  •  I think that anything which focuses solely on (0+ / 0-)

    job creation (including the plan that the President will be unveiling in early September) is a step in the right direction, and will force the GOP (both the Congress and the candidates) to answer with their own proposals.  Of course, they'll talk about "taxes on job creators ccausing uncertainty and killing jobs, blah, blah, blah," but I don't think that rhetoric is going to work any more.  People are starting to speak out in town halls, and want REAL jobs proposals and want them NOW.  If the GOP plan is to hold out and freeze all activity until Obama loses, I think they'll be the ones to lose.

    Or at least I hope so.

    While I wouldn't normally like the idea of another Super Congress, it's clear that then Regular Congress is not up to the job.  

    Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it. --Mark Twain
