    Why is President Obama telling people what to do about the fiscal cliff?

    Need better trolling.

    •  I didn't hear Obama (0+ / 0-)

      telling either Boehner nor Pelosi how to choose leadership positions.  And gimme a break with the trolling comment.

      Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.

        When you act shocked that the leader of a political party might urge members of his political party in an insitutional body, say, a Senate. to vote a certain way, or orgnaize a certain way, that is pur trolling.

        Or ignorance.

        Or both.

        Sorry, I'm not giving you a pass on this one.

          Your comment is a non sequitur.  Cuomo is already under criticism -- and rightfully so -- for his unDemocratic behavior.  The latest criticism with respect to an all-white leadership in the legislature just seems to be an arbitrary piling onto Cuomo, blaming him for something he does not directly control.  Should he have spoken up and objected to the appearance of an all-white legislative leadership?  Maybe so -- and I said as much.  The only thing shocking is that you deemed this fairly innocuous opinion as "trolling."
