Florida's newly "independent" governor, Charlie Crist, has come out in full support of the Ground Zero mosque by supporting Obama's position:
Gov. Charlie Crist, R-Fla., who was among those who met with Obama on Saturday, lauded the president's position.
"I think he's right — I mean you know we're a country that in my view stands for freedom of religion and respect for others," Christ said after the Florida meeting with Obama and other officials. "I know there are sensitivities and I understand them. This is a place where you're supposed to be able to practice your religion without the government telling you you can't."
Apparently he doesn't read the news, polls, and blogs explaining that most Americans are against the Ground Zero mosque and hasn't realized that many of the Democrats are distancing themselves from Obama to win their elections.
Whatever happened to the reverence we as Americans held for the victims of 9/11? We have gone from a country bonded together, to one torn apart by the MSM, politics, religion, and race. We promised we would never forget and not even a decade out, this support for the mosque from elected officials allows for the trampling of the memory of each and every person who died in the 9/11 attacks.
The ad is called "Respect" for a reason and was shown only once. Respect. Such a small word, but captured the emotions held by Americans--even to this day.
To narrowly twist this issue into one of "rights" and not a provocation is ultimately a seal of approval.
