I rarely watch the broadcast networks any more Terry, so I can't speak to their bias. (it seems that all broadcast network news is any more is just a platform to tell you the news for 3 minutes & then sell you Viagra, Incontenace pills, etc for 20 minutes! :mad:

To my way of thinking, bias is OK as long as both sides are presented & you get to pick what you want to hear/see. (Just like newspapers: if you are liberal you read the N.Y. Times...If you are conservative you read the Wall Street Journal)

No problem!

Yeah, yeah, and 23% of Texas voters polled the 3rd week of October believed Obama was a Muslim. :roll:

Lessee, would Obama have carried Texas too if the people there weren't so stupid?

Must be 'cause of all that "liberal media coverage" down in Texas. :rofl:

C'mon, boyz, even John McCain famously hosed down the crazy old lady who thought that. :hammer:

So why don't you make some headlines here, boyz? What proof do you have?

On page 154 of “Dreams From My Father,” Obama writes:

“In Indonesia, I had spent two years at a Muslim school, two years at a Catholic school. In the Muslim school, the teacher wrote to tell my mother that I made faces during the Koranic studies.”

And on page 204 of “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama has a slightly different recollection, writing:

“During the five years that we would live with my stepfather in Indonesia, I was sent first to a neighborhood Catholic school and then to a predominantly Muslim school.”

I didn't say he is a muslim, I said he was a muslim.

So the obvious inference is that he's Al Quieda, right?

I'm with Colin Powell on this. He's not, but so what if he were?

And, in fact, it might be better to have somebody who actually understands Islam, for a change.
