Meek 'The Real Democrat,' Clinton Says In Robo Call

I think Meek is a good guy and has a political future but I think he is just wasting his money in the Florida race this year. Clinton should be campaigning for candidates like Sestak, Murray, Feingold and Carnahan. I think Meek should probably ride this election out by playing for respect, even though his chances of winning are slim.

I think Clinton should come do some campaigning up my way for Deval Patrick and the gubernatorial candidate and winner in the VT primary tuesday.

68% in a new poll are against the building of the mosque near Ground Zero. The polls also shows the nation split on the birthright issue.

The Mosque issue is a little more understandable than the Birthright issue. Changing the constitution will be one bad right wing mistake.

Ah, yes, that potent American one-two punch: xenophobia and stupidity. It makes one question those polls from earlier that said that Americans didn't like what was in the health care law. I strongly believe that most people were as uninformed about that as they are about Islam and Obama's background.

This conservative disintegration is going to be brutal on the country.

The Clintons and the Meeks are very tight. I suspect that Bill will be spending a lot of time in Florida between now and Nov. 2.

Why doesn't Bill Clinton try to campaign for people in the Democratic party who have a chance. I think Barbara Boxer, Feingold and Murray could use his help as well as Conway.

Florida Cracker:

Far Left,

What you say makes sense, but the Clintons feel a sense of obligation to the Meeks. They were instrumental in Bill's presidential runs and I believe that they supported Hillary in 2008. If they are anything, the Clintons are loyal.

LOL. Of course, because if you are sensitive and compassionate to those people killed on 9/11, you are clearly xenophobic and stupid. The uber-tolerant left is on display again! Pathetic. Simply pathetic.

I am extraordinarily compassionate (as you are not), having lost 3 friends in the attacks, so perhaps you should ask questions before assuming what you don't know.

I'm talking about people who know nothing about Islam and want to keep it that way and assume that most Muslims are terrorists as Mr Gingrich and Ms. Palin seem to believe. Why aren't they also condemning the two strip clubs that are on the same street? Don't they insult the hallowed ground argument?

As for the birth issue, are you agreeing with the birthers? You seem to like to defend their outright ignorance. I apparently gave you too much credit for being rational.

The mosque issue is a retrenchment of the culture wars, historically an effective strategy for the GOP.

Obama played into their hands by taking the side of the "other."

The mosque debate is really tiring. It's something like this:

"Homeowner: I want my house painted yellow. I have the right to do so.

Neighbor: I don't like yellow. Paint it blue.

Homeowner: But I want to paint it yellow and I can paint it yellow. I don't like blue.

Neighbor: Let's compromise. Out of decency, please, paint it blue."

I have yet to understand at what distance from ground zero would make the mosque acceptable. Imam Rauf's theology is as far away from the terrorists as any Muslim can get. The only connection is the religion, which is apparently enough for a lot of people.

As a libertarian registered Republican I agree with you. I would point out that painting something yellow wouldn't offend anyone as building a mosque near ground zero would offend people. I personally don't think it's offensive, but some narrow minded people will take offense to it.

However, why are conservatives so outraged at the mosque? It's the neo-cons up to their old tricks of scaring the public into more support for the war. Is it really so outrageous that all the news, especially on Fox, is all about this issue? Is it really so outrageous that a Muslim center can be built in NYC, a few blocks away from ground zero?

Sure 62% or whatever oppose it. Majorities can easily become oppressors and the fact of the matter is statistics of support don't matter in this. A government is supposed preserve liberty via the law and the constitution. Conservatives should take the real conservative stand here and defend property rights and the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

by building the mosque there, you are going to make this guy celebrate. Watch the entire video, and maybe it will change your mind. Reasons like this are exactly why the mosque should not be built near ground zero.

Again, I don't care how many people oppose the building of the muslim cultural center, it is a basic constitutional right which is not up for majority approval.
I thought that conservatives believed in property rights.
I guess not!
Field Marshall:One's position on the Mosque does not mean that one doesn't care about the victims of 9/11.
Hoever, being against health care for the first responders is! MORON

AlanSnipes:

Field Marshall: You moron. One doesn't have to be against the mosque to sensitive to those who died on 9/11.
However, being against health care for the first responders, like you and your ilk are, is.
I thought conservatives beilieved in property rights.
I guess not!

Are you kidding? Please... if you're smart enough to be a libertarian republican, than you're smart enough not to believe the garbage you typed.

A government is supposed preserve liberty via the law and the constitution. Conservatives should take the real conservative stand here and defend property rights and the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

And nobody is oppressing anyone. People are USING their constitutional right to protest the building of ONE mosque near a place where 19 people killed in the name of islam over 3,000 innocent people. Its very simple. Its shouldn't be this difficult to understand.

And both sides have these wedge issues, similar to the left with gay marriage, theophobia, and their anti-Christianity crusades. Look at the nuts at Moveon and NAMBLA protesting Target because they donated to Minn Gov candidate Emmer. Apparently MoveOn and NAMBLA are against the constitutional right to donate to a campaign.

It's funny how twisted logic can get in passionate people's minds. We're truly to the point now that putting an ad out to like-minded people saying "don't spend money at a certain store because they support causes you don't" is the same as trying to prevent a property owner from building something on his property.

Also, gotta love that FOX news had the guy on 3 months ago to celebrate him and his work to advance moderate Islam.

How is it not Thad? Seems fairly similar to me and i would imagine most fair-minded and rational folks. Both groups are attempting to prevent the success of the opposite party? Again, not very difficult (for most) to see.

Shopping is an optional experience, free market economy stuff. Are you providing a product and experience that I find better than your competitor. Educating people about what a company does or how they make their sneakers does not in any way hamper that choice.

Now I have no problem with people expressing their opinion of whether they think a mosque should be built their, heck even tell people not to donate money. But working to prevent a private citizen from building something perfectly legal on their property is another item all together. To complete that analogy Moveon.org would need to be out tripping people trying to get into the store, or working to close the street to the entrance to their parking lots.
