Judd Gregg

Judd Gregg is a Republican scoundrel. It's praiseworthy that President Obama is bending over backwards for the Republicans, going for any hint of a willingness on their part to act and serve as actual Americans, but now it's time to move on. He has taken all the first steps. In my opinion now it's time for him to yield to their intransigence, honor that as their political gambit, and govern simply as a Democrat.

We're actually lucky in a way that Gregg stepped down like he did. One thing we don't need is more Republican mucking up of the government. They had eight years of unbridled corruption and mismanagement and that ought to be enough; if it had been all some kind of innocent mistake, yes, bring them back into the fold and gently correct them, but it was all consciously malicious, an extreme, heinous case of malice aforethought.

Now that Gregg is out of the way, we don't have to fear a betrayal from within the Administration, at least from that quarter. It sounds like good news beyond that as well in this, that he says he's not going to run for reelection in 2010. So, yay! That's music to our ears. But, hey, the guy obviously lives on shifting sand and you can't trust anything that comes out of his mouth. He took the job, didn't he? Then he gave it up. Kind of a flip flop, and by '10 the other Republican scoundrels might talk him back into running.
