    I'll go first:

    I posted my opposition to the Afghan surge but I now have to admit that it is paying off. Some very real progress is happening there. Some very hard-line militants have been killed, captured and/or driven to the negotiating table. It also appears that by expressing our own committment, we have convinced many allies to join in the effort in a much bigger way than they were before. (Pakistan & Russia to name two)

    So in that same spirit of honesty and now that our economic recovery is showing some real traction, it's time for some of you posters (you and I BOTH know who you are) to admit that you were wrong about the futility of the economic stimulus packages and to admit that you were wrong in your promises of hyper-inflation.

    I have no idea who you are referring to but I wonder why you conclude that since you think you were wrong on Afghanistan surge that has ANYthing to do with the economic stimulus package???

    I don't think nearly enough time has gone by to determine that yet.

    What facts do you point to as " real traction" ?

    I believed republicans back in '94, when they claimed that they would get rid of the Departments of Energy, Commerce and Edumacation (among other stupid programs) if given a majority in congress, and voted for them on that basis.

    They lied....I got suckered.

    Never!!!!!!

    It will be a cold day in Madonna's crotch before I admit I have ever been wrong.

    Though I may have to use some "nuance" regarding my oppostion to the invention of fire.

    They have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

    I agree - I signed onto the "Contract with America" and it wasn't me who breached that "contract"

    Good for you. BHO was wrong in shitting on our military for so long.

    What that has to do with any economic recovery that some imagine exists, I'm not sure.

    But good for you.

    First off, I have admitted on several sites, several times when I have made mistakes.

    Second, if you really wanted me to start listing my mistakes, I would not know where to begin. Last one I remember making, probably not the last one I made, was in regards to HRC when I said that any insurance company writing new policies on Wednesday was breaking the law because they were not qualified plans. Seems Antagon pointed out to me that this does not take effect until 2018.

    Third, if you really want a list of all my mistakes, I'd have to publish something about the size of the Holy Bible... so forget it.
