Well, this has gone way over the extreme. Muslims attacked the World Trade Towers, and killed 3000 in the process. Americans should build a memorial to those killed, not a mosque honoring the attack. I have nothing against Muslims, but truthfully, this is over the line of decency
The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that things are not mended again. - Alan Paton
Bach is the beginning and end of all music - Max Reger
It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
That was a flat lie. He said they had the right but also said that he would not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there.
This sounds like something Palin would say in accusing Obama of sending in troops to build the mosque.
It would be so nice if people could read and comprehend instead of jumping on soundbites.
It's sort of hard to oppose this without conflating Al Qaeda with mainstream Muslims. Either you believe:
1. Al Qaeda and mainstream Muslims are identical.
2. They aren't identical, but people can't be expected to differentiate the two, so we evaluate them as though they are identical.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
Mosque controversy swirls around Obama - James Hohmann and Maggie Haberman and Mike Allen - POLITICO.com
some comments from hohman, haberman and allen
"the white house on saturday struggled to tamp down the controversy over obama's remarks friday nite"
he "transformed an emotion-laden local dispute in new york into a nationwide debate overnite"
"democrats---at least those 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"
it is what it is---politico, which proudly boasted three known members of the prestigious journo-list, illustrious representatives of gibbs' professional left, does not appear very impressed with the president's prospects
neither do the members of his party

Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
How a christian or jew in the US can vote for him in 2012 is unfathomable, he almost makes me long for Carter, who I was ready to mark as the worst president of the last century, but Obama is overtaking him by a wide margin.
