At 'C' party parley, ex-LG decries 'Obamacare', mosque near Ground Zero

Former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey opened the state Conservatives' nomination event with a blistering attack on President Obama’s health care reform. “We are not Europeans,” she exclaimed.

McCaughey went on to declare that state Democrats are impinging on “our way of life.”

“The politicians right here in New York are permitting the building of a mosque, a temple to terrorists, right next to the 9/11 site. Right where our New Yorkers jumped from the 110 stories, jumped to their deaths to avoid an even worse fate.”
