It's no secret that I want to see President Obama defeated for the good of America. When, however, he does something right, e.g., killing Osama bin Ladin, we should note it.
I was concerned when I heard that the President would hold a press conference after visiting some of the victims from the Aurora shooting. I thought for sure he would turn it into another "I, I, I, I" moment.
Well, I was wrong. The President acted Presidential. He gave a classy and heart-felt statement at the hospital in which he thanked all those who had worked so hard to save victims, and expressed genuine condolences to the families of those who did not survive. His statement was brief, eloquent, to the point, dignified, and even touching. He did not take questions and did not turn it into a political event.
The President did well, and those of us who oppose him politically should recognize that.
