I see President Obama felt the need to comment on the issue of building a mosque near Ground Zero. I wonder why. Even though NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg praises the president for his strong support for the building of the Cordoba House, the president tells us that he is not actually commenting on the wisdom of building the site, but instead reminding us that all Americans have a fundamental right of freedom of religion. True, but did we really need the president to remind us of that? And did he really need to risk his political capital to say it?
