  •  He didn't need any commission to begin with. (5+ / 0-)

    It was part of his love affair with bipartisanship.

        the good ideas?

        If not...why are they half of the commission?

        •  Hard to have a bipartisian commission... (0+ / 0-)

          That's all one side....

          Actually I think it's a great thing that Obama has an advisory commission that includes 44% Republicans.

          That means that he will get a wide range of opinions, not just a choir shouting "Amen".  

          And the fact that 56% of the commission is made up of Democrats and it will take only 4 dissenting voices to kill any batshit crazy stuff means that no truly screwy ideas are likely to make it to Obama's desk....

          •  So, it's irrelevant that the people voted (1+ / 0-)

            in six out of ten Democrats.

            Republicans still "deserve" half the say.

            Gotcha.

            Which Party do you claim to support, again?

            •  This post makes no sense... (0+ / 0-)

              What do you not understand about 44%/56% and 'four to kill'?

              And that's twice you've accused me of supporting Republicans.
