I think there are many extremely uncomfortable with that. Over the past weeks I have heard so many who claim that they think Obama is a nice guy and they like that he is young and charismatic but many forget that this is not a popularity contest in middle school.

In the end it really doesn't matter who will win the election as both will fail to tackle the problems. One candidate will do less harm than the other in one area while the other will do less harm in another area and the overall situation four years after the election will be worse than it is today.

She makes a great point without even using the words 'racism' or 'bigotry'.

I wish Bush was a muslim. Then 5 times a day he would have to stop screwing up the country and pray.

I used to work for a muslim american owned business. The owner and the top staff were all muslim. They were nice, fair and hard working. I admit that having them getting on the floor and praying a couple times a day took getting used to. The office was small so there wasn't any place for them to go.
