Obama Strongly Backs Islam Center Near 9/11 Site - NYTimes.com

Obama Strongly Backs Islam Center Near 9/11 Site - NYTimes.com:

"President Obama delivered a strong defense on Friday night of a proposed Muslim community center and mosque near ground zero in Manhattan, using a White House dinner celebrating Ramadan to proclaim that “as a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country.” ...After weeks of avoiding the high-profile battle over the center — his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, said last week that the president did not want to “get involved in local decision-making” — Mr. Obama stepped squarely into the thorny debate."

"...strongly backs..."

"... — Mr. Obama stepped squarely into the thorny debate."

Um, no. He basically said that there's no reason to give a crap, and that there's definitely no reason for the president to give a crap.

And he's right.
