"No Muslims"

Mitt Romney found himself in a political squabble when he stated that he would not have any Muslim-Americans in his Cabinet because they do not have an equal percentage in the United States. He then turned around and tried to clarify his statement by saying that it was due to the way the question was worded. He says that the question asked if he felt they would need a Muslim in the Cabinet in order to face radical Jihad and in answer to this, he said no just as they didn't need a Japanese-American in the Cabinet to understand the threat coming from there decades ago.

It looks like Romney has once again gotten himself into a religion-related controversy, aside from his mysterious Mormon background which has been shielded from the public this far.
