Who'd have thunk it? I just don't know what to think anymore.
More than a week ago, news anchors were predicting this very capitulation ,er... outcome. I mean, to a tee! Why not at least be a little mavericky and do something that might surprise even a news chuckler. If your "strategy is predicted by every 'Who Flung Dung' in front of a camera, I would like to suggest that it isn't a strategy at all.
I won't repeat myself about letting everything expire and then...blah, blah, blah.
If giving everyone a tax break for up to $250,000 and NOT borrowing to give tax breaks for billionaire Hedge Fund managers (what jobs do THEY create), and standing up to the Party of NO when they refuse to extend unemployment for those who can't find jobs -- well, if that makes me sanctimonious, then what is our President? And I will proudly wear my sanctimony for all to see.
