    “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

    In February of 2008 our "dear leader" told us that the Muslim call to prayer was “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

    During the first "Arab Spring" our "dear leader" showed us the correct way to overthrow corrupt and tyrannical governments through his policy of leading from behind, and the MSM (ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, etc.) covered every second of those heroic acts by freedom loving people.

    Now that our Muslim brothers have had an opportunity to live under the heals of the boots of dictators sanctioned by our "dear leader" and his minions, and a new "Arab Spring" is being spawned in places like Tahrir Square, the focus of the MSM appears to have wondered to more important topics like the latest revelations from the hit show "Big Brother" or the lack of DNA on this or that object in the George Zimmerman trial.

    Hey the MSM could have a point; they covered the first "Arab Spring" 24/7, what could be so different about the second one? Move on nothing to report here.

    Yes my friends I am sure that it will be a long time before you will get to see the visuals or hear interviews from freedom loving folks who are participating in this new "Arab Spring".

    Further, I believe it will be a long time coming before the MSM reports on the average Egyptian citizen's feelings regarding our "dear leader" and his ambassador Ms. Paterson.

    Yes our "dear leader" was right, the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

      That's true, I have heard it in my travels, man's single call to his creator, his unique awareness and thought of a power beyond our understanding, that makes us different than all other creatures. Not referring to any specific religion, or lack thereof of course, it is indeed very beautiful to hear on a quiet evening. If Obama did actually say that in 2008, how true, as always he is.

      Of course you only think it means he is a Muslim, which is completely a distortion of what he was saying. Besides, even though Obama is a Christian, and a fine example of one, being Muslim is allowed in America, says so in the Constitution. I thought the tea party was for the Constitution.

    • Well! Well! Well! If nothing else our "dear leader" is consistent in his support of the Muslim Brotherhood and its continued rule of countries within the middle east.

      Even after the people in Egypt had the unmitigated gall to overthrow the tyrants of the Muslim Brotherhood, our "dear leader" took the opportunity (as reported on Bloomberg on July 5, 2013) to say a few words of support for his friends in Cairo:

      "The Obama administration’s call for an “inclusive” political process in Egypt with a role for the Muslim Brotherhood has been overshadowed by deadly clashes between security forces and supporters of the Islamist group."

      "While President Barack Obama’s administration has stopped short of condemning the July 3 military takeover, it has called on Egyptian leaders to pursue “a transparent political process that is inclusive of all parties and groups,” including “avoiding any arbitrary arrests of Mursi and his supporters,” Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, said July 4 in a statement. "

      Well! Well! Well! It should be infinitely clear now to anyone who has ears to hear, our "dear leader" is only happy with a tyrannical dictator when the tyrannical dictator is one of his choosing.

      Yes our "dear leader" was right, the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”

      "In your heart you know he is right."

      • ...“Well! Well! Well!...our ‘dear leader’ is consistent in his support of the Muslim Brotherhood…”

        And so, the frog boy continues to blather nonsense about the President with more attempts to discredit him by editing the stories he reads.

        Hey, gremlin…is there a reason you left this part of that story out?…

        “President Barack Obama ‘condemned the ongoing violence across Egypt and expressed concern over the continued political polarization,’ according to a statement issued yesterday by the White House. ‘He reiterated that the United States is not aligned with, and does not support any particular Egyptian political party or group.’

        Secretary of State John Kerry said in a separate statement yesterday that ‘we firmly reject the unfounded and false claims by some in Egypt that the United States supports the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood or any specific Egyptian political party or movement’.”

        What part of that statement don’t you understand, froggie? You are an intentional liar fooling absolutely no one. You pathetic people are so obviously desperate that you can do nothing but lie to people. How sad. Nice life you lead.

        In your heart you know you really need to be more honest with people, Gremlin.

    • If you're interested in the actual event then I suggest you change the channel. The events in Egypt are being covered extensively on PBS, NPR, the BBC and plenty of other news sources.

      If you're interested in the life cycle of a news story, there are plenty of sources out there.

      If you're interested in pushing some sort of Obama/media conspiracy story or trying to (yet again) push the idea that Obama is somehow controlling things in Egypt or that the internal politics of Egypt are somehow reflective of some Obama failure to install the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, then you are simply uninteresting.

    • ...“…our ‘dear leader’ told us that the Muslim call to prayer was ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’ – frog boy

      Froggie – are you seriously trying to pass along Rush Limbaugh’s interpretation of Nicholas Kristof’s article? If so, why don’t you say what the article actually said, and not Limbaugh’s goofy attempt to turn it into something else…you are such a tool of the right, unwittingly or not (although you’ve proven consistently to be an intentional liar.)

      Obama: Man of the World
      New York Times, by Nicholas Kristof (‘07, btw)

      “The conventional wisdom about Barack Obama is that he’s smart and charismatic but so inexperienced that we should feel jittery about him in the Oval Office. But that view is myopic. In some respects, Mr. Obama is far more experienced than other presidential candidates.” (Note, frogboy – “myopic” – that describes you to a T.)…

      “…In foreign policy as well, Mr. Obama would bring to the White House an important experience that most other candidates lack: he has actually lived abroad. He spent four years as a child in Indonesia and attended schools in the Indonesian language… Mr. Obama recalled the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer, reciting them with a first-rate accent. In a remark that seemed delightfully uncalculated…it’ll give Alabama voters heart attacks…”(folks like frog boy), “Mr. Obama described the call to prayer as ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset’…

      …Our biggest mistake since World War II has been a lack of sensitivity to other people’s nationalism, from Vietnam to Iraq. Perhaps as a result of his background, Mr. Obama has been unusually sensitive to such issues and to the need to project respect rather than arrogance. He has consistently shown great instincts.

      So, granted, Mr. Obama lacks the extensive experience at top levels of diplomacy of, say, V. P. Cheney or ... oh, never mind. What sets Mr. Obama apart is the way his training has been at the grass-roots rather than in the treetops. And that may be the richest kind of background of all, yielding not just experience, but also wisdom.”

      Once again, froggie, your sordid interpretation of events proves exactly what the article says…you clowns are arrogant, insensitive and try repeatedly to intentionally deceive the public because you have nothing else of value to contribute.

      “…or do what you normally do… respond with another alias, you cowardly phony.” – echo2165

      And, frogboy, “In your heart you know he’s right.”
