At today’s press conference President Obama retreated into his standard rhetorical routine, a civics lecture. No one is quite sure why he continually does this or who the audience is. Nonetheless, during the course of the 8th grade social studies lesson – which ended by reciting the pledge of allegiance (seriously) – Obama targeted bloggers as people who “profit from conflict.” Moments later, Obama then encouraged people to “argue for their position.” To get involved, speak their mind, and promote their values.
I guess just don’t do it online? Carrier pigeons for reform!
