The New Civility

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on July 10, 2012

Some enterprising reporter should ask Barack Obama what he thinks about Democrats posting videos of the homes and addresses of Republican candidates. Said reporter should ask whether this kind of tactic could undermine the safety of Republicans and their families. Said reporter should ask whether this kind of tactic is really appropriate in the aftermath of the Gabrielle Giffords shooting. Said reporter should also ask how this complies with calls for a “new tone” and “new civility” that issued from the president after the shooting.

It would be very interesting to hear what the president of the United States has to say about this issue. Certainly more interesting than hearing about the latest substance-free negative attacks regarding Mitt Romney’s compliance with the tax laws.
