Our Most Populist President Ever

bo barnJust like you guys, I spread it around every day too!

I’m not sure we’re going to get to the bottom of the TOTUS hacking incident. Personally, I think TOTUS was just messing with Big Guy because he was getting bored. After all, he’s been stuck scrolling the same populist stump speech for both Big Guy and Lady M –  churning out class warfare rhetoric to thunderous applause, for weeks on end now. It’s getting a little stale.

I want this to be a big, bold, generous country where everybody gets a fair shot, everybody is doing their fair share, everybody is playing by the same set of rules.

bo trumka remember gwb and angela merkle, at least she was a womanOn the Peoples’ Farm all animals are equal, butt some are more equal than others

Of course TOTUS does do a little customizing, depending on the special interests of the group on deck: that’s known as target marketing.

Do we want to keep these tax cuts for folks like me who don’t need them?

Or do we want to invest in the things that will help us in the long term – like (fill in the blank…)

For example, with our Hispanic fans, we talk about immigration reform,

goya national strategic partner for USDA My Plae or Mi PlatoMi plato es su plato

for business groups – less red tape,

bo business senseHi! I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.

for the Greenies, clean energy -

bo clean energyYay! Natural Gas! Butt no fracking! Or pipelines. Otherwise, go ahead.

and for students – we offer more grants, aid and cheaper tuition.

2012-01-27T155526Z_01_WHT06_RTRIDSP_3_OBAMAButt you’re on your own when it comes to finding a job

Butt then, towards the end of the student stump speech at the University of Michigan last week we added a new twist:

But we also understand that we’re not successful just by ourselves. We’re successful because somebody started the University of Michigan. (Applause.)

We’re successful because somebody made an investment in all the federal research labs that created the Internet.[H/T: Al Gore] We’re successful because we have an outstanding military -- that costs money.

We’re successful because somebody built roads and bridges and laid broadband lines. And these things didn’t just happen on their own.

That meme - “nobody does it on their own”  - sounds familiar; where have I heard that before, only with better grammar and syntax? Oh yes, last September from one of Big Guy’s surrogates running for the Senate: Elizabeth “there’s nobody in this country who got rich on his own” Warren.

warren aptCzarina Elizabeth Warren with Big Guy and Turbo Timmy

"You built a factory out there? Good for you. But I want to be clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the rest of us did."

While there’s a point in there somewhere, I’m not sure she’s right about the factory owners  not having to worry about marauding bands coming to seize everything they have:

spreading the wealth around One way to spread the wealth around: Occupy a jewelry store!

Apparently some of the OWIES have taken the call to class warfare seriously, and have decided to take matters into their own hands:

Screenshot Studio capture #366The Occupy Oakland crowd, last night, taking it to the streets

And since class warfare has been officially declared, we’re sending all of our surrogates out to spread the message. Here’s Valarie “people didn’t get wealthy alone” Jarrett taking up the mantra last Wednesday with Reverend Al:

Screenshot Studio capture #364

They know that people didn't get wealthy alone. They got wealthy because they live in a country that where a government is doing what it's supposed to do. Educates our children, it provides infrastructure, roads and bridges. It provides the research dollars for science and technology.

To demonstrate, let’s explore how Val  became wealthy, because I assure you she didn’t do it “alone.” First, she had the help of Chicago Mayor Harold Washington when she worked for him, which landed her in the office of the even more powerful Mayor Richard Daley. As you know, life isn’t an even playing field. Nobody, especially nobody of color, can WTF without special connections, arrangements, strings, cords and opportunities. And Valerie Jarrett used all of the above to  collect earn her way into the 1% club so she could help others get there too.

And just as her high powered contacts landed her high paying jobs and seats on powerful state and corporate boards, she used her contacts to help many others. For example, she returned the favors she was shown by using her acquired power to help other deserving little people. Like the partners in Rezmar, Tony Rezko and Dan Mahru who – until they got rich with the help of Val and others in the Daley machine administration – were just a couple of the 99%-ers selling snacks on the city’s beaches. With proper “help” however, they were able to turn into wealthy “developers” by renovating and managing slums low income housing projects for the city of Chicago. And all they needed to be a little more equal than others was a little help!

In true pay it forward fashion, Tony Rezko helped many others get more equal too. In fact, he came to be known in Chicago as a political “fixer.” Which means roughly “helping others get wealthy.”

the_clintons_with_tony_rezkoTony, Bill and Hill: the “helping others get rich” meme has been around for a long time.

Most notably, Tony – who was just another guy in the neighborhood – is known for “helping” BO and MO buy a nicer house then they could afford, thus making them a little wealthier. That’s just the way it works.  I’m sure everybody already knows all about this, because it was covered extensively when Big Guy was running for president. Right?

Tony, of course, is now serving 10+  years in the federal hoosegow on felony charges. Something about “using his connections to state boards to demand kickbacks.” I’m pretty sure Val didn’t have anything to do with those “connections to state boards” because she’s not been charged with anything. And she’s smarter than Tony.

Tony deserves to be in jail for his crimes, Not only did he break the “helping'” chain, he violated the first rule of people whose wealth came about as a result of other peoples “help.” He got caught.

rezkoThis effectively takes Tony out of the “helping” others get rich quick pool for awhile

And now his former partner, Dan Mahru, has been disbarred for defrauding his own mother. The charges are for embezzling the trust set up to provide for her long term care. So it’s all probably a big misunderstanding.  What kind of a person would do a thing like that? Although, he may have thought she would have no use for the fund, now that Obamacare will be taking care of her.

the case for killing granny

As far as Elizabeth goes, I don’t know who helped her get into the 1% club. All I know is that she is a member, and membership has its privileges. She came from humble beginnings – as most wealthy Democrats seem to – and is now living in a $5 million house and holds a stock portfolio worth nearly $8 million. Since she and her husband have both been college professors I guess it’s possible they just earned it – without anybody’s help. Although that seems to undermine her argument a bit.

So maybe this is the new American Story: from pulling yourself up by your bootstraps to whining about America’s power and strength.

From Horatio Alger -


to Noam Chomsky in one short century

 chavezUNchom_372Hugo touting Noam’s Hegemony or Survival: do you need to know any more?

I don’t see how this ends well.


As you can see frozen on TOTUS’ screen below, we have a situation here at the Big White. TOTUS went rogue at the end of Big Guy’s comments the other day and slipped in a George W. Bushism (2 G-words in 1 read) which Big Guy read right out loud.

Now we’re in lockdown, and everyone’s scrambling to find out who hacked into TOTUS to insert those words at the end of Big Guy’s read speech.

Due to the gravity of the situation, I’ll be unable to use the innertubes around here until this afternoon. Please check back later when, hopefully, we’ll have everything back to our godless normalcy.

bo god bless

Say a little prayer for TOTUS.

Frackin’ Genius

With only 9 months to go, both Lady M and Big Guy will be busy sacrificin’ nearly every day between now and next November. Accordingly, Lady M was in battleground Florida yesterday in her seams-on-the-outside Jason Wu making an impassioned plea for the Hispanic vote:

just the frock for grocery shoppingIn case you were wondering how to translate the helpful USDA “MyPlate” into Spanish, here you go!

We’ve teamed up with Goya Foods, who agreed to provide the Hispanic community with propaganda information on Lady M’s ideas for proper nutrition in exchange for Obamacare waivers and a future draft pick. And you can hear how passionate she is about our Hispanic fat behinds: “Everything that Goya is doing – from the MiPlato posters and pamphlets to cookbooks and recipes – center around the idea that we parents can make simple changes to help their children lead healthier lives.” I’m not sure, butt I think that’s probably proper syntax in Spanish.  

In the meantime BO was on the road in Las Vegas and Colorado touting his Clean Energy 2.0 plan. Since all of our solar/wind/battery investments are going belly-up, we’ve moved on to hawking clean natural gas! Did you know that trucks can be converted (at great cost) to run on natural gas? Of course, natural gas refueling stations are not yet widely available on the intercontinental highways criss-crossing America. Butt that just opens up another opportunity for crony capitalism more federal spending investment in our energy future while mortgaging our children’s future.

bo clean energy

And as luck would have it, guess who’s heavily invested in the only company positioned to do those diesel engine conversions to run on natural gas? George Soros!  While you might think that smacks of the same old crony capitalism butt it’s really just a coincidence.  Georgie (as Big Guy refers to him) is just about one of the most prescient businessmen around.

So anyway, now that we are totally on board with "…an all-out, all-in, all-of-the-above strategy that develops every source of American energy"  (except oil and coal of course). Butt watch out, because when the Greenies discover that all of this “all-out, all-in, all-of-the-above” strategy involves fracking, they’ll raise a fracking ruckus! Just like they did about the Keystone XL and that will put us right back to solar cells, windmills and mice on treadmills.

Anyway, Big Guy’s wrapping up this week’s battle ground state campaign jobs and economic recovery tour with a speech at the University of Michigan, in the People’s Republic of Ann Arbor, before returning for a little R&R ahead of next week’s battle.

fired up and ready to go

BTW, I see we’ve adopted the all-out all-in red shirt campaign. Again, I take issue with the slogan writers around here: “I’m Fired Up”? Isn’t that expression from, like, back in the 70’s?


Do we really want to remind our countrymen of that decade? When just about everything that could break was broken? I think not.

bo door to designated areaDanger! Danger! Remember: If you break it, we own it.

I would like to take this opportunity to pass on Lady M’s good advice, slightly paraphrased : “We voters can make simple changes to help our children live better lives.”  

I thought she wanted to win???

Turkey Day: Thin skinned, Breasts and Necks. Mmm, mmm mmm!


Having successfully kicked off our campaign season on Tuesday night, we took the show on the road yesterday. As always, there were critics:


Big Guy took the opportunity yesterday to express his displeasure with Governor Brewer’s review of his performance. I guess he must have been absent from leadership class the day they covered Henry Ford II’s  #1 Rule: “Never complain, never explain.” 

Maybe I’ll talk with Chef Comfy here at the Big White, and have her include more foods rich in biotin. I understand that’s good for the skin. It may help with all the thin skin syndrome on display around here lately .

Butt I get ahead of myself: first campaign stop was in Cedar Rapids Iowa where he visited Conveyor Engineering and Manufacturing. And just between you and me – I think I’d find a new advance man for these industrial tours. I just don’t think our current team is thinking these photo ops through very well.

conveyor engineering and manuf. Yes sir, that is one giant screw.

OBAMAWhy don’t you sent me about a hundred gross. You can bill the American taxpayer.

Then we were on to Phoenix (see above for our arrival). There we visited the site of a new, huge Intel plant where they’re going to make more of those little Intel chips that power your PC.

bo intel erector setBO, TOTUS: right at home with his erector sets in Chandler, AZ.

After that chilly meeting on the tarmac, things went quite well. And the construction workers at the plant even got a day off!

Intel chandler azConstruction ground to a halt for the day

Unfortunately without pay…. 

More than 1,500 workers were asked to stay home for security reasons as the president toured the future site of a $5-billion Intel manufacturing facility in Chandler.

The workers will not be paid for the forced day off.

It’s not as though this sort of thing has never happened before. Why, just last May workers were furloughed without pay for security reasons when Big Guy visited…uh, Solyndra. Never mind.

Butt look at the upside: next week we can take credit for putting 1500 union employees back to work!

On the local front, Lady M was busy with her campaign yesterday too. She went to Parklawn Elementary School to discuss our No Child’s Fat Behind program.

mo lunch line Marching in the lunch line: Mmmm! Yummies just ahead!

And to prove that the food being served in the SEIU Healthy Eats program is actually edible, contrary to reports coming out of our California encampment, Lady M joined the lunch crowd.

Making Lady M’s visit even more special was the fact that she was accompanied by mutual Oprah gal pal, celebrity chef Rachael Ray. Wow! At least it was someone who use to be Rachael Ray.

This SOTU proudly brought to you by the Soros Fund

Lady M wore a gorgeous new, blue fitted Tfank dress for Big Guy’s first, historic third State of the Campaign Union read last night:

new bleu fitted mo

Everything else was apparently recycled:

Big Guy’s opening was strong: he took credit for killing Osama Bin Laden and weakening the Taliban.


He even remembered to thank the small people who were really responsible:

These achievements are a testament to the courage, selflessness and teamwork of America’s Armed Forces.  At a time when too many of our institutions have let us down, they exceed all expectations.  They’re not consumed with personal ambition.  They don’t obsess over their differences.  They focus on the mission at hand.  They work together. 

It was pretty much downhill from there. Because while Big Guy is all about focusing, everyone else around here seems to be consumed with “personal ambition and obsessing over their differences instead of focusing on the mission at hand.”

So anyway, BO declined to talk about the rest of our successful initiatives: lowering the cost of health care (up 18%), lowering the cost of gasoline (up 84%) lowering the cost of...well, you get the idea. Nor did he take credit for all the money we’ve pumped into alternate energy (Solyndra, et al), or for all the guns his BATF took out of circulation here in the US by sending them to Mexico. Butt I guess you can’t spend too much time bragging when there are still so many fish to fry.

So here’s a very short wrap up of the major themes from last night:

  1. Blame Bush: “It was wrong.  It was irresponsible.  And it plunged our economy into a crisis that put millions out of work, saddled us with more debt, and left innocent, hardworking Americans holding the bag.  In the six months before I took office, we lost nearly 4 million jobs.” i.e. it’s really all Bush’s fault, like I’ve been telling you for 3 years now.
  2. Blame the rich: Right now, because of loopholes and shelters in the tax code, a quarter of all millionaires pay lower tax rates than millions of middle-class households.  Right now, Warren Buffett pays a lower tax rate than his secretary.” i.e. they need to pay their fair share. Are you listening Mitt?
  3. Blame Congress: “As long as I’m president, I will work with anyone in this chamber to build on this momentum. But I intend to fight obstruction with action, and I will oppose any effort to return to the very same policies that brought on this economic crisis in the first place.” i.e. I’ll end run you and do it myself if I have to. That’s what executive orders and recess appointments were created for. Can you hear me now?
  4. New regulation: “That’s why we need smart regulations to prevent irresponsible behavior."  i.e. like buying a house you can’t afford. Or incandescent light bulbs.
  5. More clean energy: “Some technologies don’t pan out; some companies fail. But I will not walk away from the promise of clean energy.” i.e. I’m going to continue to spend tax dollars on the alternate-energy companies I like. And I like all of them that have bundled adequate campaign funds. And I love you, Greenies!!
  6. More education for all. “Higher education can’t be a luxury -– it is an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford.” i.e. we’ll send your kid to college no matter what his interests or abilities. Because It’s only fair. And I love you 18-30 somethings!!
  7. More immigration reform: “We should be working on comprehensive immigration reform right now.” i.e. I love you Hispanics!! Legal and undocumented!!

Fair this, square that, change the rules: I guess you have all heard this before. The SOTU has become somewhat of an anachronism that has outlived it’s usefulness in the age of the innertubes where everyone who cares, knows everything as soon as it happens and sometimes before.

So if we’re just going to use this soap box as a major campaign address, maybe we should bundle some sponsors and rename it: Maybe the “Goldman Sachs State of the Union Address” or the “General Motors State of the Unionor possibly even the “Berkshire Hathaway State of the un-Union”. That way we could stop pretending to be post partisan, and raise some serious dough.

supremes sotu


Butt as it was, Big Guy’s rather ho-hum recycled read speech had even the loyalists reacting in a bit of a “been there, done that” fashion:

  hill bored

…and speaking of fashion: that brings me back to Lady M and her courtesans.

mo fan clubLady M, in her box surrounded by all of last night’s political hostages

While Lady M was entertaining our political guests, including Warren Buffet’s overtaxed secretary, in her box Big Guy was down working the floor. He took time out to air kiss his secretary and thank her and her team for sending in the SEALS to rescue the political hostages in Somalia last night.

 the unsuccessful dodge

Anyway, a whole 65 minute speech, and only one mention of our Winning the Future plan, and that in a rather strange context: “Don’t let other countries win the race for the future.” WTF? We Can’t Wait! How are we going to give everyone a fair shot at their fair share if we don’t Win the Future? WTF?

SOTU: It’s Not Just A Drinking Game Anymore

I’m sorry for misleading you on the SOTU – I was so anxious I got ahead of myself. Of course Big Guy’s first, historic, third the State of the Union speech is tonight! How could Big Guy give the most important speech of this campaign season on the same day he entertained the Stanley Cup winners (minus their goalie)?

6xstanley cup bostonbruinWhat? All I get is a puck?  How about one of those Stanley Cups? 

Seriously, I’m sorry for misleading you yesterday. If I had just checked Lady M’s schedule it would have been obvious that the big Speech wasn’t until today: her special detox and body wrap session is booked for this morning and Derrick Rutledge isn’t scheduled to perform his $15k/day artistry on Lady M until this afternoon.

        ladies home journalMichelle_Obama__cover_Newsweek_obesity_children___promote_health_wellness_American_communities_thumb[2]Hiiiiiiiiiiiii! Come on in!!!


The results of Derrick’s handiwork (with as assist to the in-house ‘shoppers)

He’s already lined up for next week too when Lady M will be appearing on the Jay Leno show (officially to talk about our No Child’s Fat Behind program, butt unofficially to kickoff of our official campaign season.)

Anyway, back to Big Guy’s speechifying. He kept his calendar free today in order to put the last minute spins recommended from the final round of input from our team of pollsters who were still busy as of late last night testing ideas for CHANGE with likely voters. You may wonder how we can incorporate such last minute ideas into Big Guy’s speech. Let’s just say we’re all professionals around here, and with the benefit of a staff of professional writers and TOTUS we can hang loose and be flexible. Something that George W. Bush was never able to do because his ideas seemed to be set in stone.

I can’t give you a draft of the speech, butt the talking points are already out there for our media lapdogs to start writing supportive copy. Here’s the Cliff Notes preview of his Teddy Roosevelt “Do-nothing Congress, so I’ll do it myself” speech:

• In Osawatomie, Kansas, the president talked about how this is a make or break moment for the middle class, and about how we can go in two directions. Less opportunity and less fairness — or where the president believes we need to go: building an economy that works for everyone, not just a wealthy few.

• Building off the themes of the Kansas speech, the State of the Union will lay out a “Blueprint for an America built to last.” The blueprint will be supported by four pillars: 1) American Manufacturing; 2) American Energy; 3) Skills for American Workers and 4) American Values.

• American Manufacturing: He will lay out proposals for how we’ll bring about a new era of American manufacturing, with more good jobs and more products stamped Made in the USA. Proposals will include tools that will help American small businesses to compete and grow.

• American Energy: He will present a new era for American energy — an economy fueled by homegrown and alternative energy sources that will be designed and produced by American workers.

• Skills for American Workers: The speech will include new ideas for how we’ll make sure our students and workers get the education and training they need so that we have a workforce ready to take on the jobs of today and tomorrow.

• American Values: And most importantly, the president will call for a return to American Values – of fairness for all, and responsibility from all.

What to expect: populism on steroids. It will include broad-based tax reform (tax the rich more, everyone else, less – that’s a fair shake) mortgage refinancing (Eat the banks, that’s fair), higher taxes on upper earners (duh!), and an expiration of the Bush tax cuts (hello - “Bush” tax cuts?).

Whew! It’s going to be another doozy. And I’m not just talking about Lady M’s frock.

I’m sorry, I’ve got to run as it’s a busy day for me too, as you might imagine. The big reveals are always tense.

mo big reveal

And sometimes they’re downright scary:

Obama family arrives at US Capitol prior to inauguration swear-in

I see that many of you are too busy this evening to watch Big Guy’s book report, so I’ll do my best to recap tomorrow. Butt if you want to have fun, play the hot new game, “Name Big Guy’s First SOTU Cliché: 2012 Edition.” I’m sure the prizes are spectacular, and they are even giving odds! Butt remember, it’s not a drinking game, although I don’t believe the rules prohibit a martini or two while playing. Just be careful out there.

We Are Not Worthy.

Believe me, I’d like to let this drop. Butt apparently no one else does.

This time it’s MoDo over at the NYT.  Did you see this? It’s Maureen off her meds again. We haven’t seen this level of fear and loathing from her since the unhinged “Bushie" bashing days.

maureenIt’s a long hard road for some people without anti-depressants and wrinkle cream

As far as I can tell her only point is to vent. Big Guy hasn’t turned out to be precisely the savior and messiah she had invested in.  Which is odd, because with BO, past performance WAS, indeed, a guarantee of future results. It’s just that so few people of her acquaintance ever bothered to check out his past.

Butt I digress. Apparently no one ever warned MoDo to beware of false gods. Here she is at her finest, whining that everything she had projected onto America’s Savior turns out to have been just that: shadows on the wall of the cave.

Watch Maureen go rogue:

For eight seconds, we saw the president we had craved for three years: cool, joyous, funny, connected.

obama-dance-515x500Some worry more about what it is he’s connected too

She’s referring of course to Big Guy’s decidedly un-presidential impersonation of Al Green to his “fans” at the Apollo fundraiser last week (here, if you were fortunate enough to have somehow missed it and wish to end your lucky streak).

“I, I’m so in love with you,” Barack Obama crooned to a thrilled crowd at a fund-raiser at the Apollo in Harlem on Thursday night, doing a seductive imitation as Al Green himself looked on. (snip)

The man who came to Washington on a wave of euphoria has had a presidency with all the joy of a root canal, dragged down by W.’s recklessness and his own inability to read America’s panic and its thirst for a strong leader.

Poor Maureen, she can’t help herself: the “Bushies” started this ruination of America for her, and she will never let you forget it.  Butt we move on.

In an interview with Fareed Zakaria for this week’s Time cover story, the president is maddeningly naïve.

obama_light_sabreI will smite all things I deem to be evil with my light sabre. I am awesome.

How could he not be naïve, at least politically? After all, he arrived at the top of the heap with only 2 other political victories, and both of them were bought, paid for and delivered by the Chicago Mob. Big Guy never even had to get his hands dirty. Even Lady M  pointed out that he was a man, not a prophet, and he hadn’t yet achieved much.” Maybe MoDo should have listened to MO more, and BO not so much.

Asked about his cool, aloof style and his unproductive relationship with John Boehner, Obama replied: “You know, the truth is, actually, when it comes to Congress, the issue is not personal relationships. My suspicion is that this whole critique has to do with the fact that I don’t go to a lot of Washington parties. And as a consequence, the Washington press corps [ed. let the record reflect that he did not refer to the press corps as press ‘corpse’] maybe just doesn’t feel like I’m in the mix enough with them, and they figure, well, if I’m not spending time with them, I must be cold and aloof. The fact is, I’ve got a 13-year-old and 10-year-old daughter.”

Boy, I hope other people don’t read that as a cold, aloof reproach of the press. If you wanted to get picky, you could even describe it as dismissive, sometimes even derisive. It seems to imply that the press ought to be spending more time with their families as well.

MoDo doesn’t mention that not chatting up the press at various soirees around town was one of George W Bush’s capital offenses too. Instead, she rewinds back to Ronnie who didn’t swill cocktails with the press either.

Reagan didn’t socialize with the press. He spent his evenings with Nancy, watching TV with dinner trays. But he knew that to transcend, you can’t condescend.

Ouchie! Did she just infer that Big Guy is…condescending?

What do you want now, little man?

The portrait of the first couple in Jodi Kantor’s new book, “The Obamas,” bristles with aggrievement and the rational president’s disdain for the irrational nature of politics, the press and Republicans.

Let’s see; “disdain for the irrational nature of politics, the press and Republicans.” Some might call that sort of thing peevishness. Or maybe it’s just naiveté. 

obama-eating-wafflesIs “just wanting to eat your waffle” peevish? Or naïve?

And then there’s this:

Despite what his rivals say, the president and the first lady do believe in American exceptionalism — their own,

two tone black

Whoa! That one stopped me dead in my tracks. I thought I might have written it myself! Thank goodness I hadn’t.

…and they feel overassaulted and underappreciated. We disappointed them.

mo and her wee wons

As Michelle said to Oprah in an interview she did with the president last May: “I always told the voters, the question isn’t whether Barack Obama is ready to be president. The question is whether we’re ready. And that continues to be the question we have to ask ourselves.”

They still believed, as their friend Valerie Jarrett once said, that Obama was “just too talented to do what ordinary people do.”

Now that’s won I can get onboard with. Big Guy took a demotion to accept the job of POTUS, and, in spite of Lady M reminding us almost daily, we just don’t seem to appreciate how big a sacrifice that is.


What a bunch of ignorant, shallow, self-absorbed ingrates! Shame on us!

I think MoDo will probably feel better after Big Guy’s SOTU speechifying tonight. Instead of blaming the press, he’s going to blame the Do-Nothing Congress. Who can’t get on board with that?

developing_Communities_ProjectThe Professor is in: Tonight he will explain how things work in Washington, and why nothing is his fault.
