President Obama's speech Tuesday was a deliberate block of airing the "Peanuts" Christmas television special the Mayor of Arlington, Tennessee charged.  Mayor Russell Wiseman posted the statement on his Facebook page and said the president is muslim.  President Obama is Christian.  "We sit the kids down to watch the 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim president is there, what a load....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose," he wrote according to the  Commercial Appeal newspaper in Memphis.  Wiseman downplayed the posting when he was contacted by the paper and wouldn't return calls from the Associated Press.
