RE: But the take-away from the House retreat was a testament to GOP business as usual: Voters want lower taxes and less government.

GOP business as usual - more government, less taxes to support it, borrow to cover it. That's called social irresponsibility. It's much like a teenager with a credit card - I want it now, I'm entitled to it, but I certainly don't want to pay for it.

Would our state's designated adults please identify themselves now?

"About 10 miles east of Destin, the 500-acre WaterColor resort is an alcove of picturesque cottages, hidden across the road from the sandy white beaches of Northwest Florida but just a short bike ride from a Starbucks."

It is obvious that the GOP good at cutting out the fat except when it comes to themselves. The Fat Cats live on.

I've read a couple of articles regarding this GOP meeting. Each one is totally obsessed with the notion that a group would use "private" funds to convene at nice resort. I mean, how ridiculous is that? How dare those evil republicans spend their own money the way they want to! And to make matters worse, by spending money, they might even contribute to an ailing economy. How selfish!

You journalists need to stop with these snide insinuations and start reporting news in its proper perspective.
