Obama's verbal slip fuels his critics
Christina Bellantoni (Contact)
Sunday, September 7, 2008


ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Sen. Barack Obama's foes seized Sunday upon a brief slip of the tongue, when the Democratic presidential nominee was outlining his Christianity but accidentally said, "my Muslim faith."
The three words -- immediately corrected -- were during an exchange with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," when he was trying to criticize the quiet smear campaign suggesting he is a Muslim.
But illustrating the difficulty of preventing false rumors about his faith from spreading, anti-Obama groups within one hour of the interview had sliced it out of context and were sending it around via email. They also were blogging about it.
Mr. Obama, who is a Christian and often proudly speaks about how his faith has influenced his public service, said he finds it "deeply offensive" that there are efforts "coming out of the Republican camp to suggest that perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith."

Oops...Whew, I'm sure glad we're not taping right now...Um...What do you mean "we ARE on tape'?? Oh Crap...This probably won't turn out well, will it? Hey..Lemme order pizza for you and the crew..Yes, a whole buncha of pizza for you and the crew with perhaps, let's say...$100 bill toppings...Mmmmmmm..lots and lots of hundred dollar bill toppings....very tasty hundred dollar bills...*pause*..Gimme that tape dammit!!  (source)

Keep slipping like this genius and it will be hard to ignore that you might actually be telling the truth when you say "perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith."

A Freudian slip perhaps?? I'm thinking probably not..Nonetheless...One running for POTUS is usually only allowed slip ups like this only once or twice during an election. Especially when your campaign is fighting this very rumor... (You're not helping at all Barak..)  wacko.gif

He might not wear a flag on his lapel but I have a feeling you will be seeing a cross or two in his advertisements beginning about tomorrow.

/how bad of a mistake is this?? and can it be beaten for sheer bad luck and/or timing? or could it have been an actual Freudian slip?

Ah well, he's a politician. You can't expect him to tell the truth about anything.

Maybe he is really a Muslim in his heart.
I understand he has Muslims in his family, so could be he just thinks he is not a muslim.

He's a muslim. And he's a chirstian when it helps with polls. Why do you thing he flops around so much. Like he used Hilary to get more votes.

Oh, for god's sake, it was a slip of the tongue - especially when you consider that he had just been talking about people trying to slander him as a muslim. This is why I dislike so much of the electronic media out there today; one little thing like this and they go into full rat**** mode.

Here come the apologists.

Beware, if he loses, he may retaliate by strapping bombs to a couple of 'special' sisters and taking out a strip mall.

*Snip * -  If I were to say that if McCain lost he'd have a total temper tantrum and shoot everyone in his office, you'd probably get indignant.

That would be too funny.

I think there is NO evidence that he is in any way a practicing Muslim. It's propaganda by the ignorant, for the ignorant. It certainly will NOT change anyones vote, making outrageous claims and deliberately misquoting/misinterpreting.

Everyone slips some time or another.  It doesn't matter who you are. Most of the time when we do it's because it's on our mind. He's sliped before like when he said "he visited all 27 states except for 1 it was either Hawaii or Alaska".

You say you hate Republicans but do you honestly like the government controlling everything you have.  That's why I'll never vote Democrap.

At least it was a slip.

McCain wasn't slipping when he called his wife a Trollop and a C*nt.

Wonder how long it will take him to call Palin a few sexist disgusting names.

"Just a slip." I like that. I know in conversations I always seem to slip and call my faith 'muslim', y'know, 'cause for some reason or 50, I'm labeled as one.

Infidels.

Anyway, I tend to think it's a Freudian slip.
