141. "Fawning praise."
Edited on Wed May-18-11 12:38 PM by namahage
This sound like someone who only does "fawning praise?"

I have many criticisms of the Obama administration. I wrote angrily about his choice of Rick Warren to deliver a prayer at the inauguration. I have spoken on television about my disagreement with drone attacks in Pakistan and been critical of the administrations initial choice to prosecute DADT cases. I worked for more progressive health care reform legislation and supported organizations that resisted the reproductive rights compromises in the bill. Ive been scathing in public remarks and writings about the Presidents education policy. My husband leads a non-profit that is suing HUD for its implementation of a discriminatory formula in the post-Katrina Road Home program. The president has never called me. I got my ticket to the inauguration from Canada! (Because Canadian Broadcast Television who gave me a chance to narrate the days events.) But I can tell the difference between a substantive criticism and a personal attack. It is clear to me that Wests ego, not the health of American democracy, is the wounded creature in this story.
