My Thoughts Exactly...

Do Obama and Voters Have Blood on Their Hands in the Giffords Shooting?

An overflow crowd gathered
for the memorial service in Tucson.

Most analysis of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting in Arizona has focused on hate-filled, right-wing rhetoric as the impetus for the gunman's act of violence. The news turned yesterday to President Barack Obama's appearance at a memorial service for the shooting victims.

There is irony in Obama's speech because, in our view, he helped set the stage for the tragedy in Tucson. The president undoubtedly did not intend for blood to be shed at a political event. But his limp response to Republican lawlessness during the George W. Bush administration--plus voters' endorsement of a right-wing agenda in the 2010 midterm elections--helped create the toxic environment that led to the Giffords shooting.

I was saying it at the time...and it is true now...truer really...

Another Obama Administration failure.
