06/19/07 noon David Frum


We just wrapped up our hour with David Frum, conservative political commentator, author, and former speechwriter for our current president.  I was taking the calls and emails, and I have to say, we had some irate listeners.  If you heard Jerry from Pikesville’s call, you know what I’m talking about.

Along with some emotions, some interesting ideas came through.  Are we wrapped up in a liberal/conservative political divide to the detriment of our political discourse?  Are both sides doing anything more than boring each other to tears by repeating the same arguments/defenses over and over?  Is there any meaningful dialogue between the two sides amidst all the rhetoric?  How did we get to the point of viewing our political options as “two opposing sides?”

www.davidfrum.com is full of David’s writing, so you can take a look at his ideas and judge them for yourself.
