I have no faith in the Republican Party in solving the debt crisis. In explaining why the Republicans believe what we believe is simple. Remember Ross Perot. He explained everything with charts. Charts here, charts there, charts everywhere. Perot knew how to explain facts; Republicans don't. At every talk show, the Republican representative should be using charts. He may look like a geek, but who cares as long as the message is getting across.

Most Republicans are far too interested in saving their jobs than in educating anyone about anything. It's depressing.

President Obama won the first round of his second term, but thanks to Mitch McConnell the beating wasn’t as severe as it could have been.

The period between the election and the turn of the calendar was dominated by the president, with Speaker John Boehner as his foil. The Speaker always seemed to assume the president was negotiating in good faith, even as the campaign events continued, and even as he was pummeled day and night by the president and his surrogates in the MSM.

The collapse of the Speaker's and the GOP’s ability to make an argument was complete...
