Carol, well you certainly appear up to snuff on insecure men, so, um, perhaps you could spend a few minutes describing the characteristics of secure ones? Then, when I'm comfortable enough, I can stick a toe in the water and, perhaps someday, begin even emulating them.

Astonishing really. This president came up with the idea of sequestration, signed it into law and then scares the phooey out of people when it's about to happen because he won't come to the table to cut spending responsibly and says it's all the republicans' fault.
This president claims transparency but it's the people who can't see the only transparency is the transparency of hypocrisy seems like we're in a bad B-rated movie.

Bob Woodward might be the first crack in the seemingly indestructable solidarity of the liberal media.
Woodward is considered a journalist among journalists in their eyes. And if he's blowing the whistle, there has to be some serious soul searching and self-reflection about blind loyalty among some in the liberal media about now.
He wants to sell books.

Only an insecure man would do what you're doing.

Are you really that intimidated by me?
By the way, I don't think I'm any smarter than many others on here. Which is what you said about me once. In fact, many others are much smarter than me.
But I do have a lot of common sense and care very deeply about the direction this country is going.
So why don't you be the man you claim to be and tell me why I'm wrong behind your own name and standing on your own two feet?
Um... this is embarrassing.. I was lying if I ever called you smart, carol, so we're in agreement there. Look, I don't want to hurt you... DAMMIT! There I go again... Anyways, sweetie, the whole wrong/right thing doesn't sound like me either, but, if pressed, I wouldn't describe you as wrong, precisely... you're more... a tool. Yes, that's it, surely. You're a tool of those very same men that you lovingly describe as, "secure." That's why you know so much about them because they told you what to say.

Now you could be forgiven for thinking you know what constitutes a secure woman, but how in the world would you know what a secure man looks like - and then to make the spurious claim that I'm not one - unless some one told you to? A man, for instance.

Well, there's still time to set you straight here so I'll give it the old college try. What constitutes a man is a functional penis and balls. Yup, that's it, that's the whole show. I'm not absolutely sure what constitutes a woman but I have my suspicions.

You need look no further than Genesis. God didn't throw those two crazy kids out of the garden for cooking did he? He didn't make judgements about who was on top or who was on the bottom did he? God tossed them out because he overlooked the fact that, dumb as he was, Adam would eventually figure out that his penis would fit in Eve's vagina; end of story.

I eagerly await your response describing what constitutes a secure man, but be forewarned I'm taking 40 points off your score because you're a woman.

It's not about that anyway, Lily. The purpose behind all of this is to try and destroy the opposition at any cost, at any risk.

It was supposed to end up reflecting bad on republicans.

But with three prominent democrats blowing the whistle on this administration's threats, lies and deception in the same week, it's backfiring on him.

Both, I suppose. I get inspired and awed when viewing moonlight through icicles on a cold crisp night of profound silence. Light's journey from the Sun to the Moon, through a clear night sky and then slowed through hanging ice, through my window, through my cornea, bouncing on to my retina , tickling my optic bio-cable and finally performing its magic within the mist of my neurons......reminds me of how much more important is the journey than the destination.

Why doesn't Obama send... 53 aircraft carriers, two puppies and a big-breasted redhead to the Middle East? I'll tell you why not, cause the American soldiers would just kill the puppies and gang rape the redhead like they always do. We're probably better just sending the Israelis... What do you mean the Israelis won't do what we tell 'em? We do what they tell us... where's the love? Seriously, folks, if "The Sequester" prevents us from invading more countries preemptively at the direction of Israel then shove a cork in my ass and let the austerity begin, y'all.
send the Israelis?

well i would think 115 billion of the taxpayers' dollars would get us something. though what we're getting from Texas is no bargain.

Your insistance on hiding behind my name and my identity describes what constitutes an insecure man. There's no need for me to describe what constitutes a secure man because it doesn't apply here.

Again with the insecure men. No, carol, I don't stalk anybody, at least not here. You're overlooking the other alternate explanation: I ensure that you come to me. I'm hopelessly charming to women and competitive men virtually fall all over themselves trying to get at me.

You must not be very good at scouring either because I think I mentioned I'd be going to St Barts last week and, surprisingly, I didn't carry you there with me. Your test run apparently coincided with my return flight, as sinister as that might seem in the paranoid world of Florida Jewry.

So, what'll we talk about now? Insecure men or paranoid women?

The Sequester Superhero

Why the Republican Party’s sequestration strategy only makes Obama stronger.

Republicans have one goal, running through all of these negotiations. They don’t want sequestration to be replaced by tax revenue. Any tax revenue. Forcing the president to swallow $85 billion in cuts this year would do that. They’ve got no obvious alternatives.

But a plan like this exposes a quirk of Obama-era fiscal hawksmanship. Republicans want specific cuts. Some of them—total repeal of Obamacare!—they’ll put on the record. The rest of them, they try to put on the White House. As soon as the “supercommittee” failed and sequestration looked real, it became “the president’s sequester.” The 2011 debt-limit deal delayed real action until after the 2012 election, betting $1.2 trillion of chips on its results and giving them to the president. Even the first great structural victory of the Tea Party, the ban on legislative earmarks, handed more clout to the White House.“The power to make thousands of spending decisions, on everything from which flood control projects will be funded to how spending on military bases will be distributed, to President Obama,” warned two political scientists at the time. Republicans ignored those particular political scientists.

Vote by vote, accidentally, Republicans are endorsing an imperial vision of the presidency. Perhaps they’re picking this up by osmosis. The default position of the punditocracy is that the president must lead. The lazy pundit invokes Harry Truman’s desk ornament,“The Buck Stops Here,” as a totem of great wisdom. Brendan Nyhan, who isn’t lazy, calls this “the Green Lantern Theory of the Presidency,” after the D.C. Comics superhero and his ring that runs on willpower. Bob Woodward offered a sterling example of the theory this week, when he suggested that the president’s willingness to obey the Budget Control Act (the law that mandates sequestration) was “madness.”
