I think the problem was when he came out the next day and said I was talking about the -- vs the wisdom and I wasn't endorsing the specifics of the plan.
It undercuts what he was saying in the first site.
I think the problem for Obama again and again is that he could have been absorbed its 24 hour news cycle.
And that even these things the right thing it's going to inject itself in a way that he can't get away from it.

-- all you thinkers should build the mosque.
What I want to build -- I do actually I think what they were trying to do in this market I understand -- It's a place where Muslims -- on what -- -- can understand each other the developer has been very involved in counterterrorism.

Where they support -- the located at the local decision.
-- I I support their decision to make it there but I'm not the one that should be making that decision they should in New York.
Or you greatly disappointed -- on turf council smarter one -- and then to home.

Why love avenue on memory I have and for the past -- and -- -- loved afternoon on.

Think before we go in the hotel that Obama going to Martha's Vineyard.
Good old -- very is that there was one time when he was starting out with the Bundy rather clarity that we're about suddenly -- other up that.
