Hope, Change and...

...don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings...

Despite pressure from activists and lawmakers, President Obama on Saturday again refused to declare the 1915 mass killings of Armenians a genocide.

He referred to it as a "devastating chapter," and said that "we must keep its memory alive in honor of those who were murdered so that we do not repeat the grave mistakes of the past."

Yet for the second year in a row, Obama avoided describing the episode as a genocide.
Way to audible, McDreamy... so much for the moral high ground.
