I don’t know this man, but I suspect he is not being characterized fairly. He is most likely a moderate problem solver, and in today’s political climate, that is a good thing.
You take issue with him, because you are comforted by extreme positions. Well extremism is tearing this country a part.
There are radicals on both sides of the spectrum, and both have the right to be heard under certain conditions. I bet this guy is simply trying to set up the conditions- and that’s his job. Moderates need to be given more respect than this.
