    The day I become a single-issue voter is the day I take several steps away from politics.  

    I will work, contribute and vote.  I would work for Obama again if he was allowed a third term.  I live in DC so I have no Senator to rise up against for this "betrayal" and my house member can't vote anyway.

    I view politics as a collaborative process of opposing ideals in an attempt to govern a nation of MILLIONS.  It is not some kind of "us" against "them" proxy blood sport where we send in "our guys" and they BETTER be ready to fucking claw out the eyes and rip out the throats of "their guys" and if they aren't then they are DEAD TO ME.   ....that is to confuse government with cock-fighting, maturity for ideology and ourselves for the rabid loons of Freeperville.

    I'm curious to see where this latest round of budget negotiations will take us but I am much happier seeing any kind of conversation happening rather then the monthly ONOEZ! panic fests involving cliffs, shutdowns, sequesters and defaults.

    My guess is this gets rejected on both sides by the GOP for wanting to include revenue and by the Dems for including CCPI.  Which will be interesting since the current Ryan-House plan and Murray-Senate plan are veritably mutually exclusive of each other so that "conference" should be quite a damned shit show.  

    I will take a pass on lobbing "judas" accusations and rallying up purity primary challengers for now and just wait to see where we end up.

      comment.  Boehner rejected it today but said Obama should do chained cpi with no revenue increase.  In other words it 's DOA.  We wil see what happens.
