    in particular.  The President said a lot of things during this debate that later turned out to be "inoperative."

    If he really wanted a clean bill, he had a goid chance for it once the Republicans had collapsed.  As he said explicitly and repeatedly, he wanted a deal.

    In my avatar, the blue bars show how many want Reps who COMPROMISE; the aqua bars show who wants Reps who STAND FAST no matter what. (Left=Overall; Center=Democrats; Right=Republicans.) And there's the problem!

      into account the hijackers' demands and threats. After all, the hijackers are not some foreign, rogue entity. They were elected by majorities of the American people for crying out loud.

      It is a complete waste of time to ponder what President Obama really wanted. Too much work to be done. We now have a clear view of where to focus our energies. Time is wasting...

      We're gonna rise from these ashes like a bird aflame...
