Mosque Controversy Swirls Around Obama

The White House on Saturday struggled to tamp down the controversy over President Barack Obama’s statements about a mosque near Ground Zero — insisting Obama wasn’t backing off remarks Friday night where he offered support for a project that has infuriated some families whose loved ones died in the Sept. 11 attacks.
Obama’s comments placed him in the middle of the controversy over a Muslim group’s plans for a mosque near the site of the 2001 attack — and in turn, transformed an emotion-laden local dispute in New York into a nationwide debate overnight.
Republicans pounced, amid early signs that the issue would seep into some state and congressional contests. “It is divisive and disrespectful to build a mosque next to the site where 3,000 innocent people were murdered at the hands of Islamic extremism,” said Florida GOP Senate candidate Marco Rubio. His opponent, Charlie Crist, a Republican turned independent, came out in support of Obama’s comments.
And Democrats — at least some who were willing to comment — could barely contain their frustration over Obama’s remarks, saying he had potentially placed every one of their candidates into the middle of the debate by giving GOP candidates a chance to ask them point-blank: Do you agree with Obama on the mosque, or not?

Palin to Obama on Ground Zero Mosque: "This Is Not Above Your Pay Grade"

Weekly Standard

Sarah Palin responds to the president's comments on the Ground Zero mosque:

Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade. If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive "cross-cultural engagement" and dialogue to show a moderate and tolerant face of Islam, then why haven't they recognized that the decision to build a mosque at this particular location is doing just the opposite? Mr. President, why aren't you encouraging the mosque developers to accept Governor Paterson's generous offer of assistance in finding a new location for the mosque on state land if they move it away from Ground Zero? Why haven't they jumped at this offer? Why are they apparently so set on building a mosque steps from what you have described, in agreement with me, as "hallowed ground"? I believe these are legitimate questions to ask.


Wild Thing's comment.......

To what Drudge wrote under Obama's photo, I say......Klaatu barada nikto!

Obama is Satan's servant = totally anti-American, anti-Semitic and filled with the spirit of antichrist.

....Thank you Mark for sending this to me.

It appears that our Dear Leader, is becoming more and more blatant in his statements and his actions.

As to the reason for this,I haven't a clue, other than the fact that he sees his poll numbers falling like a stone, and he just doesn't give a damn.

He realizes that the American people have lost faith in him, in all areas of his Administration.
At this point, I am sure that he is relying less and less on his advisors and is drawing more on his personal beliefs and feelings.

He has been in way over his head from the get go, but he rode the charismatic mood following this election and took advantage of it to force his will and agenda on Congress and the American people.

Now, even members of his own party are attempting to distance themselves. This alone, tells you a lot of the state of his Administration.

We are liable to see a changing of the guard, of epic proportions in the House and the Senate, come November. This will be but the first step in getting this Country back on the right road.

That being said, we all had better hope that we elect the right people who are not afraid to take the risks necessary. We cannot afford anything less.

To be very honest nothing this jack-ass does surprises me anymore! I just see his jug eared face or here his whinny voice and I just get angry because I know whatever he has to say is just going to be another in a long list of slanders against the American people!

He is now trying to back peddle on his ramadan comments but its already out there and the mosk and the people have drawn sides. He losing support faster and faster, everytime he opens his mouth he's dropping a point or two.

He was trying to say it is a first amendment issue. and he even mentioned the 'Founders' but never uttered the word Fathers. Since when does this turd ever follow the Constitution, now all of a sudden he found an amendment that isn't negative ? He's a muslim all right and obama will say and do anything to stay in there good stead. The slimeball.

Phony as an 8 dollar Clinton bill.

Tom, I hope that is exactly what happenes.

Sean, I agree, he really is more blatant each time. I would not be surprised if one day he says they will have call to prayer at the WH.

I agree too, I hope and pray we get those elected that will stand up to him, speak out and make sure they take America back in all the bills he has passed and redo things he has changed.

MrHappy, same here, he has yet to open his mouth and say anything that is FOR America, only things attacking our country.

Dear Mr. President. While were lobbying for a islamic mosque by the 9/11 WTC site, why don't we just have Japan build a buddist monistary right next to the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor! What the *$()#*$ is this country coming too when a US President basically spits on those who died in 9/11.
