Watching Obama’s departing words on that TV news this evening, I was struck by his use of the phrase “common purpose”:
“Only if our politics reflects the decency of our people. Only if all of us, regardless of our party affiliation or particular interest, help restore the sense of common purpose that we so badly need right now,” he said.
Not the first time he’s used it: https://www.weeklystandard.com/obama-talks-of-common-purpose-in-resp…
And, to the incognisent, it sounds innocent enough. Don’t be fooled. This is the Common Purpose Obama was referring to:
Keep an ear out for other luminaries (hint: British royalty.) using the term “Common Purpose”.
