Obama Goes Back To Voting Present On The Ground Zero Mosque

After weeks of silence, last Friday Obama gave a speech clearly backing the Ground Zero Mosque project.  In typical Obama fashion, he did it through gauzy irrelevant rhetoric about the 1st Amendment, getting the whole issue wrong.  This is not a 1st Amendment issue — no one disputes the right to build a mosque in that location.  Some of us simply have problems with the lack of respect that building a mosque at Ground Zero shows to victims of Islamic terrorism.

But at least Obama finally took a position.  By Saturday, however, Obama was moon-walking back from its endorsement as fast as possible, claiming that he “was not commenting, and . . . will not comment, on the wisdom of making a decision to put a mosque there.” 

It is pretty sobering to see how gutless our President is.
