When do we get to the heart of the matter? I have no misgivings about the Bush administration's reaction to terror real and imagined leading us in the direction of govt. overreach regarding airport security. However what is less important is the past president who has no legal standing at this time and the current one who has stood silent on this aggregious behavior. It is time for Pres. Obama to put down the golf clubs and pick up a fountain pen and sign an executive order ceasing this nonsense. When I hear Thom feign outrage out of one side of his mouth yet provide political cover for Obama out the other by failing to rally an outcry from all Americans to the whitehouse and demand immediate action . After all Bush's position on anything now is moot ,but Obama's is paramount. Thom shouldn't be waiting for the all clear signal from liberal policymakers to mention the current president's name in relation to this issue. He should make the obvious comparison that Obama's silence and inaction is an endorsement of this path that began with Bush and increases under Obama. SPEAK UP THOM! Do you care or not?

Trump - Dumb Luck or A Master Manipulator?

Thom plus logo Either it's an act of a master manipulator, or he has the best luck there is. Donald Trump wanted the Fed to lower interest rates, knowing that that would provide a solid and multi-year boost to the economy. But when Trump came into office, rates were already low and the Fed was not inclined to help.
