This is truly like an Alice in Wonderland episode. What's even more ironic than a Catch-22? A Deficit-23?
The Washington Post reports that in the race to better represent "the nation’s gaping budget deficit" ... Romney is in danger of falling behind Obama. That's supposedly the only issue where Obama hasn't been "leading" Romney.
It's a sad day when candidates vie to be most out of paradigm in order to win election to a leadership position.
When supposed leaders have to prove that they're more wrong than the other guy to get elected ... you'd normally want to hedge your bets and look for an exit route. We better hope the USA is resilient enough to survive ignorant leadership and a misinformed electorate. Rome wasn't, but of course that was a long time ago.
Can somebody resurrect the Rhyme of the Ancient Marriner Eccles? Our current electorate & Congress has forgotten it.
