Did you see the Congressional schedule for the last week. I believe that the baseball issue concern is a bit of hyperbola. Maybe Boehner could have walked out on that one if he was so interested in getting other things done.
they could have taken-up all kinds of interesting and important issues. Like oh ... Social Security funding for example. Or if they must stay with the president's agenda, the FISA bill. But instead they did the Clements thingie and never took up the issue that is the most important attempt at balance between security and liberty.
My own preference is to err on the liberty side, in contrast to the president and probably closer to the Democrats. But maybe not. Unless they debate the G-D'd thing I don't know where the Congress stands -- except with their collective head stuck way-up their collective ass.
My contempt for Congress is looking for a path to reach a new low. I think the path is opened-up by their actions. And lack of them.
The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
