    Reid against plan to build mosque near ground zero

    WASHINGTON – The Senate's top Democrat on Monday came out against plans to build a mosque near the site of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, moving away from President Barack Obama on the controversial election-year issue.

    Nope...I think it's a bipartisan issue. But they are all wrong. IMO.

    Reid could care less about the mosque or where it's built. He's just saying shit that he thinks will get him a few more votes in November.

    I don't know if I'm necessarily against the leftys, but the SNs should move the fucking mosque out of Lower Manhatten. Its that 45% of muslims celebrate 9/11. That wouldn't work at ground zero. Anyone remember them celebrating at the Giants Stadium?

    Could there be a more obvious Attempt to buy some votes in November. I do not believe for one min he really feels that way. I think he just knows most Americans do and wants to suck up a bit.

    Reid is desperate. He'll say anything to get re-elected. I seriously doubt he really feels this way. He's a shallow liar. He has a long history of being so. I'll remain skeptical.

    This is one of those rare times that the issue is cutting through both parties to some extent.

    I've mentioned my position. Let them do what they want. If it's just a politicla statement, then they want the attention. If they are attempting to worship as they choose then its none of my business.

    It's incredibly insensitive. But thankfully we have the freedom of religion in this nation. Id rather be overinclusive than under inclusive.

    However, if any of the people have questionable pasts, investigate non-stop.
