Golf invitation or not, Obama’s foes poised to be teed off

This month a few vocal Republicans stood near a Confederate flag at a White House protest. Rather than contemplate what it means that opponents of this first African-American president were content to be seen with this symbol of slavery and oppression, the Globe would have us believe that, if only Barack Obama had played more golf with them, his foes’ opposition would have abated (“Obama’s vision of unity led only to wider gap,” Page A1, Oct. 14).

One cause of what you call the “broken city” is broken media, of which this article stands as a shining example.
