Excuse me, I haven't read everyone's comment but if President Obama did go to the Mosque and pray on a Friday, and said 'Allah is Great' isn't there something in the US Constitution that says something like a man's religion does not prevent him from holding office? I.e., if he was a devout, faithful worshipper of Allah, it wouldn't matter.
And you've never met any Muslims, dear Larry Klayman, or if have you haven't heard them. Socialism and Islam are rivals, most Muslims see Socialism and it's more radical cousin Communism as secular religions which should be tackled and people converted from.
And it isn't 'politically correct' to state the fact Islam is a legitimate religion, in that it's adherents pray and worship a Deity and follow the tenents of their holy writings, just like Christianity.

[I am sickened by the Republican field. With few exceptions they not only lack the experience to be president, but also common sense.]
Gee, I wonder why that is?
You wanna know why people in your party lacks common sense? Because it's members spout shit like what you just posted.

I know that the conspiracy theories about Obama being a Muslim and/or born in Kenya are not going to go away.
But can we PLEASE bury this ridiculous notion that he's a socialist?

Let me tell you a secret. If you still insist that Obama is muslim despite going to a church and drinking beer in public, if you're the support they get, they will never win.

"also banning all immigration from countries on the terrorist watch list."
As far as I am concerned, the US should be on that list... with very few exceptions, the US has (over the last 40 years or so) done everything that all the countries on that list have done, except "bigger and better".
Hell, given how much funding recognised terrorist outfits have received from the US over the decades, it's pretty fucking obvious that the primary cause of Terrorism is the fucking US!
note: this is mainly about US foreign policy, not about the general public there... you poor shmucks need help with that lot.

"For many years since Sept. 11, I have struggled with politically correct notion that Islam is a legitimate religion. And, in these years I have come to conclude that it is not ..."
Good first step. Now repeat with the remaining religions in the world. And I do mean ALL of them, young man.
Then you'll get a cookie and a pat on the head.

Yes, I agree that Obama winning is not a good thing for America. However, all of the Republican candidates are - as you say - bereft of talent, and would be worse for America.
The rest of your post makes no sense whatsoever.

I do not think you know anything about Islam.
Including what makes a person a Muslim. If a Muslim shuns his or her religion and stops practicing, they are either lapsed or apostate, depending on the force of their repudiation of their prior vows. An apostate from Islam is by definition no longer Muslim. They have absented themselves from the community of the prophet.
Islam technically says they deserve to die for this. (Christianity says something similar--yes, in the New Testament.) Fascinatingly, vanishingly few Muslims will actually respond to apostasy with murder, because that is insane. Especially outside of countries ruled by crazy religious people.

Perhaps we should encourage the world's religions to follow the same pattern as the Republican primaries: all the crazies are at each others' throats, and once they've destroyed each other they will be to exhausted and drained of resources to be able to fight back against the marginally less crazy people.

That's correct. The Constitution explicitly bans religious tests for holding public office, including the Presidency.

Gingrich? Sensible? The man advocates forced child labour for pity's sake. With all the warhawking, threats to non-christians and repeated attempts to kill the poor, he comes off less like a politician and more like a cartoon supervillain.

"I am sickened by the Republican field."
Good. Your previous 'best' left the White House in early 2009, and look what a complete fuckup he was?!
The next sound you will hear Larry-boy, is that of metal scraping against concrete. Because the GOP will have gone through the bottom of the (pork)barrel to the floor underneath, to find (using their 'faith' in God) the last subatomic particle of a remotely credible candidate to even attempt to go up against Obama next year.
And the way things are going for the Repubicans, they're worse than fucked. The only possibly credible candidate, Mitt Romney? Fundies have said they'll [i]refuse to vote for him, as he's a Mormon; even though he'll appeal to the moderate Republicans & all-important swing voters, the GOP will have alienated as substantial percentage of the electorate in the process. On the other hand...:
If Gingrich is nominated - just to get said Religious Right to the polling booths - they'll at a stroke alienate the moderates & swing-voters; after all, they'll remember Sarah Failin. To say nothing of Newt being a profligate spender on jewellery (in these financially fragile times), when most people - voters - can barely scrape together the ca$h to make next month's morgage payment. And then there's the little matter of him being a multiple divorcee...!
True, said Religious Right are falling over themselves to kiss Gingrich's arse - despite his own adulterous sins - but then, they did the same, re. McCain. When previously, they accused him of being the worst RINO out there.
Hypocrisy, thy name is fundie. Fickle, too...!
