WaPo’s interview with possible GOP presidential candidate Scott Walker raises eyebrows for cheap shot and shoddy journalism — Walker answers spontaneously and honestly – “I DON’T KNOW...” – to question about Obama's religious beliefs
For most right-thinking and fully informed people, that would be a correct answer — For others, including me, Obama is clearly a crypto-Muslim – and his personal history and disclosed records indicate that he probably is a Muslim or had been one earlier in his life*
For many good reasons, based on what Barack Hussein Obama has done and said recently, The Washington Post did ask the right question — but the WaPo asked it for all the wrong reasons
Also, by asking Scott Walker about Obama's religious beliefs, Dan Balz and his sidekick were really asking the wrong person. — Since The Washington Post now recognizes that President Barack Obama’s status and reputation as a Christian is a proper question for general media inquiry, shouldn’t Dan Balz and Robert Costa have put that question rightly and forcefully to Obama himself ?
The Washington Post article by Dan Balz and another reporter opens like this: “Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a prospective Republican presidential contender, said Saturday he does not know whether President Obama is a Christian. *** ‘I don’t know,’ Walker said in an interview at the JW Marriott hotel in Washington, where he was attending the winter meeting of the National Governors Association. *** Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion....” ( See “Gov. Scott Walker: ‘I don’t know’ whether Obama is a Christian” by Dan Balz and Robert Costa, 2/21/15, The Washington Post [http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/walker-says-he-is-unaware-whether-obama-is-a-christian/2015/02/21/6fde0bd0-ba17-11e4-bc30-a4e75503948a_story.html]).
For those who think that Governor Walker might have mis-spoken, the Balz-Costa article makes it clear that Walker did not make any mistakes; as is indicated by the following passages from the article: “Told that Obama has frequently spoken publicly about his Christian faith, Walker maintained that he was not aware of the president’s religion. *** ‘I’ve actually never talked about it or I haven’t read about that,” Walker said, his voice calm and firm. “I’ve never asked him that,’ he added. ‘You’ve asked me to make statements about people that I haven’t had a conversation with about that. How [could] I say if I know either of you are a Christian?’...”
The WaPo article’s closing paragraph was this: “Some figures on the right have consistently questioned Obama’s faith, with some suggesting that he is a Muslim. Obama, however, has often talked about his Christian faith, as he did recently at the National Prayer Breakfast....” From that one would reasonably conclude that neither Dan Balz nor Robert Costa ever asked Barack Hussein Obama whether he is a Christian. That would be a relevant and appropriate question; in other words, it would be quite pertinent and in no way impertinent.
However, don’t expect any pointed questioning of this President about this by any in the MSM, nearly “least of all” at the WaPo. A proper inquisition as to these closely held matters of belief, religious affiliation and/or association will come only from the precincts of the right and/or other non-Democrat, non-Obama apologists. After all, Obama has lied to the American people about so many other things; and historically many have posed as Christians, often for survival, but also for expediency and political advantage. That’s why tough questions still need to be asked of this president; and they should be pressed repeatedly and forcefully. Sort of like a cross-examination, but more-so like a "Third Degree."
