Islam needs a pope

And it looks like our own Barack H. Obama is arrogating to himself that role.
The White House’s continued support for traditionalist Islam is drawing new criticism. ”The Obama White House is now a propaganda center for what Earnest described as ‘peaceful’ Islam,” said a Jan. 9 statement from Newt Gingrich.

“This is either madness or cowardice,” he added. ”It could be madness because President Obama and his team are so out of touch with reality that they see themselves as the definers of a 1,500-year-old religion.”
Birds of a feather. It is no surprise that a “citizen of the world” who
(a) is begrudgingly a native of the U.S., (b) was radicalized early in life by association with Marxists, anti-colonialist radicals and the odd 60’s terrorist, and (c) carries an unearned racial chip on his shoulder should find himself, temperamentally and intellectually, drawn to people and belief systems that are at odds with the traditions and culture of his own country. That such a person should ever have become president is obviously a calamity, and it is a calamity that was easily foreseen by anyone who wasn’t blinded by all the fabulism that attended the critical stages of his political ascendancy.

Saddam Hussein wanted to be Caliph. Obama wouldn't last a day in that company.

Well, why wouldn't Obama be qualified to define Islam for Muslims? After all, he's a better speech writer than his speech writers, he's better at policy than his policy advisers, why the man is a God with perfectly creased pants.
