Consider the President's heritage

Reader comment on item: The One-Minute Guide to Obama's Foreign Policy

I thought for a moment that you were about to make the point I espouse so often. I can understand this president of mine so succinctly with just the understanding that he is (or was reared Muslim).

To clarify the point, imagine yourself born into a Catholic family. At about 35 or 40 years old you desire, for what ever reason, to convert to become a Baptist. You know full well that all the years of indoctrination of Catholicism would influence ever movement, decision and thought for the rest of your life.

Our president is a pro-Palestinian sympathizer, anti Israeli, anti American, anti capitalist, etc. He hides it fairly well overall and indeed, yes, he is a brilliant man and politician.

If you think (no I am not a wacko) of this thought each time he makes a decision contrary to what you would have liked, I believe you will find merit in this analysis.

Thank you so much for the great contributions your writing make in our world. Be well.

James,Tx.
