Obama Condemns Everyone – Except Terrorists

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

This weekend, President Obama pulled a John Kerry. First, he supported building the Ground Zero mosque. Then, trying desperately to distance himself from his own words, he claimed he was only dealing with the vague constitutional generalities of the case. He implausibly insisted:

My intention was to simply let people know what I thought, which was that in this country we treat everyone equally, in accordance with the law, regardless of race, regardless of religion. I was not commenting, and will not comment, on the wisdom of making a decision to put a mosque there. I was commenting very specifically on the right that people have that dates back to our founding. That’s what our country’s about, and I think it’s very important that, as difficult as some of these issues are, that we stay focused on who we are as a people and what our values are all about.

Ah, he wasn’t dissecting the 9/11 mosque’s “wisdom.” This sudden reticence strikes me as strange. This is practically the only issue whose wisdom our blogger-in-chief has not publicly evaluated.

He had no trouble saying the Cambridge police were “acting stupidly” by arresting Henry Louis Gates last summer, although he acknowledged he did not have “all the facts” before he spoke. He had no problem calling the Gulf oil leak “the worst environmental disaster America has ever faced” more-or-less the instant it erupted. (We should hope he was right, since the vast majority of spilled oil has been dispersed, evaporated, or removed with minimal reported damage.) He found great wisdom in passing a stimulus bill that would never allow unemployment to reach the rate…it already has reached. His administration accused GM officials of playing chicken with the government in order to get a better bailout deal, with Obama advising them, Chicago-style, he was making an offer they couldn’t refuse.

He has certainly not shied away from controversies involving the wisdom of our relations with the Islamic world in the past. He cemented his national political career with a 2003 antiwar speech that called the invasion of Iraq a “dumb” war (certainly a wisdom-based claim). He said that alleged, undocumented excesses at Guantanamo Bay did not meet our national security objectives and accused his own country of torture. Publicly stating interrogators tortured innocent Muslims could subject U.S. soldiers to the International Criminal Court, an international institution he supports.

Meanwhile, he thought it wise to remove the word “terrorism” from the federal lexicon altogether, replacing it for some time with the phrase “man-caused disaster.”

Somehow, the idea of building a skyscraper mosque on Ground Zero is the only topic whose wisdom Obama has not addressed, the only topic that has not outraged him to the point of speaking out against it.

With his legendary thin skin, history of lashing out at everyone who crosses him, and passive aggressive defense of those hostile to the United States, one can only guess why.

    HERE HE GOES AGAIN SPEAKING OUT OF BOTH SIDES OF HIS MOUTH. NOW, WHEN IT IS IN HIS MUSLIM BELIEF BEST INTERESTS HE CITES THE CONSTITUTION FOR THE MOSQUE. HE IS ABSOLUTELY BIZAAR HES DEFIED THE CONSTIRUTION IN ALL RESPECTS DOESN'T SO FAR DOESN'T ANYONE ELSE SEE THIS?

    IT'S TIME FOR THE AMERICANS TO REALLY GET RID OF THIS BIG EARED ,BLUE LIPPED HALFBREED LIAR AND TRAITOR. THE OATH OF OFFICE TO THIS TWO-BIT SOUTH CHICAGO THUG MEANS NOTHING TO HIM.

    HE IS SO NARCISTIC AND ARROGANT HE DOESN'T THINK THAT THE AVERAGE AMERICAN RFMEMBERS WHAT HE SAID AT HIS INAUGERATION OR IN HIS CAMPAIGN SPEECHES

    ONCE THE TRUTH EMERGES ABOUT HIS BIRTH PLACE AND INELIGIBLILITY TO BE PRESIDENT IT LOOKS LIKE HE MIGHT BE ELIGIBLE FOR PRISON.

  2. Wonder if this dumb scumbag knows that the average American really don't give a damn what he thinks about anything. I really don't find the fool to be qualified to be thinking. Every time he does think you can smell wood burning and he weakens this great nation that much more.

    • problem is, he has pens, and he signs anything anti-American that this Communist-controlled Congress sends his way

  3. We're wise to "OOO"s games and we're not buying it. Now we really know who he is and what he's about, endorsing this CONQUEST of a mosque at ground zero.

  4. Are you familiar with George Soros? George Soros is an advisor to Obama and is, according to the net, the 13th richest man in the world…not the U.S….the world. Soros was born in a foreign country, just as Obama. Soros was born a Jew, but he hates the Jews. Soros thinks it is wrong for the United States to have a stronger military than other countries. Soros spent multi-millions to help get Obama elected and a group financed by Soros is backing Obama's current nominee for the Supreme Court. Don't take my word for any of this. Type in ether "The Man Who Broke the Bank of England" or the name George Soros and find out the history of this man and you will see he and Obama think alike. I saw a cartoon recently on the net that showed Soros holding the strings with Obama as a puppet. You may see this if you research the man.

  5. Q: What do you do if you see five Muslims up to their waists in concrete?
    A: Pour more concrete.

  6. As always, playing to his internationalist audience. You know. The ones from whom he ILLEGALLY accepted millions of campaign dollars.

  7. "excreta". Sorry, I didn't mean to misspell THAT one.

    Interesting, the Great One would say the Muslim Religion has a right as all religions to express theirselves in the United States, yet Christians are being denied prayer in public and in schools, etc. Yet the Muslims bow down in PUBLIC in the streets of New York. So again he lies. He tells so many lies he can't keep track of what he said previously, as is the case of lying.
    A true statement which he will never comprehend is: If you tell the truth, you do not have to try to remembeer what you said before.

  9. BO will support the rights of anyone that is not an American. Strange for a POTUS…don't you think?

  10. I think Obama is stupid. He is also an illegal and should be deported. I can't believe this ass "ole" hasn't been arrested or impeached yet. What the hell is going on. Somebody vett this guy. Nobody even knows who he is!! The people of the United States are owed to know who their president is and that he is properly vetted. He is not. According to what I've seen, he is most likely a foreign national from Indonesia. He can't produce a long form birth certificate and has hidden all of his school records. I demand all this be forced to be released and exposed. I want the bum thrown out of office. He doesn't belong there.

    I-Slam the USA!!! …go figure. Just another excuse for Obama and the Muslim community to INSULT AND SLAM the USA!!! After all, the USA is EVIL according to the Islam/Muslim community. Take that Mosque and build it in the Hudson Canyon!!! Anyone who fishes off of the Northeast coast knows where I'm talking about!!!

  12. Call JOHN BUEHNER — to Congress—877-851-6437. Tell him that We The People stand behind him and
