he is allowing a mosque to be built close to the former site of the world trade centre? well if thats not disrespectful to the memory of the victims I don't know what is, I'm all for freedom of religion but come on? think ya dumbass!

It could be perceived as very disrespectful toward the families and friends of those that died in the 9/11 attack, seeing as the terrorists acted based on Islamic faith. Sure, only a portion of Muslims are extremists, but I'd think it to be common courtesy not to build a mosque to practice the very religion that killed masses of people on that soil. Hell, I wouldn't build anything there, if only out of respect, but that's really going to hurt people.

How could someone who preaches as much socialism as he does make 4.2 million a year and live with themselves? For god sakes if you think money should be shared, then share it obama!

No dear boy, you're confusing being *called* a socialist with actually *being* a socialist. If he was half of what FOX said he was, he'd be a radical muslim commie from Kenya.

i doubt he left the a stag party when stripper attended thats probably just him covering his ass politically styling himself
and i doubt his favourite dish is his wifes shrimp languini however again its likely politically styling
though i got to respect that he collects comic books he admits to doing drugs without trying the to justify ' but i didnt inhale ' every one at some point experiments with drugs its one of the great learning experience in life
