Obama’s team of Teleprompter writers waited 4 days to see if the media’s blood libel on Arizona, guns, the Tea Party, Rush Limbaugh, and Sarah Palin had succeeded. When they realized, to their profound chagrin, that the Democrat’s immense propaganda machine had failed yet again to convince Americans that conservatives are evil, vile troglodytes who must be contained by any Marxist laws possible, they decided to go with a load of über-sappy flapdoodle. Obama’s speech writing team knew that by taking their lowly idea of the high ground, their toadies in the state-run media would duly promote their claptrap as brilliant, image-repairing oratory.
As always, the speech was really about the Healer-in-Chief himself. The evening should have been solely an expression of condolences and support for the aggrieved families. Instead, Obama used his headache-inducing speech to insinuate that all Americans suffer from some civility sickness or another. You see, in Obama’s mind every American is a ticking Jared Loughner. Everyone American is secretly a deranged misfit. Every American has a Jared Loughner inside just waiting to go berserk and start slaughtering people in cold blood. Everyone but Obama, of course.
“…But what we can’t do is use this tragedy as one more occasion to turn on one another. As we discuss these issues, let each of us do so with a good dose of humility. Rather than pointing fingers or assigning blame, let us use this occasion to expand our moral imaginations, to listen to each other more carefully, to sharpen our instincts for empathy, and remind ourselves of all the ways our hopes and dreams are bound together.”
[...] And if, as has been discussed in recent days, their deaths help usher in more civility in our public discourse, let’s remember that it is not because a simple lack of civility caused this tragedy [-- it did not --] but rather because only a more civil and honest public discourse can help us face up to our challenges as a nation, in a way that would make them proud.
Good grief, talk about a spoon full of sugar to help the medicine go down. What a tincture of platitudinous drivel, and hyocrisy. Obama, let’s not forget, is not only the President of the United States, but he is also the titular head of the Democrat Party he belongs to. This is what Obama’s real idea of civility sounds like:
* Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
* Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
* Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
* Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
* Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
* Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
* Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
* Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
* Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

Not one person who sat through Obama’s tiresome speech will change the way he or she does or says anything, and neither should they, because they didn’t kill anyone. Americans are innocent. The only guilty parties involved in the whole dreadful episode were Loughner himself, and the vituperating mainstream media who sought to politicize him.
