ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Sen. Barack Obama's foes seized Sunday upon a brief slip of the tongue, when the Democratic presidential nominee was outlining his Christianity but accidentally said, "my Muslim faith."
The three words -- immediately corrected -- were during an exchange with ABC's George Stephanopoulos on "This Week," when he was trying to criticize the quiet smear campaign suggesting he is a Muslim.
But illustrating the difficulty of preventing false rumors about his faith from spreading, anti-Obama groups within one hour of the interview had sliced it out of context and were sending it around via email. They also were blogging about it.
Mr. Obama, who is a Christian and often proudly speaks about how his faith has influenced his public service, said he finds it "deeply offensive" that there are efforts "coming out of the Republican camp to suggest that perhaps I'm not who I say I am when it comes to my faith."

So Obamas defending himself against saying what John McCain didnt say about the Muslim faith that Obama doesnt hold?
Not immediately corrected by Hussein but rather by George Stephanopolus
“my Muslim faith.”
It was probably the first time in his life he was EVER HONEST.
The urge to bow before Mecca must be intense. I wonder if he’s dropped to the floor at odd times and places.
SUCK IT DUmmies. Weenie out of this one and throw in a "we were recycling the flags" plug too.
The Golden-tongued Messiah is now Mr. Stumblelips. How's he gonna talk/charm us to Progressive Paradise if he's stuttering and incoherent?
Immediately corrected by George and thanks to ala .
Obama made his bed, now he can "lie" in it.
Yes, that's about it. Make it seem like McCain said or even implied this. Which is why I am fine with the "lie" the bloggers have posted by chopping the video. It counters one bold-face lie (about McCain) against another probably lie (that Obama is more Muslim than Christian).
That we declare November 1, 1997 to be the
South Shore Islamic Community Center Day
He's got a real half brother running around with muzzie pictures of BO and the rest of their family and he thinks that we're trying to suggest that there are muslim connections? WTF?
The media covers their Messiah’s slips. You can bet your last dollar they will not do that for McCain or Palin. Their biased and reprehensible tactics are out there for one and all to take note of.
Obama was the one who took McCain’s line about $5 million out of context and put it in his DNC speech.
Slippery character alright.
IMO, he is a one man sleeper cell.
He fumbled his chance to clear up whatever issue he thought there was to clear up and provided more ammo to people who already want to believe he's trying to pull the wool over their eyes.
You could see the “oh shit” look in his eyes. LOL
Accidental slip of the tongue, I DON'T THINK SO.
