"If they bring a knife...we bring a gun"

Speaking of overheated rhetoric, does anyone remember who said, "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun"?

No, it wasn't Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck or Ann Coulter. It was Barack Obama in Philadelphia back in June 2008! That is more overheated than anything I've ever heard from any right wing radio host or Fox News Pundit or Republican politician.

Come to think of it, when it comes to vilifying political opponents--whether they be banks, or Wall Street, or Republicans--I don't remember any president in my lifetime who has issued more incendiary and overheated rhetoric than Barack Obama!

Strange, I don't recall anyone on the Left ever criticizing him for this.
