The blame game

Re: “Forget blame game,” Michael Coren, Sun, Jan. 15, 2011.

Eric Fuller, who was struck by a bullet in the gunfire in Tucson that  killed or injured 20, insists conservative figureheads such as Sarah  Palin, Glenn Beck and Sharron Angle were to blame for the violence. Fuller, a onetime campaign worker for the most prominent shooting  victim, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, has, like Giffords’s father, also  politicized the tragedy. As the 150th anniversary of the outbreak of  the American Civil War draws near, the U.S. is once again becoming a dangerously polarized nation. Even as its once mighty economic engine is sputtering.
