Nancy Pelosi (D-PRC*), soon to be ex-Speaker of the House
Audio from KCBS here.
We will dispense with the bit about the current Democratic leadership in the House and Senate and the White House being antagonistic to any sort of oppositional freedom of speech, that horse is long past dead.
What is interesting is the fear.
Obama stuck all of their feet in the fire when he came out and supported the WTC area mosque. Now, to make matters worse for Pelosi and company, Harry Reid went and bucked Obama and said the mosque should be moved. What is a poor girl to do?
The fact that she, after only 2 questions, went to the old Democratic party failsafe of investigating anyone who opposes them tells me that this is a winning issue for the right.
Hammer away at it. Make every Democrat running for office take a stand on it.
They will either answer in support of the mosque and put them on the wrong side of the issue as far as the public is concerned, come out against the mosque and create a public division in the Democratic Party, or refuse to answer and look weak and indecisive on the campaign trail.
It's a win-win-win for the GOP.
Now, the only questions is, will the GOP go for the win or once again play not to lose?
