This issue is really starting to get old.
Republicans pounced on US President Barack Obama's comments supporting the right to build a mosque near Ground Zero Sunday, painting him as out of touch less than three months before key mid-term elections.
Out of touch? Isn't that what Republicans refer to New Yorkers as? I sense some fake outrage here.
"This is not about freedom of religion, because we all respect the right of anyone to worship according to the dictates of their conscience," US Senator John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, said on Fox News Sunday.
"But I do think it's unwise... to build a mosque at the site where 3,000 Americans lost their lives as a result of a terrorist attack. And I think to me it demonstrates that Washington, the White House, the administration, the president himself seems to be disconnected from the mainstream of America."
Horse-fucking liar! It's two blocks from ground zero. Republicans need to quit pretending they support mainstream America, because they don't.
