Honoring the President's Request for Civility - Page 2
She ALSO writes...
Hannan, the man is POTUS, it's his job to be able to speak to the country as a unifier. Did you happen to notice that after he left the stage he ran to momma FLOTUS? WTF! He was obliged firstly to console the families of the affected, who he in effect snubbed. No class whatsoever.
Well, he DID spend a good chunk of the day earlier with the families, but I guess he COULD have jumped over the barriers that were set up between the official dignitaries and the separate section for the families and done a little more hugging — but then, wouldn't you be complaining about "Grandstanding for the Cameras"?
ena also had a problem with Michelle Obama not getting her hand over her heart FAST enough when they started singing the national anthem.
Though the camera moved quickly away...I was sure as hell that someone smacked her on the ass and told her the national anthem was already starting and her hand was not on her heart.
Stay consistent, ena! That's what we love about you guys! Find fault in even the SMALLEST, IMAGINED slight!
As has been pointed out elsewhere on these pages, there is no justification for one side or the other to accuse their opponents of having the monopoly on inflammatory speech and I repeat my accusation that it is the standard of media reporting that inflames so many issues. Sensationalist reporting, using quotes out of context and simply ignoring facts to create a headline is grossly irresponsible. When you read or hear some desperate journalist offer an interpretation of what someone is supposed to have said, you know not to trust that report and to seek what was actually said.
CONSISTENCY! GOOD! Liberals do it TOO (although there are woefully few instances where liberals have taken rhetoric and turned it into violent action and the list of conservatives walking into museums with guns, flying airplanes into IRS buildings, killing cops, PLANNING to kill cops, etc., is long and frightening.) President Obama said "if they bring a knife, we bring a gun." But I'm not seeing the liberals reacting by strapping on pieces and threatening members of congress.
For sheer multitasking ability, you can't beat "auntycensorship"'s mixture of birtherism and homophobia in this comment.
Looking at the various biographies of this Manchurian the title to this piece probably should have read "Obama takes it both ways".Continued on the next page
