    Of course, for the honest, that was better than a year ago.

    That reference is to a political talk show host. Despite the difficult negotiating process, I do not yet believe that any single participant is going to be completely unyielding in the end. I expect a smaller deal than the reported "grand bargain" that had been under consideration that more than likely will put off major entitlement program reforms and tax policy changes. Ultimately, to return the nation to a fiscally sustainable path, those issues will need to be addressed. Unfortunately, given the limited time available before the debt ceiling needs to be hiked, those issues cannot reasonably be tackled at present.

    It isn't an escape or an excuse, it is factually what happened.

    Blindly hate the man if you wish, it doesn't mean it is rational.

    You cannot expect such far reaching damage done over the course of 8 years to be repaired in less than half that time.

    It's a lot hard to fix that it was to break.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Actually, no, it is in reference to those that argue that the GOP is unwilling to compromise, while the Dems are.
    The Dems have their heels dug on two issues that they will not let go.

    I think it would be more accurate to say we blame a man WHO CAMPAIGNED to be in this position. He knew the stakes, he knew the situation yet continued to run for the office. Let us not forget his "I'm suspending my campaign to go back to DC and meet with President Bush on the economic crisis. He did not go into this blind.
