Obamadan: The President’s Islamic Perception Problem

In Obamarama on 19/08/2010 at 18:37

Editor’s Note: Many of my articles now appear on Associated Content.  My series on my twenty-year friendship with avant-garde rocker Captain Beefheart is receiving international attention.  Please drop by and check out the articles. Incidentally, I am also welcoming new friends on my Facebook page.

The folks at the Washington Post were up bright and early this morning stirring up trouble for conservative bloggers. Today we are responsible because 1 in 5 Americans now believe that Barack Obama is a Muslim, and that only 34 percent “now correctly identify” the President as a Christian.

Being the right-wing nut job that I am, I feel obligated to comment.

Since taking office in January of 2009, the President has yet to attend one National Day of Prayer service. He is yet to identify or attend a house of worship in the Capitol. The excuse White House media surgical team gives for the latter is that the President doesn’t want to be a distraction. They took that from Ronald Reagan’s playbook in the 1980s.

This from the same Barack Obama who thinks nothing of jamming traffic in Manhattan every time Michelle wants her hair processed or her nails done; this from a president who has created more leisure time for himself than Sergey Brin has since he made his first billion.

Barack Obama loves being a distraction.

The Post continues to enlighten the brainless masses:

White House officials expressed dismay over the poll results. Faith adviser Joshua DuBois blamed “misinformation campaigns” by the president’s opponents. “While the president has been diligent and personally committed to his own Christian faith, there’s certainly folks who are intent on spreading falsehoods about the president and his values and beliefs,” DuBois said.

One marvels at the cluelessness of this White House. Mr. Dubois—who had to break off the Post interview for the Call to Prayer—is convinced that the public’s perception of the President as a Muslim is the result of vast right wing conspiracy?

Could it be that the American people are wondering why, when this President invents more reasons than Dennis the Menace to play hooky from Sunday school, he has not yet missed a Ramadan celebration?

Since he has taken office President Obama has had the mother of all international perception problems and his White House seems at a total loss to understand why.

The Presidency is—and this may come as a shock to Mr. Obama—a leadership position, and leaders lead. Yes, presidents make vital decisions that effect Americans and even the world as a whole, but the biggest part of being the Leader of the Free World is how the public at large see their president.

Barack Obama is a dilettante. He hasn’t the slightest idea of what it means to be the president of the greatest nation ever known on the face of the earth, and it shows every time he ignores the public will.

I’ll admit to having in recent days wondered if I may have been wrong about Obama’s devotion to Islam; the man seems to go out of his way to identify with this backward cult. But Barack Obama is not a Muslim; he is an elitist. He truly believes that the American people are too stupid to see him for what he is and always has been.

This President has consistently aligned himself with the most radical thinkers and organizations of our time. He has a vastly different worldview than most Americans, even many who call themselves liberals.

In short, Barack Hussein Obama is out of touch.

He has openly embraced Islam in the White House while shunning any pretense of being the Christian he claims to be. His comments regarding the Ground Zero Mosque demonstrate a complete insensitivity to the mothers, fathers and other loved ones who have lost family and friends in this war, not to mention 9-11.

Barack Obama’s perception problem is one of his own making.
