    is like preparing a nice warm nest in your house for a colony of termites.

    Obama should treat the idea of nominating a GOOPer to anything the same way every single piece of his program and/or legislation was treated by the Tea Party/GOP controlled House.

      GOP has cancelled the vote for "Plan B" (a.k.a. "Plan 9 From Outer Space") because Boehner can't marshal enough votes to pass it, his very own proposal.

      Paul Krugman was right--as soon as Obama shows a little concessionary spirit, the GOP goes immmediately on the attack again and demands more.

      So off the cliff we go!
