Political Correctness in it's purest form, all compliments of the Republicans.

"Well I think it's another example of him playing the role of law professor" President Obama taught or lectured constitutional law at the UOC. This is about the constitution, mind you. Coming from groups (GOP and baggers) who pretend to uphold the constitution, this is at best laughable.

"Insensitive" isn't the way I would characterize it. I would say Obama has shown nothing but sensitivity. To Muslims that is. During the election the media characterized him as the "race candidate" for a reason. His leanings should surprise no one.

Obama has betrayed no "leanings". Not blocking this religious project is neutral, and required by the 1st amendment.

Charges of "insensitivity" are pretty outrageous coming from the creeps that have consistently blocked medical benefits for 9-11 responders.

For ages conservatives tried to label liberals as the "touchy-feelie" people, more interested in feelings than principles. "You go with that 'sensitivity ¢rap but we use our heads" was the GOP's so-called clarion call.

Now? Not. So. Much.

Good point. When did they start caring about people's feelings?

When they found a way to exploit the most primitive fight-or-flight feeling of them all: fear of the "other".

It's incredible callous and destructive but they don't give a rat's a$$.

They don't, but if it a mean to cease power, they would use anything and anybody. Feelings be damn.

The best thing republicans do now is whine like a little girl with a skinned knee everytime they don't get their way. Pathetic.

I am a 9/11 survivor. I believe I was attacked by Hani Hanjour on American 77 because he did not agree with our values. Among these are the freedoms of speech, press, assembly and religion. For that, I blame him and Osama, not his parents, nor his co-religionists. I was not offended by the mosque in the Pentagon before 9/11, nor afterward. I was impressed there were so many worshippers there. That is not an issue, it is a right. I believe our sensitivities should be toward protecting our values, and our Constitution, in order to defeat the criminal intent of those who attacked us.

Daggone those Republicans and their "political correctness". I suppose if they have their way way I will have to take sensitivity training if I want to visit the Big Apple.

Obama 2012!

insensitive? Seriously? From the party that has used hateful language and dog whistles towards our POTUS? From the party that just compared the Mosque to Nazi Germany? From the party that used 9/11 as a political wedge and is still doing so? From the party that refused to fund 9/11 volunteer funds?

these people wouldn't know sensitive if it cried all over them.

Coming from the party of the "straight old white men" who have no tolerance for any one else, even members of their party, like women, gays and the few "people of color". I didn't look, but if this is not in the comedy section it should be.

Insensitive?! WOW! That is rich considering that the Republicans blocked the 9/1emergency medical responders bill.

Yep, but it's ok for the gentlemen's strip club to be on hallowed ground.

This is hilarious. The President has no time or place to be 'sensitive' about a matter like this. Regardless of "public" opinion, Obama said the right thing. Done.

Okay first and foremost of all, there already is a mosque near ground zero (did you see the Daily Show make fun of that). Secondly, the mosque is not at ground zero, and there were people of other countries and cultures affected by 9/11. Christians, Jews and Muslims, so why should one group have carte blanche to say or think they are more affected by 9/11 than other groups? To make a politic issue out of one of the founding tenents of our country is the height of hypocrisy, and these idiots don't agree with anything the black man says, so who really gives a cow if they think him too scholarly? Since 1791 freedom of religion has been espoused by our founding fathers, and to think that Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck know better than those slave-owning, gun-toting icons makes me want to throw up.

Logic is not something the GOP is aquainted(?) with and don't have a clue how to use.

Does anybody see the irony here?

For the past few days, anybody who suggests moving the mosque/cultural center out of concern for the sensitivities of others (including the families of the 9/11 victims) has gotten trashed as bigoted for trying to deprive peace-loving Muslims of their Constitutional right to put it wherever they want.

Now Obama is being trashed for unambiguously clarifying their Constitutional right to build it wherever they want? For somehow being too precise and failing to step into the wasp's nest of whether it should be moved out of respect for the feelings of others?

This just gets worse and worse.
