Did Obama say the USA is a muslim nation?

Sean Hannity once again proves that he’s the guy who put the ‘a’ in moron, this time by pushing the bizarre myth that earlier this week President Obama called the U.S. "a Muslim nation."

As you can see in the video, President Obama’s actual remarks bear no resemblance whatsoever to Hannity’s false claim.

There was a time when Hannity telling a lie this big was an outrage. Now, however, it’s just sign #4,309 of the complete and utter collapse of the conservative movement as a coherent political force.

Video excerpts:

President Obama:

If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.

Sean Hannity:

He honors the national day of prayer behind closed doors. Now, on his Middle East apology tour, the President calls the U.S. a "Muslim nation."

President Obama:

We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation, or a Jewish nation, or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens, who are bound by ideals.

Sean Hannity:

The same president who insists the U.S. is not a Christian nation is now calling us a Muslim nation.
