Deals and Drips
It’s been a battle to get on the computer for the last two days. I had to change my password. It seems we have to change them all the time. So I changed the password but it seems none of the systems got the message. I tried to log on again…no dice.
So after a frustrating and less than productive 24 hours…I’m back.
If the President continues this kind of course, I think he might confound the experts and get elected for a second term.
The President compromised, and so did Republicans. I think most Americans would says they agree with that concept. There will be people who say the President caved…that he got beat. We always like to have a winner and loser. I disagree.
Do you think most Americans are going to care that EVERYONE’S tax rate stays they same? No. They care that THEIR tax rate stays the same. So in this deal…The President’s compromise makes a lot of people happy.
The reaction from Congress was a study in what’s been wrong with the leadership for the last four years. They’re mad. They want a fight. I don’t care about your fight…I care about my tax rate.
If the President wants to, I think he can regain control of his own party here. He’ll have to share the spotlight with Republicans but he can also get compromise out of Republicans and might even get something done. What are Dems going to do? Complain? They’ll look like idiots.
Ken Root makes one more point. A lot of these Democrats aren’t going to be around for the next Congress, so you might see a few of them throw a grenade or two into this compromise so it doesn’t happen. That’ll make Democrats popular.
I went to put make-up on today. You’ve heard the exercise we have to go through to get ready for the show. One of the steps is shaking the bottle of make-up. I swear the top was screwed on…It’s a new bottle. Before I knew what was happening…there was make-up everywhere including my pants.
What a drip.
I hope you have a good day!
