Did Barack wear a chim-chim hat?

So what if he was taught some muslim beliefs, clearly he is as American as hotdogs. I think that having a sound and solid religious background that covers many different religions creates a basis of understanding and credible knowledge of how differing cultures and peoples think! I love spin because they are created from lies and therein there is deniability when they get busted. Spin or leaks are purposely created to start confusion, sound bites on the national news broadcasts, and give talk show radio hosts plenty of gruel to munch on.

All the wars that were ever fought were fought over territory and religion, sprinkle in a few woman and there you have it. If having experience is another prerequisite for running for president maybe I could be president because right now we have a president that was a cheerleader, he defrauded a large bank in Texas and had the shareholders and taxpayer pick up the tab, and oh yea lets not forget, he defended our country during his air national guard service as a deferment from daddy to keep him out of Viet Nam.

Hopefully the next leader of our country, no matter whom it is, shall reinstitute the draft, without deferments of any kind..................so they will think twice about sending their own children in harms way!
