...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

Cutting to the Chase

Kos makes a very concise and true point on the SC nomination of John Roberts:

Rather than take their time and find the right candidate, it looks like Bush, Rove and Co. simply picked the first guy that looked good.

Because in this administration, short-term political gain trumps everything.

Everything about this administration is short-term. There has never been one ounce of vision come out of this White House. "Political Capital" seems to be good only for immediate power plays - not to be used for the long term good of the citizens. Of course, considering every move George W. Bush and Karl Rove have made since they came on the political scene, how could we expect anything else?

The problem is, all their nearsighted decisions will do one thing: leave us all with long-term crap to have to clean up after them.
