We knew the Mosque issue was going to be all over the news.

Morning Joe has been a shield in front of the president all Morning vocally defending the president without hesitation on the NY Mosque issue.

But defense is not enough so they decided to counterattack, however Who they choose to attack says a lot about what they think.

This weekend on on Facebook Sarah Palin said this:

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.

A clear, lucid statement from one of the leading contenders if not THE leading contender for the Republican Nomination in 2012. A person who was on a National Ticket just 2 years ago.

Normally Sarah Palin means views and hits so naturally they would be injecting her whenever possible…

…but this statement would win votes, so we can’t have that.

Instead they are going after Newt Gingrich for saying it is like “putting a Swastika next to the Holocaust museum” (they don’t manage to quote him saying: “There should be no mosque near Ground Zero in New York so long as there are no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia.” too many people would get that), and are touting him both as a voice of intolerance and as the republican front runner.

Let’s cut to the chase. Newt Gingrich is no more going to be the Republican nominee in 2012 that I am. These people know this, but pretend otherwise.

This is simply political cover, cover for Obama’s statements and covering up Sarah Palin’s statements so a weak White House doesn’t have to respond.

    A weak White House doesn’t have to respond??? Sorry, don’t buy it. The White House does not respond because they, like responsible adults that they are, know that adding fuel to fire during times we are living now would be just the WRONG thing to do.

    Palin is a very dangerous woman, a drama queen who is enjoying the attention and enjoying disrespecting the president with jealous, childish jabs. She deserves our laughter and should just be ignored. THAT is what the White House is doing.

    Great observation!
    They really do think out the cards they play for and against Sarah Palin…

    Is that show still getting their talking points directly from the White House every morning? And is that legal to do so?

    A “Weak White House?” Why in h*ll should the White House respond to these comments at all? This is not a national issue…it is a New York City issue. Had the President jumped in and condemned the mosque weeks ago, the right would have been all over him for trying to butt into states rights. As it is, Sarah Palin is butting into everything she can get her horns into, hoping that she remains in the news cycle for another day. Anyone who thinks that this divisive woman who still refuses to be interviewed anywhere not Fox, and anytime she doesn’t have prepared answers can be President is delusional. President Obama is about to END the combat in Iraq. End a war. Her sniping is so unimportant compared to what he is doing for the betterment of this country. We are either a country of laws that abides by the current Constitution, or we are a country swayed by the religious rantings of a woman who believes in witches, who thinks the country should be governed by the 10 commandments as interpreted by HER, and who has done such a great job with her kids she should be ashamed.

    Sheesh – I think you hit a nerve.

    If Palin does become an elected official in federal government, I think I will buy stock in Valium, Kentucky Bourbon, or both.
