Palin to Obama on Ground Zero Mosque: "This Is Not Above Your Pay Grade"

Palin to Obama on Ground Zero Mosque: "This Is Not Above Your Pay Grade" BY John McCormack August 14, 2010 6:58 PM

Sarah Palin responds to the president's comments on the Ground Zero mosque:

Mr. President, should they or should they not build a mosque steps away from where radical Islamists killed 3000 people? Please tell us your position. We all know that they have the right to do it, but should they? And, no, this is not above your pay grade. If those who wish to build this Ground Zero mosque are sincerely interested in encouraging positive "cross-cultural engagement" and dialogue to show a moderate and tolerant face of Islam, then why haven't they recognized that the decision to build a mosque at this particular location is doing just the opposite? Mr. President, why aren't you encouraging the mosque developers to accept Governor Paterson's generous offer of assistance in finding a new location for the mosque on state land if they move it away from Ground Zero? Why haven't they jumped at this offer? Why are they apparently so set on building a mosque steps from what you have described, in agreement with me, as "hallowed ground"? I believe these are legitimate questions to ask.

He said what he meant, and he meant what he said.

The only reason his henchmen are backpedaling is because his poll numbers took a BIG hit!

0bama is a lying POS muslim.

And why name it “Cordoba?” It isn’t named after the K-car Chrysler hyped by Ricardo Montalban in the 70’s. It is named after the last stronghold of the Moors in Spain, from which they were finally evicted. It is a re-conquest name choice. It isn’t a community center with a chapel.

Hussein doesn't know what “above my pay grade” means. It was a weaselly nonsense line slipped to him by one of his weasel bosses.

He made his American hating supporters happy with his initial response, now that he is qualifying what he said they of course are not listening anymore and are blind to his back peddling.

It is rather interesting their strong headed stance of building it there. Why not else where ? I firmly believe the mosque is a sick internal did you get the memo victory dance.

Many muslim leaders say how they feel when speaking to their own, and then turn around and lie when speaking to we infidels.

Their cult (Islam) not only permits it, but encourages it.

It is my understanding that there is another Muslim Mosque only one block away from this proposed one. Do they really need two Mosques in a two block area.

No. This is spitting in the face of America.

Tough position for union workers.

Their leadership blindly supports 0bama, but I think the rank and file does not want to help build this insult to their murdered fellow New Yorkers.

In the end, I fear the “cult of personality” (0bama) will win out.

"Above my pay grade" was an expression used several times by Ollie North during the Senate Iran-Contra hearings. Ollie made fools of the Democrat senators trying to get to Reagan through North.

Sarah is right. Zerobama can't use this excuse; he is paid to be the point at which the buck stops.

I would be surprised if the thing ever sees the light of day. I can imagine it will suffer all sorts of setbacks, and construction problems from day one. It will be unbelievably over budget, over schedule, and probably wired to explode.

Pieces of the puzzle: (and this isn’t above anybody’s pay grade)

1. The Obamas can’t seem to find a Christian Church to attend (the ones that hate the US and allow white Christians just can’t make it past his advisors).

2. We all know his birth certificate exists, but he is totally invested in keeping Barack Hussein Obama’s secret.

3. Bowing to Islamic royalty.

4. The tough sanctions imposed on Tehran by Congress last month were approved against his will. Everybody knows Iran will give a bomb to Islamist terrorists when they have it.

5. Insistence on telling Muslim enemies the dates the US will withdraw from the battlefield.

6. “It’s conceivable,” said then-presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008, “that there are those in the Arab world who say to themselves, ‘This is a guy who spent some time in the Muslim world, has a middle name of Hussein, and appears more worldly and has called for talks with people, and so he’s not going to be engaging in the same sort of cowboy diplomacy as George Bush.’”

This could go on and on. When the puzzle is finished it’s obvious that we have a Muslim President who doesn’t much like the USA. Remember, Islam is all about inserting itself into government and dictatorship. Since the “leader of the free world” can’t find anything negative to say about Islam...well...can you say “Manchurian?”

Some wisdom here from Calvin Coolidge...it’s best to just stay back and out of affairs that don’t require your services. If the house isn’t burning...don’t get involved.

And if this was the 1920's it might be a little more relevent.

But I think we're way past that point.

Actually, I believe it is named after Cordoba because that was the first foothold the Moors(Muslims) won in Spain; thus the Cordoba in NYC is the symbol of the Muslims first victory in their war to conquer the US. THAT reason is why they should not be allowed to gloat and recruit with a Muslim victory monument at Ground Zero.

I kind of like her line of questioning. Why tone it down...I’m sick and tired of the PC crap that is destroying our Country. We need leaders that will say what they mean and mean what they say and TO HELL with the PC CRAP.

Any birther comments are pulled by SP’s fb team, along with various other topics, including those that over-praise SP. She wants to keep that page mainstream.

My bad, although it was the K-car era. What really mattered was the "corinthian leather."

You may be more right on the history than I am. Cordoba is in southern Spain, about 100 miles NNE of Gibraltar. A quick web glance shows that Cordoba was a major Muslim metropolis for hundreds of years, and the site of a Great Mosque. Maybe that's the motive--once something is in the Dar-al-Islam, its never supposed to leave. I agree on the gloat motive.

Let me put it differently. What mattered to me was Ricardo’s pronunciation of “Corinthian leather.” I didn’t expect quality, I just enjoyed the commercial.

It has nothing to do with the car. “PearsBeforeSwine” was correct in #4. It has to do with Cordoba, Spain. To a muslim it is a battle cry, just as “Remember the Alamo” or “Remember Pearl Harbor” is to an American. The building of that mosque, if it happens, will be a “victory lap” commemorating 9-11.
