Where were you when I needed you... this afternoon when I was being blasted for even daring to suggest....?
Link seems to be bad.
Link worked for me.
Hmmm. NOW it works!
I am blast proof. They can try to blast me but it blasts back.

To err is human
Being forced to shoot from the hip with too little sleep might be his problem. A nice long session in horizontal position should fix that. No, I don't mean in a non-breathing state either.
I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt...
Given the context...
"Let's not play games," he said. "What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you're absolutely right that that has not come."
But what a stupid slip.
See if this link works/
Even more evidence to me that
not only do both radical sides of the aisles in Washington need to be cleared but a reworking of press as well. If they want to continue their monopoly as an information source, they need to just present the whole of it and let us do the analysis ourselves.
Good clarification of what was said
OK, I can buy that.
Given the plethora of oratory blunders that he has had.
English is his second language?
It was an awkward statement ...
I don't believe I would make that particular slip, but when you look at the context of the interview I think it is pretty clear that what Obama meant to say is that Mr. McCain is not talking about Mr. Obama's alleged Muslim faith.
The quote from the article says:
"What I was suggesting - you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. ..."
In this context they were discussing the fact that, although some Republican sympathizers have suggested that Mr. Obama is in fact a Muslim, Mr. McCain has not made those allegations. I don't see how anybody could fairly interpret that as a Freudian slip.
I would interpret this is "my alleged muslim faith" or "my socalled muslim faith".
Let's say that I said that c1ay or EdH are gay (I don't know them so I don't know that, of course, just an example). Then c1ay or EdH might say (when being asked) something like "It's absolutely true Kees talked about my being gay". If I then wrote that was a Freudian slip, that proved that I was right, I think they would be angry and asked for the post to be removed.
It's fully understandable somebody would forget the "alleged" in an interview (maybe not in a carefully corrected written piece). That goes for me and c1ay and EdH and Mr. Obama. It's not more than dirty campaigning to suggest otherwise. But, then, that's getting normal on this forum, alas.
I don' t think he intended "alleged"...
That would be awkward even for him. He just made a silly mistake.
But, then, that's getting normal on this forum, alas.
Oh, really? Don't think so. Got any examples?
Our own media will do such
They will create a "report" and then say something like "It's been reported that.....". Not exactly a lie but a deliberate attempt to create a story where none could otherwise exist.
You really gotta want it, Bill.
Am I just being obtuse? I don't have a clue what you meant.
I think what he means is
that in order to have it mean what anyone wants it to mean, you have to want it to mean that.
Kind of like how the Democrats want all the lies about George Bush to be true.
May be like...
It may be like Humpty Dumpty explaining the meaning of "glory" to Alice.
Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. "Of course you don't --till I tell you.".
Makes sense to me....
if sense can be made of it.
In order to see it the way
people are misinterpreting it you have to go into your judgment with an extreme leaning against Obama.
Which people ?
Not many it appears are taking it out of context, are they?
Rush Limbaugh quote being taken out of context.
in a nutshell!
I can't agree.
I've thought on it for days and just can't find it an acceptable "slip of the tongue" as it's being passed off. Just today I was thinking of the years I lived in Greece, even learning enough of the language to converse with them. In spite of that, at no time did I EVER, even by accident say, "when I was a Greek..."
not common at all
never would I mistakenly call my faith muslim
I might if I had been accused for as long as he has been
...... that I was a muslim because it would be on my mind a lot more than the average Christian.
And there are still some who still believe that he is a muslim, thus have pounced on this when they would have let it pass if anyone else had said it.
BTW, I don't know if they think the same of all converts to Christianity from other faiths- that former Buddhists remain Buddhists, former atheists remain atheists , etc. If so, "preaching the Gospel" means nothing. Or do they claim a specially anointed "direct line" to the Lord that tells them who is faking?
