It's worth holding out hope for this, because Simpson's a good man—always been a renegade on the Republican side—and Bowles was experienced in Washington.</p> <p><a href="http://mypetpeeves.com/rant/28248" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://mypetpeeves.com/rant/28248#comments Business News & Events Political News & Events Government Current Events Economy & Money Politicians Political Parties Taxes Business Politics Other Peeves Alan Simpson Barack Obama Erskine Bowles fiscal responsibility Left Right & Center reform the President Tue, 23 Feb 2010 05:27:08 +0000 Matt Miller 28248 at http://mypetpeeves.com The President needs to get serious about jobs http://mypetpeeves.com/rant/28246 <p>The one thing that's for certain is we can not afford a repeat of the health care fiasco when it comes to jobs.

The latest ABC/Washington Post poll shows that 3/4 of Americans support openly gays in the military across all party lines. This is unprecedented—82% Democrats, 77% Independents and even 64% Republicans support gays in the military.
