Here in TooheyVille
yesterday we noted the plaintive offers of a fig leag leaf compromise of sorts by Messrs. Boehner and McConnell towards raising govt revenue in order to avoid this fiscal cliff they are so worried about.
We demonstrate over and over our true feelings about this sort of thing but somehow the boys from AEI and Weekly Standard and their serving minions fail over and over to understand the unmistakable message we send.
It’s very amusing.
Today I described one scenario we are considering regarding this.
It is 7 weeks until this scenario kicks off, and of course the congress people are beginning to run about nervously since there is little time to settle anything, let alone everything. We have a pool going here in TooheyVille
as to when these Republican children at all this will begin to bid against themselves. With all the time off they all take for themselves, I mean it is important for them to have their family time, is it not, well there are probably about 3 weeks.
There is no time, the issue is critical (at least to some) and we are going off. Once more. Toodle-OOO!
Newly re-elected President Obama resumes personal diplomacy next week with a planned Asia trip that includes the first-ever visit by a U.S. president to Burma.
The trip to Burma — also known as Myanmar — is designed to encourage the nation’s tentative steps toward democracy.
Obama will also travel to Thailand and Cambodia, which is hosting an Asian economic conference.
White House press secretary Jay Carney made the formal announcement:
“The President will travel to Bangkok, Thailand; Rangoon, Burma and Phnom Penh, and Cambodia.
Watch for our post cards, will you?
