It's more like a Time Share, actually.

Do I need to get that list of all the things that you were suppose to "get back with me" on to call me out when I was wrong?

I believe the "Reagan never had a tax increase" was at the top of the list.

Back in April of 2007, Pelosi accused then-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales of lying and demanded his RESIGNATION.

"... Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has lost the trust of the American people. The nation cannot have a chief law enforcement officer whose candor and judgment are in serious question. The president should restore credibility to the office of the attorney general. Alberto Gonzales must resign."

There is no such thing as a clean sheet of paper. We have debt that lingers, we have TARP that continues, we have Iraq that bridges, we have an economy in shambles that has to be fixed. As we move forward we have to look at every step at where we have been so we know what to do and what not to do.

We can look at mistakes that this Administration has TODAY and see, as we look at root cause what caused them and often we see links to the past Administration as we continue down a path that winds up a new direction as well as unwinds an old one.

There is no clean sheet of paper, no matter how convenient it would be for some folks to avoid being reminded of why we are where we are and how far we have to go to get where we might need to be.

As far as I know, BWOT is an "at will" board. We are each free to post or not as we evaluate the amount of time and effort to make our points heard.

The other thing I assess is whether there is any, even a slight amount, of humility in the one I'm debating. I learned, after shredding your arguments a few times, that "I was wrong" or "I hadn't considered that" is not in your vocabulary. This goes clear back to when you argued that retail cash deposits are earned income, through several tax issues, Islamists vs Islam, AM radio access, the origins of the housing crisis, the Bush admin efforts to fix those issues, and on and on.

You're used to running the show, but BWOT is a free market of ideas, which leaves you a little off balance. Now that you are a moderator, your test will come.

I take it that with your response, you agree with Shane--you do own some of the guys on this board.

I don't own anyone. I am an equal opportunity player.

But I do like the "at will". It lets you avoid the hard questions when asked to prove an assertion that you can't quite get together.

As for shredding arguments, whatever lets you sleep at night. If you think you have "shredded", cool for you.

How does exchange of ideas leave me off balance? If this board was all one side the sound of harumphs and atta boys would get very boring, very fast. It is the exchange of ideas and diversity of opinion on this board that is the absolute best it has to offer. NOTHING is better than the give and take of opposing ideas and the learning that goes with it.

You seem to think that I don't learn or change direction. You are a relative noob on the board so you don't know what morphing has occurred since 2004 but that's OK. You keep being you and I will keep being me.

As for what you take from my response, as usual, you inferences are somewhat misguided. But great avoidance and slide...again.

Kentucky
