Mayor Attacks Obama On Facebook

By Robert Paul Reyes

"President Barack Obama is Christian, but don`t tell that to Arlington`s mayor.

The small town mayor is under fire for what he wrote about the President online. Mayor Russell Wiseman called President Obama a Muslim on his Facebook page, attacked Obama supporters, and said the President`s prime time address on Tuesday was an effort to block the Christian message of `A Charlie Brown Christmas`.",0,7860692.story

It`s not just teen girls who post crazy messages on Twitter or Facebook that they later regret. The mayor of Arlington has made his town a laughingstock.

It may have been politically unwise for President Obama to schedule his prime time address at the same time that "A Charlie Brown Christmas" was being aired, but that`s hardly proof that he`s a Muslim.

As Charlie Brown would say "Good Grief", let`s not make a mountain out of a mole hill. Obama should be criticized for sending more troops to Afghanistan, not for preempting the Charlie Brown Christmas special.

Obama isn`t a Muslim, he`s been a practicing Christian for decades, and I`m sure that Muslims also love Charlie Brown.
