but due to politics I’m not saying exactly which mosque
Sarah Palin: “Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3,000 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,”
This is a hand wrapped gift to the Counterjihad and to conservatives, thank you Mr.President, you just gave both groups the opportunity to expose your grand standing naivety, duplicitous nature as well as the opportunity to unwrap Islam to the nation as a whole as you have now made this a national issue. Well done! KGS
Politico: 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.
