Victor David Hanson on Obama


The tragedy of Obama’s speech, he sacrificed absolute right and wrong.  By doing so he will be unable to wrap himself in the security of doing the hard right thing or condemning the easy wrong thing without being called a hypocrite.

The tragedy of Obama’s speech and the mindless endorsement of it was the rejection of any constant moral standard—an absolute sense of wrong and right that transcends situational ethics, context, and individual particulars. And once one jettisons such absolutes, they won’t be there when one wishes to seek refuge in them in a future hour of need.
