Peter King Said What???

You know, there are only a small handful of politicians who are willing to be this un-PC:

New York Rep. Peter King, a prominent House Republican, said there are “too many mosques in this country” in a recent interview with Politico.
“There are too many people sympathetic to radical Islam,” King said. “We should be looking at them more carefully and finding out how we can infiltrate them.”

When asked to clarify, King,  the ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee, didn’t backtrack:

“I think there has been a lack of full cooperation from too many people in the Muslim community.”

He also said in an earlier interview with Sean Hannity, that 85% of the mosques in this country are controlled by ‘Extremist leadership’, which prompted strong condemnations from the ususal suspects—‘religious organizations’ (I wonder which ones), and the DNC.

This kind of candor is refreshing.
 

The Deuce You Say!

You probably haven’t heard about this, because according to Gateway Pundit, the media didn’t cover it, but yesterday, on the White House lawn, Bush declared that, (according to General Petraeus) “we are succeeding in Iraq”, and “we will succeed”.

The President was speaking before groups of military support organizations on the south lawn, where the families chanted USA! USA!, and gave him a standing O. (Video at Gateway Pundit).

There were mothers in that group, Sally Field. Proud mothers who support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and their deployed sons and daughters.

Imagine that.
