and an answer back to Junaid...

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?
in response to reader comment: Response to Simon's reply

Submitted by Simon (United States), Mar 5, 2008 at 01:32

Hello Junaid…do you mind if I call you by your first name only? I don't believe anybody or at least on the conservative right used his racial background as an issue. As a matter of fact it's the left who champions that they are color blind and cross all color lines. If that is the case Hillary should take one for the team bow out and let Obama be the first black viable candidate for the Democratic Party and possibly the President.

As far as his Islamic background goes or lack there of it was the Hillary's camp who first exposed Obama's Muslim heritage. Now you didn't answer my question. What does a man in an empty suit who speaks in platitude and trite makes you think he can run the most powerful country in history? Give me some meat Junaid, and yes, as much as you have the right to your opinion, so do I.
