What should be government’s response to a Muslim center planned for Lower Manhattan?

President Barack Obama has gotten heat from conservatives over his assertion that

Muslims should be able to build a community center near the grounds where the World Trade Center once stood. Critics say the president should have said the group of Muslims has the right to build, but should not, out of sensitivity to the victims of the 9-11


Others say the president has sworn to uphold the Constitution, the document that guarantees the free expression of religion, and so was consistent in repeating its tenets. Should the federal government have anything to say about this local development?

Are conservatives disingenuous in using it to make hay in an election year? Is the president out of touch with Americans on this issue?
