  • Now see I wouldnt really have issue with this IF Obama had of truely recognized National Prayer Day.He distanced himself from it though.As well as having symbols covered while he spoke at Notre Dame and things..but he gives a five minute speech on Ramadan.

  • LMAO! Whatever. You people. Of course he extends holiday wishes, Ramadan starts tomorrow here is the US, many US Citizens are Muslim. I remember Bush doing the same thing. You all are trying to make a big deal out of nothing.

  • I don't think this is bad. Sure, you could have a good time with it and all that with all the conspiracy theories, but it was culturally appropriate. No big for me.
    He's smoked a little too much Buddha If he thinks he's going to be able to work out peace between Israel and Palestine. Both sides believe that it is prophesied that they win.
