The President, as we have seen, is very “thin-skinned”. He does not take well to criticism (He won’t do FOX because they aren’t nice to him), and he does not like being questioned (I won, you lost). Yesterday in his choreographed appearance with the Democrats, he urged us to stop watching TV (cable news like FOX or CNN we suppose) and to stop blogging! (oops).
Today, he sopke at the National Prayer Breakfast. In his humbleness, he commented that he is not perfect, a point that he says Michelle can testify to. He then went on to say that it is one thing to question his policies, but to question his Faith…………..pause…………….”or my Citizenship” is wrong. The crowd laughed, but it was another example of his contempt for those who question him.
No, his faith should not be questioned, except that he has shown an allegiance to those of the Muslim faith, moreso than any other. His “faith” that he shared with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright is a faith that intermixes God with the angry rhetoric that spewed from Wright’s pulpit, and he embraced that faith for 20 years. Going back to the Muslim ties, I do not believe that Obama is a Muslim, but when John Kennedy was running for President, his Catholic faith was questioned because many thought he could become a puppet for the Vatican. That would be the concern emanating from Obama’s allegience to the Muslims. (And his perpetual bowing is not helping).
The fact that he brouight up his citizenship himself acknowledges, in my opinion, that he knows that he has handled this situation improperly. He must realize that the lack of transparency on that one issue alone has fostered the continuing and growing questioning. I have heard his citizenship mentioned on “Face the Nation” and “Meet the Press” several times recently, by his leftist surrogates, said with sarcasm to an extent, but said in such a manner is to insinuate that even some diehards like Donna Brazile think the issue is not going away.
I did appreciate his reference to Britain’s Sir William Wilberforce, who fought the system to abolish the English slave trade. I have asked repeatedly, who will be our “Willliam Wilberforce”?
UPDATE: The video of his “civility” remarks has appeared on YouTube:
