Obama Back Peddles on Mosque Endorsement

During his photo op appearance to the Gulf Coast, President Obama said his statement at the White House Ramadan Ifar (which was attended by a handful of congress members including Rush Holt) about the proposed mosque a Ground Zero was not meant as an endorsement of the location, but an emphasis on the Islamic community's constitutional right to build it.

It is nice to hear the President support the Constitution he has sworn to uphold.

Obama said he was not commenting, and that he would not comment, on the wisdom of putting a mosque at Ground Zero. He should.
