Pretty gutsy move, actually.

Thank you, Quazi!
yes, mr rauf and mr obama are EXPERTS at improving relations
we all recall when barry hussein jetted overseas to meet with the leaders of iran like he promised 100 times, thereby changing america's image abroad and the whole worried world in that wonderful way of his

What surprises me is the comments of those who say they are Conservatives. Your very idealogy means you support this measure.
If you say you support the Constitution, then you support the right of the owner of this Mosque to practise his religious faith in this country.
If you say the U.S. is a nation of laws, then you support the legal right for this Mosque to be built exactly in the location where it was originally planned as long as the proper building permits were applied for, purchased and zoning codes are followed.
If you say you support the basic rights of Americans under the Bill of Rights, then you have no choice but to support the right for this Mosque to be built.
The President of the United States of America is affirming that we are a nation that does not ignores the basic rights of its citizens and will uphold the rule of law no matter how painful it may be at times.
but since he really does want to improve relations with his neighbors he should (and he will, in time) VOLUNTARILY move this thing elsewhere
he'll do so outta respect for all the idiots in his neighborhood he's so thoughtlessly offended
mr obama put the seal on it, this issue is now gonna EXPLODE
ksm will have his manhattan trial in the courtroom of his equivalent of lance ito before the cornerstone for this mosque is physically laid
politics persistently prevails

It won't, of course, be judicial activism if a judge puts a stop to this.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
obama was gonna improve relations with iran, remember?
how's that workin?
obama's not very good at improving relations
why, he's taken a nation that once adored and admired him and turned it into one that changes the channel before he has a chance to bore them once more to death with his insufferable washington-knows-best theme
americans are PISSED, or haven't you noticed?
rauf's not very good at improving relations, either
I am with SgtRock in many ways. I am REALLY starting to hate those bastards too. I feel that the religion of Islam is a blight upon mankind and I would rather see it treated as a disease rather than a religion, but I digress. But that's just my smelly opinion too. (I could probably add a couple more religions to the list as well...)
So here's the predicament. We shut them down, thereby compromising and casting aside our laws, freedom of religion, speech, (and probably a plethora of others) thus giving these germs the final victory over us, OR, we stick to our principles and stand by and watch them memorialize Ground Zero as a Islamic victory.
It's "lose, lose" and it's frustrating.
Isn't there a big historical stink in Israel about some Muslim Mosque that was built atop a temple when the Muslim's conquered the area? I seem to remember something like that. Insult to injury. Modus Operandi. Many people, including myself, consider this to be similar in principle.
So, whereas, I agree with Obama, I don't gotta like it. Our way of life, with all it's advantages, can be a double-edge sword.
