Gerson's remarks posted

The Ethics & Public Policy Center has posted its transcript of “Religion, Rhetoric, and the Presidency,” the speech White House speechwriter gave to two dozen U.S. and international journalists on Dec. 6. The text covers his remarks and then the response by National Journal White House correspondent Carl Cannon.

The lengthy question and answer period afterward is not in this transcript, at least not yet. A sample: “(A) certain number of people would have said we lost because the president talked like Billy Sunday, just as there are some people now that think he won because he talks like Billy Sunday, and I don’t think either of those are accurate.”
