Harry Reid Adopts Sharron Angle’s Position on the Ground Zero Mosque

This morning, the campaign of GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle issued this statement:

Our forefathers made it very clear in the U.S. Constitution that people of all faiths have the right to practice their religion here in America.  As with all religions, Muslims have the right to worship in New York or Nevada or any state in our nation. 

However, by supporting the construction of a mosque at Ground Zero, President Obama has once again ignored the wishes of the American people, this time at the expense of victims of 9/11 and their families.  They have said overwhelmingly that the location of this mosque is an affront to the memories of their loved ones who were murdered by Islamic extremists on 9/11.  Their wishes should be respected.

As the Majority Leader, Harry Reid is usually President Obama’s mouthpiece in the U.S. Senate, and yet he remains silent on this issue.   Reid has a responsibility to stand up and say no to the mosque at Ground Zero or once again side with President Obama — this time against the families of 9/11 victims. America is waiting.

Now we learn that indeed, Harry Reid opposes the construction of the mosque at the location in question.

Sharron Angle leads, Harry Reid follows.

Any Democratic donors want their money back?
