    "Statement X is BS" or "Statement X is CT" or "Statement X is unproven"

    and, 6-12 months later "evidence is now coming out that suggests that Statement X is true in part or in toto" continues.

    Also, remember that on the rare occasions that lots of people oppose something and bring pressure on the Administration, and the Administration changes course, it was because they always meant to do that. Public pressure doesn't achieve anything; Obama was always already going to do it, whatever "it" is, and thus, rather than affirming the value of public engagement with the government, including protest and objection, it just shows how stupid his critics were for ever getting worked up about anything.

    The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?
