  2. Hmmm. By that logic, George Bush was a very successful president. Is that what you mean?

  3. Tano, let’s see if you can figure this one out on your own. I’ll give you a clue: start by asking yourself why property values decline. There are many reasons. But, in this case, it would involve shrinking demand for housing.

    OK, now, what’s the main “industry” in Washington, D.C.?

    Dan, you are asking Tano to think. (Rather than copy-and-paste talking points blasts.) And to know something about supply, demand, industry, economics… icky! You’re asking too much.

  5. Geez Dan,

    Do I have to actually use those little sarcasm tags with you? Or did you just not have your coffee yet this morn…?

  7. I wonder if Tano agrees with Obama that we got all we could from the Christmas Day bomber in the 50 minute FBI interview? After all the first 20 min had to be introductions and pleasantries.

  8. #6 Livewire: You can lead a horse, you have to shove a jackass. But that would not make your clever comment work, so I offer this only as a point of fact.
