Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
I think that significant numbers, on both sides of the aisle, view this as an abomination and are frustrated because legally, their hands are tied. I think more Americans think this is a bad idea than a good one.
However, most American's understand that the cost of sacrificing the very core of American ideals and tenents is a worse idea than allowing this mosque. Those who do not understand that, wouldn't vote for Obama anyways. So, no. Taking the correct position on this debacle, will not hurt Obama. In fact, I think most Americans sense his own frustration about having to take the position that is the correct one, rather than the emotional one. A lot of us share that frustration.
All that being said, I am SURE some pundits out there, famous for causing wedge distractions, will play it for all it's worth. And as sure as the sun rises, some sheep will follow. But the next election will be all about the pocketbook.

It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Can anyone help me out. What has Obama ever done that you think that I, as a conservative should agree with?
I thought this was one, but maybe not.
Things you as a conservative may agree with(I dislike "should", you are the only one to judge that):
Tax cuts for individuals.
Tax breaks for small businesses
Aggressively pursued the war on terror in Afghanistan.
There are I am sure more, but those off the top of my head. However, I do point out that since conservatives and liberals have different visions on how to make the country better, most of what he does is not going to be liked by you or other conservatives, in the same way I disliked most of what Bush and Reagan did.
