Has anyone noticed the bit of irony in the coming GOP debate this week at the Ford Performing Arts Center in Dearborn, Michigan? It wasn’t too long ago that begin associated with anything Ford was a sign of insensitivity.

Back in February, the National Jewish Democrat Council graced the headlines with this press release:

The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) expressed its deep concerns today about Republican Mitt Romney's decision to announce his candidacy for President from the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit, Michigan. Located on grounds formally owned by Ford, the museum is a testament to the life of Henry Ford, a notorious anti-Semite and xenophobe whose belief that Jews were second-class, inferior citizens were expressed in detail in his writings on his theory of Americanization. Ford was also bestowed with the Grand Service Cross of the Supreme Order of the German Eagle by Adolph Hitler.

Alan Dershowitz had a fun time with this as well at the Huffington Post:

Why would an American presidential candidate choose to announce his candidacy at a museum dedicated to the memory of America's most notorious and influential anti-Semite?

I don’t know Al, but why would a national Main Stream Media outlet choose a performing arts center dedicated to the most notorious and influential anti-Semite as the foreground for a Presidential debate?

Here’s to hoping that NJDC will do the right thing and take CNBC/MSNBC/Wallstreet Journal to task for such insensitivity.

James Dobson & Company:

I wish James Dobson & all those Christian leaders who are mulling about an independent candidate would simply get on board the Romney train.

If Pro-life is all they care about, Romney is clearly their only hope of electing a pro-life president...the independent candidate idea will only bring to life their worst nightmare - President Hillary Clinton. The longer these Christian leaders wait to support Romney, the less impact they are going to have.
