Reader comment on item: [Mosque Mischief and] Counting Mosques

Submitted by sheila salenger (United States), Feb 8, 2003 at 16:48

for delineating the hypocrisy/disparity between political oratory and intended government actions!

But it is not only Pres. Bush and his utterances about the peaceful(sic) nature of Islam that comprise the doublespeak we Americans are subjected to on a daily basis. The very junior senator from NY has exhibited the great art of "read my lips and ignore my deeds": while publicly castigating the current administration for not really doing everything possible to protect the citizenry from terrorists, Hillary Clinton acts in a manner that belies her implication that safety is her major interest: she joins forces with Jon Corzine from NJ to sponsor a bill to stymie the activities of the immigration authorities vis-a-vis illegal aliens already in the U.S., and the entry of foreign nationals into this country.
I just keep wondering: what's the aim? ... to provide protection for ALL of us...or to prove to the world how stupid we really are???
