I mean, even Nevada Senator and Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is walking back from the New York City Ground Zero Mosque FLAP.
Now, Democrat New York Governor David Paterson is finally coming to the rescue?
New York Gov. David Paterson (D) will meet with the imam and developer of the proposed mosque near Ground Zero “later this week” to discuss the possibility of removing the mosque to an “alternate location”, according to Rep. Peter King (R).
King, an outspoken opponent of placing the mosque and Islamic cultural center so close to where terrorists attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, learned about the meeting during a phone call with Paterson Tuesday morning.
A spokesman for Paterson confirmed that efforts to broker a solution are underway. “We are working with the developers on a staff level but there have not been any formal discussions between the governor and Imam or developer,” said spokesman Morgan Hook. “However, we expect to have a meeting scheduled in the near future.”
Kind of ironic that David Paterson may be bailing out the President when Obama originally tried to force him out of a re-election race. But, Paterson is now out and Obama has some appointments at his disposal.
Pretty standard but you would never see Rudy Giuliani involved in such machinations, now would you?
