Pres. Obama Has “No Regrets” Over Commenting On ‘Ground Zero Mosque’ Controversy

Since Pres. Barack Obama made his initial comments about the Islamic Center near Ground Zero last Friday, the politicization of the debate has been upped significantly (even one ridiculous politician now think it is his mosque.)

Today, at the conclusion of an event in Ohio, Pres. Obama was asked about whether he regrets jumping into the debate. He doesn’t.

A reporter yelled, “Any regrets jumping into the Islamic Center?” After a few seconds of posing for pictures, Pres. Obama turned around and said: “The answer is, no regrets.”

The cable news networks all covered parts of the speech and Q&A session – but the closest thing to real news was made in the very last minute.

Here’s the clip from Fox News, discussing the exchange:
