Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

After hearing the president’s shameful remarks about how “Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago,” I couldn’t help but notice what he didn’t say: that 35 years ago he also could have been any one of the hundreds of young black men killed every year by gang and drug violence (“Obama’s race speech,” Comment & Analysis, Tuesday).

President Obama also didn’t seem to realize that nearly 52 years ago he also could have been any one of the millions of innocent victims killed by the abortion industry every year. Where is his concern for those lives lost? It should be obvious to everyone by now that Mr. Obama looks for issues he can use to fire up his base as a distraction so he can try push through his radical agenda.

As in “The Wizard of Oz,” don’t look behind the curtain. It’s sad that our president has become a panderer in chief.
