Mosque madness and midterms
On “This Week” with Christiane Amanpour, Chrystia says President Obama‚Äôs speech in support of the Cordoba House mosque that would occupy a building two blocks from Ground Zero in downtown Manhattan displays leadership and conviction.
Later on “This Week” during a roundtable discussion on mid-term elections, Chrystia says the real question is, can an American political party or political movement come up with a powerful economic plan?
Chrystia asks, doesn’t this all come down to the economy? She picks up on what former governor of New Jersey Jon Corzine said earlier about this recession. It is not only following a financial crisis, but also is the final act of America’s structural adjustment to globalization and the technology revolution.
