I will give the President props. He gave a great speech.
“Bad things happen,” Obama said, “and we must guard against simple explanations in the aftermath.”
Hello, Mainstream Media and MSDNC!
He took shots at the LEFT and the media that went crazy, which I didn’t think he would.
He sounded Presidential for the first time ever.
But will it last and will he and the Democrats grow up and be that angel of our better nature and be able to live up to soaring speech about living up to the child’s vision of Christina Taylor Green. “I want us to live up to her expectations. I want our democracy to be as good as she imagined it,” Obama said.
“We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another is entirely up to us.” -President Obama.
“Let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy. It did not,” the president said.
He admonished against any instinct to point blame or to drift into political pettiness or to latch onto simple explanations that may have no merit.
Lofty words. But will his party of Social Justice nutbags temper themselves and be more civil to those with whom they disagree?
I doubt it.
I am too cynical.
I just have to think, I will get them to re-elect me in 2012 and then we got them! Heh heh heh… This is my cunning plan!
That and when he gets back to Washington DC Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the Queen, will slap him and say “I am not amused…” 🙂
Sorry, that’s me.
Arizona has been through a lot in the last few years.
Illegal Immigration gangs and Cartel killings.
A Governor who abandons her post to be the Peter Principle of the New President and then blows us off. (Janet Napalitano)
She said Illegal Immigration was a “federal problem” and then we she was the Fed she largely ignored us and said “it’s more secure than ever”.
So that’s why we have snipers in the hills of the border and thousands of drug dealers coming over the border, agents killed, ranchers killed, and signs near the border saying Americans should stay away because it’s too dangerous IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY.
So when we try and address the issue, the Government sues us and we all get tarred as “racists”.
When I saw Napalitano at the Memorial my first thought was “Well, we finally got her to come back here. Can we rope her and tie her to border”.
And I saw Eric Holder, and wondered if now that he was here we could convince him that we aren’t all angry white racists and bigots.
Both decided to read for the Bible instead at the Memorial.
They know the Bible?? Aren’t most Progressives secular and God and Christianity is evil (clinging to their guns and religion, right-wingers, etc)??
Isn’t this “government sanctioning religion”??
Will the ACLU sue them. 🙂
“At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized — at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do — it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds,” the president said.
I would like to believe it, but I am too cynical. So I take the Ronald Reagan attitude of “trust but verify”. I don’t trust the Left. Period.
It sounded good. But if it is not acted on it is but sound and “fury” signifying nothing.
The Day before the shooting the Obama administration planned to announce plans for an Internet identity system that will limit fraud and streamline online transactions, leading to a surge in Web commerce, officials said.
What it will really do is make the government the nanny of the internet and of course with Mr Loughner’s well known use of the Internet it will be the Left’s opportunity to regulate the internet to our death.
Ve vill be vatching you! (bad german accent)
So not much has changed.
Been There. Done that got the T-Shirt.
Now that’s striking a new tone, don’t you think! 🙂
Can the Left grow up and stop the childish and churlish ad hominems and be civil.
I very much doubt it.
So, American Left, prove me wrong. I dare you! 🙂
