What Obama Didn't Say and Doesn't Believe

Reader comment on item: "America's Chickens are Coming Home to Roost"

Instead of the speech Obama made, excusing Rev.Wright and attempting to compare his obscene speeches and behavior to his own aunt and other ordinary white people, what could have Obama said? Victor Davis Hanson thought to write a speech for him, "What Could Have Been Said."

I think it's important to keep in mind that this imaginary speech is what Obama didn't say -- and didn't mean and doesn't believe.

"Third, Americans were appalled, as was I, at my minister cursing the United States. But we must always appreciate the unique nature of America, an experiment that unites a multiplicity of religions, races and ethnicities, and endures only to the degree we all adhere to a common set of values. We must never think that because the United States has sometimes not been perfect, it is not good.

"The hard work of creating and improving the United States required centuries; the easier task of tearing apart America can be done in a generation. But neither you nor I can or will allow that to happen. Thank you, and God bless the United States."
