It's the End of the World As We Know It...


Yesterday I posted about Maureen Dowd and CNN both criticizing President Obama for a lack of cohesion in his message. And then stranger things happened. This from Maureen Dowd's column yesterday:

"The war against the terrorists is not a war against Islam. In fact, you can’t have an effective war against the terrorists if it is a war on Islam.

George W. Bush understood this. And it is odd to see Barack Obama less clear about this matter than his predecessor. It’s time for W. to weigh in.

This — along with immigration reform and AIDS in Africa — was one of his points of light. As the man who twice went to war in the Muslim world, he has something of an obligation to add his anti-Islamophobia to this mosque madness. W. needs to get his bullhorn back out. (source)

Did your eyes just burn out of your head? MAUREEN DOWD calling for GEORGE W. BUSH to WEIGH IN on MUSLIM RELATIONS?!

But wait, it gets better...

CAIR is also asking for Bush to weigh in on the 9/11 mosque-to-be.

WashPo columnist Eugene Robinson wrote: "I would love to hear from former President Bush on this issue. He held Ramadan iftar dinners in the White House as part of a much broader effort to show that our fight against the al-Qaeda murderers who attacked us on 9/11 was not a crusade against Islam. He was absolutely right on this point, and it would be helpful to hear his views."

Wait, I'm not done yet...

Former New Republic editor, Peter Beinart, wrote in the Daily Beast: ""Words I never thought I'd write: I pine for George W. Bush. Whatever his flaws, the man respected religion, all religion." [Bush] "used to say that the 'war on terror' was a struggle on behalf of Muslims, decent folks who wanted nothing more than to live free like you and me..."

Still going...

Then after Harry Reid came out against the building of the mosque... yesterday, HOWARD DEAN came out against it. The Scream Dean siding with sane people? Kooky! This makes Chris Christie look even worse...

Gives you a bit of an eerie feeling doesn't it...?
