Really? I'd give 'em ...

... a big, fat middle finger:

There's a new argument emerging among supporters of the Ground Zero mosque. Distressed by President Obama's waffling on the issue, they're calling on former President George W. Bush to announce his support for the project, because in this case Bush understands better than Obama the connection between the war on terror and the larger question of America's relationship with Islam. It's an extraordinary change of position for commentators who long argued that Bush had done grievous harm to America's image in the Muslim world and that Obama represented a fresh start for the United States. Nevertheless, they are now seeing a different side of the former president.

Author Byron York quotes libs Maureen Dowd, Eugene Robinson and Peter Beinart. As for the former president, he "has declined to comment on the mosque affair."

I'm sure it's only a matter of time before this silence is twisted into the whole mosque affair somehow being W's fault.

Good luck with that. Dubya was constantly beset with previous presidents like Carter criticizing him and making political hay for his opposition. I doubt he's going to repeat their sins in reverse.
