Jay Carney vs. Franklin Graham

Earlier this week, before Obama's birth certificate was released, his Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked about comments Franklin Graham made in an interview with ABC's Christiane Amanpour.

The Q and A was as follows:

Carney: Yes, David. Last one.

Q: Thanks, Jay. Another religious question. Yesterday, Franklin Graham said that the President has some issues to deal with when it comes to proving he was born in the United States. And last month the Reverend Graham said also, “The Muslim Brotherhood is very strong and active in our country. It’s infiltrated every level of our government,” meaning your administration.

So I want to know if the White House is concerned that a top religious figure is making charges of this nature about the President and his administration.

Carney: David, I would just say I think it’s unfortunate that a religious leader would choose Easter Sunday to make preposterous charges. And I’ll leave it at that.

Now, for Mr. Graham's side. You can watch the interview with Christiane Amanpour, here.

And, read a very interesting follow-up interview with Christianity Today done yesterday, here.

Face it Jay. Nobama has more issues surrounding him the Time Magazine.

Why did it take all this time to produce the Long Form Birth Certificate. The Citizens of the U.S. have a right to see a presidential Candidates Birth Certificate since Citizenship is a requirement to be President.

So what waht was his game? To Snub The American Citizens; we surely don't need a President with that type of attitude or did he need time to have a Forgery made?

Then there are 2 issues I personnaly have no knowledge of being finalized.

1. Moving to Indonesia, where they do not recognize Dual Citizenship, which would have required him to give up his U.S. Citizenship, assuming his Grammer School records were Authentic. If so then did he renew his U.S. Citizenship when he returned to the U.S. and became of legal age?

2. did he receive financial aid as a foreign studenet when attending college as Barry Santoro, as accusations had been made?

The level of malice manifested in the comments by the Lion of Zion, the stubborn refusal to face facts and the malicious questions that continue to be raised by people like him/her about the current President of the USA are inexcusable for anyone professing the name of Jesus Christ. Perhaps Lion of Zion is more impressed by the profanity-laced speech given by Donald Trump today than he is by the speech given by President Obama last week at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast. If so, then that's truly a spiritual tragedy!

Apparently, due to little more than sheer malice against President Obama, some Christians on this site would rather have Donald Trump, despite his outsized ego, serial marriages, blatant materialism and foul mouth. The Holy Spirit must be grieving.
