Finally, I was able to catch up with Bill Scher from Liberal Oasis and Campaign for America’s Future for this podcast. (Please read Bill’s must-read post on how to get jobs back on the table.)Bill is one of the fabulous progressives. We discuss the fact that President Barack Obama appears to be holding the winning hand with debt ceiling negotiations coming up. We talk about Benghazi. Every time the Republicans try to make a big deal out of Benghazi, it seems to blow up in their faces. Such was the case with Mitt Romney and, most recently, Charles Krauthammer, who stated that Hillary Clinton had a case of Benghazi allergy, which is why she didn’t testify in front of Congress. Bill correctly points out that Benghazi is not a scandal. Instead, it shows the difficulty in balancing what an Embassy is supposed to do – security versus being with the people. One of the things that seems to be overlooked is that President Barack Obama is now promoting a foreign-policy that is fostering democracy in many countries that once were dictatorships. (I wonder why Fox News isn’t talking about this.) Listen to this podcast. It is extremely entertaining.
I would like to thank Bill Scher for being on the show and I’d also like to thank my co-host Vonciel for tolerating my Bogarting the microphone.
