foreign Muslim men back to back, and they themselves are atheist? What are the stats on that one? What was swirling around in a Kansas born mind such as that? Why do we not know more about her ideology and that of his fathers?

We are all products of our parents (DNA) and the environments of which we were nurtured, but we know very little about the true influences on the next President except for his memoirs and eloquence? Let's see: Muslim father, Muslim step father, and atheist mother and somehow all of this did not influence his life or at least it is not important?

But Obama himself is a Christian you say? Obama has been groomed for political office since before he hit those ivory halls by some inward and outward forces of what? How did he manage to get selected by Harvard? The brightest of our students have less than a sliver of a chance? Seriously who has answered these questions of ideology, real faith and/or lack thereof? Did his background of Muslim, Muslim, atheist and eloquence get him into Harvard by giving those liberal minded interviewers of elitedom what they wanted to hear?

He organizes to get the votes he will later need to be elected to public office; he recognizes that he must adopt some type of religion to be accepted so of course you adopt the religion of the majority. Certainly an atheist or Muslim would not do. Is every thing he does in life a means to an end to gain power and recognition for self?

Two memoirs of self before age 50? What are the stats on that one? Especially some one that has done little in comparison to others that feel fit to have a recorded memoir. Memoirs allow you to use the media to define who you are to people instead of the people deciding who you are. I'm not saying he is a Muslim, or that it even matters, but he must be one confused individual in the area of religion and identity: Muslim Kenyan father, Muslim Indonesian step father, atheist Kansas mother, now Christian pro-abortion Great American Chicagoan? I know that he confuses me much more than any of the other politicos and his love by the liberal media and Hollywood and those Muslim brothers that want to kill us Americans is a real sticking point for me. Hmmmm
