Betty Sutton speaks about the Ground Zero mosque

In a stunning reversal of her long-cherished belief that the federal government knows best about everything, and certainly not due to any panic over the impending loss of her seat in the House of Representatives (you sexist racist hate-filled warmonger), Representative Betty Sutton (D-OH) finally ended her silence on the Cordoba House Park 51 Ground Zero Debris Field Mosque, according to The Plain Dealer:

Ground Zero mosque“This is a sensitive issue, especially for those most directly affected by the attack at Ground Zero, and I trust that those in the area are in the best position to find a solution,” Copley Township Democratic Rep. Betty Sutton said on Tuesday.

[Challenger Tom] Ganley said “Obama and liberal leaders” have “acted in a way that is insensitive to families and friends of those victims we lost almost nine years ago.” He said he supports New York Gov. David Patterson’s effort to move the proposed mosque and Islamic cultural center to another location.

Ganley followed up on his Facebook page:

I am opposed to the mosque being built near the WTC memorial, though when asked by the Plain Dealer, my opponent will not say yes or no.

I guess Tom Ganley just doesn’t understand how busy Betty is. She’s got too much on her plate to respond to an issue that highlights her party’s incoherence and incompetence in matters of national security and common decency. Ganley has yet to learn that in the world of our Washington ruling class, all matters are best decided by bureaucrats and czars in DC unless it would embarrass a Democrat incumbent to take a position. In such rare cases, these matters become Local Issues™.
I wonder if Betty agrees with Speaker Nancy Pelosi that opponents of the Hamasque should be investigated? Perhaps people like these should be the first ones to be called to testify at the next Democrat Party show trial:

“Never Forget” is just a slogan when there’s an election to be won, y’know.

    I got a flier from Sutton’s campaign recently. Oddly enough, I couldn’t find her party affiliation anywhere on said flier. I wonder why??
    BTW, I didn’t get back to Hillbuzz soon enough, but I am also a member of the LC-MS. I like knowing as many other conservatives in this area as possible, and being Lutheran is just icing on the cake!
