    Wonderful memorial service! I think the President is right, we all (both sides) need to think about whether what we say will have a positive effect or not before we say it. I know I have room to improve in this area. I hope others will come to the same realization.

    That was a great part of the speech. And I actually gave Obama kudos on my facebook status for once when he came out and basically dismissed those many on his side that have made a political mockery of this, essentially pointing out that using this tragedy to condemn "hateful rhetoric" by using hateful rhetoric themselves are wrong to do so and hurtful.

    Obama always was good at giving speeches.

    It's the "being a president" part he struggles with.

    Thank you for that wonderful bit of partisan rhetoric that had no real purpose in this thread. It was much appreciated. I almost was going to start believing that I liked Obama as a President if not for your wonderful insight in a thread specifically about a specific moment in his speech and not about his job as president at all.

    sigh
