And it must start from this blog.

I'm specifically referring to this blog post by the front page gods.

This is getting annoying. A tragedy of historic proportions happens and quickly turns into stupidity from this blog.

First, no front page editor has the right to instruct the president on what to say. And, if some pompous person is going to do that, at least sound grown-up.

The facts of this tragedy are hardly fleshed out; we don't know anything about motive. It is extremely irresponsible to make assumptions at this point.

Secondly, no president can comment about a tragedy by pointing figures at unknown people. To suggest so is stupid.

I have come to accept a lot of knee-jerk hatred of this president by many here. I thought this tragedy was different but reading the comments under Meteor Blade's front page blog it is clear that that is not to be expected.

I am sick of the knee-jerk condescension(which reeks of racism), mocking and insults at the president from supposed liberals on this blog.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
