Using the cover of patriotism and American uniqueness those who would undermine the Fourteenth Amendment, pass anti-immigrant laws, and criticize the building of a mosque solely on the tactic that the September 11, 2001 terror attack and its political importance must never die - that would end the war on terror. Instead they have be adding fuel to the fire by fanning the rage of the public and creating a discourse that is chillingly negative.
Understandingly, President Obama walks a very tight rope in confronting this age of rage and bigotry. He is oftentimes the target of the same people pushing all of the un-American, anti-people policies that define this new national rage and anger. "Blame Obama for everything" is a part of this strategy. But President Obama must defend the constitution and push back against those muddying the waters and leading decent Americans down a path of hatred and bigotry.
