About time this pig and most corrupt politicians resigned his posts. To bad to I wished he would have stayed would have made great fodder. Tax cheating son of bitch. How can democrats ask for more taxes and then cheat themselves. That is worse then the catholic preacher preaching god and then molesting children. The charges are serious and he will be prosecuted.
Well, the President finally appointed at least the beginning of his blue-ribbon commission on fiscal responsibility and reform, naming Alan Simpson and former chief-of-staff Erskine Bowles from the Clinton days to co-chair it. It's worth holding out hope for this, because Simpson's a good man—always been a renegade on the Republican side—and Bowles was experienced in Washington.
Again, compliments to the President. He is going to meet with the Dalai Lama next week despite the threats from China. This is a good sign. You don't deal with China from weakness. You have to show strength.
I'd like to end a positive note and affirm the wisdom of the American people. The latest ABC/Washington Post poll shows that 3/4 of Americans support openly gays in the military across all party lines. This is unprecedented—82% Democrats, 77% Independents and even 64% Republicans support gays in the military. That is a high mark on tolerance and compassion.
