Angelina Jolie spoke out this week against Terry Jones, the minister in Florida who plans to hold a Quran burning rally on September 11.

Now, President Barack Obama has issued a message to the man whose response to a tragedy based on religious extremism is host an event that is both religious and extreme.

"I hope he understands that what he's proposing to do is completely contrary to our values as Americans," Obama told Good Morning America. "That this country has been built on the notion of freedom and religious tolerance."

Jones, of course, has the right to burn anything he wants, but Obama tried to appeal to the practical side of this issue as well as the ethical one. He said:

"I just want him to understand that this stunt that he is talking about pulling could greatly endanger our young men and women who are in uniform... this is a recruitment bonanza for Al Qaida. You could have serious violence in places like Pakistan and Afghanistan."

Responding to various tabloids and legions of Glenn Beck fans, Newsweek labels U.S. President Barack Obama is a “Terrorist-Coddling, Warmongering, Wall Street-Loving, Socialistic, Godless Muslim President” this week - with an asterisk.

The asterisk, of course, notes that he isn’t any of these things.

** - He's really not.

Or is he? Some people will believe anything and probably call Newsweek "just another liberal rag" for suggesting he's NOT a socialist. Some people are also idiots.

But hey, notice that the asterisk appears after the word President? Maybe that's their way of saying he isn't even a U.S. Citizen and should be impeached! NOW!!

The conspiracies will likely never end among the uninformed. But enough out of us. Let's hear what you think: Is President Obama a Muslim?

One is the studliest actor on the big screen; the other is the leader of the free world.

Still, it's not a great week to be either Robert Pattinson or Barack Obama, as information both would prefer to remain secret has leaked into the excitable arms of two leading tabloids. Or, at least, just two tabloids.

First, it appears as though the Sexiest Man Alive is at the center of a plot to bring down his successful movie career. This scandal - full of BETRAYAL, JEALOUSY AND LIES! - also plays a role in this relationship with Kristen Stewart. Interesting.

Almost as interesting as the proof The Globe has that President Obama is a Muslim! Shocking, indeed...

Trouble for Rob?!?

Apparently (bottom right, above), Demi Moore also has lesbian tendencies. We doubt Ashton Kutcher has a problem with that, though.

But back to the most pressing accusation in these articles. Do you think President Obama is a Muslim?

Snooki is upset with President Obama, and not because of foreign policy, health care reform or even the tanning tax she whined about in the Jersey Shore premiere.

She thinks he dissed her on TV.

During Obama's visit to The View, he said he didn't know who Snooki was. Hard to blame him for trying to dodge that one, but in May, POTUS joked that the Jersey Shore star and her cohorts should be excluded from that very tanning tax.

"I know he knows who I am," Snooki told E! Online this weekend. "Why did he have to lie and say he didn't know me? He did say Snooki and JWoww about the tanning stuff and now he doesn't know who I am? He has to stop lying."

Looks like Barack's down one voter in 2012.

KISS OFF: Snooki wants the President to stop the lies.

As for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie slamming the MTV series for tarnishing the Garden's State's image, Snooki, who is actually from N.Y. State, simply said:

"He needs to come over and have a hot dog and a Corona and just chill."

But not too many Coronas. Otherwise he could end up arrested like Snooki on July 30. "I learned not to drink during the day and save it for the clubs. Have you ever been in jail? It's not fun. I never want to go there again."

We have, and can vouch for her on that one. Better to wait until at least 4 p.m. before cracking open that first cold one. Maybe she'll write this newfound wisdom down in one of her new books. Yes, that was books, plural.

"One is the Snooktionary with all my sayings," Snooki said. "The other is the story of somebody going to Seaside Heights and everything that could happen to them."

Could make a nice stocking stuffer, Barack.

Barack Hussein Obama II, the current President of the United States, turns 49 years old today. Happy birthday to our country's 44th Commander-in-Chief!

Since his historic election in November 2008, Obama's White House term has produced significant accomplishments amid impossibly high expectations.

It has also led many, even those who support him, to believe he's not doing enough. His critics see him taking the U.S. in the wrong direction entirely.

No matter how you see it, you most likely have a strong opinion in what have become turbulent, critical times for our nation. But we are all Americans.

Let's put aside our differences and embrace our differences of opinion. We love a spirited debate, but we can do so more respectively and constructively.

Regardless of your political affiliation, we can all wish the man a very happy birthday! But while we're on the subject of his controversial first term  ...

Is Barack Obama doing a good job as President?

Yesterday's appearance by Barack Obama on The View was not warmly greeted by some of the President's critics who questioned the nature of the visit.

Chief among said critics: Sarah Palin. Ripping his decision to sit down for a light interview on daytime TV amid myriad national crises, Palin Twittered:

"President with no time to visit porous US/Mexican border to offer help to those risking life to secure us, but lotso’ time to chat on The View? ... I’m headed to border in near future. Let’s see how quickly his travel schedule will allow that border visit after all.”

It might be a compelling point, if it weren't Sarah Palin.

POTUS in Action

Sarah Palin questions our President's commitment to public service.

The former Alaska Governor is referring to the region's drug wars and the debate over immigration in this country, and whether Obama should be on The View during such turbulent - or any - times is a subject many have raised, and not without validity.

With our nation burdened by two wars, immigration upheaval, rampant unemployment and the worst ecological disaster of all time, seeing our Commander-in-Chief chatting about Lindsay Lohan and Jay-Z is not as charming as it once was.

Let's not forget, though, that this criticism is coming from a woman who quit after less than a term as Alaska Governor to pursue lucrative, self-serving endeavors such as writing a memoir of her distinguished "career" and posing for In Touch Weekly.

That's her right, of course, and good for her. But for a woman clearly in love with her own celebrity and more interested in fulfilling Sarah Palin's every whim than in public service, criticism of one interview by the President is laughable.

Agree? Disagree? Weigh in below ...

President Barack Obama stopped by The View today, marking the first-ever appearance by a sitting Commander-in-Chief on a daytime talk show.

The subject matter was mostly light.

Obama did touch on some of his recent lows - prosecuting two wars, the BP oil slick, a misstep over a race flap - and the greatest indignity of all:

He wasn't invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding.

"I was not invited," Obama admitted when asked if he'd be attending Chelsea's nuptials with Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck, N.Y., this coming weekend.

Obama said he supported the Clintons' decision to limit invites to guests who had a relationship with Chelsea, rather than including world leaders.

"I think Hillary and Bill properly want to keep this as a thing for Chelsea and her soon-to-be husband," he said. "You don't want two presidents."

Obama later revealed that his pop culture knowledge is significant, but not without holes. "I've got to admit I don't know who Snooki is," he said.

"I knew Lindsay was in jail," he added, referring to the jailing of Lindsay Lohan for failing to comply with probation terms of her DUI sentencing.

Asked about the recent scandal over the Oksana Grigorieva / Mel Gibson tapes, Obama replied: "I haven't seen a Mel Gibson movie in a while."

Obama does not use Twitter, but was a big fan of the iPod.

"I got Jay-Z on there, I've got Frank Sinatra. I've got Maria Callas on there," he said of the MP3 player. "I do not have Justin Bieber on there."

Slipping in polls of late, Obama may have decided on the light sit-down with the women of The View to reconnect with his female base.

He accomplished that, but did touch on some key issues.

To say Jon Voight is not a huge fan of Barack Obama would probably be a fairly safe statement, but Angelina Jolie's estranged father has really outdone himself now.

Slamming the Commander-in-Chief again in an open letter in the Washington Post, the 71-year-old staunch Republican makes some pretty strong accusations.

Jon's views, in a nutshell: Barack Obama propagandizes and hates Jews while defending criminals, illegal immigrants and terrorists for political gain. Harsh.

The letter makes his anti-health care rant seem tame.

Here's what Voight had to say about Obama, who he previously termed a "false prophet" and his controversial foreign and domestic policies. Do you agree?

"President Obama:

"You will be the first American president that lied to the Jewish people, and the American people as well, when you said that you would defend Israel, the only Democratic state in the Middle East, against all their enemies."

"You have done the opposite."

"You have propagandized Israel, until they look like they are everyone's enemy - and it has resonated throughout the world. You are putting Israel in harm's way, and you have promoted anti-Semitism throughout the world."
