Maybe It's Time to Give Obama a Break on Warren
I shouldn't have to say this first, but I will, I'm not defending Rick Warren.
But if the worst thing that happens during the Obama presidency is that he lets a hate-mongering idiot speak at his inauguration I'll be ecstatic. Stop and think for a second. George Bush TOOK US TO WAR UNDER FALSE PRETENSES. He also APPOINTED people that don't believe in global warming to senior positions in the Environmental Protection Agency. He sanctioned torture. That's just the preamble to any rant about the disastrous last eight years.
George Bush gave away all our money to his rich friends. He betrayed New Orleans. He mandated abstinence only education.
So can we stop on the Rick Warren thing for a moment? Yeah, Rick Warren sucks, but we didn't complain when Obama participated in debate with John McCain hosted by Warren. Because we hadn't won yet we were willing to go inside their house; now we want to burn it down.
