You may think something momentous was achieved Monday when the House of Representatives approved a bill that prevented the nation from going over the so-called "fiscal cliff." But you'd be wrong.
Yes, taxes went up – as we all knew they would – but virtually no other aspect of America's financial dilemma was addressed. All we got were more cynical promises that the real problems would be taken care of somewhere down the road. And given the current players involved, that's not very encouraging.
Where are the leaders – the big thinkers who understand the issues facing this country are bigger than themselves? The men and women who grasp the fact that literally nothing is ever going to be accomplished without real compromise?
President Obama's taunting demeanor in announcing the deal certainly didn't give anyone the impression of bipartisanship. Meanwhile, the stubborn refusal of a Republican Party held hostage by its Tea Party base to allow any give-and-take whatsoever prevents that side from claiming any moral high ground either.
I'm afraid the few smart, responsible people remaining in government are hopelessly outnumbered by the buffoons who -- like Charlie Sheen -- like to boast that they're "winning" when, in fact, they're doing anything but.
Unlike Mr. Sheen however, these idiots aren't just harming themselves, but America and the entire world. And as long as they persist in their clueless posturing, we can expect the bleak outlook to continue.
