New Tone strikes again
It seems President Obama is taking the Democratic mantra of tolerance and non partisanship to a new level. His comments over the weekend seem to extend a hand of faith to the GOP, in hopes that we can all get along, and inject some common sense into the upcoming campaign season.
Now that I have your attention…
Over the weekend,
CandidatePresident Obama made the claim that the 2012 election will be “a contest of values.” That was about as conciliatory as he got, from the sound of the article.
“You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change,” he said, to applause. “It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have health care and booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay.
“That’s not reflective of who we are,” Mr. Obama said. “This is a choice about the fundamental direction of our country. 2008 was an important direction. 2012 is a more important election.”
I see the use of strawmen in an argument is in no danger of dying off. Perhaps that’s some more jobs “saved or created”.
He said if their friends and neighbors are reading the Wall Street Journal editorial page or watching Fox News the donors at this event need to talk to “push back” on their “inadequate information.”
Of course, David Plouffe is an expert on such discourse. Just tune in to him, he’ll set you straight. (More on this guy later, when I figure out what’s going on with the current spending bill, and his comments on the Sunday shows.)
Take a look at the article, if your blood pressure isn’t high enough, yet. Also, quit using Norton, because that’s who sponsored this fundraiser. “He made the comments Sunday at a fundraiser at the Silicon Valley home of John Thompson, chairman of Symantec Corp.”
