Blaming the victim:
(excerpts, emp add)
Former House Speaker and potential GOP presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich used an appearance on Spanish-language television to sound off on questions surrounding President Obama's birthplace and religious faith, declaring the president has an "obligation" to figure out why so many Americans doubt his life story.
"I think some of this stuff is just a sign of how much fear and anxiety has built up," Gingrich said, "but I think the president has an obligation to slow down and say, if you're president of all thepeople , what is it the White House is doing that so frightens a third of the Republican Party that they don't even believe something as simple and as obvious as his self-professed religious belief."
Yeah! What is it the White House is doing?

The issue isn't whether he is a Muslim. The issue is whether he is a liar. The fear and anxiety isn't over his religion. The fear and anxiety are because it has become clear that he is implementing a destructive agenda. The tie-in to his religion is that if he is lying about something as fundamental as his religion, then how can anyone believe a single thing he says? Answer -- increasingly they don't.
