    President Obama, on Tuesday you will speak to the United Nations about the growing turmoil in the Middle East. If you behave true to form, you will reiterate what you and other members of your administration have been saying for years, that Islam is a beautiful religion of peace.
    Mr. Obama, please stop.
    The policy of praising Islam in the wake of every act of radical violence has not worked. We see this in opinion polls showing the United States is more hated in the Muslim world than ever. We see this in the growing power of extreme Islamists throughout the region. We have seen the impact of this policy of obsequiousness in the growing national security nightmare the Middle East has become. We have seen it in the charred, bloodstained ruins of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. We have seen it at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, where the American flag was desecrated and replaced with the black banner of jihad. In response, you thought it was appropriate to thank Egypt’s president Mohamed Morsi for protecting the embassy, rather than threaten to cut off relations with Egypt for obviously failing to do so.

    It reminds me of GWB praising his idiot Michael Brown of FEMA for doing a good job during the Katrina debacle. Wishful thinking, detached from reality. I guess that's what happens when you vote in an imbecile to be president.

    Bush was trying to keep hillbillies from killing innocent Muslims in the U.S. after 9-11 (and maintain the friendship and flow of oil from Saudi Arabia). In one case, a man killed an Indian Sikh with a turban on his head, because he thought he looked Muslim. The nation is largely past the homicidal rage inspired by 9-11, and Obama has already soured the relationship with Saudi Arabia with his weakness in Syria (and we don't need Saudi oil as much with fracking available). I think we are at the point that a president can condemn an act of terrorism without defending the terrorist's religion. It weakens the message. "Terrorism is bad" is a much stronger and clearer message than "Terrorism is bad, but Islam is good".

    Can you cons stop insulting Obama over things you said nothing about when Bush did them for once?
