Haley Barbour, marionette master:

A reporter followed up to ask Barbour for his opinion as to why so many Americans (wrongly) think Obama is a Muslim.

"I don't know why people think what they think," Barbour said. He paused and then added, "This is a president that we know less about than any other president in history."

There's a couple of possibilities here. Either Haley Barbour does not know how to read and therefore missed the two books written by Barack Obama about his life, his family and his outlook, or he's just being a divisive jerk. Or both.
