    He no longer owes anyone anything and is smart enough to know that his legacy will be judged much more on the extent to which he fulfilled his second inaugural rhetoric than on that whole Grand Bargain horseshit. So what's the point? He can't possibly believe that austerity makes economic sense.

    He befuddles me.

      Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
