Great speech, Mr. President

This past weekend, our President gave a speech to some graduates:

The… way to keep our democracy healthy is to maintain a basic level of civility in our public debate…. we cannot expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down. You can disagree with a certain policy without demonizing the person who espouses it. You can question someone’s views and their judgment without questioning their motives or their patriotism. Throwing around phrases like “socialist” and “Soviet-style takeover;” “fascist” and “right-wing nut” may grab headlines, but it also has the effect of comparing our government, or our political opponents, to authoritarian, and even murderous regimes.

Great speech, Mr. President. Too bad is was all a farce. This comes from a man who just called us all "teabaggers" today.

however, if yours seems being running the batteries down, too quickly,
you may want an overhaul. You like exercise and you invest some time outdoors
