  •  Some make choice once attaining office, others (10+ / 0-)

    make it on their way to office.  In some ways, it doesn't matter when the choice is made.   Either way, it has already been made by far too many Dems on both ends of PA Ave.

    U3/U6 have been at intolerable levels for years, a pointless war in Afghanistan drags on, and trillions have been thrown at Wall Street in a vain effort to prop up a financial house of cards.  The dominant "bipartisan" consensus, however, holds that cutting entitlemens to reduce the deficit is the critical issue.  Never mind that entitlements don't add to deficit, and never mind that the deficit wasn't nearly as big a deal when W/Cheney were cutting taxes for wealthy and starting wars.

    Our party, as often as not, chooses to stumble down the path upon which the GOP proudly marches.  We have way too many honest pols who, once bought by FIRE, have stayed bought.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
