Meet Harry Reid, Islamaphobe and apparent bigot

Defenders of the mosque at Ground Zero are quick to call critics Islamaphobes and religious bigots... or worse.

What I wonder will they call Harry Reid?

Add another election-year hurdle for Democrats: President Barack Obama's forceful defense of the right of Muslims to build a mosque near the World Trade Center site.

His comments are giving Republicans a campaign-year cudgel and forcing Democrats to address a divisive issue within weeks of midterm contests that will decide the balance of power in Washington. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, in a competitive re-election fight, was the highest profile Democrat to move away from Obama on the matter.

"The First Amendment protects freedom of religion," Reid's spokesman Jim Manley said in a statement Monday. "Senator Reid respects that but thinks that the mosque should be built some place else."

I suspect, as the polls on this issue begin to hit the airwaves, that more Democrats will be joining the so called Islamophobic and bigoted ranks

Wait and see.

Jeff Blogworthy:

I don't know what 'they' call Harry Reid, but I call him an election-year opportunist and an abject liar. Those on the left will hardly be offended, since they know he doesn't really mean a thing he says. Wink wink.

Upset Old Guy:

JimX certainly told us how he feels about Harry and other Democrats voicing opposition, "I utterly disagree and think they're wrong."

Can't get any stronger than that, can you? /sarc off

It really will not matter, after all they'll STILL have a 'D' after their name on the ballot.

You can only be Islamophobic and bigoted if your are a conservative.

Reid read the polls so he went against Obama. Wake up in Nevada and get rid of Reid.

How dare you say that about Harry Reid! Reid is a very principled individual.
Unfortunately, the principle he adheres to is "getting re-elected".

Hally Leid.

recovered liberal democrat:

What you won't hear from the statist, liberal, media is that, he only said it after his opponent came out against it. He's pathetic. I hope Nevadans spare us another six years of his sourpuss on the news.

I'm at the point where I expect Democrats to lie, cheat, and say any damn thing they think they can get away with in order to win their next elections.

They know that a lot of the people are gullible saps who'll believe whatever they're told, and forget quickly what was promised.

But lately, for sheer self-preservation, we've had to start paying attention to their promises and hold them to it when the expected unicorns don't show. And they're not used to that - they're not used to being held accountable, they're not used to people remembering what they promised, and worst of all they're not used to actually having to show RESULTS.

(Positive results, that is. Actual improvements, not endless media spin as they try to persuade you that increasing the chocolate ration to 25 grams a week from 30 is an improvement in your quality of life...)

Frankly, the old guard (Pelosi, Reid, the old-timers who've been there decades...) need to go. They're not kings, they're not aristocrats, they sure as hell haven't the brainpower to be 'elite' and SOLVE problems - all they seem to do is mess things up more and more with each attempted 'fix' they come up with.

The silver lining of Obama'... (Below threshold)
John S:

The silver lining of Obama's strong endorsement of the celebratory mosque at Ground Zero is that we can finally accept the truth that Barry Soetoro is Muslim. He may not bow and pray towards Mecca, at least not in public, but Muslims are allowed to forgo these requirements when they are on an active jihad to destroy an enemy of Islam. And remember, Islam forbids the separation of Church and State. Kind of makes the thought of a Mormon in the White House a lot less frightening, doesn't it?

Don L:

Harry Reid?Isn't that the religion of those bald guys that hang around the airports in their nightgowns?

Harry can see the folly of Barry's way. Now if only Nevada can see the folly of Harry's way.

He's mostly a coward.... (Below threshold)

He's mostly a coward.

Of course the Iman from Hell CAN build the mosque anywhere he wants to do so. Whether or not he SHOULD is the discussion at hand. And I vote in the should not category absolutely!

We are constantly asked to be "sensitive" to the feelings and beliefs of other faiths, other political persuasions. What I want to know now, clearly and without equivocation, is when are these pissants going to show some sensitivity to MY FEELINGS and MY beliefs? Seriously, folks, this has gone on way longer than is sensible.

Maybe Barry can invite Harr... (Below threshold)

Maybe Barry can invite Harry along with a few Shieks to a beer summitt, where they can discuss losing elections, plumetting poll numbers and the wisdom of a jihadist fundraising center 2 blocks from ground 0.
