President Obama has spoken proudly of American Muslims, even referencing his heritage as the son of a Muslim man, ahead of his highly anticipated speech Thursday in Cairo aimed at shoring up relations between the U.S. and the Muslim world.

Obama's openness about his own Muslim heritage may seem startling after his presidential campaign last year went to great lengths to debunk false rumors about his religion -- he is Christian -- but the president showed long ago that he is comfortable talking about his roots, which are addressed in his two biographical books, "Dreams From My Father" and "The Audacity of Hope."

It seems just like yesterday when the elections were going on and when i dared to say that obama was a Muslim on here, I got bash big time.

How does having Muslim heritage in your family mean you cannot be a Christian? I'm not sure that I'm unsure where this non-sequitur is going.

Perhaps I should be uncomfortable speaking of my Jewish roots even though by birth I should be a Lutheran. Hmmm.

My opinion is that it could offer a slight advantage in dealing with that area of the world and I didn't think so because he says it now.

I guess just like any other politician. Obama just takes it to the extreme
