Default Not just an idiot-a dangerous idiot. Obama again.

More brilliance from the mouth of the Dali Obama:

It is important to note that "if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world".

It is stupifying what comes out of this man's mouth and his amazing ignorance.

UPDATE: The excellent Don Surber crunches the numbers and points out that Obama's claim is highly dubious. According to Surber, the US has an estimated three to eight million Muslims, less than one per cent of the world's total and less than at least 23 other countries.

The average claim for the US Muslim population is about six million. The precise figure is difficult to get because it's not included in US census data and many put the figure at much, much less.

But even if we assume there are six million Muslims in the US, that makes it only the 34th biggest Muslim country in the world - behind Indonesia, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt, Iran, Nigeria, China, Ethiopia, Algeria, Morocco, Afghanistan, Sudan, Iraq, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Tanzania, Syria, Malaysia, Niger, Senegal, Ghana, Tunisia, Somalia, Guinea, Kenya, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Burkina Faso and Tajikistan.

UPDATE 2: Debbie Schlussel cites a reputable survey by Pew that puts the number of Muslims in the US at 1.8 million. This would make it the 48th biggest Muslim country, after the above list plus France, Libya, Jordan, Israel, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Kyrgyzstan, Mauritania, Germany, Kuwait, Oman, Eritrea, Lebanon and Serbia and Montenegro - and just above Britain, which would be the 50th.

Obama is on the "American's suck- would you please be friends with me" tour. Jimmy Carter and Barry are just alike. We just can't be the coolest place to live in the world without apologizing for it. The Dumbmasses are just like that Russian editorial said- sheeple!

He's trying to improve relationships with the Muslim world; that's probably why he said it. So it's a stupid, or more likely, political thing to say. But what makes it D A N G E R O U S?!?! Isn't that a bit overboard?

Appeasement of any people is dangerous. These people don't want to and don't have to believe we like them. The "Ruler's" of the muslim world would rather kill us than debate us. Political correctness and appeasement will only be seen has having us off our game. That's why it's dangerous.
GW may have been the one that got sucked into the mess we're in, but all the planning happened when Clinton was in office. It's clear that the Muslim world didn't think we had the stones to fight back when all this was in the planing stage. Now Barry is kissing muslim ass- this will only lead to bad things. Barry doesn't have the same stones and that crazy b@stard GW did. We look weak and Barry is not helping right now.

He is dangerously ignorant about history.

remember the old doomed to repeat it line?

Funny, when Bush said stupid things he was just stupid. Obama is brilliant when he says stupid things. Amazing.

Speeches are just pretty songs that no one takes very seriously except for a handful of idiots. Politicians give speeches all the time, but turn around and then do something else. Like when Obama says he isn't running GM and then goes back into the Oval Office and continues to run GM. No one except a handful of Americans take anything he says seriously.

His speech was just a pretty song. No one will take it very seriously because he has proven his false nature. Only certain westerners are under his spell.

Kinda like those Guiness guys on the commercials (think thick British accent):

Obama: "The U.S. is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. If we could get them to see that, maybe they would stop hating us."

Media: "Brilliant!"

Reminds me of the old line 'I would rather be hated for what I am, than loved for what I am not."

Sorry, I can't comment on anything to do with Islam - every time I do so, it gets moderated-away; as I "don't know enough about the Muslim World to have an informed opinion, you Ignorant, Misogynistic, Homophobic, Racist Bigot". Or something ****ing stupid like that. She'd probably come back just to put the clamp on my post.





So, has anyone heard from B-BAR lately? Is he busy, sick, dead - what?

I hope he's just enjoying riding-around too much to give a shyte about MO.
