Obama's Notre Dame Speech Strikes 'Forceful Blow' Against Culture Wars, WP reports
Edited on Wed May-20-09 06:39 PM by Mike 03
Nice article about Obama is such an improvement over our past presidents when it comes to uniting rather than dividing.

"President Obama during his speech at Notre Dame, "fought back" antiabortion-rights protesters "not with harsh words but with the most devastating weapons in his political arsenal: a call for 'open hearts,' 'open minds,' 'fair-minded words' and a search for 'common ground,'" Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne writes. Dionne continues that as "Obama's opponents seek to reignite the culture wars," the president has "refused to join" and instead "opted for humility."

Continuation of article at link.

It is so hard for me to fathom how any Democrat could see President Obama as "more of the same" when compared to the last eight years. I don't see it.

ON EDIT:

Although, I have to confess, I do have a problem with the issue regarding non-release of torture-related materials, and the proper prosecution of these war crimes, have stated so in the past.

1. I post about Conservadems who ARE more of the same.
I think they will harm Obama if they continue.

Ultimately he is responsible for what they do, but they are quite powerful. They worry me.

2. I think maybe I know who you might be talking about, but not sure.
If so, I agree with you.

3. So, abortion rights are a 'culture war'. No, they're more important than that. nt
