I haven’t got time for a fully thought through post but here are a few random shots:
- When will Boehner or McConnell step up to a mic and say, “Read my lips, no new spending!”
- Congress has become nothing more for a social club. Elected members worry more about what other members think than standing for their own principles. Each incoming congressional freshman should put a sign on their office door that says, “If you are here to convince me of your position on an issue, please know that I am not here to satisfy your social needs, I am here to hold to my principles on behalf of those I represent.”
- The 111th Congress is dead, it just doesn’t know it. Where are those death panels when you need them?
- While not scientific, I spoke with several recruitment/temporary agencies in the mid Ohio valley this week. The consensus is that things are improving…slightly, but improving. They typically see a lull from Thanksgiving until after the first of the year. This year, their activity is picking up over the holidays.
