Could Obama be a secret muslim?
I am sorry for the title of this topic. I do not know if he is muslim and suggesting it equals suggesting that he is a liar. But that's the point. Obama said that he was never a muslim and there is no reason not to believe him. But if you paint him as a muslim, you scare people who do not like the muslim faith AND imply that Obama lied to the american people.
Considering the current state of the economy and the lost credibility due to the ad-war, the republicans should now be even more desperate than before. And it could be effective. Obama looks a little bit arabic, 10-15 % of Americans believe it already and Obama made in one Interview a gaffe. He said "my muslim faith" and didn't realize it, till Stephanopolous corrected him ("you mean, your christian faith"). In the context of the interview, it is quite clear that he meant his not existing muslim faith. But you know. It is not very hard to take it out of context and put it in a TV-ad. The only thing that could stop them, would be ABC I guess?
1.) When do you think will it happen? (yeah, I think it will happen... would be the only logical follow-up to McCains smear-campaign)
2.) How do you think will it happen? (Anonymously/Approved by McCain/TV-ads/Radio-ads/even on stage?)
3.) How could Obama react effectively? (Has McCain said on air, that he thinks that Obama is a christian?)
4.) How many people do you think would believe it (additionally to the 10-15% who already do)?
