    This... this looks like a thread where reasonable discussion could emerge.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

He was new on the job, and both of them had been around forever, and knew the ropes. It was a natural way to avoid making mistakes, but as it turns out he could have chosen better. The good news for him is that Pelosi and Reid are taking the heat that he would have gotten, so maybe his decision was the right one...for him! It did cost him dearly in 2010 midterms, though, and he acknowledged that fact that by calling it a "shellacking!
    The word "compromise" still gives me the dry heaves. Yes, governing is a give and take affair, but an "encounter session" no. There were many times in the past 3 decades when people were voting for the GOP because why not vote for the real thing instead of it's insipid 2nd rate imitation ?.............The vote for the Iraq war just showed that, despite the showmanship that you feel constitutes real opposition, when it came down to action, there was only one party.........................

    It was a bit more detailed than that. A virtually unregulated derivatives market and untethered to reality loan policies has a whole lot to do with the nightmare. The reins have been artificially tight since the crash, by necessity and the regulation that should have been there all along are in place. We don't have to return to the environment that hurt us, but we can open the floddgates a little.

    He may be thinking along those lines. I'm okay with that, but the question for me is how long will those protective regulations stay in place, or how long will it take for the banks to find another way around them and screw us again.

    Was it on one of these threads the other day that someone remarked that it seemed that Republicans were more for the individual, and Democrats were more for the group? That may well be true, idiologically speaking. Perhaps that explains the different governing styles, at least in DC?

    None of the above.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Both people on the right who demonize Obama and people on the left who idolize him seem oblivious to his most obvious quality: The man is deeply, profoundly mediocre. Unremarkable in every aspect of his public persona. From his terrible economic and fiscal policies to his belated positive promise on gay rights and immigration reform, he is a repeater and follower - not any kind of leader or trailblazer.

    His oh-so-scary socialist ("liberal" in our nonsensical political jargon) ideology is merely an averaged and diluted version of the consensus that long dominated the minds of center-left Americans - for so long, as a matter of fact, that it already sounds archaic and reactionary to outsiders.

    I think ten, twenty years from now, this presidency will be viewed not as an onslaught of dark forces or a long-overdue arrival of enlightened reformers, but as a period of repeated mistakes and wasted time. With Obama himself dwindling into a footnote.
    Good evening, Cyrylek.

    Very interesting post!

    By the way, are you Welsh by background? Your previous tag line sounded like it might have been. The reason I am inquiring is because I am working on a book about life in Wales in the 12th and 13th Centuries. Just curious...

    Good evening, Polgara!

    No, a mix of Slavic, Germanic and Baltic genes - Polish being predominant. Nothing Celtic that I can trace. Which is too bad: I could have a sense of humor

    Anyone who has to speak the language surely needs a sense of humor, or they'd do themselves in! Any word that has 15 or more letters in it--separated by dashes, BTW, that basically tells you the name of the little bridge you're on....
