The president chose a middle road; some have cleverly dubbed it the “goldilocks Strategy.”
This year, the theme was "Just Right," inspired loosely on the story of goldilocks.
This sort of calculation—not too hot, not too cold—is better left to goldilocks.
name for a person with bright yellow hair, 1540s, from adj. form of gold + lock in the hair sense. The story of the Three Bears first was printed in Robert Southey's miscellany "The Doctor" (1837), but the central figure there was a bad-tempered old woman. Southey did not claim to have invented the story, and older versions have been traced, either involving an old woman or a "silver-haired" girl (though in at least one version it is a fox who enters the house). The identification of the girl as Goldilocks is attested only from c.1875.
[second sense fr the folk tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears]
