No apologies needed, PM. It's a damned shame to see this come back again and again even after the truth has been laid bare.

It seems that no matter what we do or say, or show, that clearly displays the insanity and dangerous nature of the modern Republican Party, you can count on two things: First, the mainstream media complaining about "politics as usual" and forgetting the previous administration (unless it's Bill Clinton) and second, some liberals saying the "It doesn't matter, they're all the same" doggerel.

Even though it has been clearly established that President Obama was handed a s**t sandwich by President Bush, Obama has accomplished much in the first two years of his presidency. And yet, the moaners and groaners continue on, complaining about nothing being done and oh, how come he didn't do this or that?

Of course, it's always easier to gripe when you are on the outside. I wonder how Greenwald, Swanson, Lindorf, Baker, Reich, and all the others who are currently taking the President to task--I wonder what they would do if they were in Obama's position and facing the same troubles he has faced. Maybe they would sober up fast and realize that the decisions he's made so far are the only ones that are practical and make sense under the circumstances facing the nation.

It is exhausting, this recurrent buffoonery, but...we have to keep moving along. The only other choice is apathy.

I too am exhausted by American politics. This is like a failed marriage. You get to the point when there is no new rational discussion to have.

Them; The budget deficit is bad.

Me: You're right. Let's do something, like raising taxes.

Them: No, don't raise taxes you asshole.

Me: OK, let's cut expenses.

Them: Great!!!

Me: What do do you want to cut?

Them: I don't know.

Me Social Security?

Them: No!!!

Me: Military?

Them: No!!!

Me: Medicare?

Them: No!!!!!

Me: Medicaid? Federal highways? Airports? FBI? Homeland Security?

Them: No, no, no, no, NO!!!!!

Me: OK, what do you want to do?

Them: Cut the deficit.

Me: Just shoot me and call it a mercy killing.
