    Everything that a president says or does, even if not meant to be political and shouldn't be seen as political, is effectively political. A smart politician, which Obama is, knows this, and makes the most of it. In last night's speech he tried to comfort the families, survivors, locals and nation, make some sense of such senselessness, AND begin the process of trying to lessen the chances that such tragedies happen again. Which is going to involve politics, and being a politician, he can't avoid that even if he wanted to.

    What an idiot Krauthammer so often is. And an offensive one at that.

      not that the speech wasn't at all political (although it was clearly much more than that), but that Krauthammer is incredibly offensive (putting it nicely), because he's obviously smart enough to know better.

      The only entitlement that needs reforming is the inbred belief of the 0.1% that they are entitled to 99.9% of the wealth and 100% of the power.
