Another Appeasement To His Enemies
by Deacon Blues
There is no rationale whatsoever for Obama to select Dr. Rick Warren of the Saddleback Church to give his inaugural invocation.
None. Zip. Nada.
What's the matter Senator? There weren't any progressive ministers out there who actually believed in social justice without the fiery, extremist rhetoric of both the far left and right wing?
This is very disappointing and a little emblematic of a man who is trying too hard to appease segments of this society who don't have an interest in a successful Obama administration in the first place.
Giving Warren this platform now is politically stupid. Inevitably, Obama will do something to "disappoint" the anti-gay, anti-choice Warren down the road, and only someone naive or too taken with his own ability to charm would think he can avoid this.
