President Obama’s causal argument today concerning equivalence between the Holocaust and the plight of the Palestinians was the worst part of a lousy speech, but I have a handful of e-mails arguing that it wasn’t so bad.
OK, fill in the next paragraph:
“Slavery was a terrible scourge upon the men and women who suffered under it, and a deep stain on the American republic and upon every slave-owner and every American who was silent about its inherent evil
On the other hand….”
Sometimes there is no “other hand,” and the attempt to create one today was deeply dishonest pandering by the president.
