One in Ten Americans Think Obama’s Muslim

posted by dgilgoff

obama30.jpgThere’s been some squawking from the chattering classes about the challenge this presents Obama, but God-o-Meter is shocked that so few Americans hold the mistaken belief that Obama is Muslim, given the virulence of the false rumor campaign against him. Consider that other recent polls have shown that:
28-percent of Americans think “Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.” 14-percent are unsure.
26-percent of Americans believe that the American government “knew the 9/11 attacks were coming but consciously let them proceed for various political, military, and economic motives.”
23-percent of Americans say they have actually seen a ghost or believe they have been in one’s presence.
Take heart, Obama.

“One in Ten Americans Think Obama’s Muslim”
That just goes to show how very ignorant, uninformed, uneducated and stoopid 10% of Americans are.

How many people believe that the war in Iraq was because of Bin Laden?

A rhetorical Question: How come so many people believe in Ghosts and UFO’s but don’t believe in the visitation of Saints or the gifts of the Holy Spirit?

Shame to you so-called Christians who are filled with hate. Americans, this is your chance to get America healed or cry for many years. We better humble ourselves and vote for this man whether we like his color or not. God is behind him. That’s all!!!

Obama is the best choice. Most American still believes in Santa clause ands the Easter bunny.

Anyone who wants Socialism in America, please go ahead and vote for Obama.
Having experience with Socialism – even moderate levels – let me tell you, it sucks! America doesn’t need any more of it than it already has.
Less would be good!
