When ever I hear a legislator say something like "common sense ideas," I cringe. What he means is the same thing Obama always means; "I'm going to do it my way," and by implication "You are an idiot if you don't think the same way I do."
Here is some common sense for you -
* If you feel the need to "do something" about a situation, try thinking first.
* If there is complete grid lock on an issue - maybe you shouldn't have started the negotiation with "my demands are off the table."
* Instead of spending millions traveling around the country, campaigning on an issue and trying to get voters to sway congress - why don't you stay in town and be a part of the negotiation?
* If ... shucks, I ran out of space....
