Obama undaunted by fallout from mosque remarks
AP ^ | August 17 2010 | BEN FELLER

Posted on 08/17/2010 11:48:34 AM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE — President Barack Obama isn't worried about the furor unleashed by his comments on a planned mosque near Ground Zero, a spokesman said Tuesday.

He's also not dismayed that the Senate's top Democrat, Majority Leader Harry Reid, now opposes the idea, deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said.

"This is an issue people are going to come to with strongly held convictions," Burton told reporters aboard Air Force One, as Obama flew to an appearance in Seattle. "He's happy our thriving democracy is continuing to produce vigorous debate."

A good portion of the vigorous debate has been between Friday Soebarkah and Saturday Soebarkah.

Someone prominent needs to stand up and shout the truth about this mosque, to “help” the unwashed masses see it even more clearly.

This is a VICTORY MOSQUE. Muslims build mosques on CONQUERED TERRITORY. Even the name “Park51” is a reference to this practice.

He’s been on relaxed vacation mode since Nov ‘08 because he’s been on vacation since Nov ‘08. When it’s done he’ll blow off Arlington Nat’l Cemetary, The Boy Scouts, the 9/11 anniversary and Christmas to cut the ribbon.

Obama didn’t consider the politics of his remarks!?

Hegelian dialectic:

Pit two or more groups against each other.
Agitate to the point of conflict.
Step in with more state control to solve the conflict.

Rinse and repeat.

Park51 is the name of the proposed ground zero mosque.

Or did you know that and wonder why they chose that name?

He would be even happier if a civil war started.

I don't think so!!!

His Rasmussen poll rating fell 2 more points after he blithered and blathered about it.

Thats "daunted."

I was corn-fused.

It’s actually the former name “Cordoba project” that was such a reference:

“The Cordoba Mosque was the third largest mosque complex in the world ... built on the site of a former Christian church, to commemorate the Muslim conquest of Spain. This perpetuated a cultural Muslim practice of building mosques on the sites of historic conquests.”

Park51 evidently has some gematria going on with it that indicates a victory mosque. Inquiring minds want to know.

*He's happy our thriving democracy is continuing to produce vigorous debate.*

He's happy our thriving democracy is rapidly becoming a communist totalitarian dictatorship on it's way to becoming an Islamic state ruled by sharia law and he would like to continuing to produce stifle vigorous debate through means of controlling radio, the Internet and making another stab at the Stasi-esque something 'fishy' emails .

There, fixed it.

They could build the mosque at ground zero and the other zero could cut the ribbon and there’d still be 40% or more supporting this muslim.

What do they mean UNDAUNTED?? Didn't he take them back not 24 hrs. after he made them?

Apparently that's being "undaunted" to the AP. And Mika Brzezinski.

I pray a reporter will ask Gibbs “What did the president have for lunch today?” I promise he’d stutter like never before trying to come up with an answer. The he’d say “He skipped breakfast this morning and will skip all meals during ramadan. He’s doing this to show respect to the muslims of this nation.”

Ah, yes, thank you for the clarification.

The Hagia Sophia in Constantinople, the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, and the Cordoba Mosque in Spain—are all testament to Islam’s “in-your-face” doctrine of conquest.

The fact the Ground Zero Mosque is named the “Cordoba Project” simply bears this out.

Of course he’s undaunted. This event is just another example of how this ‘manchild’ lives completely isolated within his own small delusional bubble. The man does not care what anyone says or warns, he will do what he wants to do, damn the results or fallout.

Weren’t there quite a few Canadians, Brits, in the Twin Towers?

Plenty to be pissed off about—that is the Muslim attack on “us.”

In the below video Stephenopolis jumped in to correct him, but this admission was stated strongly and clearly to have been just a mistake.

"He's happy our thriving democracy is continuing to produce vigorous debate."

Dumbing the public down enough to believe this nation is a "democracy" is key to his arrogance.

His minions are quietly chipping away at the Electoral College which keeps us from the mob rule Socialists who take from those who earn it and give to those who don't depend upon for their power...until they run out of OPM, of course.

Yeah, right...like I believe that crap; the AP is such an apologist crowd for the Won.

"Undaunted" people don't run out and scramble to 'clarify' his/her remarks like he did...this thin-skinned, narcisstic MF is falling all over himself to cover this one up.

A lot of his lefty comrads are really pissed at him about this gaffe.

If you listen to his original speech at the White House rahmadan dinner, you can tell oblammo is well schooled in the ways of islam...he's one of them.

Does anyone know if the White House has a "passover" dinner, or an "Easter dinner"? Seems to me that is a violation of their beloved "separation of Church and State" fanaticism. Where's the cross-burning, Ten Commandment censoring ACLU in all of this...either islam is a religion, or it isn't.

If it is a religion, then the government should back off from it...if it is NOT a religion, then they DON'T have a right to build the mosque near the GZ site.

The Constitution wasn't composed in Microsoft Word...you can't "cut and paste" it to suit your current needs.

THIS IS OUT AND OUT WAR, FOLKS.

THIS BASTARD SOCIALIST/MUSLIM MUST BE CRUSHED.

SEND OUT EVERY ARTICLE YOU FIND WITH OBAMA’S SUPPORT OF MUSLIMS/MOSQUES TO EVERYONE AND ANYONE YOU KNOW. SEND OUT VIDEOS OF EVERY OBAMA COMMENT ON SOCIALISM, MUSLIMS, MOSQUES TO EVERYONE AND ANYONE YOU KNOW.

THE WORD MUST GET OUT TO EVERYONE...EITHER WE STAND UP AGAINST THE SOCIALIST/MUSLIM ENEMY FIGHTING US ON OUR OWN SHORES, OR WE ARE DOOMED TO BOW TO THEM.

SO, WHICH IS IT?

WE WOULD NOT HAVE HAD TO THINK TWICE AS TO WHAT OUR ANSWER WOULD HAVE BEEN IN WORLD WAR II, WHEN THE JAPANESE BOMBED PEARL HARBOUR. MEN AND WOMEN LINED UP TO SIGN UP AND FIGHT. MOTHERS, CHILDREN AND SENIOR SENIORS WERE THE BOOTS ON THE GROUND AT HOME AND WORKED TOGETHER IN ANY AND EVERY WAY POSSIBLE TO LEND SUPPORT AND FIGHT THE ENEMY.

KEEP POUNDING AWAY AT THESE DAMNED SOCIALISTS AND MUSLIMS IN EVERY WAY YOU CAN. SAVE THIS COUNTRY FROM DESTRUCITON WITH EVERYTHING YOU’VE GOT. ORGANIZE WITH RELATIVES, FRIENDS, NEIGHBORS, ORGANIZATIONS AND PUSH FORWARD...WORK YOUR FINGERS AND BACKS TO THE BONE IF NECESSARY...WE-ARE-AT-WAR!

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND ALL WHO LOVE HER.
