Reid Opposes GZ Mosque

Today, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid broke with President Obama and publicly stated his opposition to the construction of the Ground Zero Mosque.

While I applaud Reid for his stance I am under no illusion that he did it out of principle.

Does anyone think we would have heard from Reid about this if he didn't have Sharron Angle breathing down his neck?

Reid's comments also have the effect of neutralizing the comments he made last week when he claimed that he "didn't know how anyone of any Hispanic heritage could be a Republican." Or at the very least diverting attention away from them.

Nonetheless, Reid's willingness to jettison himself away from Obama does have the effect of politically weakening the President.
