“We know that there were other teachers who barricaded themselves inside classrooms, and kept steady through it all,” President Obama said at last night’s interfaith memorial service for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, “and reassured their students by saying ‘wait for the good guys, they’re coming;’ ‘show me your smile.’ And we know that good guys came.” Yes, but they came too late for 20 children and six adults. Perhaps if someone in the school had been armed . . . And while we’re talking about failed rhetoric, am I the only one who thought that the President’s decision to issue a [thinly veiled] call for new gun control during the memorial was an abomination? Has he no shame? No sense of decorum, dignity or respect?
