Obama and Bush speak at Dallas memorial service

Posted By on Tue, Jul 12, 2016 at 2:27 PM

President Obama and former President George W. Bush spoke at a memorial service in Dallas today for police officers slain during a demonstration about police use of force against black suspects.

The emphasis was on shared beliefs, not division; service, and sacrifice.

Coverage here. Quotable:

Obama: “We ask the police to do too much, and we ask too little of ourselves."

Bush: "Too often we judge other groups by their worst examples, but judge ourselves by our best intentions."

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
