Yeh, if President Obama would just get "creative" and "think outside the box," I'm sure Louie Golmert and Michelle Bachmann will come around, along with the other Teabag fucks in the House.

David Brooks gets paid an assload of money for this fairy tale shit.

It's the utter lack of institutional memory that really frustrates me. Obama -- and Clinton -- pretty much implemented the Repug agenda. Health care reform, welfare "reform," and financial deregulation are more or less straight conservative blue print...at least until conservatives went full metal bugfuck insane wingnut.

Jimmy Carter wasn't all that liberal either. Didn't he deregulate the trucking industry, and, with Ted Kennedy, the airlines? Carter also increased military spending for three of the four years of his administration, and I think the single year he didn't was both due to the draw down from Vietnam AND the fact that they were governing under the Ford budget proposals.

You'd think a free press that took itself seriously would point that out...but instead they get all in a huff when the President won't let them tag along on a golf weekend...when they're not engaged in serious discussions about how often and how effectively he shoots skeet.

Sigh.

"You want a criminal lawyer."

Sometimes I wonder if there's any other kind....

"You'd think a free press that took itself seriously would point that out."

Oh, the press takes itself seriously enough. It's its readership that it does not take seriously -- you know, the readership that prefers tax hikes on the wealthy to more spending cuts.
