Both when Obama ran against Hillary and when he ran against McCain. The only thing I can compare it to is when OJ was cleared of the Murder charge, but still found responsible for their deaths in a Civil court.

The media and Obama told America what was important to them and rather than think for themselves, the majority of Americans voted for the least experienced, most rhetorical “Politician” of modern times. Who clearly knew more about the political views of his Mentor for 20 years than he was willing to admit to… making Obama a LIAR with Little or no Conscious.

Where was the media’s focus on what it required to be schooled in Indonesia when Obama was a student? – Absent because the requirement was you had to be Muslim to attend school during the period he was enrolled.

People, including myself were tired of Bush and wanted change, but I did not sacrifice my principles to vote for an out-and-out LIAR, which was Obama’s response to every CRISIS that fell upon him during his candidacy – and America may likely have to pay for turning their eyes, but so far he seems to be surrounding himself with a Cabinet that just may save us yet.

Quite the “Typical” POLITICIAN playing to the SOLD-OUT MEDIA Audience…

That’s quite normal since even religious people can forget almost all about religion when they are engulfed in such economic woes we’re facing right now. Example, a devout Muslim woman has recently written on her blog :”Putting my faith into everyday practice has been difficult. How can I strengthen my faith if I have been lacking it? How did I achieve this once newly found faith that was encouraging and positive? Was it a process I went through? I have reached a very low point in my faith. Yes, there are tests in life and greater than others but what I have yet to figure out is why are these tests an interruption of a person’s personal faith. It is like adding more weight to a scale until it reaches its capacity or like pouring a glass of water and it overflows without any direction. Has there ever been a time when you have doubted your faith?”
