Here is something amazing we have not witnessed in modern political memory; Republicans apologizing for a smear attempt on a Democrat.
Seriously. How afraid are they of running against this guy?
The Republican National Committee put out a press release showing Barack in flowing white robes. To a lot of the ignorant Americans out there, wearing anything that looks like that says you’re a Muslim.
Muslim = terrorist. Barack Hussein Obama! You just know he is a Muslim terrorist with a name like that and look at what he is wearing!
The press release included this statement “…growing chorus of Americans concerned about the future of the nation of Israel…if Sen. Barack Hussein Obama is elected president of the United States.”
When was the last time you heard any other politicians middle named used?
Hell, when was the last time any one old, white and Christian gave a damn about Jews?
I can just picture a smoke filled room somewhere in the basement of the white House where a bunch of guys sat around and decided to put aside their own anti-Semitic feelings and use it as a way to bring down a black man on the rise. But they got caught. By their own people!
The press release now includes a clarification that reads: "This release originally referenced a photo of Sen. Obama and incorrectly termed it to be “Muslim” garb. It is, in fact, Somali tribal garb; hence, we have deleted the photo. Also, in order to diffuse attempts by Democrats and the Left to divert attention from the main point of this release — that Sen. Obama has surrounded himself with advisers and received endorsements from people who are anti-Semitic and anti-Israel — we have deleted the use of Barack Obama’s middle name."
Wow! You see whats going on here? The Republicans usual tactic of hit & run is leaving a foul taste in the mouths of their own people. It is such a childish and stupid thing to pull off. It insults their party members more than anyone else. Because what was the thinking here? We will show him in what the typical uneducated American thinks of as Muslim wear, always use his full name because it includes the name of a former enemy and then incorrectly identify what he is wearing as Arab garb.
So this is what they have on Obama so far.
He is not patriotic enough because he doesn’t wear a flag pin.
He is not patriotic enough because he didn’t put his hand on his heart when the Star Spangled Banner was sung. FYI, you don’t have too. It’s the pledge of allegiance that you are supposed to do that for.
His middle name is Hussein.
