  •  The Lieberman fiasco? (0+ / 0-)

    That was some first-rate dithering by experienced professionals.

    •  The gen. populace doesn't care about Lieberman. (3+ / 0-)

      The only ones who care about that are folks like us and cable news junkies.

      I don't think that's a good example of "dithering" and "nothing getting done."

      •  Well, they may not care about that (0+ / 0-)

        but they damn sure will care about the lousy policy and the subversion of Obama that will come from Lieberman now, even if they don't know that that's where it's coming from.

          If he continues that with oversight, rather than instigating trouble, we'll be fine. If he does become a thorn in Obama's side and obstructive, I'll agree it's a big deal to the populace.

          But perhaps the Obama administration knows what they're doing? Personally, I'll assume so until proven wrong.

          •  Yeah, but I'm not talking about the Obama (0+ / 0-)

            administration. I'm talking about the Democrats in Congress.

            •  ??? (0+ / 0-)

              You brought up Lieberman in response to DemFromCT saying, "Are you even capable of dithering when the job doesn't start till Jan 20, 2009?"

              So, that to me indicated you were talking about Obama (or someone else who had not yet been sworn in). Those already in Congress already started their jobs...

              Sorry if it was a mix-up.

              •  Exactly. (1+ / 0-)

                DemfromCT was referring to Obama "dithering"; RM brought up Lieberman because he was never talking about Obama, but about Congress, which, as you point out, already started their jobs.
