Defining Problem in American Politics:

James Carville, speaking on CNN's 'State of the Union,' about Dem strategy against Republicans: 'Put a bill out there, make them filibuster it, make them be what they are, the party of no. ... Let them kill it. Let them kill it with the interest group money, then run against them. That's what we ought to do.'

It is precisely because of this kind of advice from full-time professional political hacks that pols aren't thinking about the next generation. Hell, they're not even thinking about the next decade. All they can think about is the next election.

Just remember that when we're all wondering what happened to this once great country. Where have all the Statesmen gone?

Now, I have seen it all... In 140 characters or less.

On road + just rec'd email entitled ''Is Obama the Antichrist?''

I didn't vote for the guy, but for the love of Ohio, the antichrist?


I am old enough to remember a time when you could agree to disagree on policy without personalities.


B/t polar opposite Left/Right lays vast ''silent majority'' of hard working America. U know, ones who don't get bail out, or tax breaks, or call POTUS the antichrist.
