The president’s speech was an opportunity for the country to turn the page from the partisan smearing that has characterized much of what he called the national “conversation” since the Arizona tragedy. And it appears that he is doing just that.
When he urged us to avoid laying the blame for the crime “at the feet of those who happen to think different than we do,” that was exactly what he needed to say. Of course, that is exactly what most of the liberal media has been doing since Saturday.
The question is, will his supporters listen to that advice?
