We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It may be the "issue" he wants, but his responses to it for two-and-a-half years has amounted to "somebody should do something, meanwhile I am going to buy bales of fodder for my stable of unicorns and go on vacation so I can feed them."

This PotUS excoriates Congress for not agreeing to a trade agreement with Colombia that has been sitting on the Presidential desk since before he was elected (Bush did not want to submit it during an election frenzy). Not an isolated incident: if it works, it is his, otherwise it is someone else's fault.
At some point earlier this year, even the MSM started to point out stuff. Heck, just today a nationally-syndicated columnist said he just realised that contrary to what he and other supporters have been wailing this Administration DOES have an "energy policy" - to kill off any but solar and wind. Gosh, did they not listen to him before the election, or since? Oh, wait - of course they heard but did not listen, since he a Democrat fool instead of a Republican fool his explicit statements were nothing to remember for more than the time it took him to utter them.
Wow, Youngman ought to get overtime pay for spinning that hard. If he took more than 2 minutes to think about the problems with his thesis--and the many potentially fruitful ways for the R's to counter that strategy--he'd have to scrap his whole column idea.
