A uniter once again

The President was at his best tonight. Hugh Hewitt’s take is on the money. And speaking of money, it’s going to be pouring into the Gulf region to the tune of at least $200 billion, I imagine.
You can call it FDR/LBJ liberalism, big government conservatism, or compassionate conservatism. I call it American-style pragmatism (a more restrained style of pragmatism might dictate that we simply forego rebuilding New Orleans) and, as such, it will unite most of the country. Indeed, Lorie Byrd at PoliPundit notes that, to the apparent chagrin of ABC News, it seems to have united flood victims who watched the speech at the Astrodome.
