President Barack Obama Confronted Demonstrators at San Francisco Fundraiser
God bless San Francisco for its first-in-the-nation plastic bag ban and for insurgent issuing of same-sex marriage licenses. But all too often the Bay Area’s leftist fury only creates an ideologically isolated enclave of rich liberals, where soft drinks are banned from city buildings, animals are classified as independent entities not “owned” by anyone and an ordinance guarantees sunshine for all. This kind of sanctimonious attitude was on display last week when President Barack Obama was confronted by a band of petulant progressives asking not what they could do for their country but what their country could do for them.
