Just come out and say it, already!

The video in which Pollster Frank Luntz asks the audience in De Moines, Iowa if they believe the President of the United States is a Muslim shouldn't surprise anyone who's heard this nonsense before, but listening to some of the responses the small audience give are just astounding.

Of all the comments made during the near-3 1/2 minute clip, the following comment pissed me off the most:

"I think he believes that America is at fault for all the world's problems. I think he doesn't see the good that America has done in the world."

What utter BS!!! Obama has, many times, referred to his background, being born to a white mother and a black father from Kenya, how his mother and white grandparents raised him, and how his rise in the modern political landscape and said that nowhere else on earth is his story possible but in America. In almost every major speech, Obama has referred to America's defining moments - from beating Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan and emerging as the world's superpower, to Dr. King and the Civil Right Movement and the moon landing in '69, after JFK challenged the nation to put a man on the moon in a decade's time. How in the hell do you get off saying some incredible crap like that!?

And let's cut the "he's a Muslim", and "he sympathizes with Islam" catch-phrases, and get right down to the heart of the matter: you don't like the President because he's not the right skin color. Words like "Muslim sympathizer", "socialist" etc., are just code words for what these ignorant men and women really want to say aloud: I'm not comfortable with that n****r in the White House.
