Shortly after President Golfbags was inaugurated, NBC’s Matt Lauer asked, “why his family hasn't found a church to attend yet in their new adopted home of Washington, D.C.”
In his lengthy interview that aired on the Today show, as Lauer and Obama strolled down the main White House corridor, Obama blamed how he and Michelle would be “very disruptive to services,” but he's taken advantage of how “there was a prayer circle of pastors from across the country who during the campaign would, would say a prayer for me or send a devotional.” So:
“We've kept that habit up and, and it's a wonderful group because it's a mix of some very conservative pastors, some very liberal pastors, but all who, you know, pray for me and Michelle and, and the girls and, and I get a daily devotional on my BlackBerry which is a, is a wonderful thing.”
To which, an impressed Lauer approved: “Its spirituality meets high-tech! That's pretty good.”
President Barack Hussein Obama on Friday, August 13, 2010 forcefully endorsed building a mosque near Ground Zero, saying the country's founding principles demanded no less.
Rep. Peter King is the first elected official to respond, with this statement:
“President Obama is wrong. It is insensitive and uncaring for the Muslim community to build a mosque in the shadow of Ground Zero. While the Muslim community has the right to build the mosque they are abusing that right by needlessly offending so many people who have suffered so much. The right and moral thing for President Obama to have done was to urge Muslim leaders to respect the families of those who died and move their mosque away from Ground Zero. Unfortunately the President caved into political correctness.”
Jennifer Rubin captures the sentiment of most of America with this comment:
“Obama has shown his true sentiments now, after weeks of concealing them, on an issue of deep significance to not only the families and loved ones of 3,000 slaughtered Americans but of the vast majority of his fellow citizens. He has once again revealed himself to be divorced from the values and concerns of his countrymen. He is entirely—and to too many Americans, horridly—a creature of the left with little ability to make moral distinctions. He sympathies for the Muslim World take precedence over those, such as they are, for his fellow citizens. This is nothing short of an abomination.”
On March 9, 2008, in an interview with New York Times’ Nicholas D. Kristof, Obama said, “…the Muslim call to prayer is “one of the prettiest sounds on earth at sunset”.
Because so many things are scrubbed from the Internet for murky reasons, I have preserved the article which is embedded below.
If the Ground Zero mosque is ever built—it’s scheduled to open on the tenth anniversary of the day a hole was punched in the heart of New York City—then Fearless Reader can jaunt to the mosque on Air Force One and the Muslim World will have won its reign of terror on America.
