Obama's moment of silence: What could he say?

President Obama stepped out of the White House this morning, bowed his head and led the nation in a moment of silence for the victims of the Tucson shootings.

Members of the media cried at how well he did nothing.

Rather than call on Jesus, or at least God, to watch over those wounded and to receive those killed, rather than call on the nation for introspection and putting an end to unjustified laying of blame, the president literally did nothing.

Really, though, nothing else could be expected. Obama could hardly pin the shootings on the Right when the prime suspect was so clearly the product of the Left. And he couldn't reasonably say anything about "vitriol" or "hate speech" in the conservative media, like his cohorts have tried to do all weekend, because he has been the source of much of it.

Just to enlighten those on the Left who are deaf when it comes to their own hatred, here is a partial list of incidents where the president himself seemed to be encouraging violence by his followers:

  • “Don’t you think we’re not keeping score, brother.”
  • “Bring it on.”
  • “Get ready for hand-to-hand combat with your fellow Americans.”
  • “I want all Americans to get in each others faces!"
  • “You bring a knife to a fight, pal, we’ll bring a gun.”
  • "Republicans are our enemies."
  •  “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
  • “Hit back twice as hard.”
  • “We talk to these folks … so I know whose ass to kick."
  • Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat.”
  • “It’s time to fight for it.”
  • “Punish your enemies.”
  • “I’m itching for a fight.”
  • “The Cambridge Police acted stupidly.”
Moral of this story for the Left: "Remove the plank from your own eye."
