McCain: 'We all bear some responsibility'

Sen. John McCain of Arizona said in an op/ed piece for Sunday's Washington Post that he "thanks and commends" President Obama for his speech in Tucson on Wednesday night.

"He movingly mourned and honored the victims of Saturday's senseless atrocity outside Tucson, comforted and inspired the country, and encouraged those of us who have the privilege of serving America," McCain wrote.

He added that "there are too many occasions when we lack that empathy and mutual respect on all sides of our politics, and in the media. But it is not beyond us to do better; to behave more modestly and courteously and respectfully toward one another; to make progress toward the ideal that beckons all humanity: to treat one another as we would wish to be treated."

"We are Americans and fellow human beings, and that shared distinction is so much more important than the disputes that invigorate our noisy, rough-and-tumble political culture. That is what I heard the president say on Wednesday evening."
