'We are Nowhere Near the World Trade Center Site'

Is it any wonder the Democrats and leftist media have so embraced the Ground Zero Victory Mosque? They must be in love with a guy who can so shamelessly lie to you with a straight face, a skill Democrats have been honing for decades. See that red rectangle on the right side and its proximity to that smoking hole in the ground two blocks south? Don't believe your eyes, it's not really all that close.

Behold the sheer brazenness of this tale.
The developer takes issue with the fact that so much has been made of the location of the project, saying it is "nowhere near the World Trade Center site."

"Park51 is a community center. It is two blocks north of the World Trade Center site,” said El-Gamal. “In New York City, two blocks is a great distance. There are some buildings in New York that have their own zip codes. There is such a scarcity of space in New York, especially in Lower Manhattan. Keep in mind this is a small island, so we are nowhere near the World Trade Center site."
Nowhere near the World Trade Center. Well, technically that's true. Thanks to 19 Islamists, it no longer exists.

A good friend of mine lives just north of Chambers Street. Heck, he may as well be in The Bronx.
I asked El-Gamal if he's been surprised by the backlash against the project and the national attention it's garnered. He chose his words carefully.

"I am surprised at the way that politics is being played in 2010. There are issues that are affecting our country, which are real issues: unemployment, poverty, the economy,” he said. “And it's a really sad day for America when our politicians choose to look at a constitutional right and use that as basis for their elections."

El-Gamal views the fight over the center currently raging on television and in newspapers in sweeping, historic terms.
Hmm, that's funny. How coincidental the Democrats actually would prefer talking about their disastrous economy rather than the mosque. And that "sad day for America" bit sounds very familiar.

Meanwhile, David Paterson plans to further pander to the developer. Good luck, Dave.

Update: Do you have any doubt this woman needs to be removed as House Speaker?

She has no idea who's funding the mega-mosque but wants to investigate why there's overwhelming opposition to it. Thanks, Nancy, much appreciated. The GOP might win 100 seats now.
