The First Amendment protects freedom of religion. Senator Reid respects that but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else. If the Republicans are being sincere, they would help us pass this long overdue bill to help the first responders whose health and livelihoods have been devastated because of their bravery on 911, rather than continuing to block this much-needed legislation.Jesus wept. Allah too, for that matter.
Raise your hand if you think this will stop Sharron Angle and the GOP from attacking Harry Reid on national security issues or if you think this will get the GOP to stop blocking the 9/11 first responders assistance bill.
I have certain experiments in subliminal techniques I need to conduct on susceptible individuals. Greg concludes:
Literally seconds after Reid's statement hit the wire, Republicans blasted out a press release mocking the Dem disarray on this issue with this tagline: "Great moments in August Democratic Messaging." This just makes the Dems look weak, unorganized, cowardly, and unwilling to take a stand for principles they plainly believe in.Well Greg, that's because in Harry Reid's case all of that is true.
