Obama tried it and came out looking like a fool, first by endorsing the mosque and then saying that the endorsement was only for the First Amendment. How clever. But we already knew where Obama stood before he put his foot in his mouth; he always takes the side of the Muslims over that of Americans, whether in his outrageous apologies for the crimes he imagines we’ve committed against Islam, or by his doling out our tax money to fund the terrorist group Hamas.
But now we have an opportunity to do what Democrats have done for years; politicize an issue to force the Democrats to pay a price. Remember when in 2005 and 2006 Reid and Pelosi declared that the war in Iraq was lost? And they did so – in contravention of the facts, and to the detriment of our soldiers actually fighting the war – only as a means to reinstall themselves in power? Now it’s a different story—those of us who force Democrats to admit publicly who they really are must be investigated.
How about this? How about before we investigate the funding behind the opposition to the mosque, we investigate the funding of the anti-war movement on which Pelosi, Reid and Obama rode to power? Political gain from politicizing an issue may be right or it may be wrong, depending on the issue. In this case, the political gain might actually save the country from the Democrats.
