Golly, with socialists like this, who needs reactionaries? 

He has no questions at all about the imperativeness of deficit 
reduction -- the admirers of William Jennings Bryan would 
have known better, a hundred years ago and more. And this 
pathetic reference to the "middle class"? "Shared sacrifice?" 
This is a socialist goal? 

I wouldn't have thought it possible for the guy to make 
me hate him more than I have for the last how many years; 
but he's managed it with this one. 

He was sorta fun as Mayor of Burlington -- at least, as 
seen from a distance; a dead loss during his endless years 
in the House; and now, a deficit hawk in the Senate. Ugh.
