Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Night and Day, “Obama’s support for Ground Zero mosque” edition

Prez Kick#ss on Friday:

President Barack Obama’s decision to make public comments Friday that further stoked an already brewing controversy over the construction of a mosque near ground zero was “purely” his own, an administration official said Saturday.

B.O. the next day:

“In this country we treat everybody equally and in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion. I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there. I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country is about.”

And then after the pullback, he pulled back the pullback:

An administration official said Obama didn’t change his position on the mosque from Friday to Saturday. Obama believes it’s his job to uphold a fundamental piece of the Constitution that everyone be treated equally under the law, the official said.

The president believes it was appropriate for the board in Manhattan to approve the project near ground zero, the official said, and he was “absolutely not” walking back his remarks from Friday.

“The fair thing to do was to allow this to go forward,” the official said.

So the Community Organizer-in-Chief thought it would be a fine idea to weigh in on the legal right to build a mosque at Ground Zero (a right that few people are arguing), and only the legal right?  I don’t think anyone was talking about the legal right, but the morality or wisdom of building a mosque at a site where 3,000 Americans were slaughtered by nutjobs of the religion that will be commemorated by this mosque.  Besides, no one thinks he was merely speaking of the legal right, but that he was giving an outright endorsement of the idea (his denials to the contrary notwithstanding).  As Jon at Exurban League tweets: “Obama’s statement last night ticked off 70% of the country. His ‘clarification’ today has ticked off the other 30%.”

The Dems are already slated to take a beating in November, and this can’t possibly help.

  1. Obama believes it’s his job to uphold a fundamental piece of the Constitution that everyone be treated equally under the law, the official said.

    Too bad Obama doesn’t believe it’s his job to uphold the ENTIRE Constitution. Instead, he cherry picks the part that will allow our enemies to plant the flag of victory on the graves of fallen Americans.

  2. Muslims are known for building monuments to their victory’s at the site of the victory. Why would anyone think this is anything but. They intend to rub our nose in it and he/she who believes otherwise has his/her head up their butt.

  3. A FREE lot of land was offered this Imam if he would relocate the mosque. He refused. An Islamic peace offering my #ss!

  4. They should build their mosque somewhere else. The nerve of them to build one where a lot of people lost their lives. How insensitive of Obama and this Imam!

  5. Does Obama want to win reelection in 2 years. I normally admire Presidents who stand up for their beliefs; even when it’s not popular. But to be on the unpopular side of every issue. Especially an issue polling at 70 – 30. You can’t find any other subject today that you can get 70% of Americans to agree on, and Obama takes the side of the 30%…At least until his political advisors told him to revise his “Let me make this perfectly clear” opinion.
