Like "Service," More conservative claptrap: O has been urging "responsibility" on the part of blacks, a la Cosby. Will he now be urging "responsibility" on the part of powerful institutions, or will he promote legislation that regulates and controls them? No wonder that Brian can quote a conservative who urges "responsibility". For them, thee absurd notion of moral transformation of bankers et al is an easy solution that evades the real problems.
