I think you're wrong about who sought him out. I think he was sought out by the Soros organization. They were looking for a clean looking image in someone who was well spoken. The rest would be marketing and money...Soros provided both. What Soros got was a man who is first of all short on detail…can’t manage crap and who is a lot on the lazy side. He doesn't like to dirty his hands with the mundane day to day details like the oil spill or an unacceptable unemployment rate. The unions are just one part of the Soros organization.

I would like to see Congress stay away from this issue. That body has screwed up enough for one year. We will all be better off if they decide to go on vacation until the November elections.

This will never happen. Politicians will never agree to lowering the amount of money they recieve. That is the reason they are politicians to start with, to recieve money. Why else would some of them spend millions of their own money to get paid 150k per year?

He's moving us toward Marxism by using his beloved Cloward and Piven Plan. A government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Beirut was once a beautiful city till the muzzies moved into the neighborhood. You sure its not the illegals that have trashed Houston or Dallas. Maybe Texas should follow Governer Brewers advice.

Actually, a combination of terrorist bombings, Syrian hegemony, and Israeli air attacks left it partly in ruins.

No idea what "the muzzies" are, but that's more like what REALLY happened.
