Dear Thom,

I am a regular listener of your radio show. This morning President Obama had a press conference during your show. Your comment later was that he had offered to compromise with the republicans and you also went on to say that like Harry Reid he lacks testosterone.

I felt that this was a misrepresentation of what had transpired in the press conference. I don't know if you had a chance to listen to his Q & A with the press. I listened to all of it. In all of his dialogue, he never uttered the word compromise. He shared that he had said to the leaders of the Ret. party that he was willing to work with them. He commented several times that he was willing to see if they had any new ideas re. the problems facing the country e.g. creating jobs or dealing with energy or health care etc. His position on all these issues was that that he was not willing to rehash the measures passed in the last two years but he was willing to consider any new ideas or improvements to what has been done. His demeanor was of a person trying to be graceful and keep an open door for dialogue with them and not of some unconditional surrender.

I wanted to bring this to your attention.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
