The Grown-Ups Get Their Turn

Despite the inappropriate pep-rally atmosphere and the odd pagan "benediction," the President, Holder, Napolitano and Brewer distinguished themselves tonight in Tucson.   So especially did Daniel Hernandez, the student credited with saving Congresswoman Giffords' life.

... 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.
Well said, Mr. President.   A few days late, and it won't stop the people who are doing the blaming, but well said.

So when will Paul Krugman, the New York Times, NBC, CBS and ABC issue an apology for what they've said since Saturday?

A very sad situation and my sincere condolences to the families and friends that have lost or have injured loved ones,

I could not watch the memorial at length as it came across as a rally for the president and staff. It was as if a signficant portion of the audience was there to enjoy a peformance by the president.

I am unclear if the president had a hand in writing this speech, but for me, he came across as reading someone else's words.

As with most situations involving death and dying, I am drawn to the conclusion that this tragedy is an individualized experience.

Paul Krugman and his gang know what they are doing. They know the truth and want to suppress it. They fear the populist movement of the tea party replacing their dinosaur populist movement from the 60's.

The vitriolist in chief Obama says things like "Republicans act like Hostage takers",

They can ride in the back of the car,

Yes now that the liberals have lost power they want civility. Forget how they treated Bush for 8 years.
We bring a gun when they bring a knife.

Of cpurse the president had a hand in writing it. He wanted exactly what you saw. A pep rally kicking off his 2012 campaign.
