Let me finish tonight with this.
It’s hard to find political sanity these days, some balanced view of things that also points to what is best in this country, what is not good, and what we can do to make things better in the future.
On this program, Hardball, I’ve tried to do that:
I’ve tried to support American’s interests in the world, especially our own security – while realizing the limits on what any good government can do when it comes to our privacy and civil liberties.
I’ve tried to support a woman’s constitutional rights but also express my belief that the best, most successful way to reduce the number of abortions in this country – which is always a matter of true moral contention — is to reduce the number of unplanned pregnancies and to put the focus there on the responsibilities of those who are, in so many cases, the people most responsible for unplanned pregnancies, for unprotected sex – men!
I believe the pro-life people should spend more time acting on the take-off and not just the landing, as much time thinking about the men responsible as they do putting the heat on the women “left” responsible.
I’ve tried to be balanced in this matter of stop-and-frisk, respecting the danger of good police work and our desire – especially those who live in tough neighborhoods – to have police doing their job, which includes respecting the people they take the responsibility to protect.
We do it a little different here on Hardball and that’s why I want you out there watching when we go exclusively next week to 7 o’clock eastern.
This is important stuff. It’s not easy. I need you with me.
