    I've spent a good deal of time banging on the Republicans here but its not like the Democrats are wowing anybody with their stunning competence. Consider

    - Obama has been willing to demagogue the rich by singling out private jet owners

    - The Democrats haven't passed a budget in forever

    - And the current budget has the US running a budget deficit of 3% of GDP five years from now, when the economy is supposed to be running at full bore, which is even worse than under Bush.

    - Many Democrats have said that we shouldn't cut one red cent from SS or Medicare. Didn't Pelosi make a speech holding a penny to make that point?

    - The Democrats seem to be intent upon imposing "Californication" on the country by giving tax cuts to everyone and increasing taxes on the rich

    - Obama creates a Deficit Reduction Commission, then ignores its recommendations

    - It's not all the Republicans' fault that we are playing chicken with catastrophe. Obama has said his healthcare plan is off the table. Why is it not on the table? Why isn't everything on the table?

    I'm sure there is more, but this list is depressing enough.

    It's all fun and games, until someone loses an entitlement

    I know I'll be watching this thread with great amusement as the same people who called Toro various names and said he's completely wrong about the Republicans and the debt ceiling will completely agree with him here.

    Just take a few puffs on a bong pipe and keep some Vaseline handy. That'll help you trust the Democrats.
