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.

Why is anyone allowed to have a speechwriter? Isn't that like letting your mother do your homework for you?
