    important which is the real point of dredging through all this now.  The Republicans have a series of crises scheduled on the calendar. They think they can force the Democrats to the table with entititement, as Boehner put it, in an interview he gave to the Wall Street Journal in January.  It's an ongoing offensive.

    There is no existence without doubt.

      venom and aggression than I've seen since the 1990s.  And yet the President seems determined to frame their ongoing siege in terms of a negotiation.  

      This is not a situation of equal bargainers.  This is a war waged by one party representing not the American people, but a constellation of financial and corporate interests; against the American people and against members of the opposing party, who nominally at least claim to represent the interests of the American people.  

      Nominal won't cut it.  We need for the Democrats, the President, to start fighting back.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10
