Moral hectoring from the left

Someone commented at Ann Althouse's blog on Mrs. Obama's assessment of the Tucson tragedy: "Anyone else growing weary of moral hectoring from the Party That Frowns On Moral Hectoring?"

Mrs. Obama: "We can teach them [our children] the value of tolerance – the practice of assuming the best, rather than the worst, about those around us. We can teach them to give others the benefit of the doubt, particularly those with whom they disagree."

I have trouble forgetting how she dissed us--all Americans--during the campaign and election period. Where was her tolerance for differences then?

There's not a shred of evidence and no dots to connect, but the party of misinformation just keeps rolling on. This seems to be the only transparent thing about the Obama administration.

I'm not familiar with Charles Blow, but he's got a Facebook page and I clicked on it along with 8,000+ other people. He's NYT graphics editor.

You're seeing this through a Christian filter--this sort of political frenzy we saw at the Tucson memorial is a religion to the Democrats. For them, turning a memorial for the dead into a political rally to kick off the campaign of 2012 is a worship service.
