- The old vets getting denied access to the monuments is absurd. Especially the ‘BarryCades’ on day two. But on the whole it’s not an argument / observation I can proffer with much enthusiasm. Too obviously jingoistic.
- Still…. Given the typical LEOs instinct to tase or baton at the first cross word from any citizen they might encounter, I’m surprised some codgers haven’t gotten killed here.
- Budget meeting at the White House? And this is b/c of the monuments outcry? Doesn’t compute to me, I don’t see this overturning a week of bad press for the R’s.
- The President doesn’t walk away the victor by being the adult in the room. If he concedes on anything, he loses.
