    ....if Obama admitted he doesn't have a clue as to what he's doing?

    "Wouldn't it be nice if the new "super committee" would actually make real progress in reducing enormous federal budget deficits?"

    Yes, but it isn't going to happen. Right now Obama is in the middle of a hornet's nest and he's getting stung from every possible direction. Debt reduction is the last thing on his mind.

    Hopefully he'll hang in there long enough to get the Democratic nominations for president in 2012. The last thing the Republicans want to see is someone competent stepping in to fill his shoes.
