Oh-Oh, One Out of Five Americans Think Obama is a Muslim



You will recall during the campaign, Team Obama was doing any and every thing to dispel the notion that The Won was a Muslim. They were quite effective at squashing the notion.  However, since getting into office, the notion of Obama being a Muslim is starting to take root.

In a new Pew Research Poll, the number of Americans who think Obama is a Muslim is now on the rise.  
A substantial and growing number of Americans say that Barack Obama is a Muslim, while the proportion saying he is a Christian has declined. More than a year and a half into his presidency, a plurality of the public says they do not know what religion Obama follows.
A new national survey by the Pew Research Center finds that nearly one-in-five Americans (18%) now say Obama is a Muslim, up from 11% in March 2009. Only about one-third of adults (34%) say Obama is a Christian, down sharply from 48% in 2009. Fully 43% say they do not know what Obama’s religion is. The survey was completed in early August, before Obama’s recent comments about the proposed construction of a mosque near the site of the former World Trade Center.  [MORE] 
Of course many on the left are saying these numbers reflect the effectiveness of the Right Wing Smear Machine.  I say nonsense. Obama himself has fueled these numbers with his own actions by showing more than just a little deference to the Muslim world.  For example:

These are just a few examples. The Right Wing Smear Machine did not make them up. Obama himself chose to do all of these things and each feeds into the idea that he is a Muslim.

Despite continually bending over backwards for the Muslim world, it appears that Obama has gained diddle squat for it from Muslims. In the very same poll, Pew Research finds that among the various religious groups, Obama gets the smallest approval from Muslims.

With results like that, one has to wonder Obama continues to believe that giving extreme deference to Muslims is a winning strategy. Unless of course he is doing it because he really is a …. Things that make you go, humm?

A friend on Facebook commented today, "Does it really matter whether Obama is Christian or Muslim? Let it go people." My response to that is yes, it does matter because 1) It means he has lied about being Christian to the American public and 2) his loyalties may lie elsewhere than what he has stated. If he had been upfront about being Muslim from the get-go (if he is in fact Muslim) there is a significant chance he wouldn't have been elected President given our nation's recent history with radical Muslim extremists. So yes, friend, it does matter.

The poll should have included "Atheist, Agnostic, or Secular Humanist"

The growth in the number of people who "Don't Know" is the most disturbing part of the poll.

There is definitely a problem and I think it lies in the fact that most people feel less and less comfortable with the convenient narrative cooked up by Obama in order to sell him to the American public during the election.

If things were going well, it would not be noticed. Now that they aren't people are beginning to wonder, "Hey, who is this guy anyway?"

Obama and his media cronies continue rolling around in the stench. First, Islam is NOT a violent religion responsible for deaths around the world but the Chosen One is really not among its adherents because that is political suicide. And to make it plain, Obama has distanced himself from the race-baiting preacher. Then, Obama cowers to Islam at every turn.
Talk about torpedoing one's image.
