    If this was Bush the left would be calling him a “religion fanatic.”

    Via CNS News:

    "Obama is a godless Muslim."

    Has now morphed into.

    "If Bush talked about god so much he would be crucified."

    Please get talking points organized.

    Never called him a Godless muslim.

    I think it is the acting administration which has trouble with talking points.

    If he used it to justify policy, probably true. If he used scripture during a time of memorial - something every other President has done too - probably not. Context matters, despite your desire to ignore it.

    It's unfortunate that religion is so prevalent and suffocating in this country that our politicians are forced to talk like that and/or that we only elect religious people for higher office.

    That being said, you're reaching here. While this is a disappointing and frankly, morally disgusting statement, it's par for the course for every politician.

    Was Obama called a Muslim for 4 years after being elected?

    There are polls out there from that time period showing quite a few Republicans believed that Obama was a Muslim from Kenya.

    Don't you have something better to do, perhaps throw your coffee at a homeless person or protest an abortion clinic?

    He said:

    This doesn't just affect a memorial service. This has bearings on all he does. He recognizes that he is an instrument of God's will.

    If I said something like that, I would never hear the end of it.

    But because he said it, you gulp it down with the rest of the kool-aid you were told to drink and ask for more, and all you have to do is excuse it because he said it on a Sunday, he had to say it.

    I would appreciate it if you never try to define me again.

    I have never called Obama a muslim. I was clueless on the whole birther craziness until I heard a family member say it one day. I said he was crazy and that Obama's mom was American.

    I also don't drink coffee, I volunteer assisting homeless shelters, and even spent last Christmas feeding homeless in downtown Houston. I disagree with abortion personally but I also understand why people do it.

    Keep drinking the Kool-aid, because it is getting hot outside.

    Obama cannot catch a break for being sympathetic, nor can he catch a break when he tries to pass humane policies that the "right" block time and time again.

    Half of the country simply wants this man to fail, not because of his political ideologies, but because of who he is as an individual.

    It's tiring.

    To put Bush and Obama in the same context is offensive on so many levels...

    They have both been President of the United States.

    So offensive!

    That's what Obama said, you might want to ask him.

    Ask President Obama

    if you are unable (or more likely unwilling) to take context into consideration that is your problem - no one elses. as major said, had this quote been pulled from a speech regarding policy i think you would have a point. but it isn't - it's from a memorial speech.

    use your brain.

    So memorial speeches don't give anyone insight into what a politician thinks?

    Memorial speeches are usually more personal and have more personal opinions than a policy speech which is well edited.

    Keep drinking the Kool-Aid.

    When you stop trying to define me and other posters on here, then I will stop trying to define you.

    If you were clueless concerning the whole birther madness then you are either insincere or were extremely naive.

    Glad that you spent last Christmas feeding homeless people, it will help you grow as a person. Perhaps you should reconsider some of your political positions.

    "if this was Bush...

    the left would..."

    I thought it was time to stop bringing up Bush?

    I look forward to OP's direct response to keep his thread on life support.

    I was naive at the time. I voted for Obama in 2008 and didn't even realize what some were saying until a family member told me after the election. The birther thing is stupid.

    Which of those do you purpose?

    We both know that people will always bring up the past. I find it hilarious that this is something that makes some Libs now God-fearing people.
