Right-to-left: Barack Obama and Maya Soetoro w...

There are so many things a reasonable person can criticize President Obama for doing/believing. But there are some things that just make you look stupid. Like the “9/11 Truthers” before them, the “Birthers” are a disgrace, especially to us on the right wing. Obama is an American citizen. Get over it. If there was any real evidence to the contrary, there would have been serious lawsuits years ago. Like any bogus conspiracy theory, there are kernels of truth that keep it going. So they will never be satisfied until his original birth certificate is produced by the state of Hawaii. Even then, I can just hear the charge of “forgery!”…it’s never ending.  Obama IS: a citizen. Is NOT: an illegal immigrant from Kenya/Indonesia serving illegitimately as President.

Then the other big one is Obama’s choice of religion. I make it a policy as a Christian never EVER to doubt a person’s Christianity. If they say Jesus is Lord, they are a Christian.  See 1Cor. 12:3 – no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. Now there are Christians of every stripe and persuasion – most left wing Christians see their duty to spread the Gospel as “social justice programs” – that’s fine. I would disagree with my fellow Christians on many topics of theology and politics but that doesn’t in any way invalidate their Christianity. Obama is clearly misguided, but a Muslim he is not. I always took him at his word, never for a moment did I believe otherwise. No Muslim would EVER say, for example, “It was through that experience working with pastors and laypeople trying to heal the wounds of hurting neighborhoods that I came to know Jesus Christ for myself and embrace Him as my lord and savior”. Obama IS: a Christian. Is NOT: a Muslim.

By all means, criticize him for the myriad reasons he deserves. Not the ignorant ones above. It just gives the Progressives ammunition to deceive the masses about the “idiot right wingers”. Don’t be like them and spread lies about our President (see entire Bush administration). We need to defeat him, on the Facts.  And they are on our side.
