  •  With Obama it's all pretty fill-in-the-blank (0+ / 0-)
    So, uh, why are the changes he proposes just tinkering around the edges, not addressing the basic problem of _____? Part of the answer is clear, of course: Obama can't make the states ____, and he can't get Congress to do it, either. But why not at least focus on the real issue?
