Graduation day open line; let us now praise President Obama

Posted By on Sat, May 7, 2016 at 5:02 PM

Here's the Saturday open line. I happened to read the remarks President Obama prepared to deliver at the graduation ceremony at Howard University, the historically black institution in Washington. It's good. Upbeat. He emphasizes the progress that has been made in the country, racially and in other ways. Sure, there's a way to go.

Shoot me. He's been a remarkable president, particularly against the concerted effort by the Republican Party to guarantee that he fail and the damage that did to Democratic allies in the process.

There's never been a better time to be young, gifted and black in America, he declared. (He added that he was getting old.)
