Harry Reid Opposes The Ground Zero Mosque?
Worried about November, of course.
Accountability has a way of coming around, sooner or later.
From Weasel Zippers, citing Associated Press:
The Senate’s top Democrat says a mosque should not be built near the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.Obama has become political poison. He can backpedal ("clarify") all he wants about the Ground Zero Mosque statement made at the White House Ramadan dinner. Democrats up for re-election this November know that Obama's statement hurts their chances for holding on to their seats in Congress.
Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada on Monday became the highest profile Democrat to break with President Barack Obama, who on Friday backed the right for the developers to build a mosque near ground zero.
In a statement, Reid said the first amendment protects freedom of religion and he respects that, but the mosque should be built somewhere else.
How is Obama going to handle himself as his cohorts desert a sinking ship?
And didn't he imply in his Ramadan speech, replete with lies delivered in his usual preachy and scolding manner, that opposing the Ground Zero Mosque is unconstitutional and un-American?
I admit my confusion about one matter: Obama must have known that the statement he was making at the White House Ramadan dinner would have negative effects, and his remarks were scripted as well. Why, then, did he say what he said? Please weigh in, in the comments section below.
