Press Coverage: Washington Times SCOTUS Commentary, Obama’s Administrative Appointments
The Washington TimesÂ posted an article yesterday on the pending Supreme Court decision forÂ Donofrio v. Wells. It’s a short read and while it’s biased very positively, remember that the Supremes could decide either way on this and other cases.
theobamafile.com is reporting this morning on two of Obama’s administrative appointments: Mark Rudd and Jeff Jones. The blogger NewZeal provides some history behind these two guys of which everyone should be aware. The posting goes on to talk about how Obama is doing an excellent job of promulgating the perspective of governing from the center:
“Obama is a very strategic thinker.Â He knew precisely what it would take to get elected and didn’t blow it…Â But he also knew that what he said had to basically play to the center to not be run over by the press, the Republicans, scare centrist and cross-over voters away…Â What he’s doing now is moving on the most popular issues — the environment, health care, and the economy.Â He’ll be progressive on the environment because that has broad popular support; health care will be extended to children, then made universal, but the medical, pharmaceutical, and insurance corporations will stay in place…Â The economic agenda will stress stimulation from the bottom sometimes and handouts to the top at other times.Â It will be pragmatic…Â On foreign policy and the wars and the use of the military there will be no change at all.Â That’s what keeping Gates at the Pentagon and Clinton at State and not prosecuting the torturers is saying.Â And never, never threaten the military budget.Â That will unite a huge majority of congress against him.”
