    I suspect you misunderstood again. Sadly. I'm not using a source as the gospel here. It is to show you how a site can misrepresent something. Again, you miss the meaning.

    All apologies J-mac. I just call's 'em like I see's 'em. I mean, it is what it is. Didn't mean to touch a nerve.

    I don't think Obama has a problem of others pulling him 'out of context' as it were, I think he has a problem because he is a rank amateur, and sympathizes with those that want to destroy America as it currently exists.

    Oh, it points out some silliness, but most actual christians don't meet the stero type provided in the letter. And it is much the same type of misrepresentation, though not going as far as to present itself as serious, as we see with the American (non)Thinker article. Both are sad misrepresentation, the only difference being one uses some humor.

    Ok Joe, now put on your teaching hat here, and show me in the AT article exactly where the misrepresentations are if you would be so kind. And be specific with actual back up sourcing to show and prove your hypothesis.....

    Yeah, buddy, keep up with the insults. That will play well in November.

    Obama couldn't care less about the Constitution, other than trying with all his might to burn it in the public square. The Constitution is nothing but an inconvient nuisance to him. This is solely, and entirely, about politics, and sticking it in the eye of conservatives; that's the only play he knows, and the only goal he understands.

    Obama is an abortion. Or at least he's a good argument for it.

    Every part of the media misconstrued his original remarks - not just the anti-Obama crowd. When I first saw the headlines I facepalmed, wondering why Obama would take sides as to whether or not the mosque should be built. None of his comments supported those headlines, though. The right harped on it more, but even the left wing media's stories claimed that he was in favor of the mosque.

    That's not the case.

    St. Nicholas Church is not looking to be rebuilt at the same location on which it stood before. It is looking to be built on a larger piece of land currently owned by the Port Authority. There was a dispute over terms involved in a possible land swap, including the possibility of a government subsidy. The Church can rebuild on its original plot of land.

    From The New York Times:

    The fate of the church, a narrow whitewashed building that was crushed in the attack on the World Trade Center, was supposed to have been settled eight months ago, with a tentative agreement in which the church would swap its land for a grander church building on a larger parcel nearby, with a $20 million subsidy from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. This would have allowed work to begin at the south end of the site...

    The authority now says that St. Nicholas is free to rebuild the church on its own parcel at 155 Cedar Street, just east of West Street.

    So now even Harry Reid is separating himself from Obama on this.

    LOL

    Top Democrat splits with Obama on Ground Zero mosque - Telegraph

    We all KNOW that Harry doesn't feel this way. This just shows he's a little concerned about his re-election bid right now.
