After his speech honoring those in Tucson who were killed and injured and those who acted to subdue the lone gunman, the talking heads and radio mouths praised President Obama’s speech. Even those morons at Fox news got in on the praising.
The part of the speech that I liked best:
“But what we can’t do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another. As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together.”
If only the politicians on the left and right would heed his call for civility in the debates that will take place this year and in 2012 during the presidential election.
And some of you bloggers need to tone down your language, too.
