Obama's Audacity of Double Talk and Cowardice on the NYC Islamic Center

After Mayor Bloomberg's ringing defense of democratic rights and attack on anti-Islamic bigotry (a surprise to me actually. Given his contempt for democratic rights for New York City citizens, especially victims of his racist cops. But give credit where it's due.) Obama chimed in with a "me too."

Then, perhaps after looking at some poll numbers that showed a majority of the people in favor of bigotry and Islamophobia, he trimmed his sails and explained that he didn't really mean it, but he's in favor of the idea of religious freedom.

Finally, perhaps seeing that he went too far towards painting all Muslims as terrorists, he corrected himself and whispered a more muted "me too" to Bloomberg's statement.

I'll keep you posted on the next iteration from our bold audacious prez.
