WASHINGTON - Democrats complain they were blindsided when President Obama weighed in on the Ground Zero mosque and handed the GOP a new club to beat them with.
White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel has spent three days on the phone doing damage control with angry Democrats and urging them not to go public against the President, Democratic sources said.
Obama went ahead with the Ramadan dinner remarks even though his top political advisers had not reached a consensus on what he should do. Emanuel was one of the skeptics.

Keeeeep talkin’, Bozo. LOL! You’re doin’ JUST fine.
If the RATs got blindsided, it’s because they’re blind. Or stupid. (I know, it’s not really an either/or thing.)
his top advisors had not reached consensus on what he should do?
Throwing his aides under the bus....
Isn’t this the first time the United States has supported a cult?
Any Democrat who wants a chance of getting re-elected needs to distance himself from Obama. Based on their voting record it may already be too late, but this latest is probably the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.
Haha, this is great news. One would want to say Barry “acted stupidly” but I agree, he’s doing just fine. Pass the popcorn!
Oh, BS they didn’t know. They’re pissed because the public came out against it. If polls said otherwise, they’d be all over it, jumping for joy.
“... his top political advisers had not reached a consensus on what he should do. Emanuel was one of the skeptics.”
Rahm - Nay
Axelrod - Nay?
Jarrett - Yea?
Gibbs - Yea?
That would be nice if I could believe it. However, I am at the point now that I do not believe anything ANY Liberal says! Period!
The left is always pissed when “the veil” slips and reveals the truth about their beliefs.
They were only “blindsided” because they didn’t expect him to slip like that.
Cat fight, I suspect. Delicious. *evil grin*
It's a cult.
Like they didn’t already know he is a Muslim?? Sure!
Aw stop it!
I 'm getting all misty
and the wheels on the bus go round and round........the dems don’t seem to understand, their leader does not give a damn about them, its all about him, it always has been.
if all of those Democrats listened to Barry’s Cairo speech and still did not expect this, they are even DUMBER than I think they are (as if that is even possible)
