The Obama Speech

President Obama gave a speech in Arizona last night, and I thought he did an outstanding job. At a time when the political back and forth over “blame” for the horrific shooting incident has taken over the media focus the President reminded us that we are bound together as Americans. There really is much more that binds us together than that which divides us. I thought he hit the right note, which was non-partisan and healing. His remarks on the victims of the shooting, in my opinion, were superb. We lost a nine year old girl who had expressed a curiosity about how our government works. The President’s call for us to try to live up to the ideals of our children hit the perfect note. I am sure he will be criticized, but I am not sure anyone can do so seriously. The Eagle Tribune story on the speech is here.

    Your Honor,
    The president did a nice job. I think it might have been more dignified had he met with the family and survivors privately.

    Now, do we go back to Krugman’s America?
