    There is nothing wrong with abstracting the actions of government for consumption.  Of course this should be done responsibly, but the average person has other things to do.

    We elect politicians to do their jobs, while we do ours.  It isn't our responsibility to sift through their excuses or to show them deference.

    If things get unfair for them, remember it is a hell of a lot rougher for the rest of us.

      It's about us trying to make sure we know what's going on, and aren't being jerked around by the media.  Not everyone has time to be thorough, but we all have time to admit to ourselves what it is we don't know.
