Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Barack Hussein Obama …
Michelle and I would like to send our best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year, and to Muslims in America and around the world who are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha. The rituals of Hajj and Eid-ul-Adha both serve as reminders of the shared Abrahamic roots of three of the world’s major religions.
President Obama provided a Thanksgiving proclamation HERE, but this is just odd. There is just something inherently wrong with this over-reaching with Muslims and the Muslim religion. There is something that is so wrong with having seen the long lines that US citizens had to wait to get their H1N1 shots, yet it is reported the following.

This year, I am pleased that the Department of Health and Human Services has partnered with the Saudi Health Ministry to prevent and limit the spread of H1N1 during Hajj. Cooperating on combating H1N1 is one of the ways we are implementing my administration’s commitment to partnership in areas of mutual interest.
Maybe the Department of Health and Human Services could have taken care of their own citizens first in a better manner. Just a thought.
