Washington continues to throw away millions of dollars on failed initiatives

Washington continues to throw away millions of dollars on failed initiatives

Washington's latest boondoggle: Extending the Bush-era Every Receiver Thrown Behind initiative -- another example of waste, fraud and abuse in the nation's capital.

But then, the Redskins are not the only D.C. area sports franchise to take the art of political metaphor to new highs..or lows.

The Nationals promised America that one man with virtually no track record but an amazing delivery could bring "HOPE" and transformation to Washington, and seemed stunned when things didn't work out like they'd promised their surge of new fans.

The Capitols are forever indebted to a rising foreign power.

And just like the Republicans on immigration, the Wizards believe that a large Wall can solve all of their problems.
