Bob, Bob, Bob - You're missing the point!

Re: Debt Limit Endgame (Jonathan Rauch & Rich Lowry)

I agree - I mean, I totally disagree with Lowry, but I love to hear him talk - intelligent conservatives are the reason I come here. BHTV has way too many airheads on the right. Lowry isn't the best...

anecdotal data on obama
