    it's so rare that i agree with anything from the president of obama, but i have to agre with what he said about the mosque, he has it right. i don't know if there are people who still think that it's a legal issue.
    they could claim it as urban blight and drive them out of the neighborhood, like how the new york times (benedict arnold gazzette) got their building. the new eminet domain. it would be wrong. that having been said, the new mosque will always be a target for stupid people. it will always have spraypaint on it and it will make the neighborhood a lot less safe.
    they have every right to build on private property, whatever they like.
    is it poor judgement? yes it is. a show of sensitivity would endear the islamic faith, more than would the act of flying in the face of 911, and upseting the bulk of the population.
    there are ways to compromise, the longer they try to do it against the will of the people, the more it looks as if their motives may be intentioally provocative.
    actually that captures the direction and sprit of obama's governing style, there's an analogy for you.

    If the Big 0 had included what you say above which I hi-lited in red, he would have been correct. By leaving this part out, he is once again bowing to our enemies.

    His statement should have been in line with the old saying that goes along the lines of, "I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

    Goodness Gracious! We all know that they have the right to build this thing. I hope that others exercise the same right and build Boobie Bars on either side of it along with a victims of 9/11 kiosk right out front displaying the faces, names and religion of all of the 9/11 terrorists.

    The First Amendment is a wonderful thing. I hope that everyone takes full advantage of it.

    Ham for everyone!

    and other entrepreneur have the right to open a gay bar next to the mosque, and a strip club on the other side. If people have to be soooo tolerant of muslims then muslims should be tolerant of others too!

    you know people keep on forgetting that Muslims died on 9/11 too. and there Muslims firefighters on the scene helping people when the twin towers got knocked down. so Muslims suffered on this day as well.

    and like many American Muslims like myself I hated what al qaida did on that day. it disgusts me that they thought what they were doing was an act of greatness.

    if Christians and Jews are allowed to build their places of worship near ground zero why aren't Muslims allowed to? just because a couple of whack jobs decided to fly planes into the towers does that mean all Muslims are like that?

    We have a right just like any other American to build our places of worship where we like just like other people of faith do.

    that's what makes people from all over the world come to this nations because of the religious freedom that is here.

    how are they a-holes for doing so?

    people are such hypocrites if this was a church or synagogue we wouldn't even know about it. but since it's a mosque Muslims are being insensitive?

    so, by that reasoning, no christian church should go up near the oklahoma federal building, because a Christian committed the crime?
