Considering he appears to be the only branch taking action (right or wrong) on behalf of those unable to purchase government favors, you could show that as a good thing too ;)

rj - "Apparently Beck didn't bother to actually read the link in his article.

Thank you for your response and I tend to agree with you after reading Obama's entire speech. I would advise that everyone does and see if there is anything he actually said, in context, that you could disagree with. I don't like or care for Obama, however, after reading the entirety of his speech, I can't disagree with anything stated. Are they 100% his words or those of one or many of his writers? I don't know, however, the concept communicated I can't disagree with and that may be a first for me. I do know many peace loving Muslims and there is an extreme element that are evil and do evil things and those do need to be rooted out. Perhaps they need to vet their Koran much the same as the Bible could be vetted of many of it's evil stories and practices that do not promote peaceful living. I'm not converted to Democrat, however I have no problem with what he communicated and promoted.........

Perhaps you didn't read your own link?

From your link, "The treaty was broken in 1801 by the Pasha of Tripoli over President Thomas Jefferson's refusal to submit to the Pasha's demands for increased payments. In the course of negotiating with the Barbary nations, each of the Barbary rulers continuously demanded increased payments to maintain peace, even while occasionally capturing U.S. ships."

So that's what the Blaze calls "taking apart" Obama's claim?

According to David Barton: "The first Muslims came to America as a result of the Muslims capturing them and sending them to the Dutch traders." The Dutch slave trade was active in Africa from about 1660 to 1760. So according to David Barton, some number of slaves in America during colonial times were Muslims. Just because these people were slaves doesn't mean that they weren't part of "The Fabric of Our Country Since Its Founding".

Historian David Barton Takes Apart Obama’s Claim That ‘Islam Has Been Woven Into the Fabric of Our Country Since Its Founding’

“In all the reading I’ve done, thousands of books, there’s nothing there,” Barton said on Friday. “I mean, we know that Muslims were the folks who captured the slaves sent to America, largely out of Africa. … The Muslims did the slave hunting and the slave trading, et cetera. The first Muslims came to America as a result of the Muslims capturing them and sending them to the Dutch traders.”

Barton said that beyond their heavy involvement in the slave trade, America was at war with the Barbary pirates shortly after the founding of the country, but those were “the two biggest contributions.”

The "Myth" is that of one Barack 0bama's intelligence and education. People seem to think he is "smart" because he went to Ivy League schools. But since his educational records have never been released, we really don't know, do we? Based on the decisions he makes and the flippant off-the-cuff remarks he makes on many subjects, which later turn out to be highly erroneous, I refuse to go along with the Myth.

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker did not finish college - he left during his senior year, reportedly 34 credit hours short of a degree. (That's an entire academic year) We base our opinions of Walker based on his record as a legislator and Governor. We should base our opinions of 0bama likewise. And I remain highly unimpressed with the POTUS.

It sounds like he wants us to repeat the Japanese internment camps of WWII, except he wants to fill them with Muslims.

His website is also full of junk ads, many of which get complaints from my browser security for having invalid certificates.

Same could be said of President Obama and how he views world history. He says we will destroy/degrade ISIS/ISIL. What will ISIS/ISIL accomplish in that time frame before they're destroyed. Want a good example of that? Nazi Germany, the Allies were able to defeat the Nazis but look at the cost paid by the Jews and Russians.
