Trial balloons, "floating an idea", sure test the waters if you will. Even the press (TV) is using the term "trial balloons". I prefer test the waters. So what is new? Nothing. I stopped taking the press seriously years ago. I love watching Meet the press followed by Fox News Sunday. I have a standard rule. You match what a person says (or doesn't say) against with what a person does. That gives them credibility or not. Policitians are always "running" for an election and afraid to alienate a group large enough to throw them out of office. I believe like Mark Twain....that there is no native american criminal class, with the possible exception of congress. I trust no politician, no party, or the press. I gather news from multiple sources and compare and contrast them to distill as much of the truth as I can. Find the source, check the facts. Follow the money.
I couldn't agree with you more. Very well said.
