Left/Right Politics as Usual

I didn’t think too much of the uproar fomented by the conservative right excoriating President Obama for speaking to schoolchildren. But on the other hand, I have similar feelings about the left basically trumping up blanket charges of racism toward those that are protesting the administration’s policies.

No doubt there are some misguided souls who actually do have a beef with the president because he’s black. But to insinuate that the movement as a whole is racially-tinged is puzzling, unnecessary, and unhelpful.
