John Boehner thinks he can put something together before Sunday night. At a minimum, Boehner should pass a clean up or down bill that raises the debt for twelve months. Forget spending, forget tax reduction or anything else in this bill. That will put the debate where it belongs, flatly in the middle of a national election and the people will have their say. Obama would not be able to veto it. He is bluffing and could not be so irresponsible in vetoing an extension that he has been telling to all is desperately needed.
All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.
