On restoring civility in American politics

President Obama calls for civility after Representative Giffords was shot:

"At a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized - at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do - it's important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds."
And Jim Hoffa introduces the president in Detroit:
"And you see it everywhere, it is the tea party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know what? They've got a war, they got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan, and America. We're going to win that war....

"President Obama, this is your army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of a bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong."
Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
