Beware Obama’s Implicit Premises

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

Interesting observations on Obama’s inauguration speech by Yuval Levin writing at the Corner in The Inauguration: The most problematic parts of the speech, for me, had to do with the theme that always bothers me at such occasions: the dismissal of political differences as insignificant and petty products of irresponsibility, rather than of serious and […]
