Need More Proof?

Do we need more proof that the "top" priorities of Congress and this administration are so upside down and completely out of step with the rest of the country? When you have the Speaker of the House saying this
"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded"
Who exactly is she joining? Secondly while I agree this has become a political football, she is WAY off thinking this is some concerted funded effort. This started back in May as a local NY issue, I commented about it at that time, and it was basically just covered in dailies here in the NY/NJ area. What really sent it national in my opinion was the ridiculous photo op speech that Mayor Nanny Bloomberg gave using the Statue of Liberty as the backdrop. It kind of mushroomed from there with everyone weighing in across the country. I give a lot of credit to Pamela Geller of the atlasshrugs blog for keeping the pressure on locally with the Community Board in lower Manhattan, and then taking to the news shows with her concerns over Imam Feisal Rauf. She is a tireless writer/activist exposing the bull of certain Muslim "moderates" along with  CAIR and I applaud her for that.

Another issue most Democrats are finding themselves on the wrong side, and by wrong I mean 70-30 wrong according to polls, is the illegal immigration law in Arizona. Suing a state for enforcing a federal law the federal government has no intent of that? The suit is two things, logically specious and racial pandering. Then today news comes that they are ready to do this. Expending all of this energy instead of focusing on the root cause of the illegal immigration problem. That being our continuing policies of no border enforcement and not talking about assimilation, which has always been the route to success for immigrant groups. We have become so sensitive to cultural concerns that we never talk about what it is to be American. You could say that is the reason liberals on a whole support the mosque and tip-toe around every issue regarding Muslims. What? You think all of a sudden liberals are interested in property rights arguments? Or the fact our Attorney General can't call a terrorist, a radical islamist? And if you disagree with their approach you are a bigot. It's a joke. I find myself agreeing with Erick Erickson, that maybe liberals are finally realizing that they are the ones who are "fringe".
