Another White House Challenge with No Good Options

Hosted by

Barack Obama's hand-picked commander of troops in Afghanistan has apologized for trashing the President in Rolling Stone magazine. Should the Commander in Chief fire General Stanley McChrystal for disrespect and insubordination or keep him on board as too important to let go? We hear about McChrystal's insubordination and his possible future. Also, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are now fully owned and operated by the federal government, at a possible cost of $389 billion. Can US taxpayers afford to continue subsidizing home ownership, a federal policy since 1938?
