    VINEYARD HAVEN, Mass. — The White House says President Barack Obama will have no further comment on the mosque near Ground Zero in New York and the administration will not get involved in talks about relocating the controversial facility. Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton was asked about the issue Tuesday at a White House press briefing. He replied, "No, and no" to the questions of whether Obama would weigh in further, or whether the White House would have a role in discussions about moving the mosque.

    I guess this was inevitable. The proposed Lower Manhattan mosque has received the Taiwanese CGI video treatment. (snip) In the meantime, take a little breather with the Taiwanese version, complete with Burkini Blanket Bingo, President Barack Hussein Obama, Greg’s Ground Zero Gay Bar, and the cabbie stabber. These Taiwanese people work fast!

    The Stump Report ^ | John C. Drew Ph.D.
    I’m been driving around this week with a burning question in my mind: Why would President Obama support a Ground Zero Mosque (GZM) when it is opposed by 2/3rds of the American people? Given the unpopularity of this mosque, it is as if the driver of the Democrat party’s new limo has just steered it into a junk yard crushing machine. I think the simplest answer is that Obama was being loyal to his Muslim-American base…not to African-Americans…not to his Democrat party…and not to the American people. I have found some supporting evidence for this thesis in an article in...

    Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but it can erode credibility, particularly if the imitators are old enough to know better. “The cleric who wants to build a mosque and Islamic center near Ground Zero claims that ideas from his book were incorporated into President Obama’s landmark Cairo address to the Muslim world last year by one of the drafters of the speech,” Patrick Goodenough reported on CNSNews.com. “Feisal Abdul Rauf made the remarks during two media interviews in Egypt last February.” “I am not going to hide from you that one of those who participated in writing...

    Agence France-Presse ^ | August 29, 2010
    US President Barack Obama blamed a "network of misinformation" for keeping alive persistent rumors that he is Muslim, but he shrugged off the misconception as being out of his control. "There is a mechanism, a network of misinformation, that in a new media era can get churned out there constantly," Obama said in an interview with NBC television. He said the recurring controversy was something he will not allow himself to spend too much time on, however. "I'm not going to be worrying too much about whatever rumors are floating out there," Obama said. "If I spend all my time...

    The San Francisco Examiner ^ | August 29, 2010 | Matthew Sheffield
    In political debates, liberals often accuse conservatives of saying that liberals hate America. This was particularly common as the left in this country began turning firmly against the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq. Dissenting from the policies of the ruling Republicans, according to the left, was not just a political opinion, it was really an act of patriotism. With Barack Obama as president, that line of argument has gone the way of the dodo on questions of foreign policy but the attitude behind it is manifesting itself in the debate over the propriety of the proposed Islamic cultural center/mosque near...

    * I cannot believe that Speaker Nancy Pelosi is calling for an investigation in funding of the mosque opponents ("Pelosi's Poison," Editorial, Aug. 19). If anyone started a political firestorm, it was President Obama -- who, when addressing a Muslim group, said that the mosque should be built as a matter of religious freedom. Then he backtracked the next day, when he realized the uproar that this caused. Will Pelosi also investigate her Senate counterpart, Harry Reid, who said it should not be built?

    Reasoning With Radicals The New York Times featured an opinion article praising Obama and his understanding of Constitutional Law. It certainly beat the stuffing out of that straw man. No one with any sense thinks Muslims don't have the right to build a mosque on private property. As many commentators and the President have pointed out, the controversy is over the “wisdom” of placing the community center so close to where many lost their lives to radicals in the name of Islam. I don't think the placement a wise choice. If the purpose of the community center is to open...

    National Review ^ | Andrew c. McCarthy
    The real battle for religious freedom lurks beneath the Ground Zero mosque controversy. It is sadly ironic that our public debate presents the mosque proponents as the partisans of liberty: That includes everyone from imam Feisal Rauf, the project’s sharia-touting sponsor, to President Obama, Mayor Bloomberg, and the rest of the Islamist-smitten Left, to the GOP’s own anti-anti-terrorist wing. Yet, wittingly or not, when they champion this mosque and its sponsors, it is the agenda of an alien and authoritarian Islam that they champion — an Islam against which many American Muslims chafe. When it comes to liberty, no one...

    THE “ground zero mosque,” as you may well know by now, is not at ground zero. It’s not a mosque but an Islamic cultural center containing a prayer room. It’s not going to determine President Obama’s political future or the elections of 2010 or 2012. Still, the battle that has broken out over this project in Lower Manhattan — on the “hallowed ground” of a shuttered Burlington Coat Factory store one block from the New York Dolls Gentlemen’s Club — will prove eventful all the same. And the consequences will be far more profound than any midterm election results or...

    ... Both Imam Rauf and President Obama have earned the right to weigh in as leaders on the building of a cultural center and place of worship near Ground Zero; and they both have a responsibility to do so. President Obama is the leader of the nation that is currently engaged in two wars that followed in the wake of the tragic events of 9/11. It is crucial that this nation's Commander-in-Chief continually remind this nation that those wars are against institutions and organizations that had a hand in the attacks of 9/11, not against Muslims. As President Obama has...

    Today, Eric Wargotz M.D., a candidate for the United States Senate, called on Congress and the President to immediately make "Ground Zero" a National Historic Site. This new proposal from Commissioner Wargotz comes on the heels of President Obama's remarks supporting a mosque being built at "Ground Zero" in New York City. "Ground Zero is a sacred site. For a mosque to be created at "Ground Zero" is a travesty and must be stopped. The families of those killed on September 11th should not be forced to endure the hardship a mosque at that location would create." Wargotz said. The...

    St. Louis blogger, Sharp Elbows, videotaped an effort to get Democratic Congressman Russ Carnahan on record about his position on the Ground Zero mosque during a Town hall meeting with veterans in his home district. Carnanhan repeatedly ignores his constituent and finally leaves the building and heads for parking lot and has vehicle at a fast pace. I think from Caranahan's non-answer, we might safely assume he joins President Obama in supporting the Ground Zero mosque construction. The video can be seen here.
