Our uber genius, Nobel Prize winning President made no sense at all when he spoke about the Ground Zero mosque.
But oddly, Sarah Palin makes a lot of sense:
Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade. If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive “cross-cultural engagement” and dialogue to show a moderate and tolerant face of Islam, then why haven’t they recognized that the decision to build a mosque at this particular location is doing just the opposite? Mr. President, why aren’t you encouraging the mosque developers to accept Governor Paterson’s generous offer of assistance in finding a new location for the mosque on state land if they move it away from Ground Zero? Why haven’t they jumped at this offer? Why are they apparently so set on building a mosque steps from what you have described, in agreement with me, as “hallowed ground”? I believe these are legitimate questions to ask.
There can be only two possible answers: They intend this mosque to celebrate September 11th as a victory for Islam. Or, they need a place of sanctuary located deep in the financial district from which future attacks may be launched.
Say what you will about Palin, but she grasps the situation far better than Obama.
