  1. I weep for the expensive, dysfunctional public education system in this country.

    You know the one where the teacher’s unions refuse to make any concessions on benefits and pay despite a down economy. The same teachers unions that fight to not include quality and outcomes in determination of who is fit to teach and cling tenaciously to a tenure system that is antiquated.

    The same system that is focused on sex education and indoctrination of students on a variety of issues rather than focusing on reading, writing and math.

    Why if we applied the same world wide cost effectiveness comparison of the quality of our education system that was used to justify health care reform people should be marching in the streets demanding that we undergo dramatic education reform to improve quality and control cost.

    I guess it’s too bad that physicians didn’t see the writing on the wall and unionize years ago.

    Oh yes. I weep.

  2. Maybe we should hope that the rest of the world (particularly the Islamic world) is just as confused!

    As the son of the Muslim father, Senator Obama was born a Muslim under Muslim law as it is universally understood. It makes no difference that, as Senator Obama has written, his father said he renounced his religion. Likewise, under Muslim law based on the Koran his mother’s Christian background is irrelevant.

    Of course, as most Americans understand it, Senator Obama is not a Muslim. He chose to become a Christian, and indeed has written convincingly to explain how he arrived at his choice and how important his Christian faith is to him.

    His conversion, however, was a crime in Muslim eyes; it is “irtidad” or “ridda,” usually translated from the Arabic as “apostasy,” but with connotations of rebellion and treason. Indeed, it is the worst of all crimes that a Muslim can commit, worse than murder (which the victim’s family may choose to forgive).

  3. I agree, but according to the NYT it matters to Islamists across the sea.

  4. the dude abides

    The White House says Mr. Obama prays daily, sometimes in person or over the telephone with a small circle of Christian pastors. One of them, the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, who was also a spiritual adviser to former President George W. Bush, telephoned a reporter on Wednesday, at the White House’s behest. He said he was surprised that the number of Americans who say Mr. Obama is Muslim is growing.

    “I must say,” Mr. Caldwell said, “never in the history of modern-day presidential politics has a president confessed his faith in the Lord, and folks basically call him a liar.”

    Unfortunately, nowadays people believe what they want to believe, not what’s true. The impatient, scattered, 24hr news cycle has given people this false sense that “they know what’s really going on”, or that they know more than true experts.

    Sad.

  5. I got a laugh out of one of the replies to this story that I saw on another news site;

    “1 out of 5 think he’s a Muslim and the other 4 out of the 5 think those people are inbred.”

  6. It occurs to me that the real reason that the liberal talking heads love stories like this, the 9-11 mosque, etc. is because they are desperate to avoid stories like this:

  7. and this:

    The economy faces even more difficult times ahead with chronic unemployment and slow manufacturing hurting the recovery, the head of Congress’ budget agency said on Thursday.

    The warning from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office came on top of more bad economic data that heightened concerns about a return to recession and sent markets roiling. It could also spell trouble for Democrats facing November elections.

    The CBO forecast the U.S. budget deficit will hit $1.342 trillion this year, down slightly from its March projection of $1.368 trillion.

    It attributed most of the $27 billion change in its fiscal 2010 deficit projection to an estimated $50 billion reduction in the cost of TARP, the U.S. government’s bailout of financial institutions in 2009.

    But the figures show that without significant changes in U.S. tax and spending laws, the government will struggle to dig its way out of a deep fiscal deficit hole.

  8. and this:

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/08/19/air-military-strike-delay-stop-irans-nuclear-program-officials-say/

    As Iran, with Russia’s help, gets ready to flip the switch on its first nuclear reactor, Washington is engaged in a frenzied debate over whether Israel should consider launching an air attack designed to cripple Tehran’s nuclear capabilities.

    But key military officials and analysts say Iran has already passed the point where a strike would deal its entire nuclear program a fatal blow. The country might be persuaded to abandon any efforts to build a bomb, they say, but — like it or not — Iran is going nuclear. And no number of Israeli F-16s is going to change that.

    “We can’t stop it. We can slow it down,” Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., a member of the House Armed Services and Intelligence committees, told FoxNews.com.

  9. it must be ever so exhasting to constantly have to defend someone who at every turn makes half the nation sit up and go huh?and the other half go , oh it’s nothing really,lets just move on!! so yep the country as a whole is very confused…problem is….the dems think it’s the rep. who are and the rep. think it’s the dems who are!…i think it’s both sides that are confused and the media keeps us all that way.
