So Obama has declared that if he had a son he’d have to “think long and hard” about allowing him to play football because of all of the violence in the game, especially at the college and professional levels.
Questions that he should be repeatedly asked at his next press conference (if he ever holds one again) are these: “Mr. President, the violence of war is many orders of magnitude greater than with football, a mere game. Would you also stop your son, if you had one, from joining the military?” How about your daughters? You recently announced that women are now to engage in frontline combat. Would you intervene if one of your own daughters volunteered to participate in this kind of up-close mass murder of foreigners?”1:56 pm on January 29, 2013
