Democratic Congressional Campaign Chairman Chris Van Hollen and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) … took on the mosque issue in light of the November midterms. Van Hollen said that "it would be wrong to politicize this issue," adding that he agreed with Obama that the decision on the mosque's location is "a question for the people of New York." … McCarthy reiterated his opposition to building the mosque near Ground Zero and said that it would be "an overriding issue" this fall.So much for the economy and jobs, jobs, jobs. The mosque at Ground Zero will be “an overriding issue” in the upcoming elections. Republicans can’t help themselves from getting sidetracked on everything wedge issue they can dredge up. And on the issue of privatizing Social Security, a plan set forth by Bush, Paul Ryan, Sharron Angle and Rand Paul (and every Republican in the country), the media still wants to pretend the GOP is getting a bum rap.
Van Hollen said that Republicans, and House Minority Leader John Boehner in particular, have been "very vocal in support of the Bush plan to privatize Social Security." McCarthy called Van Hollen's charge a "scare tactic to try to get off jobs."PROJECTION ALERT!!! Who’s trying “to get off jobs” with the overriding issue of building a mosque at Ground Zero?
And the independents are breaking for the GOP, thinking they can run the economy!! We get what we deserve.
