This socialist president once again proves how un-American he is.

The Republicans are 100 percent right on this. Only religions approved by government should be allowed in the United States.

They are also right that private property should be subject to government regulation about its use for religious purposes.

Sure it's in bad taste, but when did that ever stop anything from being built in America?

Our founding fathers would be very proud of the fact that we are ignoring the Constitution. Freedom to assemble only applies if you are Christian, right?

Well that all depends on what kind of "Christian" you are.
Only Republican government approved Christians are OK - Unitarians are out. Mormons are out. Catholics are out (that social justice thing). People who believe in evolution are out.

If they build this trophy for the fallen terrorist I hope someone gives to them what they gave to us at the towers.
You have to wonder why the person who posted this hates America so much?

Did you grow up under Communism where the government says what you can believe?
Are you a North Korean where you've got to follow the great dictator?

What part of Freedom of Religion don't you understand?
No religion

In America, at least while the Democrats are in charge - it is NEVER in bad taste to practice your religion.

The Republicans seem to be on the verge of instituting a state-sponsored religion.

Pay attention dumb dumb. YOUR presidunce is supporting ONE religion... MUSLIM. No president has the authority to support any religion... NOR does he have the authroity to denounce or defame any relgion.

Your narcissitic lib muslim puppet refused to acknowlege a Christian day of prayer.. even going so far as to cover anything that was resembling a Christian symbol, so as not to offend his muslim brothers. Then he turns around and celebrates the Muslim day of prayer. Still there dumb dumb?

As for this latest fiasco (basically the nail in his political coffin) has him stating that he is doing this to reach out to his muslim brothers across the world... read the article dumb dumb... this is what HE said.

IF this monstrosity to the fallen muslim hero's (read TERRORIST) gets built, I hope that someone does to it what they did to the trade center... hopefully you and many like you will be there if it happens.

Name a president that in the last 50 years has come out in favor of one religion of any other? Oh wait... there is only your lib muslim puppet Barry Sotero. Last time I checked he was definately NOT a republican.

Do you ever tire of being so stupid?

I think you misread what he was saying.
This mosque is in poor taste AND many Muslim leaders have agreed! Tell what benefit it brings to that community? It not about freedom of religion. Within a city churches are told all the time where they can and cannot build. First, this is about location and it is a slap in the face to all of those who lost someone that day. The second slap comes because the leader of this group refuses to acknowledge some of the group and backers ties to this mosque as terrorists.

Somewhere folks have lost our founding fathers beliefs about this country. They did NOT set it to be a free for all. People just don't want to be told "no" anymore.

Oh.....and I simply cannot wait to hear every Democrat candidate's response to what will now be a regular campaign question:

"Do you agree with President Obama on the Ground Zero Mosque?"

Let the squirming begin.

Islam is NOT a religion! Islam is a coordinated effort to establish a world caliphate that will impose sharia law as rulers choose. Religion is a part of Islam ~~ but Islam is not a religion!

The Constitution of the United States is not a suicide pact. It guarantees freedom of religion and freedom from religion. It also demands the POTUS defend the nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Islam is a "foreign enemy" of our Constitution and our freedoms. BHO is the Islamic version of the Trojan Horse ~~ he is tearing down our nation from within and welcoming sworn enemies from without!

November is coming.

Perhaps it's too early but I don't see the people who are against this doing much more than talking. Has "civil disobedience" been bred of of the American populace? Where are the balloons filled with pig blood? The pig fat throwers? The bacon grease smearers?

I would love to have seen Obama make this announcement in Times Square, say,...as opposed to a room filled with Muslim sycophants and terrorists.

He will hear America in November.
And it won't be applause.

I agree with November is coming. which is good to a point. what i mean lets say Rep. win's majority both House and Senate. which is great. it will be a "stall session" for 2 years. Whatever House or Senate puts up approves Obama will Veto. whatever Obama wants it will get voted down. I know you're saying well 2/3's majority. I believe in the Rep. party but to win 25 MORE seats (plus all the Rep. maintain their seats) thats asking for a lot. I could see Rep. picking up 10 maybe 15(at best) 25 no way.

It takes courage to defend the Constitution when it is unpopular to do so.
