Yellow journalism is alive and well.
Yer Bartlett dood is a loose canon with a few loose screws. He was pro Supply-Side and now he's against it? Some of the people who support his schizophrenic behavior are high society crooks. For example, Robert Hormats is a well connected wine-and-croissants jerk who was formerly Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs and then traipsed all through the U.S. Government kissing butts. At one point, he violated SEC Rules by opening his big mouth to investors about a Chinese move that had not yet taken place.
A perfect world does not exist and this means that those people in it are not perfect. You are painting in Black & White while the rest of us are painting in 64 million colors.
Time for you to fall back and reconnoiter. In daylight.
"For example, Robert Hormats is a well connected wine-and-croissants jerk who was formerly Vice Chairman of Goldman Sachs and then traipsed all through the U.S. Government ..." Yes, his BOSS was Bush W's Treasury Secretary Henry Paulsen, Goldman Sachs CEO wonderboy goldbrick ,who said that everything was fine one day before Lehman Bros. collapsed--with idiot bosses like that no wonder Bartlett never trusted their judgement again. Reaganomics was an epic fail every time it was tried.

Your point. Make your point.

I just spoke to the fact that we live inside an imperfect world run by imperfect people.

Yes, it is one of her least idiotic statements ,but that's not saying much. Sarah Palin totally missed President Obama's overall cautious approach in limiting U S involvement in the Syrian civil war by a modest escalation from strictly humanitarian , non-lethal aid to providing small arms and ammunition to the rebels without no fly zones or direct troops on the ground. This is a good way to apply greater pressure on Assad and indirectly on his two main Great Power allies Russia and China, who don't want direct U.S. military intervention , to accept a peace settlement by negotiation with the rebels.

I don't mind helping someone out that's having trouble and is willing to help themselves. Its the cradle to grave bs that needs to be stoped. assistance should be at best limited to a very short temporary time and food stamps should be changed to food vouchers redemable for a spicific staple food product and have no cash value.
Lots of people run into some hard times and can use a hand up,there are also those who are incapable to fend for themselves , but for the people that refuse to do anything for themselves and only exist as parasites ,let them starve,they will never contribute to society so why shoud society be forced to contribute to them.
