    Let’s Not Forget Who Among Many Has Coarsened The Conversation

    Let’s Not Forget Who Among Many Has Coarsened The Conversation

    As I posted yesterday, I thought Obama gave a good speech at the Tucson memorial. 

    The mainstream media, which has been seeking a way to redeem Obama’s presidency, is portraying the speech as turning point in which Obama brought us all together, in contrast to Sarah Palin’s allegedly divisive speech. 

    I don’t see the speech having a lasting impact on Obama’s presidency unlike George W. Bush’s speech after 9/11.  While Tucson was a tragedy by any account, it simply was not on the scale of 9/11, and therefore Obama’s speech was not of equivalent importance to the nation.

    While we ponder the impact of the speech, let’s not forget the role Obama has played in coarsening the national dialogue, going back to the campaign.  Rather than repeating what I have said before, here are some of my prior posts:

    Having used divisiveness to push through Obamacare and other expansions of government, Obama now wants everyone to come together and lower the volume. 

    That’s fine.  But it should not affect our policy goals one iota, or the vigor with which we seek to roll back some of the mistakes of the past two years.

    At the NY Times, blood libel is thicker than circulation:

    "The president’s words were an important contrast to the ugliness that continues to swirl in some parts of the country. The accusation by Sarah Palin that “journalists and pundits” had committed a “blood libel” when they raised questions about overheated rhetoric was especially disturbing, given the grave meaning of that phrase in the history of the Jewish people."

    One can almost imagine (while conscience dreaming) that in the NY Times's eyes, Sarah Palin can do no right. Stop the ugliness, Sarah!!

    "Together we Thrive" Yea right, As long as we jump on board Obama's newly enacted, change the narrative, political campaign and stop questioning his acts and agenda. Disgusting is a gentle word in describing the political event last night masquerading as a Memorial…Allowing a nut case to guide a political agenda will only facilitate another nut case to act again in a horrendous fashion…

    I expect that we will be able to buy a "Together We Thrive" teeshirt at the Together We website soon…

    I agree with Maggott, if he wins in 2012, we'll never be rid of ObamaCare.

    And DINOMarie also makes a good point about his trying to make the rules as we go forward.

    DrJim's point is also sound. Anything Republicans do now will be lambasted as "uncivil" and not in the spirit of the new ObamaNation. Look how he's working so hard to work with them, and those mean old Republicans are determined to keep up the hate. It'll be the same song we heard for the last two years, except now the Republicans won't try to enter committee meetings only to find the locks have been changed. Now BO will actually take their calls and even *gasp* meet with them. No more "I won" and "elections have consequences" flip, dismissive remarks. Now it's all sweetness and light and working together. Because between November 2nd and his own hope for 2012, he has no choice. But that will get lost.

    We saw this coming, and now we just have to make sure that the Republicans don't fall for it. That's my big fear. I don't think the fringe media has as much influence as they did even a year ago, so it's the beltway fog we need to fight through and remind them that out here in America, we don't give a crap about "optics" or senseless, baseless attacks from the senseless and base.

    We care about our country and our Constitution. Period. Unfortunately, BO has shown nothing but contempt, even shame, for both.

    The 'service' was creepy. As I've heard others point out, it was almost as if the State-worship crowd 'crossed over' briefly to allow the reading of some scripture. I did not find the thing overly dignified, what with the clapping/hollering, or the branding with the tee shirts. Very low-brow! My prayers are for the families of the victims, and the citizens of this country. We must recognize the danger of the statism-on-steroids that we have now. We must stand up with reasoned debate, and defend Liberty from the advance of big government.
