And playing politics with the Nation's economy in dire straits is unpopular. Who knew? Speaker Boehner has shown some backbone
and not given in to the Democratic demands, insanely, to raise taxes on job creators during a particularly limp time of the very slow and weak recovery of the economy. As I looked onthe Real Clear Politics poll averages, I noticed that the president's approval numbers ticked down and the generic Republican popularity ticked up. Mere coincidence?
Diomedes, who used to write here, is in a funk because he thinks we'll get killed in 2012 in the Senate and House elections because we'll be punished for even talking about cutting entitlement spending like social security and medicare. I have a little more faith in my fellow citizens who know that you can't spend more than you take in forever.
