Oops! My Muslim is showing…

So, Friday, BigO stuck his big foot in his big mouth in support of the Ground Zero Mosque:

Harkening back to earlier times when the building of synagogues or Catholic churches also met with opposition, Obama said: “Time and again, the American people have demonstrated that we can work through these issues, and stay true to our core values and emerge stronger for it. So it must be and will be today.” (source)

Of course that unleashed a poo-storm of dislike, and even FAIL.  So today, he had to “clarify” his earlier remarks:

President Obama on Saturday sought to clarify his comments supporting the building of a mosque near ground zero that have ignited a political firestorm ahead of a difficult election season for Democrats.(source)

He said that he meant they have a right to build wherever because of the 1st Amendment, but not that he supports it.  Of course, he didn’t condemn it either…. Really, his “clarification” boils down to:

“Oops! My Muslim was showing. My bad ya’ll.  Uh…  Um…   Yea… Uh…  I won’t let it happen again…  uh..  for a little while anyway.”
