This means peace in our Christmastime

When even CNN realizes that you're full of it, you haven't fooled many of the people;
As much as political leaders might try to cast it as some grand compromise, this week's deal is but a Band-Aid on the nation's economy, which will still require major surgery in the next few months.
Americans will have to live through the rounds of rigmarole that come with the next showdown.....
Then there's Obamacare. If the tea party and staunch conservatives in the GOP fail to get their anti-Obamacare measures passed, "the reaction is not going to be, 'Gee I guess we should surrender,' " said CNN "Crossfire" panelist and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.....
3. Even if members of Congress miraculously got along, Americans wouldn't trust them
There is no shortage of polls showing that Americans are fed up with their elected officials. A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll showed that 63% of respondents were angry at Republicans for their handling of the shutdown, 57% were mad at Democrats and 53% expressed disappointment with Obama.
Which was predicted in the 18th century when the American system of government was created; Men aren't angels, angels don't govern men, so the only protection the people have FROM their government is for faction to counter faction.

James Madison is smiling.
