Gergen: ‘An Audacious Speech’
Though analysis of tonight’s speech has been interrupted or cut short on many networks due to breaking news of the police confrontation with Christopher Dorner in Big Bear, Calif., CNN political analyst David Gergen did have time to offer his thoughts. “I thought it was an audacious speech,” Gergen said.
While Bill Clinton famously declared an end to the era of big government, President Obama is moving the country in a different direction. According to Gergen, “He has embraced liberalism, old-fashioned liberalism, in a way we haven’t seen for a long time.”
