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.
