  • Liveblogging Obama's Detainee Speech: Pushed from Left and Right

    It is easy to take the middle road when you are being pushed so hard by the right and the left on combating terrorism. This is a speech the president has to make because no one is happy with his policies. The president just dodged a bullet at Notre Dame, but this issue is different platitudes might not cut it. We’ll see how he does.

    What would be good to hear in the speech is that a lot what we have done the last seven years to protect the nation was right and necessary-and we should build on that-rather than pillory the past in search of a few more percentage points of popularity. We’ll see.
