100% Of The Time
While trying to catch up on hurricane coverage this morning, I happened upon the President’s speech to the VFW convention being held in Kansas City, MO. As the President pointed out the other politicians and dignitaries in the crowd, he didn’t gloss over the fact there were some Congressmen and Senators in the audience who are some of his biggest opposers.I’m paraphrasing here, but as he identified one of his opposers from the platform, he said, “It’s not any secret that the Congressman and I don’t agree 100% of the time. That’s okay. When I was the Republican governor of Texas, I had a Lieutenant Governor under me who was a Democrat. I said, ‘We don’t have to agree 100% of the time.” He leaned back and said, ‘If we agreed 100% of the time, one of us wouldn’t need his job!'”
Love him or hate him, this was a nice little piece of political humor and world philosophy. We don’t have to agree all the time-and we shouldn’t, either.
