This, of course, was the result of his decision at the end of the previous week to weigh in on, then run away from, the debate over the Ground Zero mosque.

All week, the professional left hurled accusations of bigotry at the two-thirds or so of Americans who take offense at the idea of a fancy new mosque near the site of the 9/11 attack. But one familiar claim was notable for its absence. Hardly anybody asserted that the growing anti-Obama sentiment was the result of racism against a black president.

Instead, the charges of bigotry tended toward the esoteric, sometimes the downright freakish.Peter “I Pine” Beinart in The Daily Beast:
