I hear that he wanted to tweet a picture of himself parting the Red Sea but his advisers thought that would be a tad over the top.
Dear IRS, I cannot pay my taxes on time because the tax payment web site we set up to pay our taxes keeps crashing.
Dear IRS, I cannot pay my taxes on time because half of the government of my household refuses to approve a budget.
I'm sure that fear caused by pressure from the administration was a factor. But there were probably other kinds of fear involved, such as the fear of what the history books of the future would have to say if the news media exposed the president who broke the color barrier as the corrupt incompetent that he is. Also the fear of looking like a bunch of stupidheads after believing he was the next Messiah.
I wish I had a magic wand to time-travel back to November 2009. (Or maybe October 2008...)

A Way to Get Hobby Lobby to 6-3?

This just occurred to me: If the Supreme Court rules in favor of Hobby Lobby, how many women would be affected? My guess is, not that many. Just guessing, but there probably aren't that many companies that have that kind of commitment to Christian values (unfortunately), and most of them are small, and the people that work for a place like that are more likely to share some of those values and thus wouldn't have as much desire for birth control. My point is: I'd bet that the amount of money it's taking to defend the mandate before the court is greater than it would take just to buy free birth control for all women who work for companies like Hobby Lobby. Heck, John Kerry could probably pay the entire cost without feeling any pain at all. But caring for women isn't the point--it's about government demanding that we give it more importance than we give God.

Whether it was solid or not, I think it was a blessing in disguise. Despite the pain and disruption it has caused, assuming we can get rid of it, we will be rid of it because we have seen just what a bad idea it was, not because of a Supreme Court ruling that many would have railed against, and in the big picture that will be better for the nation. Of course my assumption could be problematic.

Well, I believe that I have the right to decide what kinds of food to put in my own body, and the ACLU has no right to interfere with that. Therefore, they must pay for my lunch. Because if they don't, they're interfering with my right to eat what I choose. Or something like that.
If criminals weren't allowed to vote in DC, the vote on every House bill would be something like 11 to 9.
