    What is with your constant stereotyping. There are some on the right who feel very passionately about the constitution just as there are some on the left. There are many on both sides that don't care or even think about the constitution. Keep your stereotypes to yourself. You think all people who are against muslims are republican? Same with atheists and gays? That's just ignorant and naive.

    The only thing you said that was right was your last sentence. I agree whol heartedly there.

    Catz, what exactly did you see that was useful there? Aren't mods supposed to be reasonable?

    Nah, this won't hurt the democrats. The kind of people who want to discriminate against Muslims vote Republican anyway, along with all the people who hate immigrants and gays and atheists and apparently a huge percentage of the American population.

    Real Americans love the Constitution and everything it stands for.

    It must already be hurting him since he is already back pedaling.

    Mosque flap swirls around Obama - James Hohmann and Maggie Haberman and Mike Allen - POLITICO.com

    But on Saturday, Obama seemed to contradict himself, telling reporters at one point, “I was not commenting and I will not comment on the wisdom of making the decision to put a mosque there. I was commenting very specifically on the right people have that dates back to our founding. That's what our country is about. And I think it's very important as difficult as some of these issues are that we stay focused on who we are as a people and what our values are all about."

    That impromptu answer to a TV reporter covering his trip to Florida prompted a second attempt to clarify his initial statement, this time from spokesman Bill Burton.

    “Just to be clear, the president is not backing off in any way from the comments he made last night,” Burton said. “It is not his role as president to pass judgment on every local project. But it is his responsibility to stand up for the Constitutional principle of religious freedom and equal treatment for all Americans. What he said last night, and reaffirmed today, is that if a church, a synagogue or a Hindu temple can be built on a site, you simply cannot deny that right to those who want to build a mosque.”

    White House officials later said that Obama was simply saying that since there was no local ordinance that would prevent construction of the mosque, he believed local officials made the right decision to allow it to go forward.

    Why would it? I think most people in this Country recognize and respect religious freedom. I think most people also understand that this mosque isn't even at the ground zero site. The only ones feigning their outrage are the right-wing nutjobs who would oppose this center even if it were 10 miles away from ground zero.

    Thank you for indulging in the same kind of bigoted stereotyping and over generalization that you're attempting to suggest the other side is doing.

    I think it'll be a minor thing at most come November. Obama's not on the ballot, this won't be as large of a story at that point, and there's much larger issues at play.

    Yet Obama is clarifying and putting it on local authorities. This shows Obama is concerned about the backlash and once again making sure he is not blamed for what he says.

    What are you talking about?

    Of course he's putting it on Local Authorities, its THEIR decision, not his...

    Hope you understand that.

    Or it could be that people where, once again, twisting his words, so he made it absolutely clear what he was saying.

    He is backpedaling he is concerned what people will think of what he said. He should say yes they have freedom but the appearance of doing it where 3000 were killed by extremeists is a bad idea

    He says "the mosque has a legal right to be there". He then clarifies "I was only talking about the legal right". Now how exactly is that backpedaling?
