Reagan & Matalin debate Obama’s National Defense Univ. speech refuting Cheneyism on terrorism. No more treating local thugs as UBL? Ron thinks there’s no ‘existential threat’ and no monolithic enemy coming after us” — so time to alter tactics against localized threats. Mary, however, argues there’s been an “existential threat against western values since 1683” and laments going back to the pre-9/11 “law enforcement model”. Then: if Obama’s supposedly like Nixon because of three “scandals,” why do his poll numbers show the teflon of Reagan?
