Im sure that I'm not the only one who noticed but there was what I thought was an interesting change in Obama's rhetorical approach in the wake of Sunday's assassinations in Baton Rouge.
Previously, every time there has been some horrible act of violence, be it perpetrated by Islamists extremists or by some black extremists, Obama's statements have always contained some passing phrase sympathy for families of the victims, followed immediately by open caveats about alleged systemic police racism and an attack on the 2nd Amendment.
Today we heated none of that. What we got was a call for national unity and a statement about these attacks on police officers being an attack on us all and on the very structure of society.
So then, is our feckless fool of a President finally starting to realize at last that he has overplayed the Alinsky card and the blowback is getting beyond either his or a compliant media's control? Well no shit Sherlock.
