    "Why do I feel like somebody is being given the run around? Oh yeah, it's because that's what they do."

    Yes, and they do it exceedingly well.

    I truly cannot see why everyone can't put the welfare of the country at the head of the line and just do what is right.  But the Republicans -- and Obama; he's just as guilty -- are focused on being the ones who save the day.  They all are so possessed by posturing that they can't seem to do anything else but posture.

    I keep picturing in my mind how LBJ -- both as Majority Leader and as President -- would have handled this whole fiscal situation.  I can't help but think that it would all be history by now.

      It's not merely posturing -- it's posturing to preserve the status quo.  You know, the one wherein they and their corporate cronies make a lot of money and wield a lot of power at the expense of everybody else.

      Folks have been saying for a few years around here that the GOP isn't conservative, it's extremely radical.  And they provide more proof of that every day.

      I want a leader who shoots for the moon. The last time we had one, we got to the moon.
