    Voters won't care about (or even remember) the mosque controversy in November. For that matter, hardly anyone cares about it NOW. It's simply not an important issue to anyone except political pundits.

    Democratic political prospects in November will be determined by the state of the economy in November, and how much voters hold them responsible for that. Period.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I was thinking along those lines. Those who don't follow politics closely have a very short memory regarding such things.

    Seems highly unlikely. The economy will be the overriding issue in November.

    Which looks as though it will still hurt the left. The economy is ****, at least here in Maine--and from what I hear we aren't alone.

    Its yet one more act to show the Messiah's insensitivity to the feelings of real Americans. He's not a real American, so it's not surprising he doesn't understand us. He didn't watch the fourth of July fireworks when he was four, his father never took him to a baseball game when his six, the people who raised him almost universally hated the United States. What's to wonder about here?

    So what if he takes a position pleasing to the muslim imams he was influenced by in his youth? Right?

    But for everything he screws up, and that means everything he does, he alienates more voters. He's been so effective at alienating voters he's now cutting into his support from the Dumocrats themselves. He's setting the stage for a Hillary prmary victory in 2012.

    Because the right really doesn't care about the Constitution, obviously, no matter how much they complain about it.

    Nah, this won't hurt the democrats. The kind of people who want to discriminate against Muslims vote Republican anyway, along with all the people who hate immigrants and gays and atheists and apparently a huge percentage of the American population.

    Real Americans love the Constitution and everything it stands for.

    I said NO. I didn't see his original comments on it. But I did him him follow up later. He said he questioned the wisdom of it but they had a right to build it by law. That doesn't sound like support to me. It's the same way I feel about it.
    Let me be clear.....I did not hear his original commnets so he very well could have come out in support of it then. If so, it could hurt his poll numbers and possibly the dems a teeny bit in Nov.

    There are many reasonable conservatives who agree with that position. Even some on Fox are agreeing with Obama.

    I'm sure most reasonable people who believe in the constitution feel the same way as Obama. The constitution gives them the right to practice their faith where ever they wish... and as much of a bad idea I think it is for them to build a mosque in that location, I support their right to do so. Many might not like their plan to build there... but the constitution grants people the rights to do some things other people might not like. We cannot (and should not be able to) ignore the constitution just because someone's feelings will be hurt. To do so would pave the way for future degradation of other people's rights.

This, in my humble apprehension, it to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution." óJohn Adams
