Kudos to the President

Posted by olemike on 01/13/2011

President Obama gave what I thought was a brilliant speech at the Memorial service in Arizona yesterday.  Although I don’t often agree with him, I have to admit that he hit almost the perfect tone with his remarks, not only in honoring the victims of the shooting, but also in  stating that the shooting was not political and should not be used for political haymaking.

I realize it may be tough for the left-wing media to stop blaming the tragedy on O’Reilly, Beck, Palin, etc.  We’ll soon see if his remarks changed any behavior on their part.  Let’s not hold our breath.  I do agree with the President that political discourse could be much improved in the country and would enable us to perhaps fix some serious problems in a bi-partisan manner.  We can only hope.

  1. I didn’t hear the speech, but I’m glad to hear Obama stepped up and hopefully put a stop to all of the ridiculous mud slinging going on. And even though I don’t always comment, I enjoy your blog!!

    I, too, thought the Memorial speech was really good. There’s no doubt that he is a great speaker. I did think the cheering from the audience at one point may have been too much but I understand it.
