Dear liberals: No matter what anyone claims, the Federal budget is 100% the responsibility of Congress. Period, full stop. Dear Conservatives: RIFs only apply to planned furloughs, not emergency shut-downs. This is not a brilliant master plan.
You know, George W. Bush was not a “great” President. He got ambushed by the repercussions of Bill Clinton’s policies, and while he was trying to do what needed to be done, he was continually set upon by some very powerful powerful folks.

—– Nature and other peer-review journals would send letters like this: Dear Dr. Einstein: Thank you for your submission. However, as you well know, the scientific consensus maintains that light propagates through the medium of luminiferous aether.
