    God bless America!
    I'm pretty amazed that someone who presumably pays fairly close attention to politics looked at this summit and came away with the impression that anything about it was substantive.

    Regardless of whether they're a democrat or republican, nobody who really understands politics believes that anything about today's meeting was designed for substance. Spend an hour reading politico or a policy blog and you'll understand what I mean.

    Always the optimist boom; hope and change.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Yep, there seems to be a fair amount of the former and bunches coming up of the latter!

    "Reconciliation" was supposed to have been a way of reconciling the Senate version of the budget with the House version without having to have a super majority to overcome a filibuster. The majority party, originally the Republican Party, now the Democrats, have used it to pass legislation that the minority party would have killed with a filibuster if they could have. It was used the first time to get through welfare reform that was opposed by the minority Democrats back during the Clinton Administration.

    Republicans are welcome to use that one the next time Democrats want to give credit for welfare reform to Clinton.

    Reconciliation doesn't mean a warm and fuzzy way to reconcile differences between the two parties, quite the contrary, in fact.
