Obama Undaunted By Fallout From Mosque Remarks
ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (AP) - A spokesman says President Barack Obama isn't worried about the furor over his comments on a planned mosque near Ground Zero, or that the Senate's top Democrat opposes the idea.
Deputy press secretary Bill Burton said Tuesday that Majority Leader Harry Reid is "fiercely independent," and just one of many Americans with strong views.
Obama said Friday that Muslims have a right to worship where they please, including near Ground Zero. But on Saturday he said he wasn't endorsing the specific plans.
