From the 'Well, duh' file

This is why so many bloggers harp on the mainstream press. They just have idiotic headlines for stories people should already know. Analysis: Bush facing domestic challenges. A primo graf:

Given that the federal budget was $413 billion in the red last year, Bush lacks much of the traditional capital available to spend on his priorities.

"Making the tax cuts permanent would drain about a trillion dollars of revenue, at about the same time you would need an extra trillion or more for the Social Security plan," said Robert Bixby, executive director of the Concord Coalition, a bipartisan group advocating fiscal responsibility.

It's funny, but I remember saying that during the friggin' campaign. In fact, that's one of the reasons we bloggers tried to get you to elect John Kerry. But no, because Bush is "resolute" you had to go and vote for him.

I'm not trying to blame anybody (except Republicans), but the AP really should have written this story about a year ago.
