Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Simply put, how, where, with whom you grow up means a lot about becoming an American. Learning the simple things of America (maybe that is why he doesn't put his hand on his heart during the star spangled banner like I did in elementary school).

Growing up in America matters.

Was Barrack Hussein Obama a Muslim? Maybe, maybe not. I do know that he did not grow up the USA. I want 100% American. Summer vacation, Santa Claus, all of the American hopes and dreams of childhood.
