Bipartisan commission on government spending – complete theater

That’s right, it’s a complete dog and pony show, and the admission price may well destroy the American economy.

For my shortest post in history … Is this not what we send the congress-critters to Washinton, D.C. to do? Don’t we even give them a pretty good salary to do it?

We don’t need a stinkin’ commission, we already have … well, you fill in the blank.

More on this bipartisan theater headed by a couple of Washington inside-the-beltway types … Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson…

Alan Simpson for the “Republican” side? Really?

    When a house is burning, a fire chief does not appoint a panel of consultants time to debate which window to smash with an axe. You would end up with a pile of ash. This panel is more Dithering from a President who is clearly unqualified or unwilling to do the job he is elected into. Its your job Mr. President to keep this nation solvent. Passing the buck like this to some panel delays a job that is yours . It tells everyone we are going to get another year of business as usual. Day in  day out  another 4 billion in debt no doubt.
