    Think Progress: Obama Should Not Have To “Bible Thump on C-SPAN”

    Think Progress: Obama Should Not Have To “Bible Thump on C-SPAN”

    Amanda Terkel, one of the lead writers at Think Progress, is exasperated that the “right-wing” has convinced the “media” that Obama’s religion is open to question (emphasis mine):

    While journalists and pundits on cable news today did acknowledge the “media” have had a role to play, they also seemed to place some of the blame on Obama and his staff, saying that perhaps the President should go to church more frequently and more openly to show the public that he truly is Christian….First of all, Obama should not have to be bible-thumping on C-SPAN every Sunday in order to prove how Christian he is. Second of all, the poll leaves out a very important source of this misinformation: the irresponsible right wing.

    What we have here really is a failure to communicate.  The image-keepers at Think Progress and at the White House do not seem to understand that Obama’s failure to connect has nothing to do with bible-thumping on C-SPAN or not.

    No one really knows who Obama is, because almost everything we know about Obama prior to his entering public life comes from Obama alone.

    Obama has so carefully controlled his image that he has achieved the opposite effect.

    i write out my thoughts here.

    http://allergic2bull.blogspot.com/2010/08/on-confusion-about-obamas-religion.html

    and my basic thought is this. You know it all makes me think of a bit of dialogue from south park. the four friends are in the hall, and Eric Cartman is trying to convince the rest of them that 9-11 was a conspiracy.

    Cartman: Kyle, why are you so afraid of the truth?!
    Kyle: Because anybody who thinks 9/11 was a conspiracy is a retard!
    Cartman: Oh really? Well did you know that over one-fourth of people in America think that 9/11 was a conspiracy? Are you saying that one-fourth of Americans are retards?
    Kyle: Yes. I'm saying one-fourth of Americans are retards.
    Stan: Yeah, at least one-fourth.
    Kyle: Let's take a test sample: There's four of us, you're a retard, that's one-fourth.

    so 1/4 of people think that obama is a muslim. 1/4 also don't know that we rebelled against Britain, and 6% of those don't even know we had a revolution. So there you go.

    george: I am not a birther and consider that line of attack a waste of time but you are wrong to say that Obama's birth certificate and school records have been public record for years. That is just not true. Obama has and continues to block access to most of his official information.

    If all of this info is public, why then is Obama paying lawyers millions of dollars to block access?

    Links please.

    George,

    Are you a paid troll or is it just your hobby to share misinformation?

    http://www.eduinreview.com/blog/2008/10/barack-obamas-gpa-and-college-records/

    There are plenty of other places to look, but if you're not really looking, whatever contradicts your world view won't register, even if it has a million citations.

    ZOMG!! Oh noes!! not the eduinreview BLOG! now there is a factual source, George! and a Wikipaedia link as well!

    Now, please excuse me while I go laugh myself silly.
