Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Hypocrites unite to lower the debt

Hypocrites unite to lower the debt

If a politician falls in the forest, does anyone care? (Answer: Nope.)

Two of Kansas’ former Governors are going to DO SOMETHING about the debt situation in Washington.
Govs. John Carlin and Bill Graves have signed on to a group of former governors, called the Governors Fiscal Leadership Council. The group is comprised of 20 Republican has-been governors and 21 Democrat has-been governors and is part of a non-partisan movement called the Campaign to Fix theDebt.

I'll be honest. Every time one of these so-called "non-partisan" groups gets together to fix things, the tingly hairs on the back of my neck go up -- especially when the effort has scads of politicians signed on to "lead."

 This Campaign to Fix the Debt is filled with a bunch of people partially responsible for the mess we're in right now. Yeah, I'm talking to you, Evan Bayh, et. al. These are people who lobbied hard to bring bacon to their states, and now that the political winds have changed, they're doing they're level best to get out front of the winds, I guess, so they can get their mugs on television and feel important again. Yuck.
My level of faith in their efforts: zero. So a bunch of former politicians are going to sit around and blow a lot of smoke and flash a lot of mirrors. I don’t see it helping. The good news is all that hot air bellowing out of those narcissists may create a low pressure system over the United States. It won’t fix our debt problems, but it might help the summer stick around longer. So there’s that.
