Media Reseach Center has a list of some of the most liberally biased momnets in Katie Couric’s rein at NBC’s Morning Show.
■ On November 13, 1991, Couric asked Jimmy Carter: “You are now considered one of the world’s foremost statesmen. You’ve been called the best ex-President this country has ever had. Your reputation has been bolstered tremendously since you left office. How does that make you feel?”
■ On August 24, 1992, after the Republican convention, Katie asked Hillary Clinton: “Do you think the American people are not ready for someone who is as accomplished and career-oriented as Hillary Clinton?”

DUmmie Despair Over 2006 Elections
It’s my birthday today (along with Clint Eastwood, Brooke Sheilds, Colin Farrell, and John George II, Elector of Saxony) and my present has come in the form of it being the LAST day on the Today Show for Katie Couric. No longer will I have to watch her early morning fawning over liberals (like Al Gore recently) or frowning at the mention of conservatives or at "unpleasant events" such as the capture of Saddam Hussein. Somehow I think her move to anchor CBS News will turn out to be a BIG MISTAKE and Katie will regret ever leaving the environs of her AM show. One of Katie’s recent activities has been as a cheerleader (along with a BIG CHUNK of the rest of the Drive-By Media) for the Democrats. In this capacity, Katie and her liberal media cohorts, are treating the upcoming Congressional and Senate elections this November as a big Democrat victory of LANDSLIDE proportions. For them it is no longer a question of whether or not the Democrats will capture the House and Senate but by how much. A lot of the DUmmies are already celebrating the "inevitable" Democrat victory this November but underlying it all is a current of nervous DOUBT and even DESPAIR over the upcoming 2006 election results as can be seen in two threads, "The GOP/ROVE machine is going to take you down AGAIN!!!" and "GOP planning to disenfranchise millions in 06, 08". So let us now watch the DUmmies despair about the upcoming elections in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, dining on a birthday cake chock full of DUmmie angst, is in the [brackets]:
The GOP/ROVE machine is going to take you down AGAIN!!!
[Ah yes! Karl Rove. But hasn't he already been INDICTED on May 12? According to TruthOut and Pied Piper Pitt, Patrick Fitgerald gave Rove 24 business hours over two weeks ago to get his affairs in order to prepare for his famous White House lawn Frog Walk.]
It is already in full swing baby, you just need to look a little closer:
1) NY Times article slamming Hillary and her marriage last week
[SNIFF! A rock solid marriage like that based on true love debased by a nefarious newspaper report.]
2) Pelosi’s very negative article this morning about how both sides are hoping she is the speaker, can you imagine a Pelosi agenda?…etc. OMG!!!
[Republicans want Pelosi as speaker? For laughs maybe?]
3) Multiple stories about Reid taking free tickets and Abramoff client’s money…etc.
[IMPOSSIBLE! Only the EVIL Republicans are capable of corruption as opposed to the Simon pure Democrats. After all, we are being flogged daily with the constant media drumbeat about the GOP "Culture of Corruption." It is one of Katie Couric's favorite themes.]
It is happening before your own eyes…Slowly, but it will get nastier soon…Frankly, I see us falling asleep at the switch AGAIN!!! Before too long, this will take hold, then Rove buries us in November.
[Despite the assurances by one William Rivers Pitt that Rove has ALREADY been indicted on May 12.]

Are the Republicans we have in office today really conservative?? Maybe witht the War on Terror and tax cuts. But those are about the only real thing conservative things that the Republicans vote on. The rest of the crap that they are deliberating is all more or less exactly what the Democrats have been proposing for ever. Maybe not as much social spending, but pork is through the roof and social spending has gone up dramatically also. Where is the Gingrich Revolution and the Reagan Republicans? They are few and far between.
Linda Chaez at Townhall has a good column about how most of the Republican in office are hypocrits and lost track of their conservative direction.
What is going on with Republicans in Congress? They’ve largely abandoned many traditional conservative principles — smaller government, belief in the free market and protection of individual, not group, rights.
Instead of acting as good stewards of the people’s money, Republican members have taken the art of "earmarking" funds for their pet projects to heights that should make big-spending Democrats blush. They’ve become so obsessed by immigration, many have adopted the centrally planned economic models of radical population-control advocates.
And now some Republicans are about to engineer the reconquista of Hawaii. There is much talk among some Republican members of Congress of late that Mexicans are trying to reconquer the American Southwest, but the real irredentist threat seems to be coming from Hawaiians, not Mexicans, with the help of a lot of Republican politicians. Instead of being the party of principle, Republicans are in danger of becoming the party of hypocrisy.

Auschwitz has been in the news recently as a result of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit. Actually there were many sections of what is known as "Auschwitz". The original labor camp which consisted of existing Polish military barracks was begun because local jails with political prisoners were overflowing. Nearby Birkenau camp was built to house the gas chambers & crematoriums. There were also various sub-camps which consisted of housing for staff and their families, factories and plants run with slave labor. In order to erect this complex and keep it isolated from the outside world, a large area had been de-populated and the existing homes and farms razed. Here is some basic information from the official Auschwitz website & I have included particular info about the infamous Block 11 and Death Wall that were in the newscasts of the Pope’s visit.
I. AUSCHWITZ – THE CONCENTRATION CAMP
Auschwitz functioned throughout its existence as a concentration camp, and over time became the largest such Nazi camp. In the first period of the existence of the camp, it was primarily Poles who were sent here by the German occupation authorities. These were people regarded as particularly dangerous: the elite of the Polish people, their political, civic, and spiritual leaders, members of the intelligentsia, cultural and scientific figures, and also members of the resistance movement, officers, and so on. Over time, the Nazis also began to send groups of prisoners from other occupied countries to Auschwitz. Beginning in 1942, Jews whom the SS physicians classified as fit for labor were also registered in the camp.
From among all the people deported to Auschwitz, approximately 400,000 people were registered and placed in the camp and its sub-camps (200,000 Jews, more than 140,000 Poles, approximately 20,000 Gypsies from various countries, more than 10,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and more than 10,000 prisoners of other nationalities). Over 50% of the registered prisoners died as a result of starvation, labor that exceeded their physical capacity, the terror that raged in the camp, executions, the inhuman living conditions, disease and epidemics, punishment, torture, and criminal medical experiments.
II. AUSCHWITZ – THE EXTERMINATION CENTER [also known as Birkenau]
Beginning in 1942, Auschwitz began to function in another way. It became the center of the mass destruction of the European Jews. The Nazis marked all the Jews living in Europe for total extermination, regardless of their age, sex, occupation, citizenship, or political views. They died only because they were Jews. After the selections conducted on the railroad platform, or ramp, newly arrived persons classified by the SS physicians as unfit for labor were sent to the gas chambers: the ill, the elderly, pregnant women, children. In most cases, 70-75% of each transport was sent to immediate death. These people were not entered in the camp records; that is, they received no serial numbers and were not registered. This is why it is possible only to estimate the total number of victims.
Historians estimate that among the people sent to Auschwitz there were at least 1,100,000 Jews from all the countries of occupied Europe, over 140,000 Poles (mostly political prisoners), approximately 20,000 Gypsies from several European countries, over 10,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and over ten thousand prisoners of other nationalities. The majority of the Jewish deportees died in the gas chambers immediately after arrival.
III. THE NUMBER OF VICTIMS
The overall number of victims of Auschwitz in the years 1940-1945 is estimated at between 1,100,000 and 1,500,000 people. The majority of them, and above all the mass transports of Jews who arrived beginning in 1942, died in the gas chambers
Block No. 11 and the Death Wall
Block No. 11
Block No. 11 is known as "the death block." It served several functions, of which the most important was that of central camp jail. Here, the SS placed male and female prisoners from all over the camp who were suspected by the camp Gestapo of belonging to the underground, planning escapes or mutinies, or maintaining contact with the outside world. Poles from outside the camp were also imprisoned here after being arrested for such offenses as offering aid to prisoners. They were subjected to brutal interrogation that usually ended in a sentence of death by being shot or hanged.
In the first years of the camp, the penal company (Strafkompanie) and corrective company (Erziehungskompanie), assigned to the harshest labor, were quartered here. Almost all newly arrived Jewish prisoners and Polish priests were initially placed in the penal company, where the number of victims was highest. The special group of prisoners assigned to burn corpses in the crematorium (Sonderkommando) was temporarily quartered in this block.
So-called police prisoners (Polizeihäftlinge) were imprisoned here after 1943. These were Poles, suspected of resistance activity and held at the disposition of the Katowice Judicial District Gestapo. They waited in this block for the verdict of the German summary court, which usually sentenced them to death.
The SS incarcerated prisoners guilty of violating the camp regulations in the punishment cells located in the basement. Prisoners sentenced to death by starvation were also placed here in 1941.
In connection with SS operational plans for beginning the total extermination of the Jews, a trial of the use of Zyklon B gas for mass killing was carried out in the basement on September 3-5, 1941. In this test, 600 Soviet prisoners of war and 250 Polish patients selected from the camp "hospital" [BLock 10] were murdered.
From 1941-1943, the SS shot several thousand people at the Death Wall in the courtyard between Blocks No. 10 and 11. Those who died here were mostly Polish political prisoners, and above all leaders and members of the underground organization, people involved in planning escapes and aiding escapers, and those maintaining contacts with the outside world. Poles brought from outside the camp were also shot here. They included hostages arrested in reprisal for Polish resistance movement operations against the German occupation authorities.
Men, women, and even children died here. Cases are also known in which prisoners of other nationalities were shot here: Jews and Soviet prisoners of war. The SS administered floggings in the courtyard, as well as the punishment known as "the post," in which prisoners were hung by their wrists, which were twisted behind their backs. The Death Wall was dismantled in 1944 on orders from the camp authorities, and the SS carried out most executions by shooting in the gas chambers and crematoria of Auschwitz II-Birkenau.
At the end of 1944, in the face of the approaching Red Army offensive, the Auschwitz administration set about removing the traces of the crimes that they had committed. They destroyed documents, dismantled some buildings, and burned others down or demolished them with explosives. The orders for the final evacuation and liquidation of the camp were issued in mid-January 1945.
Prisoners capable of marching were evacuated into the depths of the Third Reich in late January 1945, at the moment when Soviet soldiers were liberating Cracow, some 60 kilometers from the camp. Approximately 56,000 men and women prisoners were led out of Auschwitz from January 17-21 in marching columns escorted by heavily armed SS guards. Many prisoners lost their lives during this tragic evacuation, known as the "Death March." On January 27, 1945, Red Army soldiers liberated the few thousand prisoners whom the Germans had left behind in the camp.

is a dubious honor given to lawmakers, government officials, and political candidates who have shown a blatant disregard for the interests of taxpayers.Porker of the Month
We have 2 people in this months awards. They are none other than Sen. Thad Cochran
(R-Miss) and Trent Lott (R-Miss.).
Miss. Sens. Thad Cochran and Trent Lott are Porkers of the Month
Washington, D.C. Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) today named Mississippi Senators Thad Cochran (R) and Trent Lott (R) Porkers of the Month for adding $700 million for the “railroad to nowhere” to the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2006 (H.R. 4929). The Senate’s version of the bill for operations in
and hurricane aid in the
costs $109 billion. President Bush requested $92.2 billion and the House passed a $91.9 billion version in March.
The “railroad to nowhere” is one of dozens of earmarks tacked onto the Senate bill, including $3.9 billion for agricultural subsidies, $500 million for a corporate welfare bailout of Northrop Grumman, and $6 million for two
sugar plantations. It comes on the heels of the controversy over the $223 million “bridge to nowhere” for
in the 2005 highway authorization bill.
The railroad controversy arose after Hurricane Katrina destroyed a portion of the CSX rail line in
. CSX spent $300 million to fix the line and a company spokesperson said, “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with it.” The $700 million would be spent to divert the tracks a few miles to the north, making way for U.S. 90 to be rebuilt along the rail bed. Sens. Cochran and Lott say the switch is necessary for safety reasons and to protect the track from future hurricanes. However, The Washington Post reported that “much of the rail line along the
would remain in hurricane danger, and the proposed rerouting would affect only a small part.” The Post noted that “
’s rail-accident rate from 2001 to 2005 reached a 30-year low.”
The real reason behind this move appears to be economic. The stretch of land along the railroad is prime real estate for tourism development. As reported in the Post, the highway would be turned into a “beach boulevard” running through cities such as
. The Governor’s Commission on Recovery, Rebuilding and Renewal in
said the plan would encourage tourists to “spend more time strolling among the casinos and taking in the views.”
The “railroad to nowhere” is yet another reason for earmark and budget reform in Congress. Members of Congress attach pet projects to emergency supplemental bills to elude the scrutiny of the normal budget process. The federal government plays a legitimate role in rebuilding essential infrastructure in areas hit by natural disasters. But relocating a newly-rebuilt rail line in order to help land developers is an abuse of the taxpayers’ trust.
For fattening the deficit, classifying an unnecessary project as “emergency” spending, and failing to learn the lessons of the infamous “bridge to nowhere” in Alaska, Sens. Cochran and Lott are Co-Porkers of the Month for May 2006.
Citizens Against Government Waste is the nation’s largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government. Porker of the Month is a dubious honor given to lawmakers, government officials, and political candidates who have shown a blatant disregard for the interests of taxpayers.
This is probably only the tip of the iceberg on what atrocities are happening in Iran. The Religion of Peace, my ass. These thugs in power in Iran need to be eliminated. This type of totalitarian non-sesnse in the name of religion needs to be stoppped. The moderate muslims need to get their act together and rid thier religion of these types of monsters. How can a religion use rape and murder to keep people in line. We have people getting killed for the offense of wearing shorts while playing tennis. And we have suicide bombers wanting to blow themselves up with their own babies for the glory of Allah. The moderate Muslims need to speak out and Islam needs to get its house in order and stop these atrocities.
And here we got a story form Iran:
Child Abuse – Mullah Style
By Philip Sherwell
Telegraph.co.uk | May 30, 2006A
leading Iranian pro-democracy and women’s activist, who was jailed on
trumped-up charges last year, has revealed how the clerical regime
cynically deploys systemic sexual violence against female dissidents in
the name of Islam.
Tolouee, 40, was beaten up by Iranian intelligence agents and subjected
to a horrific sexual assault when she refused to sign forced
confessions. It was only when they threatened to burn her two children
to death in front of her that she agreed to put her name to the
just as shocking as the physical abuse were the chilling words of the
man who led the attack. "When I asked how he could do this to me, he
said that he believed in only two things – Islam and the rule of the
clerics," Miss Tolouee told The Sunday Telegraph last week in an
interview in Washington after she fled Iran.
I know of no religious morality that can justify what they did to me,
or other women. For these people, religion is only a tool for
dictatorship and abuse. It is a regime of prejudice against women,
against other regimes, against other ethnic groups, against anybody who
thinks differently from them."
Miss Tolouee’s account of her
ordeal confirms recent reports from opposition groups that Iranian
intelligence officials use sexual abuse against female prisoners as an
interrogation technique and even rape young women before execution so
that they cannot reach heaven as virgins.
women from the Islamic world are willing to discuss such matters, even
with each other, but Miss Tolouee said that the regime routinely
committed sexual attacks against female detainees.
dropped her voice to a whisper and sobbed quietly as she described her
experience, hoping not to upset her six-year-old son, Nima, as he
picked at a piece of pizza in a hotel restaurant.
he tried to comfort her. "I don’t like it when my mummy talks about
prison. It makes her cry," he said sadly. Miss Tolouee, who founded a
women’s group in Iranian Kurdistan and then launched a monthly magazine
that was closed down by the judiciary last summer, was detained in the
city of Sanandaj in August after taking part in anti-regime
demonstrations that spread across Kurdish areas.
armed men and three armed women barged into my house at night and took
me away," she said. "My kids were terrified and crying. I was
questioned all night by different interrogators and then thrown alone
into a cell."
was held in solitary confinement in the prison of the feared internal
intelligence service, with only a blanket and a cup that often had to
serve as a lavatory.
the first six nights, she was taken to a basement where interrogators
demanded that she admit to organising the protests, and also that she
identify co-conspirators on a list of names they put to her.
I wouldn’t do what they wanted, they slapped me. But after the sixth
night, the routine changed. I was left alone in a small dark room with
two men. One was the assistant prosecutor and called himself Amiri. The
other had a filthy mouth and said terrible things. They started
slapping me again. For the rest of the night they did to me what no
woman should ever experience. Amiri said, ‘I’m going to hang you, but
before I hang you, I will make an example of you so that no woman will
dare to open her mouth here again’." He then sexually assaulted her.
she asked Amiri how he could act like that, he told her that only Islam
and clerical rule were important to him. The attack left her badly
bruised and bleeding internally, but she refused to sign the papers
they put before her. To her assailants’ fury, she demanded to see a
lawyer and cited international treaties on human rights.

And finally when she would not give in they told her that they would burn her children to death in front of her.
This is just too funny. Maybe this is where the moonbats get thier stories.

Ted Nugent: Off his rocker?
He owns 350 guns, wants to nuke Iraq and makes his friend George W look like a liberal. Now 1970s heavy metal star Ted Nugent has his sights set on a new target: entering US politics
Published: 28 May 2006
During the private inaugural party at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, in 2000, President George W Bush glanced across the room and recognised a man who – by his own account – has urinated on a nun, soiled his trousers for a week in order to avoid the draft, and been detained on a charge of indecent exposure, after experiencing difficulties with his loincloth in Little Rock, Arkansas. The President confronted him as a matter of urgency.
"When he noticed me," Ted Nugent recalls, "he was surrounded by these huge bankrollers from his campaign. He literally swept past all of them and said: ‘Laura! Look who’s here! It’s Ted!’ Then he hugged me and took me by the shoulders. He said: ‘Just keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t think that we don’t know what you’re up to out here. Stay on course. You’re doing great.’"
Like Jesus, Gandhi or Hitler, Nugent tends to inspire this kind of extreme reaction. He rarely gives interviews to the British press; the last time he did, some years ago, he managed what is possibly the most extraordinary achievement of his remarkable career – proving too right-wing for the Daily Telegraph.
Ted Nugent, 57, best known for his 1977 hit "Cat Scratch Fever", has sold 40 million records over four decades. The Detroit-born guitarist, once described as the missing link between Iggy Pop and the White House, used to perform dressed as a Neanderthal – a prophetic gesture, some would argue, given his emergence, in middle age, as an arch-conservative National Rifle Association board member, and obsessive hunter. Nugent, who has personally slaughtered all the meat he’s eaten since 1971, hosts two reality shows from the 300-acre ranch – just up the road from Bush’s compound in Crawford – where he lives with his second wife Shemane and son Rocco, 15. In 2004, while filming Surviving Ted, in which city dwellers strive to replicate his uncompromising lifestyle, he almost severed his (omega) leg with a chainsaw. The musician, who owns seven other properties in the US, arranged to meet me at a truck-stop café in the centre of this one-street Texan town. Famous for songs such as "My Baby Likes My Butter on Her Grits", "Pussywhipped" and "My Love is Like a Tire Iron", Nugent is not known for his intuitive connection to his feminine side; he arrives wearing a camouflage cowboy hat, his shorts supported by a belt housing a Glock revolver. I don’t, at this stage, notice the .22 which he will discharge in 45 minutes’ time.
We sit down to coffee, eggs and grits. Ted is 6ft 3in; to get a sense of his general demeanour you could do worse than imagine the body of John Wayne possessed by the spirit of Ian Paisley in one of his less conciliatory moods. He launches into a fevered monologue about how much safer Britain would be with more guns on its streets.
"Never has there been such an upsurge in crime since they confiscated all your weapons. Why don’t you arm yourselves? You Limeys have a zipper that’s locked in the closed position, because you don’t have a constitution. You’re rewarded for shutting the fuck up."
He explains his political philosophy which, as I understand it, is based on extending the death penalty to a far wider range of crimes than homicide, then arming any survivors to the teeth. He owns around 350 guns himself – more than one for every household in Crawford.
British police who don’t want to carry firearms are, Nugent says, "out of their minds. I say if somebody robs you, shoot ‘em. I’d like all thieves killed. And all rapists. And carjackers. No more graffiti. No more…" – this next phrase is a Spoonerism, rather than some Texan term for gross indecency – "snatch-pursing."
"For an unarmed force," I suggest, "the British police have shot quite a few people. Did you hear about Jean Charles de Menezes?"
"That was horrible. An American cop would have just beat the shit out of him."
Nugent has had a Sheriff Deputy’s badge since 1982, and recently assisted with federal raids, "kicking down doors and arresting people". A keen admirer of fellow-guitarist Tony Blair, he abhors drugs, including alcohol, and maintains that he has never used such substances. He considers homosexuality morally wrong. He speaks about Muslims in a way which, were he to repeat it on globally networked television, might endanger his life. Nugent is aiming to run as Governor of Michigan in 2010.

Another 50 conservative songs by John Miller at NRO. He put this list together from the numerous e-mails elicited by the posting of his top 50 conservative songs. He lists and links the reactions from lefties protesting the theft of what they consider THEIR MUSIC. Hah! This Republican was staying in an apartment across from the panhandle of Golden Gate Park during the Summer of Love and listening to the Jefferson Airplane next door praticing for the Monteray Pop Festival. Top that, Moonbats!
50 more conservative rock songs.
By John J. Miller
My article on the 50 greatest conservative rock songs has struck a chord, so to speak. The New York Times called it “surprisingly persuasive.” The Boston Herald also noticed it. In Britain, the Independent said that “Dylan will never sound the same again.” Some guy named Pete Townshend posted a comment about #1 song “Won’t Get Fooled Again,” and a Scottish newspaper tracked down the Proclaimers, who appear at #42, for a remark. The blogosphere has been active as well: I’ve enjoyed reading responses here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
The most amusing reply appeared in several forms on left-wing blogs: Hands off my rock music, right-wing scum! This notion was expressed most succinctly by Dave Marsh, described in the Times as “the longtime rock critic and avowed lefty.” He thought the list was “a desperate effort by the right to co-opt popular culture.” In other words: The 62 million Americans who voted for President Bush’s reelection don’t actually participate in the creation and consumption of pop culture, but we steal it and twist it in dastardly ways. . . .
The smartest commentary focused on the meanings of the songs themselves, and quarreling over what’s on and off the list. The most frequent type of reply, judging from the e-mails I’ve seen, proposed additional songs for the list. Suggestions such as these made the whole enterprise possible in the first place: Last fall, when I solicited nominations for great conservative rock songs, I received hundreds of thought-provoking ideas. The fact that so many people interpreted “Won’t Get Fooled Again” as fundamentally counterrevolutionary, for instance, convinced me that it ought to sit atop the list.
Here’s a few that are on the 51 – 100 list. Check out all of them HERE
“Aces High,” by Iron Maiden. ; buy CD on Amazon.com
A tribute to the martial valor of the fighter pilots who saved Britain in 1940. On a tour in the 1980s, Iron Maiden opened concerts with a snippet from Churchill’s “Never Surrender” speech and then launched into this rocker. (My own tribute to the everlasting greatness of Iron Maiden may be read here.)
“Catch Me Now I’m Falling,” by The Kinks. ; buy CD on Amazon.com
“I remember when you were down / You would always come running to me / I never denied you and I would guide you / Through all of your difficulties / Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world / This is Captain America calling / I bailed you out when you were down on your knees / So will you catch me now I’m falling.”
“I’d Love to Change the World,” by Ten Years After. buy CD on Amazon.com
An anti-hippy classic. Many conservatives respond favorably to an ironic line in its first verse: “Tax the rich, feed the poor / Till there are no rich no more.”
The NYT Publisher had an incredibly left leaning rant at a commeencement speech at State University of New York at New Paltz. And this is the guy that publishes the NYT, but no they have no biases here. Is it just just a figmant of my imagination or is he saying he is sorry that Bush was elected and we didn’t have Kerry or AlGore in there to make things right. But there is no bias in the MSM.
Here is an excerpt found at Media Research Center.
I’ll start with an apology.
When I graduated from college in 1974, my fellow students and I had just ended the war in Vietnam and ousted President Nixon [light cheering]. Okay, okay, that’s not quite true. I mean yes, the war did end and yes, President Nixon did resign in disgrace but maybe there were larger forces at play.
Either way, we entered the real world committed to making it a better, safer, cleaner, more equal place. We were determined not to repeat the mistakes of our predecessors. We had seen the horrors and futility of war and smelled the stench of corruption in government.
Our children, we vowed, would never know that.
So, well, sorry [pause and applause]. It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
You weren’t supposed to be graduating into an America fighting a misbegotten war in a foreign land [louder applause].
You weren’t supposed to be graduating into a world where we are still fighting for fundamental human rights, whether it’s the rights of immigrants to start a new life; or the rights of gays to marry; or the rights of women to choose [applause].
You weren’t supposed to be graduating into a world where oil still drove policy and environmentalists have to fight relentlessly for every gain.
You weren’t. But you are. And for that I’m sorry.
