A National Melodrama and Comic Relief

Given the current melodrama, or fiasco if you prefer, playing out between the President and Congress over deficit reduction, the budget, and the debt ceiling this video certainly gives welcome comic relief.

However, to be truthful there should be a similar video of the Speaker, and or Tea Party representatives depicted as a huge elephant with a deeper "voice" speaking the same unintelligible language.

Is it any wonder that the American people are dismayed at the performance of the Congress? I new Rasmussen poll shows Congress has hit a new low, with only 6% of likely voters believing Congress is doing a good job.

As Michel A. Walsh of the New York Post points out The President shares some responsibility with respect to said fiasco.

It is beginning to appear the nation is the grip of a lack of leadership.

Comic relief lasts only so long.


  1. Nothing will be "solved" by whatever stinking deal the DC bandits cook up. The GOP needs to keep their eye on the ball, which is winning the PR battle and defeating Obama in 2012. Nothing else matters.

  2. It seems to me that - 1'st we resolve the debt/deficit issue, 2'nd resolve the debt ceiling issue thereby protecting the F,F & C of the USA, and 3'rd replace Obama with rational conservative that has the national self inyterest in mind.

    A damn tall order these days!

  3. Les,

    There's no such a thing as a "rational conservaive that has the nation interest in mind" who could become president these days.

    We haven't had anything like that since Nixon - and he was a little crazy.


  4. I think that Lawrence O'Donnell's prediction is probably the most plausible one. There won't be any sort of grand deal and the Congress will end up passing the typical one page raising the debt-ceiling proposal. The tea partiers will vote against it (saving face) and the rest of the Congress will pass it (knowing full well that we have to raise the debt-ceiling)....And we will have had all of this drama for nothing.
