"Fight The Smear" Campaign

Rumors riding piggyback on emails continue flying about Obama's past. The latest is a supposed video of Michelle using the "whitey" word - - which doesn't bother me. I've been called much worse. Riding the circuit again is the "Is he a Muslim?" rumor/question. Seems the Obama camp has (finally)caught on and is attempting a squelch for ongoing rumblings via website "Fight The Smears."

Justifiably and in all fairness his staff has taken the proactive response as words continue scrawling across computer screens. For those of fair-minded spirit that would like to read rebuttals, here it is: http://my.barackobama.com/page/content/fightthesmearshome/

Since Obama is campaigning for leader of the free world it is expected that his personal life be opened by the public. It's the associated generalizations and connotations, the constant witch hunt for absolutely any askew "a, and, or the" which is troubling.

Perhaps if scrutinizers had fished out their secret decoder rings and magnifiers pre-Bush, they would have found more fertile ground in the President's lack of foreign policy academia - - more than can certainly be found digging around through a candidate's church videos, a spousal college thesis, and book clips.

Let's play fair. What are the BIG issues, the ones demanding the gastric bypass?

Senator Obama is NOT a Dirty Muslim!

"What you won't hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge," says Mr. Obama, while denouncing statements of him being a Muslim as a smear. Why is the presidential candidate who claims to be religiously inclusive is treating the word "Muslim" as an insult? Apparently, it is OK for Mr. Obama to be associated with terrorists like William Ayers or racists like Jeremiah Wright, but God forbid somebody would call him a Muslim! No, he won't stand for that kind of smear! We admit that most terrorists are Muslims, but most Muslims are not terrorists and the statement on Mr. Obama's website is insulting to hundreds of millions of people.

How could a man who discards his family heritage in favor of political expediency be even considered for presidency of the United States? Where are all the so-called "Islamic civil rights groups" like CAIR, MPAC, ISNA, MAS, etc. who are quick to defend every Islamic terrorist, but are silent when Muslims in general are being denigrated? Would Mr. Obama have the same reaction if someone claimed that he was raised as a Jew? We sincerely doubt that.

Muslims Against Sharia demand immediate removal of "SMEAR: Barack Obama is a Muslim" statement from the official Barack Obama's website as well as an apology for giving the word "Muslim" a negative connotation.
