Frako's Substantive Response
No doubt this will come as a surprise to all, but I'm nominating our foreign friend Frako for POM.

I didn't agree to a thing in Frako's response. However, Frako's early response to this new thread was articulated well, addressing all of Chuck's cited points in a sensible, substantive and thought provoking manner.

ABE: Oops; forgot.

Re: Frako's Substantive Response
Hi Buz,
Thanks for using the POTM thread. Could you let us know which thread and most importantly which post you are actually nominating, preferably with a link to it.

Re: Frako's Substantive Response
I was editing my message while you were posting yours. Nevertheless thanks for the heads up.

Abe: When I went back to edit, I scrolled from the top, assuming that my message was the last. Perhaps you had already advised before I began editing, looking at the timing. My apologies for the need to explain, but don't want members to think I was not being honest as to the timing.

It's certainly unexpected for me to get a POTM nod from Moose of all people!

Thanks, Moose, seriously. Glad you liked it.

Yes, I will second that.

Yes, I am as disappointed as others, such as Rahvin, in the achievements of the Obama administration. But, as crashfrog points out, much of this is due to a spineless Democratic party in both the house and senate.

Thanks crashfrog, for laying out the details.
