Perhaps Bloomberg wants to be considered for Vice-President by Obama and should that fail, he can always revert back to his "Republican" persona and try for the VP spot with McCain.

NEW YORK (AFP) - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg urged Jewish voters on Friday to reject false rumors disseminated on the Internet that White House hopeful Barack Obama is a secret Muslim.

"Let's call those rumors what they are: lies," he said during a breakfast meeting with the Jewish community in south Florida. "They are cloaked in concern for Israel, but the real concern is about partisan politics."

The billionaire media mogul, who is Jewish, is a former Democrat who ran for mayor as a Republican and became an independent last year.
"Israel is just being used as a pawn, which is not that surprising, since some people are willing to stoop to any level to win an election," Bloomberg told the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County.

[NOTE: Once a Schmuck, always a Schmuck]

"These demagogues are hoping to exploit the political differences between the Jewish and Muslim people to spread fear and mistrust," he [Bloomberg] said.

[NOTE: Ignorant Schmuck!]

"This is wedge politics at its worst, and we've got to reject it loudly, clearly, and unequivocally."

[NOTE: Schmuck!]

[REPEAT: Once a Schmuck, always a Schmuck]

[Why? Listen: "These demagogues are hoping to exploit the political differences between the Jewish and Muslim people to spread fear and mistrust," [Bloomberg] said.]

The Obama automaton moves on, with its hollow preachy phrasings delivered in the rich voice of an empty-headed orator.

The Soviet-style heroic Obama, the use of a single word "Hope," do make the SEPTA bus shelter posters a bit reminiscent of George Orwell's "1984."

Substitute "OBEY" for "HOPE" and you got what we're all facing

Oh, and look at the "half'truths" here:

"That's why I passed laws moving people from welfare to work ..."--Barack Obama, in his first post-primary TV ad.

Obama: ". . . I passed laws moving people from welfare to work, . . . "
from "Obama for America" Ad: "Country I Love"

About which Mickey Kaus of "kausfiles: A mostly political Weblog" has this to say:

Obama . . . tout[s] his legislative accomplishments, and those claims don't stand up as well under scrutiny. In order to establish his bona fides as a politician who cares about working families, Obama cites his success with three relevant bills. But he doesn't mention that two of the three pieces of legislation were actually passed by the Illinois Senate, not the U.S. Senate. Obama's campaign tells us that when he says, "I passed laws moving people from welfare to work," he is referring to the bill that created Illinois’ Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program in 1997. Obama was one of five original sponsors of the bill, which set limits on public assistance and required welfare recipients to outline plans for moving into the workforce. The law that "cut taxes for working families" is a 2000 bill, on which Obama and 35 others were later added as cosponsors, instituting an earned income-tax credit for the state. Both bills affected only Illinois residents.
from Obama's "Mission Accomplished"

As to the "Mission Accomplished,"

kausfiles has this to say:

Is Obama's new faux-presidential, alternative-reality seal his "Mission Accomplished"? If you wanted to emphasize to voters that the Democrats' nominee is a bit stuck up, it would be hard to do better. I suppose he could start requiring reporters to stand when he enters the room. ... The seal probably started out as a bit of fun. But unless David Axelrod is insane, the thing will never be seen again. .. 2:15 A.M. link

Should reporters be required to stand when he* enters the room?

*"The self-annointed Messiah, his "self-styled holiness," Obama, the "Magnificent" (according to himself and his "Michelle" [but she's another story--now "learning to love 'Whitey'"])

Obama's famed "African Cousin" Raila Odinga:

in August 2007, a memorandum of understanding [MOU] was signed by Raila Odinga and Sheikh Abdullah Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya which stated Odinga recognized that Islam is the only true religion.

The MOU states Odinga agreed to rewrite the constitution to establish Sharia Law for the Muslims regions. The MOU also stated Muslims would be free from foreign governments laws and processes particularly regarding terrorism. It goes on and on, all in favor of the Muslims. It also imposed an immediate ban on women's public dressing styles that are considered immoral and offensive to the Muslim faith whether the woman is a Muslim or not. But is this document authentic?

At first, the Muslim council denied it existed and called the MOU that was circulating as a fake but finally did acknowledge a MOU existed in November.

Last November, the Evangelical Alliance of Kenya found out about the memo. They have it posted on their website. Not surprisingly, these Christian leaders have grave concerns about what Odinga did. Read their press statement here.

On June 6th, reported that the MOU is raising its ugly little head . . .

Obama has never been a Muslim?
Obama asserted in December, "I've always been a Christian," and he has adamantly denied ever having been a Muslim. "The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country [Kenya]. But I've never practiced Islam." In February, he claimed: "I have never been a Muslim. … other than my name and the fact that I lived in a populous Muslim country for 4 years when I was a child [Indonesia, 1967-71] I have very little connection to the Islamic religion."

"Always" and "never" leave little room for equivocation. But many biographical facts, culled mainly from the American press, suggest that, when growing up, the Democratic candidate for president both saw himself and was seen as a Muslim.

Obama's Kenyan birth father: In Islam, religion passes from the father to the child. Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. (1936–1982) was a Muslim who named his boy Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. Only Muslim children are named "Hussein".
"Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood"

And . . .
Could this be from Lies My Father Told Me?

"Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian."

Obama was an irregularly practicing Muslim who rarely or occasionally prayed with his step-father in a mosque. This precisely substantiates my statement that he "for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father."

Therefore, what MMfA calls the "Obama-Muslim falsehood" is in fact confirmed by both articles as truthful and accurate.

Calling this a falsehood is in itself a falsehood.

"Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam"

Barack Obama tried to trick the American people and to finesse his own moral shortcomings through his undeniable charm and eloquence. But America does not need charming, eloquent liars in the White House. America does not need morally flawed leaders who are quite unwilling to admit their moral flaws, almost adamant even when confronted with those flaws that the flaws themselves do not exist.

. . . Barack Obama's candidacy is all the rage in the Arab Gulf states.

A friend from the Gulf tells me her young relative was so excited about the Democratic candidate that he tried to donate money over the Internet, as he'd heard so many young Americans were doing. Then he found out he had to be a U.S. citizen to do so. Another young woman, visiting from next-door Saudi Arabia, said that all her friends in Riyadh are "for Obama." The symbolism of a major American presidential candidate with the middle name of Hussein, who went to elementary school in Indonesia, certainly speaks to Muslims abroad.That's an interesting way to make a point lost on most American commentators: Barack Obama's father was Muslim and therefore, according to Islamic law, so is the candidate. In spite of the Quranic verses explaining that there is no compulsion in religion, a Muslim child takes the religion of his or her father.

An article has appeared on the ISM [International Solidarity Movement] affiliated website Electronic Intifada (EI) by one of its co-founders, Ali Abunimah, in which Abumimah recounts his close past working relationship with Obama prior to the presidential campaign and how Abunimah believes Obama is merely giving lip service to the Jewish community to get elected, and that once in office he will work for the Palestinian cause. Abunimah lists himself and is mentioned in subsequent Obama articles in the mainstream press merely as a "Palestinian activist." Abunimah insists that Obama will "come around" once elected.But Ali Abunimah is more than just some "Palestinian activist" based in Chicago, the same location as Reverend Wright and the Trinity United Church of Christ. He is, in fact, one of the founders of the fiercely anti-Semitic ISM Arab group Al Awda, the Palestine Right of Return Coalition. Abunimah is a high level international leader of the ISM for the Arabs who travels extensively between Chicago, Europe and Ramallah.

BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA: CORNERED LIKE A RAT!. . . how much did it take to get Obama to reject the endorsement of a vicious racist, Catholic-hating bigot, and anti-Semite? The answer is that Obama had to be cornered like a rat in front of millions of people, and someone who does the right thing only when he is cornered is totally unfit to hold any position of public trust or responsibility.

We don't need to be saved by a lifelong con artist with a manufactured biography who repackages himself to appeal to everyone while concealing his real sympathies behind a facade of multilevel marketing outreach.

. . . he’s not, as some hopefully dismiss him, a charismatic lightweight with a gift for sparkling the same old vapid cant. Judging from the company he chooses to keep, Obama’s change would radically alter this country. He eschews detail because most Americans don’t believe we’re a racist, heartless, imperialist cesspool of exploitation. The details would be disqualifying.
So, instead, we get glimpses. The most profound influence in his life, his wife Michelle, is notoriously less circumspect than her careful husband about where she’s coming from. Her college thesis, which Princeton tried to keep under lock and key, testifies to a race-obsessed worldview.

Is Barack Obama – junior U.S. senator from Illinois, best-selling author, Harvard Law Review editor, Men's Vogue cover model, and "exploratory" presidential candidate – the second coming of our Savior and our Redeemer, Prince of Peace and King of Kings, Jesus Christ?" . . . "His press coverage suggests we can't dismiss this possibility out of hand."

" . . . Wright explained: "When [Obama’s] enemies find out that in 1984 I went to Tripoli" to visit Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, "a lot of his Jewish support will dry up quicker than a snowball in hell."According to Wright, Obama then told him, "’You can get kind of rough in the sermons, so what we’ve decided is that it’s best for you not to be out there in public.’" Still, Obama and his family prayed privately with Wright just before the [Obama] presidential announcement.[Click Here to see the Wright ("God damn America") video]

Like Wright, Farrakhan has repeatedly made hate-filled statements targeting Jews (calling Judaism a "gutter religion"), whites, and America. He has called whites "blue-eyed devils" and the "anti-Christ." He has described Jews as "bloodsuckers" who control the government, the media, and some black organizations."I decry racism and anti-Semitism in every form and strongly condemn the anti-Semitic statements made by Minister Farrakhan," Obama said.Again, Obama was careful not to condemn Farrakhan himself or Wright who had spoken adoringly of Farrakhan and put their church behind the award to the controversial Nation of Islam leader."When Minister Farrakhan speaks, black America listens," Trumpet quoted Wright as saying. "His depth on analysis [sic] when it comes to the racial ills of this nation is astounding and eye-opening. He brings a perspective that is helpful and honest."

In a Paris Match interview . . . [Obama] indicated that one of the first things that he would do if elected would be to convene a summit with the leaders of the world's Muslim nations and enlist their aid in the war on terrorism. (For article on Paris Match interview, see

Ali Abunimah, a Chicago-based Palestinian-American activist and co-founder of Electronic Intifada, a pro-Palestinian online publication, recalls introducing Obama at one such event, a 1999 fundraiser for the Deheisha Palestinian camp in the West Bank.

Abunimah is also a harsh critic of Israel and has protested outside pro-Israel events in the Chicago area.

"I knew Barack Obama for many years as my state senator – when he used to attend events in the Palestinian community in Chicago all the time," stated Abuminah during an interview last month with Democracy Now!, a nationally syndicated radio and television political program.

"I remember personally introducing [Obama] onstage in 1999, when we had a major community fundraiser for the community center in Deheisha refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. And that's just one example of how Barack Obama used to be very comfortable speaking up for and being associated with Palestinian rights and opposing the Israeli occupation," Abunimah said.

Abunimah also was recently quoted saying that until a few years ago, Obama was "quite frank that the U.S. needed to be more evenhanded, that it leaned too much toward Israel."Abunimah noted Obama's unusual stance toward Israel, commenting "these were the kind of statements I'd never heard from a U.S. politician who seemed like he was going somewhere, rather than at the end of his career."

Please forget Bloomberg as a possible Veep for McCain. Alaska Gov Sarah Palin is the real deal for VP. A commenter on another post says it much better than I can:

"They say McCain reads the blogs, so here goes --

Senator McCain- Don't let the campaign kibbitzers muddle things up.

First and foremost, Sarah Palin shares your values. She killed the bridge to nowhere. Need we say more?

As for the politics, Sarah Palin transcends geography. Her constituency, like yours, goes beyond state lines.

She will get your ticket access to voters all over the country based on who she is and what she stands for. Because she's young, a woman, a mother with young kids, she will grab media attention more than any other potential candidate.

Gov. Palin also has a son in the active duty military. You have very wisely taken your son's service in Iraq off the table as a campaign talking point. That is and should be respected. But others can talk about it and reflect on what it means.

A McCain-Palin administration would be the first in memory which has family members in uniform during wartime from both the President and Vice President. That would be a powerful statement as to the importance of national service, especially in uniform.

Most importantly, any Vice President should be ready to step up and serve in the event she is needed. Frankly, who is really ever ready? Gov. Palin is as ready as anybody, she is a quick learner, and in her public career has exhibited the courage and decisiveness needed for a great leader.

Godspeed to you in your campaign and in making this important decision."
