    Sound good? Here's the catch:

    That means Obama is committed to doing nothing at all about the deficit until at least next December but wants to be able to claim he is fiscally responsible while he spends and spends and spends in the meantime. Some people keep wanting to believe they are listening to Professor Obama, but time after time the clear evidence is that all they are getting is Whiplash Barry.

    The GOP has already wisely declined to participate in this particular exercise in butt covering and tax raising.
    They are getting smarter already. McCain would be endorsing such a move in the name of bipartisanship.

    I wish I could list all the time the DC clowns formed commissions to address the deficit and spending. The Greenspan Commission and the Moynihan Commission come to mind.

    Nothing ever happens. The MFs prefer their ponzi scheme to actually fixing it. It would have been easier to fix long ago, but neither party wanted to to anything.

    We need the MSM to punish the obstructionists, not the ones trying to fix SS & Medicare. This new commission won't do anything either, even though fixing SS is easy. Medicare is a tough problem, but there are tons of alternatives to consider
