We’ll see Livius. There are times when I’d like to be found wrong. Perhaps for the nation’s sake this will be one of them. Not holding out much hope here.
Obama will be more than willing to take some heat, as long as he gets what he wants. I’ll bet he’s happy to have the focus moved over to him. What’s he care? He’s got his second four years and that’s all that matters right now.
The budget deals aren’t even phased by this in the slightest.
That's true. And he knows that nothing ever sticks to him anyway.
Still, I would love to see somebody really corner him and ask him some hard questions, even if he gets off in the long run (as Bill Clinton did). He's run through so many minions, both low-level ones and those all the way up the line, that there's really nobody else that McCain et al. can look at for this...
The ones who probably really made the decisions are actually his unelected, unappointed "advisors," so this might shine a little light on them, too. Jarrett and Axelrod and the gang need to scatter like the roaches they are.
