  •  that's the way they do the math (3+ / 0-)

    kinda stinks.

    Another time when I made a similar point (I am pretty repetitive, heh), another poster pointed out the apocryphal FDR quote, "that's sounds like a great idea, now make me do it." As if he only did anything in response to political pressure.

    But I missed the obvious comeback. FDR did not do WWII in response to political pressure. That was a must-do, and he sold it to the country (delicately) in the face of a lot of isolationism.

    Anyway, I wait for the big guys to end their silence.
