(R) Congressman: If Obama elected Al Qaida will dance in the streets.
"I don't want to disparage anyone because of their race, their ethnicity, their name - whatever their religion their father might have been," he said. "I'll just say this: When you think about the option of a Barack Obama potentially getting elected President of the United States -- I mean, what does this look like to the rest of the world? What does it look like to the world of Islam?"

He continued: "I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the radical Islamists, the al-Qaida, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11 because they will declare victory in this War on Terror."

King thinks radical Islamists will say the United States has capitulated because the Obama administration would be pulling troops out of any conflict associated with al-Qaida.

"Additionally, his middle name (Hussein) does matter," King said. "It matters because they read a meaning into that in the rest of the world. That has a special meaning to them. They will be dancing in the streets because of his middle name. They will be dancing in the streets because of who his father was and because of his posture that says: Pull out of the Middle East and pull out of this conflict."

5. And that any Democrat would parrot this type of thinking
and endorse stereotyping and bigotry either by commission or omission is reprehensible.

6. McCain lost 5 years of making war while he was in a prisoner of war camp. If elected, he will
have the opportunity to go to war, like his father and grandfather did. After all, it is in his blood.

7. The reality is the the last thing the terrorist want is President Obama
It will destroy their recruiting claim that America hates Muslims and is trying to destroy all Muslims. It would under mine the very claims they are based on. It would be utterly devestating to the terrorists, when Obama is elected president. On top of that TERRORist rely on leaders acting out of emotion instead of logic. With bush gone and Obama in, that's not going to happen anymore. They will lose their ability to manipulate the US.

8. R
He doesn't believe this for a minute. It is just typical Republican fear-mongering. Well, it was only Republican until lately.
