    Over and over again, he demonstrates the complete intractability of the republicans: nothing will move them from protecting the rich. Deficit reduction is a sham.

    That said, I, personally could do without the president stepping on his own message in Miami today: infrastructure program.

    •  And that intractability is a good thing (5+ / 0-)

      If that idiot keeps offering up the store, one of these days they're going to take him up on it.

      There is no sane reason to keep offering up the safety net even if you have a promise signed in blood that they won't take him up on it.  It's idiocy writ large, and if the High Command keeps pushing for it, it will hurt them in the elections.

      Enough with the Lesser and Worse Democrats.

      You may think that. I couldn't possibly comment.-- Francis Urqhart

      SocSec  and Medicare cuts are the whack job wackiest of the Repubs.

      At some point he just may given enought that they'll take it -- and blame it forever on the DEMOCRATS.

      Forever. And they'll be right.
