This is not going to be a formal post, but I think all of you should note three things that have happened in the last 24 hours:
1. President Obama, while being interviewed by Fox News, stated that too much government debt could fuel a double dip recession;
2. President Obama, in the same interview, stated that closing Gitmo is a lot harder than he thought and that it would remain open longer than he expected; and,
3. Eric Holder, in a Congressional hearing this morning started using the word “War” when describing the current state with Terrorists. He also guaranteed convictions of the Muslim Extremists. This is actually odd. I don’t know any prosecutor at any level that would guarantee convictions.
Am I missing things here, or are these major flip/flops?
Or, maybe something deeper is happening here? Maybe Obama is beginning to realize that the Republicans are correct on certain positions? Now, if he could actually admit it, there would be a chance at bipartisanship.
Maybe, he can actually admit it on “Health Care”, “Cap and Trade”, and “Iran”, and “North Korea,” soon too.
Or, am I dreaming?
