    A well placed comma in a memo, review, assessment, court finding, etc. can injure, pacify, cripple, defeat, or self-destruct. Sure, it's just a comma. Well, no, not so. And smart people know that a comma is never just a comma.

    We are not stupid. Well, not many of us. Surely not all of us.

    A schedule that requires the presence of Congress and the President is one that screams for coordination. It just is discussed in advance of making public.

    We know there was an indelicate scheduling conflict between arch enemies.

    Was it due to malevolent intentions, incompetency, a strategy yet to unfold, or arrogance?  Like a play with a winding technical plot in which mystery and intrigue slowly play out, will the end be a shocking surprise, or an ironic anti-climax? This is politics, nothing is a sure thing and everything counts.

    Eliminate the Bush tax cuts Eliminate Afghan and Iraq wars Do these things first before considering any cuts
