There's been a lot of blather in the news today about President Obama's iftar al-Ramadan remarks concerning the Ground Zero Mosque. Needless to say, Obama approves of the Cordoba Initiative's project. But for those who seem to think that Obama's remarks are nothing to be exercised over, how about what Obama said about the Gates affair? Or any other number of matters that Obama himself said were "local?"
A word of advice to liberal apologists: If the president has to say "it's a local matter," commentary should stop forthwith. He doesn't need to say anything else, nor should he.
