Obama Says He Isn't Worried About Muslim Rumors

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - President Barack Obama says he isn't worried
about a recent poll showing that nearly one-fifth of Americans believe he is a Muslim.

Obama, who is a Christian, says "the facts are the facts." In an interview broadcast Sunday on "NBC Nightly News," the president blamed the confusion over his religious beliefs on "a network of misinformation."

Obama says he wouldn't get much done if he spent all his time chasing after rumors, like persistent accusations that he wasn't born in the United States.

He says he can't go around with his "birth certificate plastered on (his) forehead." And he says he has faith in "the American people's capacity to get beyond all this nonsense."
