Response to ClassWarrior (Reply #50)

Fri Dec 16, 2011, 01:54 AM

52. I think it is wrong to assume there's 1 & only 1 definition of "try" and that definition is 100%

what I/you/s/he/anyone says it is, other than the person(s) most directly in the position to do whatever.

I also think it is only somewhat less problematic to think if there are more than 1 definition of "try", we know all of them well enough to identify whether they apply - problematic especially in this new-universe of Citizens' United AND the Derivative Crash of 08 that has probably exposed American equity (and we don't know how much) to FOREIGN creditors, while our debtor Financial Sector sits on piles of Treasury Bonds (and lets not even go into where the $$$ came from to purchase those ((tax cuts + bail outs))).

In short, who says he hasn't tried? Who has enough information, PRIVATE BUSINESS information mind you, especially about our toxic financial sector, who has enough of that kind of information, plus enough information about EVERYTHING PO has done, in order to make the determination that he hasn't tried.

If he leads us off of a cliff, he'll still be ... well... a leader.
