Enough is enough!

Let me preface this with the fact that I am no fan of Obama.  But after I saw this article, even I have to come to his defense.  In a nutshell, our president is coming under fire for stopping to eat at a Chinese restaurant in San Fransisco that has shark fin soup on its menu.  It's illegal to import any more, but restaurants still have about a year left to sell off their current stock.  It's a law helped to pass.

What gets me is how quickly he was criticized.  Really, why do we consistently need someone to demonize, someone to attack?  Why do we always need an enemy?  I think it's because if we can find someone to blame, someone to draw attention away from our own shortfalls, then it can help feel better about ourselves.  Thoughts anyone?  Am I way off?  Am I missing something?  Why else do we have this need to look for fault in others?
