    I look at it this way:  Obama was set up by Bush.  As he will contribute to setting up the next president.

    It wasn't possible for Bush to do the things that are happening now - and so saying one is 'worse' than the other is a false comparison.  That is not to say that Bush wouldn't have done what is happening now.  He surely would have.

    But it is to say that Obama cannot do what the next president will do - but the next one will do those things because of Bush and Obama.

    Maybe we'd be smarter to head 'em off at the pass.  More than anything on earth, we need the House.  And frankly, my hopes for a Dem president in 2016 are not high.

    Actually, thinking about it all, this is one of those days where my hopes are not high in general.  I think I'll go have a beer or two.

    It ain't called paranoia - when they're really out to get you. 6 points.
