  •  Lucy and Charlie Brown. (12+ / 0-)

    In one sense, the theatrical performances that comprise these repeat deja vu all over again moments of "crisis", "fiscal cliff" what have you, seemingly suggest that the Republicans are in the position of Lucy and Obama in the position of Charlie Brown.

    However, if you look closely and understand that no one individual is or could be that stupid, you soon realize that Obama is Lucy and the Democratic base/progressives/elderly/working families are Charlie Brown.

    Collectively, we ARE that stupid.  Now the question is, collectively, how do we stop this cycle from continuing to repeat itself and screwing us and our kids?

    Send your old shoes to the new George W. Bush library.
