Republicans should either take their toys and go home, or give the Dem's everything they want. The electorate ain't gonna figure it out until a real crisis is dumped in their living room.....like another 9/11 here, or a government that is so insolvent that it can no longer deliver the stuff they promised. Why drag this thing out like Europe is doing; let's just let it fall fast and hard, Then just may be the public will wake up to the cold fact that cumbaya foreign policy is dangerous, and there isn't enough money to pay for that "safety net" the Dem's have promised.

High-priced toys are becoming available to anyone solvent. Wealthy folks are cleaning up in the beach properties here in Florida. A childless friend with a working wife who paid off their house last year (a la Dave Ramsey) just bought a short sale 34 foot yaught from the bank for less than half the appraisal. I just bought a full dressed scarey rifle, scope, bipod, trigger job, 6 mags and $400 of ammo for less than 1/2 the over-extended original owner paid.

From Afghanistan to the economy, the to-do list facing the president of the United States is extensive and overwhelming. Townhall breaks down the challenges Obama inherited ... from himself.
