Proud members of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy. We strongly believe in personal freedom, responsibility, and gun rights. We also believe in the 90/10 theory. That means that 10% of the people have 90% of the talent. Unfortunately, we are not in the 10% category. However, the rest of us are still better than 90% of the politicians.

Different day, same attitudes

The ongoing budget debate has become a circus of buffoons. Zeroman says he want a compromise, but only if he gets his way, McConnell wants to abrogate his job and abandon responsibility completely, Boehner is putting forth a stern front while seeking a way to wiggle without getting caught, and the Freshman class seem to be the only ones genuinely interested in dong what their constituents sent them to Congress to do.

In a statement of administration policy, the White House Office of Management and Budget labeled the GOP bill as an “empty political statement.”

They should well be able to recognize one...

"This unfortunate veto threat should make clear that the issue is not congressional inaction, but rather the President’s unwillingness to cut spending and restrain the future growth of our government. If we are going to raise the debt limit and avoid default, the White House must be willing to demonstrate more courage than we have seen to date," Boehner said.

Courage? Mr. Boehner, you haven't exactly been a hero in this debate either. As for expecting courage from Zeroman, well, he's not called that for nothing. I know you are both more interested in the next election cycle than in the welfare of this country, but that same self-interest should be enough to awaken you to the need for swift, decisive, and extensive re-working of the budget.
