Obama Serves Red Meat for Far Left During Iftar Dinner

U.S. President Barack Obama hosts an Iftar dinner in celebration of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington on August 13, 2010.

Obama protected his left flank by issuing a statement yesterday that construction of the proposed mosque to be built on the World Trade Center killing fields was well within the builder's rights. This is despite nearly 2/3 of Americans opposing it.

As I stated earlier, there's a difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. Unfortunately, Obama failed to truly lead, and completely failed to talk about the latter.

The only consolation for those of us convinced we're completely on the wrong track is that this alignment he's made will just about assure a 2010 Republican rout, and a 2012 uphill battle for the presidency. 

I am simply astonished at how greatly our country has changed in two short years, but I guess that's what we wanted, huh?
