Going to be an intense week. With POTUS weighing in on the Mosque my appearance on strategy room Monday @ 3pm with Monica Crowley should be dominated by the topic. You can watch it live here. http://live.foxnews.com/strategy-room
Usually the last 2 weeks of August are slow news weeks but don’t count on that this year. What do you think the story of the week will be?
I know the GOP wants to blame Obama for everything but lets be clear. George W. Bush demanded, pushed for and signed TARP, the Troubled Assets Relief Program. This is the program that bailed out the banks and insurance giant AIG. Today we learned that France and Germany benefited greatly from the AIG bailout and conservatives rushed to point fingers at the President. Let’s be clear which president the fingers should be pointed at.
So here is the quote I was trying to paraphrase at the end of my Hannity appearance last night. I had a few people ask about it so I thought it would make a good post.
“People talk about the middle of the road as though it were unacceptable. Actually, all human problems, excepting morals, come into the gray areas. Things are not all black and white. There have to be compromises. The middle of the road is all of the usable surface. The extremes, right and left, are in the gutters.” -Dwight D. Eisenhower
His words are still very true today. Having to govern means finding the center. Obama is being called out by the left as being too conservative and conservatives have accused the President of being a socialist radical. He clearly is not. This President has compromised as all presidents have and will in the future. All the extreme talk on both sides ignores history.
