Arizona memorial

The Speech: Did you watch President Obama's remarks at the memorial last night for the victims in the Arizona shootings? What did you think? Did it remind you of some of the speeches he gave as a candidate? Is it the best one he has given since he took office? Have these types of speeches been missing since he became president or has there just not been an opportunity like this before? I'm not sure the word, "opportunity", is the best word here, but I think you get my point.

What Now?--Jared Loughner is in custody. He may have shot as many as 20 people in that Arizona rampage, according to authorities. What should the government do about it? More gun control restrictions? More funding for mental illnesses? Change talk radio? We've heard it all so far. But was there really anything anyone could have done to stop this?

The speech:
I tuned-in to see a memorial service. I guess, somehow, my TV got stuck on a political rally instead, though.

Oh give me a break....he is supposed to be there for support and to lead....which is exactly what he did. Turn off the right wing noise machine and open your eyes.
