The Right Needs To Extend The Olive Branch To The Left
When you forgive outright and double down with the refusal to be vindictive, even if it means paying for Social Security, knowing that you’re buying so much air, the Lefty can be helped through depression, into acceptance of the fact that the Progressive Era has been nothing but the most expensive failure in human history.

Emphasis mine. But this is the central message that needs to be hammered home by the liberty community to the American public, in 2010 and beyond: What the "progressives" have tried for the past century has not worked. It's time for something else. It's time to give another try to something we know works: liberty, individual freedom and personal responsibility.

But Hillary will always have at least one party to talk to whatever happens to Kim Jong Il: China. Behind Pyongyang is Beijing. Both in 1950 and 2010, China pulled North Korea’s strings. It provided and provides Pyongyang with Great Power protection. It uses Pyongyang to advance its agenda against Japan and South Korea. Hillary’s confident declaration that North Korea is a problem which will solve itself no longer looks so certain when one looks slightly beyond the Korean peninsula. In that context it is not terribly clear Hillary is right when she declares “that time is on our side”. Once the problem is defined in terms of America’s relationship with China then the timescales become comparable to those of Cold War with the Soviet Union. Suppose it is Beijing that is displaying strategic patience and not Hillary? Beijing is not likely to gloat publicly. After all Napoleon also counseled, “never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”

I suspect that it is not wise to play the game on China's terms . . . Appears only drilling mud flowing from well, BP says

Obama says he, not BP, in charge of effort to stop disastrous oil leak in Gulf _ 'It's my job' -- Actually, Sir, since you and your "progressive" allies have so drastically expanded the Federal government's reach and scope over the past hundred years or so, your job was to make sure that the oil spill didn't happen in the first place. You failed. Everything else is excuse, coverup, and misdirection. You made your bed of responsibility, Sir. You get to lay in it. Would a "Tar Baby" joke here be completely, utterly inappropriate? Yeah, I guess it would.
