Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
in response to reader comment: Obama's apostasy WILL matter, and probably matters already.

What United States president hasn't been under the threat of assasination? Apostacy may be levied upon obama but so long as the secret service does their jobs correctly, he won't have to worry too much about that. as for the possibility that he might be blackmailed or threatened by islamic terrorists. that pretty much comes with the job of being the president of the united states.

has there been a president in the last 20 years (other than clinton who was an ass-kissing, spineless lowlife, whose decisions were governed by his wife and the polls) that wasn't hated by the islamic religion. and what, precisely, do you mean when you say that his whole family will be vulnerable like that of no other US president? these are some really rediculous arguments.

I'm pretty certain that if obama felt that his family's lives were in danger, he would probably have them moved to a bunker of some sort. you will notice that no US president has ever been assasinated when the secret service was at an elevated state of alert. they all got shot when they were out in the open at a public event. i somehow doubt that obama is going to issue an order to kill or capture osama bin laden while he's sitting in an open car in a parade.
