Obama on 9/10: GOP Holding Middle Class 'Hostage'; Obama on 9/11: We Must Have Diversity and Tolerance

Friday he identified the enemy.
President Barack Obama accused Republicans on Friday of holding the middle class hostage and defended his efforts to stimulate the sluggish economy as he tries to reverse grim election prospects for his fellow Democrats in November.

With opinion polls showing more Americans questioning his economic leadership, Obama used a rare news conference at the White House to hammer home a campaign-style message painting Republicans as obstructionist and the party for the rich.
Today he's in a much more forgiving mood.
President Barack Obama appealed to an unsettled nation Saturday to honor the memory of the Sept. 11 attacks by hewing to the values of diversity and tolerance. "We will not sacrifice the liberties we cherish or hunker down behind walls of suspicion and mistrust," the president declared.
Except for Republicans. You just can't trust those obstructionist hostage takers.

Speaking of hostages, the Iranians decided against releasing an American today. Just don't be intolerant and question their actions.
