Writings and observations

It’s been an oft-repeated line on the Republican presidential trail, that President Barack Obama is hostile to religion, even waging a war on it.

If people anywhere in the country logically – based on their voting patterns – ought to be agreeing, you’d see it in the central Idaho Panhandle, in Kootenai County country, home to what by many measures may be Idaho’s most far-right legislative district.

Dave Oliveria at the Spokesman-Review‘s Huckleberries blog put the question in a poll, and here are the results: “Almost a supermajority of Hucks Nation disagrees with GOPresidential candidate Rick Santorum’s claim that President Barack Obama is hostile to religion. 128 of 201 respondents (63.68%) said Obama isn’t hostile to religion. 68 of 201 respondents (33.83%) said the president is hostile to religion. 5 of 201 (2.49%) were undecided.”
