Obama Informs World We’re Not At War With Islam

Via  Atlas Shrugs:

Addressing Turkey’s parliament on his first visit to a Muslim nation as President, Barack Obama reached out to followers of Islam everywhere. “Let me say this as clearly as I can: the United States is not and will never be at war with Islam,” he said, to applause. “In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical in rolling back a fringe ideology that people of all faiths reject.” Obama said the U.S. has been enriched by Muslim Americans, including members of his own family.

Note that he didn’t say, “is not, nor has it ever been…” which would have fit better, in my opinion. His choice of words were inapt because the U.S. never has been at war with Islam, as Bush made clear on many occasions.

Obama could have taken this opportunity in front of a Muslim audience to clear up  any misconceptions  people in that corner of the world have had on that score. But instead, he had to get in another one of his passive aggressive little digs on former President Bush.

The United States was at war with Islamofascism, hence the “global war on terror” phrase which has been put to bed by the Obama administration, and replaced with the absurd “overseas contingency operation”. Terrorists has of course been replaced with “man made disasters”.

Because, apparently, by pretending that there’s no such thing as Islamic terrorism,  it will magically go away, with the receding oceans.

Related….More discussion of this on The O’Reilly Factor, but first Morris comments on the Obama/ACORN campaign finance fraud case. Dick Morris has been on some kind of roll, lately.

Did the NYT’s shitcan this story to protect Obama? Ummm….yes? Duh…

Did the Obama campaign commit fraud with Acorn? Sure looks like it.

Conservative blogs were screaming up and down the right wing blogosphere about Obama’s campaign finance fraud, last year…but does the general public listen to us? Noooooooo. Will people care, now?
